You HDR fanatics might be interested in my review of the Promote Control remote shutter device. It's extremely handy for HDR...

You can take my 100-400 L away when you pry it from my cold, dead fingers.

Wow...excellent review! I checked out the links from your review as well and this seems like something for my Christmas Wish List. I can't wait to see some of your night pics using this.

What if the Hokey Pokey is really what it's all about?

A weird thing about the Promote Remote is that it doesn't appear to force the output of the relevant exposure "bracketing" information in the EXIF data like internal camera bracketing does (how could it?). the result is that HDR software hasn't much of a clue how much each frame is 'off' from the nominal ideal or what the correct sequence is. So the result is you have to input each EV by hand - at least I do so far - which gets a bit tedious. Whereas images produced from (say) three internally bracketed exposures slot right in to the HDR software like a dream.
