What's your budget? Mind shooting manual only? I keep hearing good things about the YN560/565, although my experience with the YNs is that you get what you pay for, and that it's better to invest in a 430EX ii or a 580EX ii if you need the power consistently, built with higher quality construction and with E-TTL

No budget, but I am not going for the expensive flashes so ~$200 or less since that is what the 430EXII goes for. Manuial or auto doesn't matter, but since I have teh wireless master built in the 60D I don't want to waste it.

I am really thinking of geting the YN again, but the HSS on the 430EXII makes me want it. I can definitly use HSS in the day for portraits and such. I think i'm going to get one used soon.

Have you used HSS yet? I know it cuts power, but is it that bad?
post #19023 of 29551
HSS is pretty good. Yeah, it cuts down power (I believe worst case scenario is cutting it down to around 1/6th the power). That being said, it's definitely useful in the daytime to tame backlit sun shots. The only thing I'm not 100% sure of (haven't done it yet) is whether or not HSS works with the in-camera wireless master on the 60D or 7D.. I'll have to give that a shot though! I've really become an off camera flash / multiple strobes junkie in my thinking lately, and I have most of the tools to use it effectively (I think..)

Maybe I'll try to setup a shot of all of my gear at some point. I'll even take it with my old A590IS so my S95 can be in the photo, heh.

I've heard mixed things. IDK either.

Lets see what you got.thumb.gif

whoa, Adorama is out of 430 EX iis... after a rebate... I wonder if the new model is in the pipeline. I keep hearing that it is.. something also about color correction.

B&H appears to have new ones.. not bad, $254..

but man, even the used market is thinning out. Seems like they're suddenly a little harder to come by than normal. Maybe I should consider selling both of mine and picking up another 580..

Ok, photo thread regs, I have the wheels spinning on a project like the where's nifty but for this smaller group of people -- I'll elaborate more on lunch.

Ooh, sounds fun.

100 bucks? Sounds... awfully low, no? Those aren't the 2x3, are they? I haven't done too much looking on field cameras, but they are awesome.
post #19030 of 29551
It's a 4x5 press camera. The standard price seems to be $150-200, but this one doesn't have the original lens (not that I care- it's awful), and the focal plane shutter needs to be CLA'ed.
