  2. It is with deepest regret that we announce the passing of one of our long-standing members, Gary Coyle.
    Many visitors will recognise both his work as a sports photographer, and his name as a prominent community member. He registered with Talk Photography back in 2006, not long after the start of the site and has been a regular contributor since.

    It goes without saying that Gary will be sorely missed by many members, and his passing is a huge loss to the photography community.

    Our thoughts are with his family at this time.

    Funeral details :
    Dewsbury Crematorium
    Tuesday 13th September 2016 at 2pm.
    Afterwards at Batley IDLC (Batley Nash).
    All welcome.


    There is also a discussion thread here if anyone wishes to add their own thoughts.

    As the title says. I read a while back that my 7D has something to do with triggering flashes built in. I never shoot with flash, and haven't really had much experience with it, but it's something Id like to learn, so what would I need besides the 430exII to have off camera wireless flash? If anything at all?

    Im completely new to this area of photography so my apologies.

    Tried to edit the title, since the 430ex is a speedlite and Im having a bad day already... But I cant. So disregard the title!

    I mean radio triggers, or whatever you need to trigger it off camera wirelessly.

    You don't need radio triggers, but the IR-based trigger systems such as those built into the cameras have a very limited range outdoors

    You don't need anything else to trigger your flash. Just need to read the manual about setting the on board flash to trigger the speedlite and off you go.

    If however you go down the route of Radio Triggers then I recommend the RF-602 from Flash in the Pan. A little review is here
