That's a sweet shot with the Celestron. Very nice.

works well on my Win7 x64.
It's a bit sad that adobe only state that it corrects numerous "bugs introduced in earlier versions", but don't say which. Or do they in some place?
Well I hope Brian's knowledge of the camera is better than his knowledge of horses !
Thank you for all the info.
I have read Michael´s trip report hence my preoccupation with the 5D.
Yes, I thought you had but linked that report for others interested...I think that the grip had a major part on those camera´s failures and I will not take any grip to Antarctica. I don´t know if the 40D had any sealing, but if it has survived, the 6D might survive too.
A seal bag or dry pack is a great idea. It would protect my equipment and let me use my favorite backpack.
Your pictures are amazing. Congrats!Thank you!
Which cruise operator did you go with?That was a Quark Expeditions charter through The Luminous Landscape...I really wanted to make a trip this year with Cheesemans, but couldn't work out the timing
I will take 2 or 3 batteries for each camera. I have read several recommendations like yours about this.
Thank you for the location tips.
We call gumboots galochas in Brazil.
I was planning to minimize lens and cards changes in this trip. I am thinking about keeping the 70-200 f/2.8L IS II in the 7D II. I am thinking about using the 6D for the wide angle shots with the 17-40mm f/4L or the Sigma 12-24mm and even the 24-105mm f/4L IS or the 24-70mm f/2.8L.
The 50mm f/1.4 and the 28mm f/1.8 might be useful in low light. Although I think the 85mm f/1.8 is excellent, I tend to use it on very few occasions.
Selling the two 70-200mm lenses is not an option because my wife uses the f/4L while I use the f/2.8L IS II. But I could use the 2.8 with the 2x teleconverter on the 7D II (I might even buy the 2x teleconverter III if IQ is much better than the older version).
Your friend´s experiences will be very useful for my planning.
I keep a B+W filter on all my lenses for protection so the lenses that need a filter for water resistance are well prepared.
Used 1D series bodies are rare to find in Brazil and usually very expensive and/or beaten, so I would prefer a camera that I could buy new.
