    Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM

    Wasn't sure about the most appropriate place to post this, but I hope this will do for now.

I'm not going to translate the article by Magnus Fröderberg, because I'm sure you just...

    Suggestion: After bots and SPAMMERS have visited the forum...

    ...it could perhaps be a wise idea to clean out all those posts in order to stop them from showing up on the front page on the site. Right now they're given a free advertising column showing all those goodies.

    Sekonic C-700(R)

    I've just read a short press-release/article about the Sekonic Spectromaster C-700. (The R-version has built in radio transmitter by Pocket Wizard for remote firing of flashes.) Is this as new as it seem to me, or have I not paid enough attention to light meters? Never heard of light meters...

    Your experience of Metz flashes.

    It took me years to buy my first dSLR, and I suspect that it will take me another bunch of years until I buy my first serious flash. I had my first experience with a Metz "hammerhead" on a Nikon F-something back in the mid 80's, and it had a colour consistency like no other flash and it was...
