Hopefully, I won't be stoned or worse for this update. Some newer photographers definitely seem like zealots when it comes to their Speedlites, Speedlights, small flash instruments, whatever you want to call them. I mean, the small flash religion even has its own apostles, you know, like Saint Joe and Saint David. Those two have hopped on a tour bus and are out there, traveling the highways and byways of America, like revival tent preachers all the while spreading the good word of small flash photography to the masses. Betcha they're even healing some old school shooters who have resisted the small flash gospels of Canon, Nikon, Vivitar, Metz, and more. READ MORE?

I'm not an art critic but I think I know a good picture when I see one.

I have to day that I agree with you. I have never been a fan of this "strobist" movement even though I think they are several larger groups out there that spread the religon of strobism.

Like you, I do believe in the right tool for the job and I am all in favor of using an on-camera flash off camera with a cord when necessary but for serious, heavy duty use these shoe flashes just don't have what it takes to produce consistent, studio results. Would you trust your reputation and a $10,000 shoot to something that runs on AA batteries? For me I certainly would not.
