"What's up everybody? We are here in Sydney, Australia, and I'm really excited.

We just got off the plane and today is a dream day. 1, because we are in Sydney, Australia. 2, because when we landed, we got a chance to pick up the new IQ250 back from Phase One and the new Profoto B1 battery powered MonoLight kit.

We just have the afternoon here before we need to take off and head down south for a few days but I wanted to take a minute to show off my favorite feature of the Phase One system and that is the leaf shutter lenses and the ability to sync at 1/1600s. That is way faster than what you can do with any other system. As an action and sports photographer I'm always using off camera lighting as a way to really isolate my subject and bring the landscape to life.

Check out how easy this is going to be. There is no chords, no cables. Something that I didn't realize when I first started shooting with the Phase One cameras is that you can get the high speed flash sync one of two ways. You can either use an external grip like this. It has the channels right here. The other way that you can get the high speed flash sync with the Phase One is with this air remote. It just slides in the hotshoe on top of the camera and this is what I have been using lately. I really like it because I can control the flashes from my shooting position. I don't need to go to the flash to change the power.

A normal 35mm camera will let me sync at 1/200s, 1/250s which usually means when you are shooting in the middle of the day, you're shooting at f11 or f16 even so everything is in focus and you are not really overpowering the sun as much as you are competing with the sun and usually the sun is winning that battle. When you have a higher speed flash sync and you have a nice set of strobes, overpowering the sun is pretty easy to do. It has revolutionized how I think about photography, and it makes me able to things I could never do before.

The leaf shutter lenses from Phase One are reliable and consistent, so I'm getting 1/1600s sync all the time The whole system is really growing on me and I think it is going to become my workforce for the commercial jobs that I do."
