    Talking Pulled the trigger and spent more money

    Well my 3 Yongnuo 622C flash triggers are on there way $185 total not too bad paid more for those rubbish pixel knights
    Just to cap it off I also have just ordered a CamRanger NZ$418 all up, if I am Lucky I get away with GST
    So I guess I wont be getting anything else to play with this month

    Give an Artist a box of different sized colour blocks and he will create an art work; give me the same box and I will sort it by colour and then size :)

    Actually now it creates a new problem, I need a good swivel bracket type arrangement to attach my iPad to my tripod and other things, sort of some clamp arrangement any ideas?

    I wonder if John would be willing to drop his price on the top-spec Yongnuo flash a tad, $100 over the eBay price seems a bit excessive for a product nodobut purchased wholesale from Yongnuo themselves.
    I'd buy a set of these triggers to match the flash too :/

    If you dont like his price, then buy them from dx.com or Yongnuo Shop with the associated delays and freight etc.
    I think he has 565ex at about $250 which is not brilliant but not bad either

    Default Triggers arrived this morning

    Only paid him by bank transfer on Friday afternoon so dam good delivery.

    So far they look extremely positive. Yongnu 565ex and Sigma EF-500 DG Super are playing nicely together.

    $250 would be perfectly fine, the trademe price is $295 so significantly more. Will reach out to him.

    As far as I can determine there are Several versions of the 565 EX at the moment
    Std
    and a new model with HSS for cameras that support it

    Ah whoops, was meaning the 568, the latest with HSS and decent reviews thus far. Scratch that idea.
