What a time to make a brand switch! I have another 30D coming in the mail to compliment the one that I got last week. Nikon stuff is all but gone.
30D amazes me at 800 and above ISO. Also, the lenses I wanted were only offered by Canon. I have a 17-55mm IS now and a 70-200mm f/4 IS coming.
My Speedlights came tonight, and I really like them with the ST-E2 transmitter.
Just playing around tonight since my 430EX's came in along with my ST-E2 transmitter.
So far, I'm very happy. Kinda sucks that I only control an A and B group as opposed to A, B and C, but whatever. I was happy to discover I can still shoot in AB mode and add as many singular manual 430EX's as I want. Cool. That means I can maintain AB ratios and still have a background and hairlight that doesnt change. If I need to adjust in manual, I have to go over to the flash, but thats okay by me. This is very cool. Anyway, here's a shot of the pup with 430EX shot thru an umbrella.
