    Blank DVD-Rs - Any ones you don't trust?

    Any recommendations? The only problem with online backups is that home upload speeds usually suck :(

    Any more DX lenses?

    Hahaha. Have you seen the size of the 200 f/2.8? Imagine adding 182 more mm of zoom to that and keeping the aperture constant.. I think you'd need a truck if you want your mounting base to be mobile :p

    Pocket Wizard vs. SU-800

    Can't the SB-800 be used to wirelessly trigger the 900/800/600?

    Rumor has it...

    The choke is at the source, the oil production fields, not at the refineries. Not really. The companies might have to start sacrificing profit to keep petroleum product prices reasonable, what with the crazy prices they have to purchase oil for. Might be a good time to purchase shares in...

    Canon airs deceptive commercial for new camera body

    It IS possible with an XSI. What exactly looks so tricky about the environmental conditions in the pictures?

    Q about paypal fees

    Simple answer is yes, it's against the UA. Pretty much no one cares though because while it's irritating from the POV of a buyer, he knows that when he wants to sell something online he too will want the option of charging more if the buyer chooses the otherwise more expensive (for him) option...

    talk about a paper airplane

    Low heat reentry is already being tested, with aircraft such as Spaceship One. But Spaceship One wasn't designed to operate as deep into space as current space shuttles are. Reentry into atmosphere from current space shuttle altitudes required a steep angle and high velocities or the vehicle...

    This is Just Crazy!

    Why, because he seemed rather jovial about it? The biggest killer in combat is fear, because while fear obviously helps make you want to preserve your own life, it also keeps you from doing your job effectively. So you hide fear by brushing situations like that off, and maybe you'll start to...

    Nikon COOLPIX S550... Anyone have one? or anyone have any useful info?

    Photo Portfolio Options...

    If you're going to use a traditional album where you place pictures on each page, then don't do 6x4. Get a plain one and blow up each picture so it's one picture per page, looks more professional and more 'arty' that way. If you're going to do 6x4 size, then a better way to do it might be to...

    I dropped my lens

    From my experience most people do that mate. And no, I do not hang out with a bunch of ruffians who beat little old ladies for no reason. I mean the average Joe, he probably does that. And unless the only people you hang out with are the angels Gabriel and Michael, you probably know this.

    Gone too Far?

    Hmm.. netizens seem to have an inability to look at the bigger picture.. Laws exist to protect brand image, trademarks and copyrights for a reason you know. In relationship to cafepress, picture this scenario. Someone sees a person on the street wearing a tee shirt with the Ford brand name on...

    Frozen D200

    On/off circuit might have shorted out, since it still displays remaining shots and stuff. But it is odd, seeing as someone on FM mentioned he held a D200 under the tap once to clean it. Lol.

    Pringles lid

    Well that was harsh. Lets get real, many of these professional tools marketed at stupidly high prices can be replicated at a fraction of the cost with a little ingenuity. Whibal, Omnibounce, Expodisc..

    Review of Joe McNally book

    Any recommendations for more book like that? I understand almost all the technicalities (save guide numbers and hyperfocal length) so those kinds of books bore me. I'm more interested in the situations these pros work in.. Will be ordering this book tomorrow anyway :)

    External Hardrive... What do you recommend?

    Ironic :p I got a My Book over the Seagate Ovation and LaCie many months ago. After transferring 200 gigs of data in and leaving it for a few hours as the data transferred, I came home to find the thing wouldn't sustain transfer or use for more than 30 minutes before giving a 'delayed write...

    Ebay shops from Hong Kong

    I haven't worked up the courage to buy from a HK dealer, but now that you've mentioned it I can't recall a single instance of a buyer getting ripped off by a HK seller.. I know Strobist members regularly get their triggers from HK eBay stores

    Travelling to and within Africa

    What I'm looking for is instability unfortunately :tongue: I don't expect to jump into the thick of the action of course, a few weeks in South Africa to familiarise myself with the region first is what I'm thinking.. What's there? o.O I have been to many other parts of the world...

    Travelling to and within Africa

    Hello guys, for awhile now I've been dreaming about travelling in Africa solo or with a partner. Partly it's due to a need for adventure, partly the want to capture that life in text and photos, and partly out of a need to experience life in that region. I suppose I've been watching too many...

    Will the plane take off?

    And that is the reason why while pilots may fly the planes, engineers are the ones who design and build them :) To all the nay sayers in the thread.. I told you so!

    Lens options...If you had $2000 to spend...

    If I had 2k I'd get a 70-200 + 1.4 or 1.7 TC, simply because I don't do nature photography..

    On a serious note...State of the Union Address

    He said 70-210 2.8 (seventy to two ten, two eight), but the transcript says he said 70-200 2.8, eh? EDIT: And no rear caps on the lenses at all?!

    Upgrade d50 - Whether and to what?

    I 'upgraded' to the D2H for the pro body (it's about a hundred times more comfortable to hold, although it's also about a hundred times worse around the neck), small RAW files because I can't be bothered with custom WB while shooting (lighting changes too often) and larger VF. The D50 feels so...
