"I don’t think they can fire 1-4 at once, they can fire 1 A-D at once, the benefit is that you can remotely, choose which flash you want to fire, if not all of them and see what each individual flash is doing. and daisy chain them to get super far distances to trigger. The battery life on the III’s are horrible and as mentioned, the buttons are annoying too. Did you check out their $99 10 channel transceiver? not having an LCD, I bet the battery would be good and you still get the sleek new design."
"Getting rid of mine, http://www.ebay.com/itm/330918931530?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 I’m doing 48 US only, but if someone on here is trying to that is abroad, let me know and Ill amend this listing for you. shipping will prob be more tho."
"Thats t0.5 not t.01 which is around 1/8,333 of a second. Which is still super fast. however , that is at 25.4 Ws. which is not very much,"
"" if LR gets confused by that… and can’t do that… then how is it better for organizing?" I believe you can do that, it will give a notice that the file has been altered by another program and if you want to keep those adjustments or not and you say yes. Bridge is wonderful for what you said, organizing your folders. I think LR is better for organizing simply because you can re categorize and arrange images, without rearranging them in their actual folders. say I have skate shots of john doe in new york and in miami. I organize my images by city not skater. In LR, I can A) keyword all my images with John Doe and then filter all of John Doe’s photos in any city or B) I can create a collection called John Doe and manually drag all of John Doe’s pics to that collection. Even though it shows up in the John Doe Collection, the photos do not live there, they are still stored on your hard drive in the city its shot in, because thats how hypothetically we organize our database, by city. The keywording and everything is up to you, when you export you can make sure that info stays attached to that image by customizing metadata. I believe even in Finder you can add key words, you just right click and click more info and you can edit it. And from colleagues’ input, Ive been told Capture One does a better job of processing RAW than LR or ACR… Im still not sure if im answering your questions tho…"
"Its a harmonious process of both. Organize your images via Finder usually by job. but I don’t shoot pro very often so i do it by camera and then in Lightroom, you create collections. Lightroom doesn’t do anything to the images themselves it just attaches data to them that can be removed later if desired. many commercial professionals use it. You can batch tag and add in your own custom tags or also find large libraries of preexisting tags online. So between stars, tags and collections you’ve created, you can run a query to get the images you want all in one. I worked for one of the largest still life photographers in the country(usa) and he used Lightroom in this fashion. Maybe I didnt understand the question clearly, but I def would never just throw all my images into one folder and completely regulate and organize it solely with lightroom."
"The lighting needs to be from more of an angle, not so close to camera. I think you could have also got an angle that shows he has to thread the needle between the wall and telephone pole on the landing."
"It’s not just skate photogs, I also think it makes the camera feel more like a tool in your hands than just some fancy gadget."
