In Topic: Upgrade to YS-D1 or Z240-Questions

28 April 2014 - 10:40 PM

i have used the Z240s for years now and love them.  Sea and Sea seem easier to setup though.  My wife uses YS-110a and i also think that they are quality kit as wel;l but the Inon have the edge for me.  i like the battery compartment and it seems that with eneloops the Z240s seem to recycle faster and they are easier to pack and travel with.  and a bit wider? and switching between the two i seem to find them easier to position for CFWA.  Size helps for Macro as well.  I also use the warming filters as in some situations they can be a bit cold..  you couldn't go wrong with either..

 

good luck on that choice ;)

it definitely looks as though the SMC is sharper than my macro mate and quite a bit stronger. 

 

Alex do you find locking focus an issue or do you use the focus lock and slowly edge into position?

 

Nice shots as always!!

Nice to see what is under the rigs normally (I used ) to be standing on them!  at least they are giving something back..

In Topic: Nikon DF - Why is it not talked about?

Hope the wee man is doing well....

 

Not sure that it would take off - a brand new housing for a camera that may have limited appeal... i think that modern controls are ergononmics have a lot more to offer than the rotatry dials on this camera.  i think that you will buy it because of the way it looks rather than functionality?
