    Another Gadget I'd Like Opinions on ...



    Hi Guys -

    I was going to order this last night but thought I'd wait and post here first to get opinions! This looks like a really handy gadget and all reviews I've read so far are really good but I haven't seen a whole heck of alot of photos taken using it yet ...only a few on flickr. It sort of looks flimsy and easily breakable but all comments say it's really well constructed.

    So what's your opinions on the Presslite Vertex? It's only $34.95 on Amazon so I thought it would be worth a shot ordering and if I don't like it, I can always send it back.

    Have a great day!!!

    Seems kinda gimmicky, I agree with Sean, Size matters with respect to your light source. If it were 10 dollars it could be more "bite-worthy" but 50 is a little steep for something like that.

    We're a Canon/Profoto family: five cameras, sixteen lenses, fifteen Profoto lights, too many modifiers.

    You know, lenses aren't everything...


    ...then again, I must admit, a Sigma 30mm f/1.4 did hit my doorstep this afternoon.

    How about this then, "Its $35.00 you won't get to spend on a second flash."





    This thing looks kind of cheap to me. I noticed as did others that there were no actual videos showing it in use, just illustrated graphics. It makes you wonder if it wouldn't demonstrate well enough to actualy show it work.
