    Tamron 150-600 with Sigma TC1.4

    Thanks, I have D7100 & D600, would probably use it on the D7100 for wild life - don't want to get too close to the wild lions. IQ looks ok from that image - how do your rate IQ?

    Tamron 150-600 with Sigma TC1.4

    Has anyone tried using the non G2 Tamron 150-600 with a sigma (or other) TC 1.4? I have seen on another thread that canon users appear to be able to use this combination. Can Nikons also use it? Nikon say their AF is good for f8 but this will be f9 @600mm

    NAS Drives

    You could use a NAS but unless you have a leased line you upload speed is limited. go with an online provider like ProDropbox. Look at ftp sites too

    The vividness of a photo

    Do you use lightroom and do you shoot raw? With raw you really need to 'develop' the image in post. In the above image try shifting highlights up, clarity up (I always add vibrance if using clarity). There are loads of other tools that can make your images POP!

    Regret Going (or not) A2 vs A3+ ?

    A3 printers I'm are rediculously priced for that extra 90mm. I went A2 then cried when it broke

    iPhone 7

    What ino vation 2x optical zoom and bluetooth headset. Now if it's just numbers your after try the Samsung K zoom. 20mp camera, variable zoom and the choice of bt or jack for music. And you know apple will use a special protocol so you must buy apple buds sometime in the future. I'll be...

    Epson Scanner issues

    Not sure if this the right forum but..... I have a Epson scanner - it still works fine but the PC interface has stopped working. It appears to load but stays minimised. I've tried maximising via task manger, re-installed the app and uninstalled and reinstalled the whole Epson suite. Running...

    Tamron 150/600mm len

    @Wasp did you send it to Tamron? I'm sure they will refund the postage as it is a design fault

    Emergency replacement PC

    My pc has just died in the middle of a project (as well as real work and life). I can't afford to wait too long so probably stuck with a currys buy. Are any mobile gpus compatible with LR/PS? My suggestion is...

    First softbox

    OK guys, decision made. I'm getting this one http://www.amazon.co.uk/Neewer-60x60cm-Softbox-600EX-RT-Speedlite/dp/B016MKKAXI/ref=sr_1_8?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1448922182&sr=1-8&keywords=S+type+softbox What else do I need? I'm guessing just a stand? (remember its for a speed light)

    First softbox

    thanks guys but pretty confused now. As I'm aiming to do waist up portraits is the 60x90 a better size? I presume the softbox is slightly higher then the target and angled slightly down (Which is why @Phil V says the octagon version is no good)? I will need an s bracket as beam is a bit awkward...

    First softbox

    That was just the pose I tend to shoot but to me it looks really flat, its was taken in shadow on a sunny day. I've only just noticed both suggestions are outside the UK with a long lead time

    First softbox

    @Garry Edwards I hear what you are saying about cost but I already have the 3 flashes and they are easier to store. This is the type of image I'm looking for cam sml by Pete, on Flickr

    First softbox

    Thanks for the replies. room is 10 x10m but may have to use the 4x5m room.ceiling height 3m. I was going to use speedlights purely because I do not do enough to warrant the cost of studio lights. Speedlights are sb910 & 2x YN510 (maybe a 568 if I treat my self). @Brian_of_Bozeat those were the...

    First softbox

    I'm looking for a softbox for primarily corporate style portraits. If we start with I know nothing, what type of soft box do I need i.e size, shape, grid? I was thinking of using a 2 flash setup but any advice on that would also be appreciated.

    Kit for wedding and out of studio portraits

    Just a simple question (if there is ever a thing): What's the best lenses for weddings and portraits. FX & DX options please. My thoughts were 85 1.4, 24-70 & 70-200. Without being too rude I hope that @Phil V might have an input on this

    How much light?

    @sk66 in the booklet I got with it states 49' iso 100 & 1020 lux. The 'flash' has 2 functions, on & flash (which is on low and then flashes with shutter). The flash mode appears to supply much light then the constant. On the same settings I used in my previous post the subject was only just...

    How much light?

    I played last night with my old Amaran Halo HN100. It is supposed to be Guide Number: 49' at ISO 100 Correct exposure was achieved at 1/60 f/5.6 iso100 500mm (1.64') distance. working on the equation f/5.6=GN59/1.64 doesn't work. Given the distance is right and aperture is right the true guide...

    How much light?

    @RichardTaylor that is really helpful. From your numbers I guess this little beauty will be ok for macro and fill-in flash in most situations...

    How much light?

    example: using 90mm Macro @iso 100, f28 (for dof) on a DX. now what flash do I need at 500mm closest to be out of shot. No ambient light

    How much light?

    Now this is probably a very dumb question (mine normally are). Is there an equation that will allow me to calculate the amount of light needed for a particular shoot? I.e. I'm in a completely dark room. I'm shooting @ 100ISO at F22. As flash are measured in GNs I guess I need distance and GNs...
