I was faced with the same situation last year - I am another one that made the transition from PC to Mac. I also installed Windows 7 via bootcamp on my Macbook Pro for the first little while and have now fully switched over to OS X. It was a pretty painless move and overall I am very happy to have made the switch. Too many headaches with Windows, the updates, viruses etc etc. I have always kept my files on external drives so my 512mb SSD has not been an issue for me.

Id recommend the switch.

Learning OS X was quite simple

OOPS - thanks for the reminder :)

I had not heard of smokingstrobes before.

It should be pointed out that is NSFW.

About 15 min to install Windows 7 - then about 1.5 hours and several reboots to finish downloading and installing all of the Windows Updates. :(

If you can - try to create media and slip stream SP1 into the install disc before the build, or download a network install versions of SP1 and install it before all of the updates.

Does anyone know if they will ship to a hotel while I am travelling to the US?

Ive never bought through them before, I am also curious if there will be issues with using a Canadian CC# with an american address.

Thanks in advance.

Wow - I have never even thought about that. I travel with 3-4 PW in my carry on all of the time.i have been asked what they were but never hassled. I was also unaware of not keeping batteries in your checked bags.

What about creating 2 different grips for the 7D Mii, one with the GPS and WiFi and one without?

Never thought to take a sync cable, again I was mainly going for the game and not planning on shooting a ton anyways.

Im in no rush to do it again, I also didnt list the event venue so not to advertise and open the doors to potential problems with others.

There was never any thought of abuse on the lighting setup, more so I wanted to find out if they were using any type of secured channel was the reason that I originally brought the PW. I did end up firing off about 10-15 shots during the evening. That being said, I was there as a sports fan and not a photographer.

One guy a few seats away from me must have known that I had the ability to fire the strobes as with the PW attached it looked a little out of the norm.

About a year ago I was at a professional sporting event and noticed that the Pro shooters were using PWII to fire the stadium strobes. Having a chance to revisit the stadium this weekend I thought that I would throw a PWII into my pocket to see if I could find the channel the Pros were using and fire the strobes from my camera roughly 15 rows up. Low and behold they were using a default channel and while being considerate I did fire off a few shots. From scanning around the stadium I could only find two shooters with PWII - all others were shooting flash free.

So my question is - legally could you get into trouble triggering these units? I know that ethicly no one should be using them with out permission.

Anyone here a stadium pro and have any experience with unauthorized use of strobes?
