What a pain in the @$$. This is part of the reason I hate FB - too many computer-geek demigods who spend all their time there and would literally burst into flames if they actually went outside on a sunny day :lol: I got flamed on one group for quoting an idea that some of the members thought was "too simplistic." There'd been enough BS on the group previously that I just dropped it.

This is all the more reason we need to make sure this forum stays up & healthy.

#258206 What about a D7000 for a 2nd body?

Posted by justshootit on 07 December 2018 - 08:35 PM

FWIW, I'm going to stay out of the mirrorless game until they release the sensor that can electronically do flash sync all through the shutter speed range like the D70 and D1 series cameras could.  Plus I have to transition out of all my "screwdriver-focus" AF and AFD lenses that won't AF on the mirrorless bodies.  


Plus, $850 for a 35mm f/1.8 and $550 for a 50mm f/1.8??  O U C H ! ! !

#258052 Quick lens review

Posted by justshootit on 02 December 2018 - 12:52 AM

First, as some of you know, I bought an old 28-200G lens because my 28-300VR is pretty heavy and I need a lighter lens for travel.  So far I'm impressed.  The lens is smooth and focuses quietly and quickly.  The zoom is very smooth and the lens is just a tad bigger than the 50/1.4 and probably a little lighter.  It's really sharp -- witness the photo below.  Not a bad purchase for 3 bills.

From Rim of the World drive in the San Bernardino mountains.  Clouds were covering the lower peaks and we got a perfect vantage point.

#257364 GODOX Studio Strobe AD200

Posted by justshootit on 30 October 2018 - 09:35 PM

They also have the AD400 Pro which has TTL, HSS, and a very bright modeling light. There's a separate head coming for the AD400 Pro that will allow you to use it like a pack and head system. Mount the head on the top of the stand and put the body of the flash 6 feet below it where it can be used like a sandbag.
