“I’ll Be Waiting…”

For those of you, yearning for the warmer days of summer, just consider…he’s waiting for the warmer days of summer as well.

A Shot A Day - 2016(B) (050A of 365)-(19-02)

A Shot A Day – 2016(B) (050A of 365)-(19-02)

Canon 5DSR, Canon EF100mm f/2.8 Macro IS USM

ISO 400 – 1/40 @ f/4 | 2X Nikon SBR200

Nikon SU800, 2X StoFen SBR 200 Diffuser

This shot, from this last summer, was a test shot of sorts.

I wanted to try making the Nikon SU800 / SBR200 macro system work with the Canon setup. Ultimately I was able to get it to work, of course in Manual Mode only (no ETTL / iTTL would have been possible). I shoot macro in manual mode the vast majority of the time anyways, so this was not a problem.

The one downside, the SU800 does not wake up on the half trigger press with the Canon as it does on the Nikon, but it gave good light and good control over the scene.
