Just got it last week. I've only had a chance to use it briefly.
she's got that "i know you're gonna jerkit to this pic later" look to her
love the ringflash look. which one did you get?
hmm photo looks soft. also just looks like a straight on flash instead of a ring flash.
is that only ringflash? looks good i want one too, but i need to stop buying gear for a while
Not quite up to my "jerkit" standards.
I bought the Ray flash. www.expoimaging.net/product-detail....lash_Adapter&gclid=CL3pufSp_ZgCFQVhnAodXWStng
I'm having mixed feelings about it because it doesn't work well with shorter focal length lenses. I get a "ring of light" that appears in the edges of the frame even though I can't see the flash in the viewfinder.
It isn't and it doesn't.
can you fit it on a lens with a hood attached? Maybe that would help with the light on the edges of the frame?
Yes, it's diameter is large enough for most hoods except my 16-35 and 24. I used it with the 50 with the hood and still got a bit of the flash in the shot. Nothing I can't crop out but still....
However, it's almost worthless with the 16-35. The above pic had the ring completely covering the right side. I had to PS it out.
not trying to be a jerk but am i really the only one that thinks this image is a bit soft? i mean look at her eyes and hair.
please prove me wrong with a 100% crop or something.
and ive heard negative things about the rays adapter
I think it's just the craptastic photobucket jpeg compression that's making it look like that
I'm at my office. The original is on my home computer. I really don't need to pixel-peep the image by posting 100% crops. Trust me, it's sharp enough.
What you're seeing is a lower quality photobucket-hosted pic.
And for the Rays adapter, the build quality is fine. The only issues I'm having with it I've discussed above.
ringflash is great, but mine sure makes my camera heavy.
you don't have a flickr/zooomr/smugmug account?
ok cool. but can we please stop the fucking defensiveness when you put up a photo for others to see? jesus, i told you what i saw and i commented on it. is that too difficult to hear old man? quit posting if all youre gonna do is bitch when someone mentions anything other than cool pics! awesome!
or maybe all you want to do is fish for compliments
photobucket is making that pic look meh then
slow down, killer.
i already regret my post above, im in a shitty mood.
Cool your jets son, it's all good.
I have smugmug but I've only used it once. In typical Jcolman fashion, I forgot that I even had the damn thing.
Seriously, photobucket works for all that I need it to do.
doesn't smugmug cost money?
at the very least, smugmug won't reduce the jpeg quality to 10%
get a flickr account, you fool. $25/yr can't be beat.
first OTAP ethug.txt?
no hawt daughter, no care
I'll probably change accounts once my photobucket account expires. I'm paid up thru July or August I think.
