I like shooting with the AD600BM, although with a 120 octa on the grip arm is looking just little bendy so I'm not going to put up a 180 anytime soon until I get that boom ordered anyway. Looking forward to those triggers to. I finally got the XT32c & used it yesterday in studio, much easier then the X1T to operate.

Speaking of lights, looking at getting a Nissin Di700 with Air1 remote as the TTL cable thing it not really working for me, any thoughts?

Thoughts? I hope you get it soon so I can hear what you think about it ;)

I really see these discussions as a trying to fit a peg into a hole that is not the same shape. I don't think anyone can swap to a mirrorless and expect it to be the same as a DSLR, it's not. The cameras are smaller and lighter as are the lenses, relatively, so the ergonomics are going to be different. I think it's a case for getting use to the equipment and being comfortable using it. I took about a year to do that, slow learner. I think Fuji will get there in flash land soon enough, the third party units that have good TTL and HSS [Soon] capabilities will be available this year, I'm talking Profoto, Elinchrom, Godox, Nissin etc.. really the system is all grown up now.

lmao! What you touched on is pretty spot on. I was trying to assist Alan in using the optimum setting so he won't be dissapointed.

But you summed it up this system is still growing, lots of opportunities for the future and if you need certain capabilities now just stick with what you have.

I have that exact setup along with the i60a, going to take headshots of my wife later today and I will post the results. So far the air commander works amazing. I can control light output in full manual, zoom and TTL compensation all from the top of my camera vs. walking over to each flash.

Great news, I like the little i40 but it's a bit on the low power side of things at times. I actually bought it because it has low power @ 1/256 so I can add just that little bit of light at events from on top of the camera. Looking for something with a bit more power that I can bang through an Elinchrom umbrella handheld at the odd event and good TTL is be helpful for this. I need to be small and fast for one in May and can get a Di700 + remote for less than the i60 plus the bigger size means it's easer to hold otherwise I'd have to attach a handle or something [Brass pipe like Zach Arais] I like shooting all manual but not when both hands are full, no assistant on this one :( unless I rope in a member of their staff.

Look forward to hearing your thoughts on the i60 and air1

I never was good in capturing my kids on swing with 5dmk3. Maybe I need to work on my technique. I agree with others, I used to and still do lot of missed shots using 35L, 85L, Sigma 35 art and this with 5dmk3. Maybe now the 80d is real good but I need to see some proof, AI servo sequences.:)

Here is one of my few swing shots, 1dmk2, sigma 30mm f1.4, taken @f1.4

IMAGE: http://www.bobbyzphotography.com/img/s/v-2/p63374355-5.jpg

I don't do much high ISO stuff. When I got the camera, I only used JPEGs as I didn't have right LR version. ISO6400, 1/25, f1.2. Soft I agree but this was jpeg and I am happy.

Here is a sequence of 20 shots from XT1, 50-140mm. Of course in good light. When I used to shoot 1dmk2, 300mm f2.8, I used to miss a few sometimes.

Pretty darn compelling evidence right there... and the newer cameras are even better.

I have a friend who shoots professional hokey. He was using DSLRs for focus speed and the sports were the only reason he kept the DSLR. Otherwise, he was a Fuji shooter. At some point, the Fuji rep leant him a lens (I think it was the 50-140) and asked him to "just try it" with his XT1. My friend was pretty skeptical. He shot it side by side with his DSLR and just felt like it wasn't as fast.

Then he got the images on his computer and discovered the Fuji images were almost all tack sharp and he had more keepers. He has shot this for years, so he has a good sense of what he gets. The DSLR was missing more shots. He tried a few more games, switching between them, and found he was getting better results with the Fuji. Now he has the XT2 and sold off the DSLR ;)

We talked about why it seems like the Nikon or Canon "feels" like it acquires focus faster. Suddenly, I realized that the Nikon (what I used to shoot) had a more dramatic vibration when locking in focus, where the Fuji glides in more smoothly. After some experiments, we agreed that this seemed consistent.

I think the photographer needs to know how to use the gear (cameras often work differently--especially the Xpro) and needs to compare results after they know the gear. Results are often impacted by a combination of factors.

At that point, you know the best answer FOR YOU, which is all that counts :)

This is a good observation. My 5d3 certainly cued me reassuringly on its AF lock regardless of actual results. Maybe in the next round of Fuji firmware updates they can offer some AF confidence booster akin to a mother's warm hug. ;-)a

Great choice of metaphors!

If they do, it should be optional, since it's more like a smack on the back with the hug ;).

I prefer the smooth shooting experience. Same goes for hugs :).
