I don't think that I have missed the info, I think that SONY missed the info. Attached is the text taken from their operational manual.

Thanks though for providing all the measurements. I am not really happy with the Sony light but I want to be sure when I purchase a new one that I won't be disappointment, especially if I have to pay much more than the Sony one.

That's why I'm posting all this stuff. Since I have all 3 lights I'm trying to give you all the info so you can make the best decision for your needs. It does get costly to keep up with all the new gadgets.

You can say that again Rob. The minister of Finance (my wife) keeps telling me that we are in recession now...

Stelios, FYI: I'm not getting the comer at this time, so I won't be able to tell you about it.

I placed the order for the Comer with Taky, then promptly spent all of my PayPal money on still photo gear.

Taky wrote me saying he had not recieved my payment two days later, and we both checked with PayPal and there had bee a computer error. Very unusual. I had actually gotten a PayPal receipt. Taky noticed it has a date of December 1969, which was even stranger.

So the short version of this story is I now don't have the money for it, the order didn't go through, so I'll have to wait.

The good news is I now have some amazing camera lenses I'm using Sunday which I wouldn't have had the money for if the light order went through, so it all worked out, but much differently than if the light purchase had gone through.

Jeff, I beg you read my post again. I didn't accuse you of scamming me. It was what Paypal said. I think and I know they are wrong. That's why I said Paypal has some serious issue. I appreicate your prompt return of my wrong shipment too.

Seriously, I didn't say you scam me. I'm sorry if it comes out that way. For that, I apologised.

Jeff, you are right. I shouldn't have post that message publicly. Although I didn't say you scam me, other might perceive it that way. I'm sorry again and I will remove that message.

I have to say it again, how stupid would someone have to be to to do such a thing?
Jeff - as an independent observer I don't really think Taky was "calling you out" publicly - from what I read in his post it sounded like he didn't believe what Paypal had told him and used the corroberating evidence of the wierd date of the transaction and transaction ID 0 - he then goes on to say that Paypal has some serious issue (probably a computer snafu as noted). Paypal was actually accusing you of a potential scam all becuase they had made the error in the first place - Taky was just repeating that and saying that he doubted it and it was most likely Paypal's error.

I have purchased two lights from Taky and he has been very upfront in our dealings.

Jeff - calm down - I don't really think there is a disagreement here - Paypal was the culprit and you both pointed that out. I have seen instances in other forums where Paypal has messed up the payments but it has always been resolved.

Taky is just in the process of expanding his internet business and he seems to be very sensitive and accomodating to his customer's needs and will bend over backwards to not have any bad publicity.

Peace!!

Taky, I do accept your apology. Please leave it up so that people who read it earlier will understand there was a mistake.

I literally became sick over it and have been awake for hours waiting for PayPal offices to open.

The post was up for hours, however and I cannot imagine what people thought.

Lets move on.

Thank you for clearing it up.

To be clear, in my dealings with Taky he has been upfront and honest and I recommend him highly as a vendor. There was a miscommunication earlier but apparently I misunderstood. It seemed clear to me, but since at least one other person (Barry) has pointed out that I misunderstood than I will accept that and in return I will apologize to Taky as well.

My apologies Taky for misunderstanding your post.

I'm so glad that is over, I was so upset!
