Testing the Jinbei HD-600 Monobloc

Testing the new Jinbei HD 600 cordless flash unit last night and Eli turned it on for me to see how well it could keep up with the Canon 5DmkIII motor drive.
This is an 11 shot sequence at full motordrive and it only missed one frame (frame 8 is a stop’ish over exposed) so I think that’s pretty damn good for a battery powered monobloc for well under $800.00!!
Thanks Tony PROtog QLD…
Other observations are it’s quite ‘cold’ so needs warming up to balance with other lights or I’ve been shooting on shade or cloudy WB setting to get in camera results I’m happy with.

First test image off the Canon 5D mkIII. Taken at the Wynnum water front on a very grey and miserable day in sunny QLD. This image is straight out of the camera with with just the inbuilt Landscape Profile in ACR applied.

The detail at the birds is great. I’ll post up a 100% crop when I get back into the studio later but I have to pop out for a few hours now.

Oh, and the high ISO is phenomenal. Shot one last night at 25600 ISO and at a first glance it would be a clearer shot than my old Fuji Press 800 neg film I used to shoot my basketball on.

Boys and their toys

Well even the most traditional of us all end up caving into technology… I’ll be on the go in the US for the next week or so and I figured keeping up to date with thing will be easier on an iPad than the laptop or phone each day.
If only the iPad could run photoshop I’d probably leave the laptop at home.
