Bowens BW6611 Air Cushioned Stand Review
1532670.jpg
As a relative newb to strobist work I bought this as an upgrade for a pair of cheap generic 2m tall photo stands I had been using. Really like Bowens umbrellas so figured their stands would be as good. Did compare to Manfrotto 1004, which is probably just as tall but much heavier and pricier Main...

Changyin CY-20 Flash Review
changyin-cy20-02.jpg
It's a tiny flash unit, taking up little space in your bag. Unfortunately, my unit, even with fresh Eneloop Pros, is underpowered, and produces about two stops less light than ideal for coverage/even exposure. It's easy enough to stop down, but it's something to be aware when using the chart on the ...

Pentax Cable Release Review
Cable_Releases.JPG
Not much to review here, these are traditional cables releases from the Pentax film days and will work on any camera with a cable release socket on the shutter button. The only camera that I have that does not have this socket, is the Pentax manual focus film body P5/50. I have both the 30cm and ...

Megagear MG897 Black Review
746195f0a65056d055022352f972cb5be926889d-1.jpg
Looks like a Spider pro wrist strap. My review from Amazon- The snap buttons seem cheap, some had scuff marks on them. The leather is thin. The wrist strap sheds a lot of leather dust/particles. If I were patient I could get the same one from China for $5. The screw at the bottom unscrews easily....

Pentax Hot-Shoe Adapter LS Review
Hot-Shoe_Adapter_LS-2.jpg
I bought this hot-shoe adapter LS (leaf-shutter) to connect my AF500FTZ flash to my Pentax 67 165/4 LS lens, while using my Pentax 67II camera. This is the only “Pentax” option that lets me to do this, as Pentax never make a 5P to X-Sync cable. The setup on my Pentax 67II is easy. I just mount the h...

Manfrotto Mini Ball Head 496RC2 Review
BG496RC2.jpg
Hi, I am confused! The April 13, 2016 review above says that the 496RC2 does not support panning? But several others, plus the info at the top, seems to say that it DOES support PANNING? Can someone clarify that? I thought the purpose of the second knob was to lock or unlock the panning? ...

Finally started using this after August 2017 purchase. I am not very hopeful..,. Hooked up off camera with Vela cord and unit uon power up erratically sounds like it zooms in/out... then smelled bad electrical smell. :confused: P owered off and removed batteries. A distinct sense of forboding lu...

k&f concept Pentax K/M/A/FA/DA Lenses to Sony E Camera Mount Adapter Review
Photo.jpg

Yongnuo YN585EX Review
YN585EX.jpg
This is a great unit for the money. I shoot weddings and a powerful PTTL unit with a tilt and swivel head is a must. The power output is quite a bit more than my AF360. The speed that you can change the flash compensation on the gun is much faster than my AF360 and faster than changing in camera wit...

Jessops Auto Extension Tubes PK-A Review
GX204559.JPG
Picked these up on eBay for £15 including p&p. I've only tried two lenses with it. The kit 18-55 won't fit and I'm not going to try to force it. The SMC-A 50/1.7 works fine. Despite the limited functionality I'm giving it 10 because it enables me to do what I want for fifteen quid.
