Not to make people feel old, but it was not that long ago when our home computers had only 40mb drives.
the easiest solution is to crop to the aspect of the size you want, if you want 16"x9", crop to 4:3. (16/9=4/3) In photoshop or lightroom you can just type in the size you want and then adjust the frame to fit the content you want.
If you are fortunate enough to be able to afford the best, and you want to use what will be widely regarded as the best MF lens on the market, then there will be plenty of people that will buy it. Some people will not see US$ 4,500 as a lot of money, others do. If you can afford it great, if you can't and want it then work towards getting it, if you don't want it then that's ok too. Everyone is happy.
No mistake is as timeless or universal as raising the camera to your eye, seeing nothing but black, then taking the lens cap off and trying again.
Ouch - thanks for letting me know. I'm more of a f/1.2-f/2 shooter, but sometimes use flash. The battery pack has worked well for me, but I don't go too crazy with the flash. I could see how easy it would be to overdo it, though.QuoteThere's a reason why pros use battery packs, which is something you might consider
Battery packs can actually contribute more to flashes overheating as they dont limit recycle rate as much as AAs. That's why I DONT use battery packs and instead use highly rated rechargeables. I had a quantum turbo SC completely fry two 580ex flashes before I made the switch. Haven't had a problem since.
ahsanford, since you'll be using lots of flash, scratch my advice on battery packs...
Instead, get a Blackrapid strap and connect that to the tripod foot. Better balance, load on shoulder, happy you.
If by "S" series, you mean similar to the S-100 or S-120, then I'd be interested in a large-sensor'ed version. I have the S-100 and it's a nice little pocket camera, though obviously, the small sensor has some limitations as far as latitude goes.
I feel stupid now for ordering the 70-200 f/2.8 IS II USM. It will be here Tuesday. I got the rebate and all, but the street price with the rebate is still $200 less than I paid. I bought it through B&H. Thought I was getting a really good deal.
Call them after their price drops, see what they say. Maybe you'll get a double dip?
I suppose it couldn't hurt to try.
