  • LOL, he will spend a lot more than those cards are worth to do that.
  • All manual. I guess if I was shooting birds and wildlife or sports or something I would probably use aperture priority or maybe shutter priority but landscapes give me time to make all of the ...
  • But the other side of that coin is if you have to lay it down on wet ground and then put it back on you won't have the wet side against your back.
  • I have the Flipside 500 AW. It's large and holds a lot of gear but at 76 I don't load everything I have in it when I go out, just what I think I will need. The straps and waist belt are ...
  • I don't know anything about Instagram but I have recently seen some YouTube vids by some pro photographers who had negative things to say about IG and it seems some of them are leaving. Wish I ...
  • I use Kase Wolverine Circular Magnetic Filter system. They are very nice and easy to use. I don't have any ND Grads but have thought about getting one only because living on the coast it's always ...
  • That question would be applicable just about anywhere on these forums but here is as good a place as any. As it has been talked about numerous times you can find plenty to keep you reading for a ...
  • Watch this YouTube vid and it will show you exactly what to do. It worked for me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rR2ljLNUWJ8
  • That is a great lens and I love mine. I don't do macro either but I love it for landscapes. Nice shots with it, never realized it was that good with close ups.
  • You might want to give B&W a try. Mid-day is perfect for certain types of black and white.
  • I like the tray idea. I have a row of led lights on one side but they don't provide much light at all. I may take a look at some trays so thanks for the pics and giving me something to think ...
  • Replied in Storing lenses
    Thanks alcelc. I'm just now realizing that two of you have cabinets with an analog hygrometer. I have the Ruggard 80L and it seems to work well but I want to make sure the readings are close to ...
  • Thanks Guy. As soon as I open my cabinet the reading jumps up to about 55% but goes back down quickly when I close it. That's normal I think but I just want to make sure I'm really keeping it ...
  • Replied in Storing lenses
    I like that analog hygrometer. Is that the one that comes with your cabinet or did you add that one? Mine only has digital but I'm thinking of getting a small analog, calibrating it and keeping it ...
  • Yes, I posted that it didn't have rollers in response to what amateurphotograher posted about his. I don't use rollers either.
  • Both. I used to think that too but after a lot of reading, watching some YouTube vids and experimenting I'm learning new ways of looking at things. The more I study this stuff the more I learn how ...
  • I use mine for landscapes. It's the old f4L (non IS) but is a great lens and usually on a tripod so the IS isn't missed.
  • I never hear of that but I live under a rock lol. I don't want to keep packing and unpacking my bag so I'll keep everything in it that I'm using but maybe I'll start leaving the bag open. It does ...
  • I'll second that on the Think Tank bags. I used to have a Streetwalker Pro and it was a great bag. They are pricey but worth the money. The Lowepro I have has been good, no problems at all but no ...
  • I have a Lowepro Flipside 500 AW that should work. It's pretty big. I don't use anything longer than a 70-200 but I have two bodies with two lenses attached and the 70-200 in another slot along ...
