Manufacturers can only bet trusted so far.

    On the other hand, I think it's about the best idea in the world to tether a digital camera and shoot it to get a sense of the lighting itself, in terms of light placement and relative intensity. Its just plain cheaper to snap a digital image, look at it on a nice screen, then adjust your light placement accordingly. Modeling lights are pretty vague I've found.

    And yes, get a safe sync. Better to spend a few dollars there than a few thousand on a replacement camera. Oh the joys of electronics.
    was thinking of just hooking up a Pocket Wizard!

    Just asking: why TMAX100?

    With TMAX perhaps TMY-2 (ISO 400) would be more versatile and allow the option of some faster shutter speeds if needed.
