It really does suck! I guess you can't have everything in this "budget" system.

The windows only thing is by far the biggest, and in my opinion inexcusable, problem with the godox system.

I have a windows box that I did updates with. Eventually I got a utility called Crossover that runs Windows apps in a shell on my Macs. Cheap, simple and works well.

I am downloading the window box thing now, 4gigs worth of files :oops:

Bobby I figured out the TTL versions are on 2.x and the non ttl verions are 1.x so now I don’t feel so behind.

From yesterday's test with Cognisys Stop Shot Studio and Elinchrom Hi-Sync.

My brother and my son are RC freaks, and this summer I have a few personal projects involving RC cars/boats etc. Anyone who tried to shoot action shots with RC cars knows timing is not easy...:-P this due to sheer timing but also because of shutter lag and radio trigger delays.

So here I'm testing a single laser (will try a laser crossbeam next) to trigger the camera at the "right time" which proved to work quite well even though the RC cars do not have a constant speed from shot to shot.:lol:

Lighting was quite basic, as the main goal here was to test out the timing and triggering. For the final project, I will probably use at least 4 packs.

i looked and replayed and looked a couple of times. it looks like youre running a Canon ST-E3-RT controller on your camera. if you ARE, i take it that the elinchroms can be triggered by it?

No, I don't own or using anything remotely Canon;-)a I use Elinchrom Skyport HS on my Sony A99ii to trigger the Elinchrom packs in Hi-Sync.

Nice but for that kind of effort, I would have loved to see track, some jumps etc to make it look more life like. Maybe some miniature lights inside the cabin.

Think you might have misunderstood the "effort" here.. :-) But I hear you, the final project will entail some more elements and a different setting, but these are bash cars, they are not built or meant to look lifelike. :-) But I do like the idea of a project like that, and my brother has a lot of cars so that is definitely something to try as well!

For those interested in repeatability, it was surprisingly easy, considering the human factor (controlling the course and speed of the car) For the RC enthusiast the cars used in the test where HPI and Tamiya cars.

Waste of time could be said about a lot of things.. including photography which the majority has as a hobby on this very forum. :-P

For my oldest (soon 15) it's a great hobby which has taught him a lot, I never helped him repair his cars, he had to learn for himself, call dealers and order spare parts etc. (and ask his uncle for advice now and then)

My youngest which is 3,5, he loves racing his boat on the lake, and I enjoy taking him to point I ordered my self a boat to.

So I agree it's a blast and for me time well spent with my kids and family, though I get what you are saying that it takes a lot of time if you're racing. But there are worse hobbies... like golf. ;-)a :p

Oh yeah. Of all the time wasting hobbies in my lifetime, that was easily the most fun. I raced with my nephews when they were teens. Hauled loads of red clay into my back yard in my pickup truck and built us a track that was really neat. I still have my Team Losi dirt buggy I'm gonna give to my grand son.

All of my remote camera enclosures were stolen after the launch from Wallops, so there's no choice. I have to show a flash setup.
