I have that remote and works great on my 60D...I'm actually pretty glad I got one.

I haven't used that one, but this el cheapo (external link) does the trick for me.

But can I make a slightly more expensive suggestion? I mean, I like spending other people's money.

Why not pop for some Yongnuo 603 (external link)'s? They have, to my mind, several advantages, but some disadvantages, over the one you linked (so yes, i have both - actually 2 sets of the 603's so I can use both off camera flash and the remote function):

Advantages:


  1. RF vs IR - meaning that the 603's don't have to be line of site.
  2. Greater range
  3. Lets you do other things - you have a speed light, these will let you take it off camera (this is why I bought 'em) at a much lower price point than pocketwizards
  4. Fun! (at least for me) And isn't that why you have a nice DSLR and not just a P&S or cell phone cam?


Disadvantages:

  1. Price
  2. You have to run a cable from the transceiver in the hot shoe to the side of the 60D (but if you have multiple DSLR's, all you need to do is change the cable!)
  3. That spectacular Chinese build quality (although the opteka is likely sourced from china too, but still)
  4. I *think* you loose e-ttl if you use this and have your speedlight in the hot shoe (i.e. on camera) - but why would you want to do this if you can move it off camera (n/m - you need multiple sets to do this)?

I own a pair of those YN-603s for my 60D and they work fantastically well. Although I'm contemplating jumping on the 5Dc train and would have the wrong cable if I did that... Hrmmm... Oh well.

Also use the "el chepo" mentioned in this post. I quite like it.

For my Kodak 9250 I use Kodak Gold paper for my 8.5x11"s, and my print quality is great. Wish I could print 13"x19" though. :)

I also just got LR4, I honestly don't notice that many changes in it, a few nice ones in "Develop" (but that's really the only part I use). Are there any actions for CS5 that yall recommend?

Thank you! and welcome!
The canyon shot was taken with the EF-S17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM
Aperture f/18.0
Focal Length 20 mm
ISO Speed 100

It's a 3 shot bracket (-1,0,+1) HDR done in Nik's HDR Efex Pro followed up with some PP in Lightroom 3.

Any particular reason for f/18? I try not to go above f/11 or so because of diffraction, especially on shots like this where extra-DOF won't matter. What am I missing?

I like it, a great deal. Could use a bit more contrast, for my taste. But, lovely image.

Bingo!:)

All the way down to 18 on the 17-55 is going to start to get into the area where diffraction starts to show up, that is why I was asking. What need did you have for a long exposure? At that distance you should be hyperfocal at just about any aperture.

I agree.. some more contrast... and IME, slightly less vignette
