No experience with the RP, but my ST-E2 has worked fine outdoors as long as there's LOS. Indoors, it works really well bouncing off walls. I also have used the Cactus on studio strobes. They are cheaply made, are prone to interference, and isn't very reliable. Can't argue with the price--I just get extras. I also have the PW II's which are the best in terms of range and reliability, but they cost too much. :(

One day, I'll have to invest in the RP Px series for E-TTL.

Ive got to say that the V4 are very good for the price as well and the service is incredible, i had mine for 2 months when my transmitter started to act up so I changed the battery but that was no the case I contacted the guys at "gadget" and the sent me a new one with no questions asked. they also have the mount fro tripod and the pc sync options, they hardly miss fire - maybe I have noticed it 2-3 times in over 2000 shots. I dont know about distance as i work in a very small studio..... Outside I have never used them on a great distance. However they are coming back out in the field as the 7d is very unreliable with wireless flash.

Really digging the new sharpening and noise reduction in LR3 beta.

This was a mirror imaged shot with only the right side of my face cloned and reversed over to the left side and some additional cloning to fill in all the eye detail...plus a few hundred other steps that I forgot already. :lol:

Cheers!

hehe I love mirrored face shots; sooo strangely unnerving

Thanks! :D

I put a lot of work into that one so glad to see it got a rise out of a few people! ;)

My next gig coming up this weekend is at a new recording studio in Hamilton, Ontario...about 60 miles south of Toronto. The owner saw my stuff on-line and wants me to shoot his studio for a web site he's having built by someone else so I'll really get to put my 14L to good use as he wants a shot that covers the entire studio, wall to wall without the fisheye effect as well as a bunch of more normal close ups on the various racks of gear and performance areas of the facility. So, I'm really looking forward to this shoot as the exposure will help me build my client base a bit more and put some food in the fridge! :cool:

Cheers!

So I may be selling my car Sunday and I'll have like $3,000 from the sale to play with. I can prolly get an additional $900-1,000 from selling my 1ds. Should I buy a 1ds2 and some L glass? Or go 5dII with some L glass? :confused:

I'd say rent one of each, or borrow/try one of your buddies' cams. and see which you'd like better. ;)

go with 5DII, if i don't have any new or 1series camera for example and now i have to decide between 5DII and 1DsII then i will go with 1DsII, there are some people told me they go with 5DII over 1DsIII, so how come they will go with 1DsII over 5DII if they didn't choose 1DsIII as a choice then?
