Reader Questions:

Brecht Geeraerts Maybe a quick question for tonight’s show: with the recent release of the 5D S (R) and the rumours of a 5D mark iv (announced maybe Q4 2015) would you still recommend getting a mark iii at this point in time for the enthusiast canon shooter?



Q: I have a 430exii & want a Yongnuo 600ex-rt to use  off camera. Which trigger do I need? Can I fire 430 off-camera w/o an external trigger but not have the in-camera flash go off? a speedlite newbie

Craig Lance

Well, I just wanted to correct something I said in a previous show regarding lightning photography. I was using Magic Lantern and said I triggered the shutter using sound.  It was Motion Detection.

Craig Lance

Yes, how can you MAKE lightning happen?

Roger M Hunt

I read today in Amateur Photography that it’s ‘normal’ to shoot with the mirror locked up with a telephoto lens so as to avoid vibration from the mechanism . . . . so what’s the score?

Craig Lance

I do have a closing question: Best way to photography police.

James Yahn

Can I just come and help out with your photoshoots as an intern to support you both?

Roger M Hunt

We need a Patreon badge . . . or better still . . . where’s the mugs?

 #bison #snowface ~  Captured with the #Sony #a7rII and Canon 100-400 and heavily cropped because I follow the #YellowstonePledge :)
 In Yellowstone National Park the roads are paved with snow and go straight for miles. Yesterday was sweet, today was the sweetest! Captured here on our way to Hayden Valley - a #dreamyplace like no other. #YellowstonePledge ~  Captured with the #Sony #A7RII and Canon 24-105 lens
 Yesterday ended as epically as it began (see my earlier post?) As we made our way out of the park the setting sun lit up this line of trees and steam from geothermal activity - a single line of animal tracks lead the way to this scene. #iloveyellowstonenp #YellowstonePledge ~  Captured with the #Sony #A7RII and Canon 70-200 ️‍️ EXIF: Exactly the same as the morning shot posted earlier.
