comment Is manual focusing a viable option with the Canon 6D, 100-400 IS L II, and 1.4 Extender?
Given the subjective nature of the question (how good is good enough?), I'd suggest renting a TC if you can and try it out for yourself. Having tried a 1.4 TC on the Mark 1 version of that lens, I was really unimpressed with its performance with moving subjects, and I've not yet found a great opportunity to try again with a static subject.

comment Are there cameras that autofocus during an exposure?
@PeterM - I think this is an "incremental improvement" sort of thing. I can regularly pan down to around 1/60 for cars moving straight across my FOV, but I can't get anywhere close to that for cars approaching on an angle, let's say. I'm not looking to pan for a couple seconds, but a little improvement would be welcome.

comment Are there cameras that autofocus during an exposure?
@PeterM - I was thinking that if implemented anything like Canon's AI focus, the rate of change would be close to constant -- not completely unlike star tracking (though obviously quicker). If you're tracking a subject moving at a known rate of speed, lens movement might start at the same speed right off the bat.

I'm looking for focus during an exposure, as in a panning shot where the subject's distance varies during the exposure.

comment Why is the bottom half my picture black when shooting with Cowboy Studio remote triggers?
Check the flash sync speed of your camera - it's likely 1/200 or 1/250. It's possible to go faster than that with a flash capable of High Speed Sync, but that won't be an option with a manual flash.

comment What's the generic term for portable flashes (Speedlites, Speedlights etc)?
Agreed. I think at this point, "hotshoe flash" is pretty much equivalent to "facial tissue" -- absolutely correct, and quite uncommon in normal speech.

Yup. You'd need one more 603 in that case.

comment Firing master flash with Yongnuo RF-603 II
I think in this case, we can think of "TTL" as "full camera communication". Since the 603 trigger doesn't "pass through" TTL signals to the 550EX, I suspect the flash doesn't think it's getting enough information from the camera to be a master. Why aren't you able to just use the 550 on the camera w/o a trigger at all? It would be happy being a master in that case, I believe.
