Thanks dude!

And with a modern lens, no coating would be taken off, that crap is baked on. Filters are good too, but I'm too cheap Asian for them and a coating scratch will do basically nothing to an image.

That's what I thought too. And I actually may get some cheap UV filters for when I do video anyways, can't have bugs hitting the lens @130mph now can we? lol

Now...I don't need a flash with HSS, think the YN 565 is the best bet? Or maybe get two of something cheaper that can work with my camera off camera without buying triggers? :/ decisions, decisions lol

Dude you've repped me everyday for the past week, looks sort of sketch... Get cheap filters for that, I wasn't expecting you to be driving at 130 with the camera... tongue.gif My YN460IIs work fine, they MIGHT get a little weak in daylight (never tried) but just get two and tape em together if you need, and get light modifiers, straight flash will look bad even if off camera most of the time. And learn to use rim light or people/things will look weird.

Hmm, I think I'm settling on:
  • YN 560 or two...or 3 lol
  • 77mm ND filter you linked
  • $5 77mm and 72mm UV filters for when I need them for video
  • 2 step up adapters for the 85 f/1.8 and the 70-200 f/4


Ok, so now I need some stands, brackets, umbrellas...lol

Oh and if you don't have one already, get a cheap monopod, if you're buff enough, camera in one hand flash on a stick on the other, you'll get awesome pictures. Or you can give it to an assistant/friend/voice activated lightstand and have that move it around, much lighter than a lightstand.

Woah, the 560 is like a powerful 460II! Neato. And I'd recommend getting just one E-TTL flash cause you never know when you'll need to use it. Maybe 1 560 and 1 whatever the TTL one is called?

And the ND filter is also good for video. I can shoot wide open at 1/50th to keep it sexytime even at high noon.

Am I crazy or did the price of like every Kodak film just go way up? Ektachrome is up to $3.50/sheet now.

I'm good on getting a monopod atm, I can use a broom stick and duck tape if I need to. biggrin.gif

The YN 565. I'm not sure tho, is the ETTL necessary? I like shooting everything in manual. lol

Now there is one thing that keeps nudging me b/c I keep forgetting...I will not need a wireless trigger or do I? I can just use the on camera as a master to set off the remotes right? B/c there was something I saw about the YN 565 a while ago that made me want it over the 560 and I can't remember if it was just the Wireless ETTL.

That is the stand set I saw b4, thanks for the link.

Well I'd get triggers, 50 bucks for a set on ebay. You can trigger with the pop up flash but it WILL add to exposure even at minimum power. Almost forgot about that. But if you're on a tripod you can block the forward light with your hand and there is usually enough light bouncing around to trigger the off camera strobes.

First picture taken by some teenage girl's new DSLR? NOPE, D700 and Zeiss 50 1.4. I don't understand people sometimes. These people who shoot digital and have Zeiss have the worst pictures. People who shoot digital and Leica are usually bad on FM at least. Film Leica and Zeiss shooters have the best pictures ever for some reason. Almost like they're actually good photographers or something?

That's probably because you have to really care about what you're doing to shoot film nowadays. The lazy people who just want crappy snapshots have all migrated to digital.

People who have no idea what they're doing seem to think that better gear = better pictures, so they'll go blow $3000 on pro gear to take photos of their kids and dogs. Real photographers can get get excellent pictures with pretty much anything, so they tend to be a bit more discerning about what they spend money on.
