Whats the difference between the two if you are working with only Canon flashes?
Differences are radio vs IR. Manual setup vs ETTL.
Only advantage to ST-e2 is ETTL and cost. If you really want/need radio and don't want to spend the $$$, look into the e-bay (gadget infinity/cactus) triggers.
the st-e2 is line of sight only. pocket wizards will work through pretty much anything and with almost any flash with the right adapter.
So tits, the "strobist" shot that you took of your daughter at the computer, how did you do that???
the cactus triggers are pretty decent. I haven't used them at long ranges, but they've worked pretty well for me. Not the most durable, but for the price I can't complain.
I have some cactus triggers with an added antenna so they work long range just fine. They won't sync perfectly above 1/160s though, 1/200 is close but there's a tiny strip where it doesn't quite catch the flash. Can't complain though, only spent $50 for trasmitter and 2 receivers. Paid $4 shipping, looked at the package and it cost them $23 to ship it They can't be making much profit off these things
Same way the strobist did it
I know where the flashes were placed, just how did you fire them?
this gets discussed a lot lately.
orly? Show me a thread it has been discussed in
