In Topic: YS-D1 Cutoff Issue

Today, 04:15 PM

Jack is correct, this is a classic example of shooting with the shutter speed too high, the curtain is closing before the strobe is firing. On the 7D, this problem is also variable, sometimes (1 in 5) it works fine but most of the time you get that kind of scenario, a black line through the shot. You can easily verify this at home on your kitchen table.

Tim:

The cap that comes with the Inon strobe has a removable bit. Cut the Toslink cable end to the same diameter as the hole in the cap. Simple.

In our lab we are happily metric, in the manufacturing side of the business everything is "English" (even though England is mostly metric, I think). 
As for American Stubbornness; I guess I plead guilty (still diving and still trying to get "amazing" photos) but maybe stubbornness can't make up for artistic talent.

The only issue with the 45 macro (the Panasonic/Leica) is that focus speed is not comparable to the 60. Here in LA, I mostly use the 60 for local macro stuff; and the 8 mm for what little WA I do shoot.

In that case it is a 3/8 16 the threads look to be too far apart to be the 3/8-24.
