A friend of mine was nice enough to lend me his X100 for a snowboard photoshoot this weekend. I took it home and did a couple test shots with my Elinchrom Ranger at 1/1000. I'm really impressed with how even the light is across the entire frame, which is exactly what I was hoping for. I'm now majorly considering buying another body for this sole reason alone. I know some of you are probably thinking, WHY?! The ranger has a very short flash duration when used with the Freelite A head. Right. It does, however, it's not enough and I also want to kill more ambient. I hate filters - I find focusing becomes more difficult. So with that said, I'm curious what other cameras are out there that can help me achieve the same result. Fast shutter speeds that also sync with my flash.
I was about to pull the trigger on a local used X100S yesterday but someone beat me to it. Now I'm thinking perhaps I should do a little more research and see what my options are. I am not looking to spend more than $1500 at the absolute most. Ideally, I would like to spend closer to $1000-$1200 (willing to buy used). This means I am NOT interested in medium format :P.
Thanks in advance!
