    The Better Beamer is a flash extender, which is similar to a fresnel lens (in a Lighthouse) which magnifies and projects light farther distances. It focuses and concentrates the output of the flash into a narrow beam via the fresnel panel that is positioned in front of the flash.

    I hope that helps,

    Rich, I stand corrected. For some reason I was mixing up the rogue flash bender with the better Beamer. Thanks for correcting.

    Is that one considered as a bird

    After all, it flights, doesn't it?



    7D, 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS II @ 200mm, 1/500, f/4, ISO 100. Barely cropped to get rid of a high-voltage cable in the bottom left corner. Taken at the Geneva airport.

    Cheers,
    S.

    From Busch Gardens, Williamsburg, VA. The story is they took him in 6 weeks ago. A hunter in South Carolina was bragging that he'd shot it -- took most of his right wing. He was arrested and they found the bird, 5 years for shooting it (10 years had he killed it). The irony being, if the hunter hadn't bragged, the eagle would died and the hunter would never had been caught.

    Beautiful bird, sad story, what an idiot for doing such a thing to begin with let alone telling on himself. He deserves what he got and more, hopefully he will also be banned from hunting for life. It's fools like this that can give all ethical hunters a bad rep.

    Sounds like the words that came out of this idiot's mouth is probably the smartest words he ever said! So glad he was caught!!

    I haven't posted in here in quite awhile since it's just been way to hot to enjoy the outdoors!! Expecting temps of 113 degrees tomorrow!
