I have been too ill to use my camera (I had a head scan yesterday) and the Metz kit stopped working with my H3D11-50, and I have not tried it with the H4D-60... I can test the kit on the GH2 and try to work out if I need another SCA.
I did mount the flash on the bottom of the pistol grip - but, with 4kg weight of the camera and lens, it works better with the flash on a strap round my neck - a mono-pod would be another option. For seated diners (e.g.wedding reception) the fill needs to be quite high - or the table cloth can make a good fill reflector.
A couple passing through West McDonnell range in Australia's Northern Territory.
Six shot stitch using vertical 72mm XL exposures:
Ormiston Creek: Two shots shifting the back 20mm right and left on Rodenstock 32mm then cropped to 617 format. The lens gets pretty soft at the edge of the image circle but plenty useable with some tweaking. Not that great a comp but I love the ghost gum trees.
Bill, love the clouds in the second Utah image!
Thanks Sergei, Dick, Jack & Ed, more to come as I get to process them!
Ed, I LIKE your Ormiston Creek composition. Like a window to the other side.
Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.
Thanks Guy - and another tree!
Great photos Bill. Makes me want to visit.
Beautiful image Bill.
Thanks Joe, cs750!

cmb, I love that third one in particular - nice play of light and shadow. Enjoy your vacation!
Maybe "fun" is not exactly what this was as some of these structures remind us of some very dark days...

A panorama of Bluff in the south island of New Zealand, taken looking north west from the road up to the lookout on Bluff Hill. Bluff is a seaport and the southern-most town in New Zealand, and was one of the earliest areas of New Zealand where a European presence became established in 1823/24. It is the main gateway for NZ ships heading down to the Antarctic. The harbour is also home to the Foveaux Strait oyster fleet. Bluff oysters are renowned for their succulence and flavour, and are considered a delicacy nationwide, with Bluff holding an annual oyster festival.

Nice & moody, Odille!
ps and thanks for the geography lesson - I've been to the SI a few time but never made it to Bluff. Next time!
I just bought a ZD Back and here is my first 'real' photo after a couple of test shots. So far I like this back very much!
(thanks Mediumcool for the hint about ImageShack!)
