Last year I "upgraded" and bought a Cheetah v850 and a Flashpoint Zoom-Lion flash (essentially the same flash), as well as a flashpoint streaklight 360. All manual, no TTL.

Last week I bought the Flashpoint TT350F as I figure for the rare occassion I have a flash on camera, and TTL would be beneficial, not to mention I could use the flash as a transmitter for the two above-mentioned flashes after I also bought the corresponding r2 receivers for them.

So it's been many years since I've

So I'm curious as to whether these manual flashes are able to achieve this now using the R2 system?

You won't be able to do HSS with the v850 as there is no way to update them to be functional with fuji's HSS.

Wasn't sure, as both the zoom li-on and cheetah light both had a HSS icon.

The last one was more smouldering (but still mostly safe for work).

This one is a bit more cinematic:

Just picked up a rokinon 12/2. Need to buy a 27/2.8 too. Planning on a Disney trip and only want to take the 12/18/27 combo for the trip with the xe3 I’ve preordered

I’ve also got the 35/56 but don’t think I’ll take those

I will be heading to disneyland next year with my kids. Hard call on the new camera your getting.... X-e3 with pancake lenses is still not a pocket camera. Zoom still trumps primes in many cases for good light shooting versatility. Amusement parks application zooms for me is a logical choice. I know as a fact that I can cover substantially more emotional expression and superior framing possibilities with a zoom on the go.

I'd use my 10-24mm and 16mm for me would provide UWA and in lower light fast glass. Talley a good compromise is to buy a 16-55 f/2.8. 27mm is too long for close proximity sitting and I'd rather have a stabilized 18mm on the kit zoom lens (instead of pancake 18mm) or versatile 16-55 zoom. Manual glass just isn't my choice of capturing fast action or quick moments to capture expression.

I think it's always a tough call on what lenses to bring.........your shooting style will determine if it jives with the lenses you bring.

Exactly. I've done two trips prior so I have a bit of experience and what I want to shoot and how.

Trip 1
7D
12-24 Tokina
24-105
no external flash just onboard

Trip 2
5D3
15-30 VC
25-70 VC
35 1.4
600exrt

What I realied is the UWA is needed and I also found that 12mm on crop (19mm) I never felt like I "needed" wider. Then 15mm on FF I felt like it was OK and useful. The VC worked well and the 2.8 was worth having. The 35 was a bit long at night but 1.4 was a must. Flash is really important to bounce flash and what "i'd want" But the weight was always killer for me. So for this trip I want light. I'm willing to compromise any convenience strictly for light but I do want options of focal length. I also know that F4 is simply NOT enough but F2 is doable. I know that the 12/18 will be all I really "need". If anything I'd like to have a fisheye too so I am also thinking of 8mm FE with the 12 and 18 combo. The 18 weighs nothing and the 12/8 both would be the heavier hitters at ~270g but and the 27 weighs nothing and the 35 is pretty light too. I know I typically travel w/ the 5D with a UWA zoom and a 50 1.4 so honestly something like a 8/12/18/35 would be the MOST I would take but I really want to FORCE myself to 3 lenses and I don't want slow glass. Period. I want the ISO levels to be low as I can. I will take the TT350F flash and I know it's not a powerful flash but will give me something.

Still deciding if we even need to take the T20 for her or what. One thing for sure... I'll use the rapid strap so I don't need a pocket camera. Then we will have her small Think tank urban approach 5. She has and will probalby want to take the 18-135 which is dumb but it's what she likes.

I keep telling myself... 12/18/35 only... nothing more and force myself to use that glass. Why would I need more? The 35 is really nice for portraits w/ the princesses with my girls.

Good solid thinking about the realities.

There is a lot to be said for the fisheye at Disney...

Ya the 12 would be plenty wide enough for dosney shots of the kids with background. For wide I want and like and really enjoy fisheyes.

I’ll probably end up with a 8FE/12/18 combo and have the 35 in the bag for those times I want a portrait.

My kit should be 3lbs. A far far lighter option Han the 12-13lb I have taken in the past.

Light is my forced priority this go round. I really want to enjoy the trip and enjoy my gear the whole day without fatigue.

Thanks for the links

I was at disney in Florida last year for the first time with my wife and 3 year old. I took my sony kit (a7rii, 18, 25, 85 at the time). I mainly used the 25, some 85 and a little less 18. In all honesty if I was to go back I would take my x100F and nothing else and just enjoy the park and the time with the family. I've come to realise that it's not all about "getting the shot" all the time.

YMMV

Walking back to my car after last nights shoot. The river Liffey reflecting what life was about.

Lent out my X-PRO2 with the 16-55 and the 90/2 to a friend, who also shoots Fuji, so he could make good on his camera club's promise to supply some fresh images for the local amateur rugby club for their website. There were a few of them involved. After shooting for the few hours he was very happy at the continuous tracking, even with the XF 55-200 attached he said his keeper rate was really good. I got the feeling he'll be upgrading his X-T1 soon.

As a result I spend the afternoon with my X-T1 and the 18/2 on it. Normally I'd just take the xpro2, now only using the X-T1 in work - big screen makes manual focus easy, you can really feel the difference in speed, in how the newer cameras are just a bit quicker at doing everything. Still nice to be able to take the time to shoot a bit slower, been all work lately.
