Lenses / Re: Lens selection for trip to Ireland
« on: August 15, 2013, 06:41:49 PM »


I just made a trip to Ireland this past winter.  I have to say, I made a post for some advice, and the people here on CR were quite kind with their advice for equipment and locations,..Thanks! I owe them some shots from my trip!
Anyway, I took a tripod with a 5D III, and 17-40L, 24-105L, and kept a 50mm 1.4 in my jacket for indoor/ pub/low light shots.  Seemed to work OK
I think I could have shot for days in Connemara! Beautiful!
hope my link works,...have fun!



I just took a trip to Ireland.  I carried on all my camera/lens gear, but also carried on my travel ball head (a RRS BH-30).  I then place my RRS CF tripod in my check through suitcase.  I wrapped the tripod with several layers of my clothes and place it in the center of the suitcase with the rest of my clothes around, beneath and on top of it.  I was a bit worried, but had no problems.  Just my recent travel experience….

This is a great thread!….I’m somewhat in the same boat.  I have a 24L,…purchased this for star and night work (on a FF body) but have not used it much.  I considered selling it to pick up the new 24-70II for more versatility and to maintain sharpness and good IQ.

Reviews / Re: Horrible experience with Adorama camera

I have used Adorama for 8-9 years,.....never had an issue,...never.  They have always been very good to me.

RRS stuff is simply awesome!

Hey cszy67,
I was in your same shoes as I did this a year ago.  And, I’m doing it again in a month.  In both of my situations, the couples are very much of the understanding that I am not a wedding photographer and simply are asking for a favor.  These are very small weddings/small gatherings, and simply do not have the funds for a wedding photographer.  If I’m not there, then nobody will be there type situation.  The next one I am doing will be shooting with a relative, and I think we will be just fine.  I think it is very important that the bride and groom understand your background/abilities upfront.  Many times, nice looking camera equipment is thought to equate to nice looking photos.  As we all know,..it does not,…it takes skill and experience.  I absolutely make sure they clearly understand that.  I would take home all the good advice on this forum,…..great stuff and advice.  More importantly though, have fun!

Software & Accessories / Re: Nik Software worth it?

I love Nik plug ins,...but I have to say that now that google has it, Nik support is terrible.  No updates, no customer log-in, I am now locked out of Sharpener this week and product codes do not work! Awful !

Jimmy!, I just went to FF after a couple nice crop bodies.  It was also a lot of funds for me...lost a bit of sleep and had some buyers remorse,...until I looked at some of its images.  There is just something about a FF image!  I have no regrets,..have fun!

Funny thread!,...I really like mine,..AE-Program! My first SLR! I was 13 years old. I still have it and it still works.
