Not only does this configuration save you from the tangle of wires, but the flash units and camera also communicate during the exposure, so you get perfectly exposed shots without having to calculate guide numbers and f-stops.
Такая конфигурация не только спасет вас от путаницы проводов, но и обеспечивает взаимосвязь камеры и вспышки во время экспозиции, позволяя получить идеально экспонированные снимки без необходимости перебирать режимы и ширину диафрагмы.

Moreover, Russia is too big a tangle for us to unravel alone without the Germans, and without hard work.
К тому же Россия есть слишком великое недоразумение, чтобы нам одним его разрешить, без немцев и без труда.

A whirl of the most fantastic notions took possession of his brain immediately after he had parted with Alyosha two days before, and threw his thoughts into a tangle of confusion.
Самый фантастический вихрь поднялся в голове его сейчас после того, как он третьего дня расстался с Алешей, и спутал все его мысли.

Sparks flew, tiny wisps of steam trailed off, vapors rose amid a writhing tangle of mad mechanical appendages.
Летели искры, вверх струились тоненькие струйки дыма, туман и пар поднимались от извивающегося клубка механических рук.

No matter what she did with her hair it took about three minutes for it to tangle itself up again, like a garden hosepipe left in a shed.
Все равно, что бы она ни делала с волосами, буквально через три минуты они спутывались, как оставленный в сарае поливочный шланг.

She was only dimly aware as she and Sunset plowed into the tangle of the large tree, and she felt no real pain as she and the horse crashed in headlong, tumbling and twisting in a bone-crunching descent through the branches and to the ground.
Инновиндиль с трудом поняла, что пегас упал на огромную крону, но даже не ощутила боли, когда они оба рухнули вниз, ударяясь о ветви, ломая кости и переворачиваясь.

The streets leading out the south end of the second market were a confusing tangle, and Tobas found himself doubling back and going in directions he did not care to go before he finally emerged onto a broad avenue running due south.
Достаточно поплутав в лабиринте улиц, Тобас вышел на широкий проспект, идущий строго на юг.

Keeping himself free from the tangle of the hedge he strolled across a triangle of obscure kitchen garden, and approached a dismal shed or lodge a yard or two beyond it.
Выпутавшись из переплетения ветвей, он побежал по темному треугольнику огорода к какому-то легкому строению.

At these moments he would become conscious that his ideas were sometimes in a tangle and that he was very weak; for two days he had scarcely tasted food.
В эту же минуту он и сам сознавал, что мысли его порою мешаются и что он очень слаб: второй день как уж он почти совсем ничего не ел.

I hadn't made my bed before I left, so I just dropped myself into the tangle of sheets and covers and closed my eyes.
Постель я так и не застелила, поэтому сейчас просто повалилась на кучу из подушек и одеяла и закрыла глаза.

The restriction is different for each view. Making a separate interface for each restricted view would lead to a bewildering tangle of interfaces that would be unusable in practice.
Эти ограничения отличаются для разных представлений, поэтому создание отдельного интерфейса для каждого ограниченного представления привело бы к появлению огромного количества запутанных интерфейсов, непригодных для практического использования.
