In Topic: New S&S YS-D1 strobe - overheating problem?

Looking at that page I'm sorta interested in the second bullet point:

"Do not attempt to activate the flash on the unit with the flash facing downward."

In Topic: Canon 100mm Macro lens. IS or not IS ???

07 June 2011 - 02:13 PM

Aside from the other comments, If you may want to shoot any macro video I'd highly suggest the version with IS. I don't shoot video
much (snapshot-like work), but like to have the option and the IS makes this MUCH more useable at 100MM without a tripod.
I had some bracing for this shot, but the IS certainly helped a lot too:

I'm considering purchasing a Canon 100mm Macro lens. I see that the lens is available either WITH or WITHOUT Image Stabilization.

Is it worth spending the extra money to get the version WITH Image Stabilization.

Port availability should not be a problem - I hope to be able to use my existing macro port (Canon 60mm) with a couple of extensions.

Thanks for any advice provided.
