For outdoors on bright sunny days

I have used it when shooting outdoors at a car show on a bright sunny day. ISO 50, set camera to Tv at 1/200 sec, installed a polarizer filter, dialed it all the way to full effect, put on the Canon 580EX flash for fill, and the lens hood on to minimize lens flare.

With this setting, I was at about f/4 most of the time. The sky came out nice and blue, and the fill lighting was perfect. I shoot with a Canon 5D so the DOF was really great. This also prevents me from having to use HSS on flash. This reduces the flash's range way too much.
