i agree with using filters to protect your glass but i had a paid family shoot today inside a nice warm house i knew there was little chance of anything bad happening so i removed the filter for the best possible quality but outdoors keep it on is what i do

Yeah! New Lenses. Anybody else feeling like Canon hasn't been providing much to the consumer market lately? Competition is good.well in terms of lenses canon has the best range out there only a fool would disagree...
he said he uses the pelican for travel and events. i assume for travel he means by flying which totally makes sense to have a pelican and you pack a smaller bag for when you get there for your daily needs.and for event photography nothing wrong with a pelican there again makes total sense to me.I keep my lowepro bag when I need to carry a lot of gear and cant bring the pelican, but travel and any professional event, my pelican is my go-to case.
How does the Pelican 1510 do for backcountry hiking or walking through an urban setting?
Actually, I have a Peliacan-Storm im2500 (the Storm equivalent of the Pelican 1510, i.e. airline carry-on hard case). The problem I had with just a hard case for travel is what you do with the case when you get there, i.e. how do you walk around with your gear? A little inconvenient to drag the hard case around. My solution was to remove the padded divider system from the Storm case, put the gear in the Lowepro Flipside 400 AW, and put the Lowepro backpack inside the Storm case. Sturdy, lockable protection for travel (also handy if you're forced to check you bag for whatever reason), plus the convenience of a backpack when I get where I'm going...

I have said all along the 5d mk2 is what put canon on the map with film makers and for them to hold an event on the 3rd (3rd) and not to announce its sucessor the mk3 would be stupid they will talk about the 5dmk2 and announce the mk3 i put my life on it
