    I've ended up using small hotshoe adaptors with PC fly leads to plug in to my radio triggers. Some on the market are too thick when using Chimera Softboxes.

    The voltage is fine. When I said < Some on the market are too thick when using Chimera Softboxes > I meant that they were too thick to use with the 550 EX's on the Chimera brackets. In other words the combination of these thicker hotshoe adaptors with PC flyleads meant they wouldn't fit in the aperture of the bracket and softbox ring. The thinner ones were no problem.

Merry Christmas Nigel and all,

Just make sure that the Trigger Voltage is under 7VDC on that adapter. Most likely it is because you're using a Canons.

If your are using them(580s) inside a those softboxes, you can use any flashes. They are lot cheaper than 550 or 580.

I do medical/photo equipment repairs & IR conversion, but I'm in the USA.
Over 20 years and Canon knew about that problem including many photographers. Most of Canon flashes can not do manual or aperture mode because they have to flash sensor.
Now they have it on the 580EXII. I guess Canon has no photographer working in the flash department.

Canon screwed photographers, buy a Metz, Vivitar, Sigma, Sunpak, or NIkon.

How to convert YouTube to iPad for Mac


I've got a bunch of YouTube videos and stored them on my Mac. Some of them are FLV formats, and some are MP4 formats with higher resolution. All of these YouTube videos couldn't be played back on my new iPad. Now I'm looking for a good <a href="http://www.videotoipadconverter.org/">ipad video converter</a> that converts YouTube to iPad supported video formats.<br /> Finally I picked a YouTube to iPad converter tool called iPad video converter software. This software is a free trial application that accomplishes this task quickly and easily. It just takes a few mouse clicks to convert YouTube to MP4 files using this YouTube to iPad Converter software.<br /> Here I'll show you how to <a href="http://www.ipad-converter-mac.net/guides/convert-youtube-to-ipad-for-mac.html">convert youtube to ipad for mac</a> supported H.264 videos for watching on the iPad step-by-step.<br /> Step 1: Download & install <a href="http://www.ipad-converter-mac.net/">ipad converter for mac</a>.<br /> We'll be using the very nice YouTube to iPad video converter software called iPad video converter for converting YouTube to iPad compatible video format. Next step is to install this YouTube to iPad Converter software.<br /> Step 2: Run iPad video converter and add YouTube videos<br /> Now run iPad video converter and click the big button "Add..." to add YouTube flv/mp4 videos from your hard disk, you may add as many YouTube videos as you want to convert to iPad H.264 videos for watching on iPad. Only the titles you checked will be converted.<br /> Step 3: Edit & merge YouTube videos: trim, crop, add effect, add watermark<br /> Wanna edit your YouTube videos to make it more personalized? You may add a watermark in iPad video converter. Just select the title you'd like to add watermark, then click the button 'Edit' to launch video editing window. If you want to crop video or add some special effects, click the first two tabs.<br /> Step 4: Change the output settings to convert YouTube to iPad<br /> You'll find a wide range of preset video setting options avaiable for Apple iPad. You may select "iPad MPEG-4 (640*480) Video(*.mp4)" for converting YouTube videos to iPad supported videos. Remember that the output file size and converting speed mostly depends on the Bitrate you set. Larger Bitrate, larger file size and longer convertion time.<br /> Step 5: Start converting YouTube to iPad video format<br /> Now you may click the big button "Start" to begin converting YouTube to iPad compatible video files. Once the convert is complete, iPad video converter will place on your Desktop a new iPad format version of your video that will play on the iPad. Double-click the new file and play it to make sure it looks as you expect.<br /> Step 6: Transfer/Sync video to the iPad<br /> To get the movie onto your iPad, launch iTunes. Drag your new converted movie file into your iTunes library in the folder or playlist of your choosing. Attach your iPad to your computer and sync the iPad with iTunes. Check the option "Automatically sync songs and videos to my iPad" so your music and video from the iTunes library will automatically snyc to your iPad. The sync may take a few minutes. When syncing is done, eject your iPad and take your movies with you.<br /> Related Topic: <a href="http://www.dvd-to-ipads.com/">dvd to iPad converter</a>.<br />

I have an lg ku990 and the disc that came with it is too small for my pc . how can i get the software to install my phone so that i can upload my photos? mrs andrews


Mrs Andrews,

Have you tried the support system at LG.com?
http://www.lg.com/uk/support/product/support-product.jsp

They claim that you can directly download the firmware from their site. However, you'll need to sign-up first.

Good Luck

Can not get my cx6400 to print from my mac


You need a MAC driver disk or download.

If you don't have a disk, you can download the driver from the Epson site. I've added the direct links to the relevant downloads below, providing your Mac is connected to the internet.

These drivers are only for the Epson CX6400 on Macintosh operating systems.

If you are using version Mac OS 7.6 to 9.2, here's a direct link to the driver download: http://esupport.epson-europe.com/ProductHome.aspx?lng=en-GB&data=SF8cgjsfr7Nsto14LFsNUjuRSXBZZOHy&tc=6

If you are using Mac OS X - Intel, here's the direct link: http://esupport.epson-europe.com/ProductHome.aspx?lng=en-GB&data=SF8cgjsfr7M6qoJ6uYEojoMzz9oApk7e5aobGaUtdawU003D&tc=6

If you are using Mac OS X - PowerPC, here's the direct link: http://esupport.epson-europe.com/ProductHome.aspx?lng=en-GB&data=SF8cgjsfr7Prg898nyvz3fMP+q1RgJB+&tc=6


Once you've downloaded the driver, it may be a ZIP file so unpack it where you can find it and double click the setup.exe file or program icon that unpacked.

This will install the drivers to your Mac computer.

You'll be asked to make sure the printer is plugged in and connected to the computer at some stage so that it can communicate with it and complete the installation.

Good luck

Nigel
