I didn't log in, I was a guest. It should remember for guests too, that way if I add a few things, come back a week later to make my order, have to recreate and forget to add something, you lose money and it's a pain for the guests.

It might be too much hassle, if it's cookie based for guests and database based for registered users. You can always change the cookie expiry date though.

I will order stands, when I get to it, my next wedding's ages away though. You would't happen to have a small portable seamless background would you, suitable for babies or kids? I'd like an adult sized one but they'd be too big and heavy to carry around I think.

I've never seen a small one, they are all universal size to fit 1/2 and full rolls. Ours break down to take 1/2 or full size.

If the database is set up right, the guest has a unique cookie that identifies the shopping cart for regardless of whether there's an account. Then you need an expiration on old carts, though.

(For my money, accounts should be entirely optional. When I have a choice of vendors, I will always choose the one that doesn't make me jump through hoops to do business. Sometimes I want to have an account because I do a lot of business with that vendor. But (e.g.) when I'm buying new wheels for the sliding door in my rented house, I just want to get it done.)

All I want is a 10-2000 f/0.5L with no distortion that weighs 100 grams, fits in my pocket, and costs $300. Is that too much to ask?

The phottix stuff is really, really good.
The only thing better would be pocket wizards.

What sort of range do you want out of it?

These are good for 100M http://www.photofans.c​o.nz/goods.php?id=170 (external link)

These are supposed to be good for about 1500 feet (300m?) http://www.apix.co.nz …strKeyword=Radi​o%20Popper (external link)

Anything more than that you need pocket wizards.

That's a fair distance!


You may have to look at (if possible) running a fixed wire the majority of the way with the transmitter closer to the point you want the camera to trigger. The fixed wire triggered by a small push to make switch. Have the transmitter up on a pole and you may need to have the receiver mounted on the glazing rather than somewhere near the metal body work.

The big problem with all of these triggers are that they are very low power, totally unlike the transmitters that their radios and even some of the in-car video gear runs.
