Mike you know that was me! I was trying to back up to get another shot of the group as I was waiting for the RX100 to recycle, damn point and shoots.   We found them to be super sedate, a little curious but never threating.  You can see the spot where one comes up behind me and I kick it.  It just continued on, no big deal.

Final Update:  In the end I bought a "used" MB Air 11" for half the price of the new MB.  It works great with Photoshop, I would assume the new MB is as good or even better.  Was lazy and used Apple's "Recycle" program to get a store credit for my old 15" MB.

This and a 15mm and I would be happy just about anywhere.  Would make for an interesting trip portfolio.

I have never used TTL.  When I see amazing shots it is often due to the creative way people have lit them.  So to the above I would ad, be creative with your strobe positioning.  Here is an old Powerpoint presentation I did. https://www.youtube....h?v=ldCw80PSugY


It's the shots at Wetpixel that make me think "wow how did they light that?" I find  inspiring.  

In Topic: Good High Power Video Lights?

The Sola 4000 (old version) were good lights but when the battery finally went out they did not have any spares, so it was toast.  Using the I-Torch Pro 7s with a Canon HF G30/Gates Housing.
