Im amazed that the sky is still so blown out. Ive seen midday pictures using the einstein at full power that are balancing the sky light or even darkening it.

That sounds like the lens was closed down instead of wide open? Correct me if I'm wrong

Well, that would be true except you're overcoming the "closing down" by putting the ND filter on the lens.

I'm trying to decide between a set of triggers that allow HSS with strobes or a couple of ND filters. What are the pros and cons of each?

The cons of HSS is the loss of power from your flash in HSS mode. If you are using modifiers that eats even more light. So you may have to have multiple speedlites very close to the subject to get what you want. With the strobes you can use larger modifiers and work at normal distances with the flashes. Focusing and composing can be a pain if you are going way deep with an ND filter.

Noticed that all have used strobes, single speedlight isn't sufficient is it?


Just my 2 Cents

A couple of bodies, a few lenses, a few lights, and a few modifiers.....Here to learn! :)

Most often this technique is used to compete with, if not overpower, midday light. In order to balance that a speedlite would be challenged.

There is no such thing as HSS with strobes. There is PockeWizard's "hypersync" technology which basically fires the strobe early. It has significant limitations that depend on shutter design and the flash duration.

Maybe someday some company will come out with a 1000ws strobe with HSS capability. Until that day comes, ND filters are your best bet.
