+1 for the Joby GorillaPods.  They have a big line of them that can fit any need or budget.

Beautiful capture!  Did they modify your photo to come up with the final version?  Looks like some PP work was done between the two.


Like the first better, but get the vision you had with the original.


Congrats on the exposure (pun already disclaimed in earlier post).

Cloudy over Philadeplhia area, so I am out of luck tonight.


Recommend longest lens you have and at least f16.  Experiment from there with exposure length.  Use remote trigger and solid tripod setup.  Live view will allow you to frame shot better.


Good luck!

Rent them both for your trip and make the decision afterwards, based on results.


I love my 50/1.4 for portrait shots, but everyone's tastes are different.  Renting is great option to eliminate buyers remorse, especially if you are looking at the 50L.

IMO, 100 or longer is tight for indoor.

Good luck.

Lenses / Re: Recommendations for a 180mm macro?
« on: April 30, 2013, 05:08:36 PM »
I have not used the Sigma, but did own the Canon 180L.  It is a tremendous lens with great IQ, but heavy to handhold for an extended period of time.  Ideal for tripod/studio work, but without IS/OS, it has its limitations in the wild.
 
I sold it and purchased the 100L, primarilly due to teh HIS feature.  Sure I need to get a bit closer to the subject, but overall, I am happy with the change.
 
I would push you toward the Canon because the L glass keeps great resell value.

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D III or 1D IV for sports!

1D4 is a monstrous upgrade from the 7D.  There is a large quantity of them available in the used market, just be cautious of the shutter count.  Many are high usage from pros and serious amatuers that have move to the 1DX.


IMO, if a low mile body (<100k shutter) could be found in the $3k ~ $3.5k range, then well worth the money.

Lenses / Re: 300 f2.8 Ser 1 vs. Ser 2?

+1 on Neuro's comment/warning...price is way too good to be true (even for a 2.8 non-IS model)...

Software & Accessories / Re: Black Rapid and dropped camera?
« on: January 06, 2013, 04:11:05 PM »
I have used the RS-7 for a couple of years and followed the sage advice from Neuro about using a 1" Kirk clamp with some LocTite blue on the fastener.


Never have had an issue or concern carrying any body/lens combo.


Stuff happens all the time, but the BR strap and Kirk clamp are great combo.
