    Recently purchased a 5d MKIII after shooting Nikon for 5 years, and I
    continue finding very irritating gems about Canon. First off, their lenses
    are overrated! The EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Lens so far has been the
    only lens worth my purchase, a beautiful lens but of course can’t be used
    for everything, and I’ve yet to find other lenses worthy of filling the
    other ranges. Then there’s the whole second curtain sync issue (which
    brought me to this video hoping to find a resolve) and only having the
    option available with Canon speedlights!! WTF?! Was the company SO
    desperate to sell their product they were forced to pull such a move?! Love
    the Canon quality, but these foolish feature quirks and poor lens
    selection, make me wish I’d stayed with Nikon.

  • AGolstonT says:

    It seems like 2nd/rear curtain sync is the best way to shoot every time.
    Are there any benefits to shooting flash photography without rear curtain
    sync? When is it a good time to not use it?

  • Alejandro Cerdena says:

    Is there a way I can do rear or second curtain sync with strobes?

  • Sandy Joy says:

    Mark can you tell me what camera settings you would use on a Canon for rear
    curtain sync? Is this good to use for low lighting indoors for a party?

  • neocon70 says:

    I wonder if any of the drivers thought they were caught on a speed camera
    when they seen a flash in the corner of their eye as they pasted mark and
    his camera flash.
