comment Recommendations for Wireless Flash Triggers?
I owned a set of Cactus V2 and discarded them. At home they worked quite ok, but on several locations they tended to fire the flash without reason, probably due to electro signals of other electronic devices.

comment How many stops can a digital camera capture?
@aristos, I always wondered how the correct DR is defined or measured. And I'm not sure a DR for eyes could really be compared to a cam.

comment How many stops can a digital camera capture?
@jrista, sorry, english is not my first language, and sometimes it shows. I thought Highlight Tone Priority just underexposes the image if blown highlights are in the picture, and raises the dark parts - so it does not really extend DR, it just rescues a bit more of the RAW DR in jpegs.

Well, you can get them on ebay, but some retailers offer them, too. And there are a lot other triggers on ebay, too. I own two senders and five receivers and use them a lot, not only for firing my flashes but as remote trigger for my cam, too. For flash they work great, for remote triggering the cam they could be better. They tend to take two or three pictures with one press, since timing sensitivity is not that good.

comment Which tools are good for creating panoramas/stitching multiple photos?
Yeah, most of the time the free ICE works great - it just lacks control for the cases where you need fine-tuning.
