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

 #oink Farm life in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania ...That'll do, pig.
 They all had dreams. They all had family. They died for us. Arlington National Cemetery is a heavy place, I can't help but think about all the pain and suffering when presented with row upon row of a headstone representing a fallen soldier and my mind boggles that this still happens today. On this little planet hurtling through an incomprehensible ginormous space - some people think it is ok to kill each other. :( p.s. You should google Cornelius H. Charlton - his story is interesting p.p.s My grandfather is buried in Arlington- my Mom's father was instrumental in designing and implementing early radar systems for the Navy in WW2. Captured with the #Sony #a7RII and #Canon #70200L at 200mm and f/3.2
 #mondaymorningshare - I want to see your failed experiments or favorite photos from the last week. GO TO http://photorec.tv/fb to share your fav image from the past week. Here's my #failedexperiment The US Capitol at Sunset. File this under because I could - a 2 minute exposure with the use of a NISI Filters 10-stop ND. I hoped I would get some interesting wispy movement in the clouds but nothing developed. Next I tried a 6 minute exposure (swipe to see it) and while there may be a little more movement in the clouds it certainly wasn't anything to get excited about. And while I often recommend very carefully shooting building and monuments as symmetrically as possible, I purposefully shot from right of center to avoid losing Ulysses S. Grant statue in the front of the capitol. *  Sony #A7RII and #Canon 2470mm with #NiSiFilters #10StopND
