I had pretty much the same set up, and found the fastpack to be a tight squeeze.

I went with the mountainsmith parallax

I always use a hood, keeps my greasy fingers away from the font element. And I don’t use filters so it helps if I accidently drop it or something.

You can get knock off filters hoods on eBay for dirt cheap with free shipping. Some of the ones I have ordered are of surprisingly good quality for what I paid for them.

Update, I meant cheap hoods, not filters. I know better then that.....

Lighting / Light Meters?

How many of you use a light meter? If so, what are you usually shooting with them? I was looking into them on the interwebs the other day, I’m really surprised how expensive they are. Even used older ones on ebay still command a hefty sum.

I’m guessing the majority of people who use them are doing studio/portrait work. Do you still find yourself using one as much as you used to, as in camera metering has improved over the last several years?

Damn, I was going to post the 5200mm.

+1 for Magic Lantern. I have had time to fully explore what you can do with it, but I just like the fact that I can now record video on a 50D.

Quite surprised how many are shooting MF. I just bought myself a Mamiya 645 pro off ebay this morning to join in the fun.

Someone mentioned full frame earlier, if you ever wanted to get the same feeling as using a crop sensor on film, there is always the EOS IX

Just joking around with that. Anyway, where are most people getting their film developed? Pro lab? Or just Target/Walmart, etc etc ....

I've recently taken to collecting older range finders, so I shoot a few rolls now and then to try them out. I Recently discovered Illford Pan 50, this stuff is amazing! Either that or Tri-X 400, since it's easy to find. I also just bought a entire dark room set up (a color one too) from some guy on craigslist for 50 bucks. Just have to find some room in the basement for it, and see if I can't remember how to develop film/prints.

GigaPan is half way there. Quite suprised they don't make one with this option.

They look like black clipping was not done or done poorly, but then again I'm not familiar with how astronomy photographs are supposed to look... Might just be the nebulas, but to me it looks hazy.
Dude they're taking pictures of objects so far away it's hard to even comprehend the distance, I'd say they're pretty damn good for a $1400 camera.  But then again I'd like to know what kind of telescope they were shooting through...

5200mm f/14

I honestly have no idea, but I wonder what you could do with that lense.

All depends on what your using it for. If I was shooting something artsy I'd be fine with manual focus, if I'm shooting my 2 year old son running around the back yard, I want auto focus.

Didn't have time to read it right now, but I like the pictures. I'll have to read it later this evening. 

I had a Fastpack 350, outgrew it and I am now using a Mountainsmith Paralax, so far so good. It's a little on the big side for some people probably. It's only 130 on Amazon.

I don't know if it is, but it would be nice. I think it's just a option they have to turn on on the forum.
