Um...I just turn them on in the order that happens...I try to do it the way you said but never always seem to. Turning them off also seems optional for me at times! :oops:

They are very good but can have their moments. Also, the range is not great (something to do with RF noise interfering with the signal).

Are the issues all down to the TTL do you think? Always heard such good things about the range/reliability on the standard triggers.

I never have this trouble with my cheap fleabay triggers everything set to manual and off you go :)

Are PW's not the holy grail of remote triggers I've been led to believe them to be?

Anyone know if Cyber Syncs have the same issues?

I moved away from the cheap triggers to get TTL and the legendary PW reliability. Either I'm doing something wrong or they aren't all they're cracked up to be.

Due to paid shoots trickling in I've moved on again though and taken delivery today of some of these (external link). Hope they can pay for themselves in a year :)

Chris I'll have to pee on your parade once more as I was on a shoot where a chap had some of those and he had trouble getting them to trigger as well. I don't think it matters what you've got if it has electrickery in it it'll fail at some point :)

Where do people hire lenses from?

lensesforhire.co.uk.

I got a L lens from them for the Olympics. Was delivered a day before the start of my rental by courrier and was returned the day after my rental ended by prepaid courrier. Painless and a pleasure to deal with.

Apart from not shooting TTL, my RF-602's are flawless, not had a single misfire and I use four of them at times when my studio is setup.. :D

Ooh, they are pretty... Out of my league but will still be interested to hear what you get up to with it.

At least you've got a new toy to play with as there are no new Macs on the horizon ;) :p

I've been given the latest bit of hi-tec kit that is guaranteed to do the job better and faster only for it to fail when you need it to many times to trust anything electric/computerised fully.

Ditto, although I don't use that much the 603's work every time, just a shame they don't have a lock for the hot shoe but a rubber band fixes that, also they work great as a wireless shutter release as well.

I see that Yongnuo have a new trigger coming out soon YN-622 E-TTL transceiver http://www.lightingrum​ours.com …iver-pixel-king-copy-2366 (external link) wonder if that's why PW are doing cash back

Ooh, very nice! I'm sure Sly will help you accessorize them! ;)

For all the gripe about PWs they are still a great tool and can produce some fab results. Like anything, I guess I need to use them more to really get confident with them.

I struggled with my PW's (plus II's) misfiring when I first got them, but after replacing the cheap leads they came with with some of these (external link) my problems went away completely. I've only had one issue since then and I think it was a combination of distance and the hacked sync port on my 580 (the original one, EX II's have been fine).

Also, /drool on the quadras. I really wanted to get a set last year, but my current shooting volume just doesn't justify it. (not that I could afford them now anyway :))

Ditto that. I've only ever rented one lens ever, but it was from those guys and they were brilliant. The only difficult part about the experience was giving the lens back at the end :)

Hi guys. Looks as though my job might be for the chop. The private equity firm that's bought my company are making wide-ranging cuts - people in the states, Australia and Asia have already been let go. They're unable to make cuts yet in Europe due to employment laws and the fact that many people are on holiday in August.

We're due to start the process next month sometime when we at least know who's at risk and who isn't. It's possible that they might hand out cheques along with presenting a spade & trowel.

An unsettling time. I've really enjoyed working for those people. I fear that even if I do keep the job, the processes and pressures will make the job very unenjoyable.

there seem to be lots of different types of paper on there, then when you read the reviews they all sound like they've been written by the seller! if it sounds too good to be true it likely is - fortunately I had some vouchers burning a hole in my pocket so I spent them on the paper Linda recommended! full review to follow! :D

Oh good, yes I will be interested in what you think of it. I have tried various papers over the years and all have been so so, but I really did like the Canon gloss photo pro (or whatever that one is called lol).

It's hard not to be affected like that. Here's one shot from there that I particularly liked. The first 2 headstones are for unidentified troops. It says "A Soldier Of The Great War" and covered by the flowers "Known Unto God". It is incredibly moving to see the care and reverence with which these places are treated.
