So sad, it brings everything back into perspective.

The next 7D with an aps-h sensor like the 1dm4 would kill! I'd buy it. Sensor size has always been one of the largest points of any camera. Bigger sensored cameras have more photo-site space and with gapless lens technology on the 1DX and 5DM3 its a big win over the Nikons non-D series sports cameras. Its also a win over Sony and others that are 1.5 or 1.6 crop. This would separate the 7d from the two digit series cameras like the 60d. It would kind of take the old helm of the sports camera but in the middle spot the 1dm2/3/4 held.
I wonder what they'll call it.
A single-digit name is dictated by the build, not the sensor size, in which case this body would break with tradition if it were called, say, a 6D. But if not a single-digit name, then what could it be called?
Does it hit the WB everytime? My Novatron is 10 years old and still kicken. If you're interested, I found a guy in TX that will repair any Novatron equipment, he was actually an engineer for them and knows what to do. He'll actually replace your flash heads for a decent price. The only issue I ran across is the power pack I have is a 5 prong plug and the new lights reuire a 6 prong plug. I found an adapter to go from 5 pin to 6.
Use the Flash WB preset. I still use some novatron flashes from 2003 and they've been quite reliable.
I'm hoping someone can give me some direction on what mode to set the white balance to when shooting with a 3 light strobe set-up? I typically leave it on auto WB and tweak it in post production; however, this time I'll have the editor, stylist, and publisher of the magazine at the shoot wanting to see every image sent to my iPad for review. I would like to hit the WB on the spot and not have to explain that we can fix in post..
I’m using a 5D MK2, 90mm TS lens, 50mm f1.4, and 24-70 f2.8. Firing with PW to a 3 light strobe set-up by Novatron with 1 large softbox and 2 umbrellas.
i have 175$ credit at crutch field burning a hole in my pocket. figured why not get a flash? would the 430ex ii be a suitable flash for a somewhat beginner photographer in the flash game? I will be using it basically for recreational purposes. all around photo stuff. also can the flash stay lit up as an external light for video? is this recommended?
Not everybody wants a smaller body, many are using battery grips with their Rebels, 60Ds/7Ds/5Ds and they like the size of it.
I cannot work with the small bodies - 1 series is ideal for me
Likewise I dont like the 5Dx size without grips as I shoot a lot in portrait mode which is a killer for the hands
Mirrorless = Compact with good IQ and a basic lens selection.
That might be how it starts ....
Not sure how good IQ and basic lens selection works unless you mean a limited range?
If you are shooting mostly outdoors with the telephoto, you can save about half the cost with the f4 L instead of the f 2.8.
Although the 15-85mm is somewhat slow, I prefer its range to that of the 17-55 2.8. It just depends on which is more important: speed or range. I find the extra 2mm at the wide end very important (essentially the difference between a 24mm and a 28mm wide angle).
I have no opinion on the 50mm, but my gut tells me that it is a lot of money for not a big advantage on your budget.
