  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.

    Hi guys,

    just bought a pair if 603's and after testing them am very impressed, trigger every time, even on a continuous shooting mode - very pleased. The only frustrating thing is that they have no locking mechanism on the hot shoe adapter, not so much for on top of the camera but it becomes frustrating when I attach it to my 580EXII, especially when I want to angle the flash backwards to fill a reflective umbrella.

    Just wondering if anyone has come up with a work around other than black gaffer tape :)

    Frio Cold Shoe's look great but cost more than thr triggers! Think they are the long term solution but for now it will be an elastic band :D

    Do the Frio cold shoes lock tight right up against the hot shoe on a flash gun? Or just stop it falling off?

    Ooh, look, a link to my site! :D

    Yep, Frio's are brilliant, but way too expensive.
