i have an old hanimex tz1*32, for a pentax me super. will it fry my 1000D/XS if I mounted it and fired it? The 400D is safe to 250v but i'm not sure about the XS
All the people [i]without[/i] a 5D2 saying they're holding out for the 3's, i bet most of them will end up buying a mark ii anyway. its not like game consoles where the newest one fills in a price point of the previous. mkii's will still sell for about $2k while the mark iii's will probably be somewhere around $3.5k body only. even over time, the mark ii will always be cheaper than a mark iii.

yeah bopie, but by the time i go to upgrade people will be pissing themselves over a 5D IV and the 5D II will be ooold news [editline]15th February 2011[/editline] and i can't check the flash until tomorraw argh
I'll be carelessly tossing a 1DsV in the backseat of my porsche by then. [img]http://static.facepunch.com/fp/ratings/rainbow.png[/img]

[QUOTE=BuDSpOoNce;28047453]Is it wrong that I just got my drivers license and instead of saving up for a car, I just keep saving up for photography equipment? :v: I don't think i'll have a car in the next 3 years if I keep this up. But honestly I prefer having an awesome camera and taking photos than being able to drive. Anyways, right now I've just got: -Canon EOS 400D -Two kit lenses -Sigma 50mm 1.4 -Rusty old tripod -Ugly camera bag Saving up for a 60D. After that i'll probably save up for a new bag and then maybe an external flash.[/QUOTE] Well I'd be torn in that case. I absolutely love driving around. It's allowed me to go out and get quite a bit more photographs than usual. [editline]14th February 2011[/editline] [QUOTE=daijitsu;28057541]riding a bike in search of good photographs feels MUCH more inspiring than driving a car around town. There's less distraction, less obstruction by the vehicle, more places you can squeeze into, and pulling over to get a shot doesn't require a whole road shoulder or parking spaces.[/QUOTE] true dat. It's also why I'm buying a bike mount for my car soon. Well not because of photography, but because riding bikes is so awesome.
[QUOTE=daijitsu;28052974]ah, then it's fine I suppose. Just didn't want to let the impression that asking questions on future equipment in here was the thing to do.[/QUOTE] Well I looked at the title of this thread and thought that the General Gear Discussion Thread would be a good place to ask a question about which gear to get and where to get it, Correct me if I'm wrong.

Jesus fuck, I hope that isn't your car.
It's not. I had a hard time finding a vw w/roof rack, w/bike. My personal taste would lean towards something like this.

[QUOTE=ijyt;28057863]The 60D is lovely, but wouldn't it make more sense to go FF from a 400D?[/QUOTE] I'd love to get a 5Dmk2 but that's going way beyond my budget unfortunately. I've been thinking whether to go for the 60D or the 7D. I tried comparing them in snapsort but I don't see much difference between the two, and the advantages of the 60D appeal to me more. [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/wG4ZT.jpg[/IMG] Maybe snapsort is missing some features or something, because I don't think it's worth spending the extra cash for the 7D.
Can anybody recommend a good remote timer for my 450D so I can do timelapses? I was looking at this [url]http://www.amazon.co.uk/Timer-Remote-Control-RS-60E3-Canon/dp/B003WD0IKO/ref=sr_1_11?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1297766980&sr=1-11[/url] I'm not sure if it'll do exactly what I want. Basically I need an intervalometer, so I can set the exposure time and the time between exposures. At the bottom of the info it has "Exposure Count (N)" I'm not sure what that's referring to exactly... Any help would be much appreciated.
[QUOTE=daijitsu;28047253]all the settings and info make no sense to manual control. Maybe it just says manual because it was in P mode or something[/QUOTE] I mean the Aperture and ISO and shit.

I made an intervalometer with my Arduino, some stereo audio cable, 2 reed relays and a 2.5mm stereo jack. Going to build it into a nice enclosure using a custom board at some point.
At the moment. Canon 400D 50mm f/1.8 70-200 f/4 L 18-55 f/3.5-5.6 (Kit Lens) Crumpler 6 Million Dollar Home Crumpler Industry Disgrace Camera Strap In the next month or so I plan on finally getting my 7D, it was a toss up between the 7D or the 5DMKII. It just seems more practical for what the type of Photography I do. After that I plan on getting myself an external flash, most likely the EX430II. Then after all that, I'll look into getting myself some ND Filters to achieve some of those great water shots, and the like. As for the type of Photography I do: [img]https://dl-web.dropbox.com/get/8883.jpg?w=4eba517b[/img] So yeah, basically I'm looking to get into the Sports Photography field, mainly to do with Motorsport.

I'm uncomfortably paranoid while driving around roof racks. Seeing how my car is a hatchback, a trunk mounted rack sounds perfect.

[QUOTE=codenamecueball;28096514]Christ that's a shitload of distortion on your phone[/QUOTE] There's distortion? I was too busy wanking over his gear
[QUOTE=codenamecueball;28096514]Christ that's a shitload of distortion on your phone[/QUOTE] no, I just work out a lot
[QUOTE=Jaanus;28098914]no, I just work out a lot[/QUOTE] Well with all that gear I'd imagine you probably have to be able to bench press at least 600 pounds.
