« on: November 15, 2014, 03:36:50 PM »
The clock is ticking down....2hrs away. I'm excited and nervous at the same time, since this is my 1st time shooting a wedding.

I have been asked by a co-worker to photograph his wedding. I'll be the primary photographer and more likely the only one there.

Gear I packed:
1. 5D III + 1DX + dual BR strap
2. 16-35 f4 IS, 24-70 f2.8 II, 85L II, and of course 70-200 f2.8 IS II
3. 600EX-RT(x3) + ST-E3-RT, 20plus spare AA batteries
4. Umbrella + stand

 Wish me luck guys

Lenses / Questions: Canon 200mm f2 IS
« on: September 13, 2014, 12:45:59 PM »
Hi guys,
Quick questions for those owning 85L II, 135L and 70-200 f2.8 IS II.

1. Is there room for 200mm f2 IS II to blend in?

2. In what situation do you pull out the 200mm f2 IS II?

3. Did you sell any lenses after 200mm f2 IS purchase? Why?

Thanks in advance
Dylan

Keep in mind, I DO NOT get pay for what I'm about to say. Just want to share some thoughts on the camera product that might help other photographers.

Few weeks ago, my 1dx screen got bumped into Canon 400mm f2.8 IS II lens collar foot. The impact was strong. The screen protector from Expert Shield did a GREAT job protecting my 1dx screen.

See photos: http://dylannguyen.smugmug.com/Expert-Shield-Screen-Protector/

I would highly recommend Expert Shield screen protector to everyone. GREAT JOB Expert Shield.

Software & Accessories / Apply Loctite to RRS foot replacement?
« on: July 20, 2014, 04:30:26 PM »
Hi guys,
I recently picked up RRS foot replacement for my 400mm. RRS recommends Loctite 242 to secure it. Do you use any Loctite on your foot replacement?

« on: June 29, 2014, 02:04:38 AM »
Most of my photos are indoor & low light. I'm thinking about DxO Optics Pro 9, Elite Edition as PP software(never use DxO before). I'm a LR user.

For those using DXO, can you guys share your thoughts on this Vs LR5?

Thanks in advance,
Dylan

I'm looking for 1DX screen protector. Thin and high quality will be great. Have any good suggestion guys?

Hi guys,
Would this be enough power to drive two Canon 600EX-RT?

FAST recycle time really got my attention, plus compact, Up to 1400 Full-Power Flashes(I'm good with 1000ish if recycle time still within 1sec at lower power level)

What do you think?

Thanks
