Val we had supper with Grant last night.

MAN he knows his way around a camera !!!!


He is now busy with a write up on 5D Mk3, in addition to the focussing article. HOPE he gets it done now, Mid February he is heading out to North Botswana as a photographic tour guide .....



600EX ... appart from the radio transmitter I do believe it is similar to my 580EX .... you want to pop over for a session ??

can take you through:
Sync speed,
first and second curtain,
ETTL and M settings,
flash for fill light in the day
using "gels" for creative lighting, etc ...


have not played with second curtain flash, though it is easy enough.


I have a set of Pocket Wizard remotes .... so you will still have to read the ST manual ... :tease: :surrender:
