    Best Flash Bracket System for Wildlife Photography

    Oh wow! Instinctively I favored the full ring over the half one, but I didn't know the Full Ring cannot be separated! That's a very valid point (I also happen to have a 1D X). Thanks for that very important highlight, Neuro!

    Best Flash Bracket System for Wildlife Photography

    Hello Maximilian, thank you for your contribution. I'm with you on this and totally for the well being of animals. I'm only sparingly using flash in extreme backlit situations.

    What's the purpose/market of the 400mm f4 IS DO II?

    Adobe Creative Cloud bug deletes Mac user .

    yet another reason to stick with 'offline' software and not support this new craze that only benefits large corporations and their intellectual property - over the actual end user. I feel sorry for the people experiencing data loss, that's no fun for anyone!

    7D II vs SL1/100D?

    Before I get lynched daring to compare these two bodies please consider this: I learned DSLR photography on my reliable little SL1/100D, but I feel I somehow 'outgrew' this little gem... What I like to photograph: -(40%) Animals/Wildlife -(25%) People/Street photography, available light, no...
