I’ve just returned from California after an extremely awesome trip, thanks to Sony. But there was and still is no rest for the weary. This is just a quick update to let people know that Comic Con 2012 is happening right now in NYC. Yesterday, I used to the Olympus OMD EM5, Voigtlander 17.5mm f0.95, PocketWizard Plus III triggers, and the Paul C Buff Einstein E640. In my opinion, the kit was excellent. The only major issues I had was that I forgot to turn off the IR triggering mode so that whenever someone else’s flash went off, mine would too. But eventually, I looked at the manual and figured it out. The color output from the Einstein is super consistent and all the images were shot bare bulb or bounced off of a ceiling of some sort. Accounting for the fact that the Javitz Center has 45 foot high ceilings, I was amazed at how just how much power the light could output. The Voigtlander was a bit tough to focus sometimes so what I often did was opened the lens up and then stopped it down; otherwise it created a super dark viewfinder.
And the results so far? Well, you tell me. A full report is yet to come, so stay tuned.
