    Hows everyones week going?

    Oh, i have a question for you!

    I wanna start taking pictures with flash and i have a huge doubt on what to buy.
    My two options, based on my budget are: one Canon 430 Ex II OR Two Bower SFD35C.
    While the Canon has far more technology and options, having 2 Bower would give me more setup options, and more light.

    What would you guys suggest?

    Thanks! :-)

    Almost all my photos are geotagged !!!

    The shot

    Standard 3 exposures HDR [-2,0,+2EV] in RAW/ISO100 at f/3.5(WTF!) using Canon 18-55mm lens, handheld.


    Tonemapped using the detail enhancer.


    -Added one layer mask of "curves" to increase the contrast.

    -Added one layer mask of hue/saturation to increase the color saturation (overall)

    -Added another layer with a blue square on the top and blended it with the background layer to pimp the sky.

    -Some dodge/burning

    -Sharpened using unsharp mask.



    All comments, criticism and tips for improvements are ( as always ) welcome.

      O bower é mais barato (acho que bem mais) que flash canon. E você tem pelo o que vc paga, e já vi alguns relatos de problemas com ele e as Canon, como não funcionar no modo ETTL.
      No Clube FotoRio o Bazilio abriu um tópico sobre ele:

      Canon 430 Ex II é compatível com E-TTL II e alcance melhor. Eu escolheria ele se eu tivesse que ter confiabilidade, num casamento, por exemplo. Ou se estivesse no meio do mato e usando uma tele.

      Ao meu ver, se for pra experimentos, ficaria com os 2 Bowers. Mas algo me diz que perderia dinheiro rs
