Something to seriously consider Eric, I have always thought my YS-250s were more dependable when triggered electrically. I could do it with my 7D but probably not while I'm here in Lembeh for the next couple of weeks. I'm triggering the my wife's little S100 Fix with a fiber and it's been flawless.
I've been running into all sorts of small issues I've never seen before. Today some button was half pressed so that I wasn't getting a review of the image I had just shot. I couldn't pull it back up to review. I've never seen that before. Very weird, it was like shooting film again. I was bracketing strobe power just like in the good old days and hoping something good would happen. I think my issues are a combination of my substantial rust and Neptune checking me out to see if I'm serious.
I'll keep at it. I reset the hot shoe connector this morning and it worked fine today.
