    Re: 24-105 on 1.6x crop

    I currently do not use my 24-105 on a 1.6x body, but I did for several years--first on a Rebel XT and then on a 40D. I initially had a 28-135 for my Rebel but found the quality lacking (especially...
  2. Re: If you were me, which lens would you buy? (24-105 vs. 70-200 f/4 IS)

    For me, this is an easy one, given your question: "Let's say you were traveling to a new country and wanted to be ready to
    capture all the sights, which lens would you rather add to my existing ...

    Re: 580 EX II PC terminal

    I've had no problems using my 580EX II through a PC sync cord with my 5DII in manual mode. Seems to work fine for me. I haven't tried using it as a master flash with that connection, though...

    Re: What camera bag do you have and/or recommend?

    Much like Ed, above, I tend toward a smaller bag for most outings. I have a LowePro Nature Trekker when I need everything, including my f/4 IS Kitchen Sink. But, for the most part, I use my Crumpler...
  5. Re: Assignment 7: Slow it Down

    Thanks very much! I'm still trying to get my brain to rationalize your lovely T/S street shot above, by the way. Such a great look...
  6. Re: There's no better way to start your morning...

    Wow, does Canon not realize how much money they could get from goofballs like me with this stuff?? Pull some strings for us, Bryan! ;)


    I think the Nifty Fifty Espresso Cup must be next, right?

    Awesome idea for an assignment--too much fun! Here's one of my favorites:

  8. Re: There's no better way to start your morning...

    Sign me up, too! (Seriously, if somebody can snag a few, I'll gladly pay for one.) I saw these on the web a few days ago. Sweeeet. Also, if you're willing to pony up $200+, you can get one from...

    Re: C & C Frost

    Wow, that's very cool! For whatever reason, this has the look of some sort of deep-sea plant, to me, which makes the frost look all the more other-wordly. Either that, or it's because I'm in Phoenix,...
  10. Re: Really Right Stuff or Kirk Enterprises L-plate for 40D and 50D without grips?

    For what it's worth (more future reference than your current situation, I suppose), if you're ever looking for a universal plate, the Wimberly P-5 does a pretty nice job. I needed a plate for my 5DII...
  11. Re: Really Right Stuff or Kirk Enterprises L-plate for 40D and 50D without grips?

    I've used RRS grip-less L-plates on three bodies, now (Rebel XT, 40D, and 5DII), and I've loved having them on my cameras. I actually like the adjustability for the remote release. It's pretty easy...

    Re: use it or loose it

    As a slightly more general aside, for those who think that their DSLR is 'crappy,' I would suggest taking a look at Flickr's Camera Finder. When I feel like it's my equipment that is lacking, I head...

    Re: use it or loose it

    In general, I like the OP's first paragraph, but the second paragraph is off in the weeds. Yes, our gear (especially depending on our income level & the cost of gear) should be taken care of, but not...

    Re: Any camera strap reco's

    A bit late to the party on this one, but I've been using this Tamrac N-45 for several years on all of my cameras, and I like it quite a lot. I rarely carry my camera around my neck, though--usually...

    Re: Lens rental, good or bad idea?

    I second the 100-400 + 10-22 recommendations. I've rented a 100-400, myself, locally, and it was fantastic (on the wish list...). The push/pull design took a bit of getting used to, and it was...

  19. Re: Assignment 4: Break a Rule!

    There are many things 'wrong' with this image. It's a bit blurry, there are raindrops all over the car window through which it was shot, it's a bit crooked (I should actually fix that...), ..., but...

    Re: Tripod/Ballhead clamp choice

    I went with the lever-style ballhead (a RRS BH-55 LR, to be precise). Part of my decision was motivated by the type of plate I wanted to attach to the camera and the type of shooting I tend to...

    Re: Recommendations for a good "city" bag.
