    Article with Sony reviewed for weddings

    Jeeze, I forgot that some of you wanted me to post a link to an article I was asked to write for the Photo.net Wedding Forum.

    Of interest here perhaps because I tout the Sony for serious event work ... on a very well visited site. Maybe if we can get more sales going Sony's way they will get it in gear and bring us some more new Zeiss lenses ... and that Big Boy camera

    (Sorry for the length, they wanted a lot of stuff, including some history that lead to my opinions ... but I tried to make it a decent read).

    Marc, I have just thoroughly enjoyed reading your article. I am not a wedding photographer but many of your observations and advice are applicable to other types of shooting, so well done and thank you for posting the link.
    Cheers, Dave

    Enjoyed the article. Thanks.

    Regarding the use of Sony flashes with Pocket Wizards, you can use Flashzebra's cables:

    I am using a three 58s + PWs and they work just fine.

    The link doesn't go anywhere. "Not Found" ?

    Sounds promising. How do they hook up?

    Ordered three.

    Now I can sell my Nikon flashes and get another 58.

    Re: Article with Sony reviewed for weddings

    Thanks Quino, they do some really nice hook-ups for Sony (and other brands).

    However I noted that the A900 wasn't mentioned per se, but the A700 was. The flash set up for A700 and A900 is the same I think, is that correct?

    You are welcome.

    Dave, I know nothing about the a700, but I use the Following setup on my a900 without any problem:

    1 Sony FA-HS1AM adapter + 1 PW II tranceiver on camera. Three Sony 58s, each one hooked to a PW II by the Flashzebra cable linked above

    Re: Article with Sony reviewed for weddings

    just received a few tidbits from Flash zebra. great service...to be recommended.

    I got kits to add mini-sockets to my three 580EX flashes! also a few tiny cords to hook pocket wizards directly to the 580.. previously was using a flash-shoe with dangling pc cord doo-dad and a pc to mini adapter. new bits work great.

    also a cable/adapter to use the sony 58 off-camera (sony camera)
