The 5D MKII dynamic range continues to impress me. If the conditions are right, this camera can help you capture amazing details. While I wish it was faster (more frames per second) this camera rocks!

Fill flash continues to be a challenging subject and technique for many. While I must say that it takes time to master the technique, the best tip I can give you is to learn how to read the available light BEFORE using fill flash.

Manual exposure plays a HUGE roll as you have complete control over your exposure. Then, you set your fill flash to do just that.... FILL!

Go out, experiment and have fun!

Talking About Flash! - The Batteries I use - Featured Product From NatureScapes.net!


PowerEx MH-C801D battery charger - For Illustration Only

The PowerEx MH-C801D battery charger features eight independent circuits that charge 1 to 8 AA or AAA NiHM or NiCD batteries in any combination. Embedded with a high-rate battery conditioner, this unit will charge, deep-discharge and recharge batteries automatically for maximum rejuvenation. A new eight cell (0.001V resolution) microprocessor will charge batteries to their maximum capacity without overcharging or undercharging, providing maximum battery longevity.

The charger incorporates a large LCD screen displaying the charging status of each battery. This English language-based display (CHARGE, DONE, CONDITIONING, etc.) replaces traditional LED indicators.

Select between a soft charge and a fast charge mode. The soft charge delivers the highest battery life and allows 100% compatibility with older, lower capacity batteries, and takes approximately two hours. The fast charge allows eight batteries to be fully charged to their maximum capacity in about one hour!

The MH-C801D intelligent system will charge batteries anywhere around the world with a heavy duty switching AC Power Supply. This 100-240V, 50/60Hz universal adapter employs a rugged DIN connector for reliable contact.

Visit NatureScapes.net Store and get your batteries!!
