UPS brought me a Better Beamer this week with a Wimberley F9 bracket to mount the whole set-up for use with my 500. Generally, if I am using a flash I am shooting people in manual mode using a light meter, etc... which isn't going to be the case now.
Anyone have experience with the Better Beamer? I read everything I can find on the net. I am shooting coastal birds this weekend. I guess I will start in TV mode @ 1/200th of a second and use the Better Beamer strictly for fill. I never use ETTL flash mode normally so I hope the camera knows what I want!! I may also use 1/500th of a second and just try to crop the black bars out in post.
I will post a pics of the whole camera rig and whatever pics I manage to get.
