Yes, the site is down, and the host is being a total boner about it. I don't know if I have too much inclination to bring the forum back up since nobody was using it except for the chat, which kinda sucks.

I doubt I really need the capacity (or price) of F.Stop's bags, but damn they look nice.

I would go with a nice general purpose bag and add some insert options. This will leave you with more flexibility for non-camera uses.

The reason I'm considering the LowePro is that I'm rarely on a hike or traveling without my camera, and people say it's lightweight enough to actually be comfortable on a typical hike. Plus it still has a ridiculous amount of normal pack space on top.

i can help add a few things. i started doing the project to augment my sticky but there's just so much to cover and it's hard to do a comparison of flash vs no flash in stuff i do.

Word, sounds like a plan. I think I'm gonna focus a bit more on the theory of flash, modifiers, etc.

Ok here's a good one, my 7D takes totally black photos if the shutter speed is over 1/2000. What could cause this? I tried resetting the camera and no dice.

We needed more active members, more actual content.. I dropped off on posting up on the rumors section just because half the stuff I was getting (or alot more) was already available on CR... it seemed like with the exception of a few people throwing tons of pictures in the 'post a picture' thread, we only had a few truly active members.. sucks, but maybe it's for the best. Sub shouldn't be stuck with the bill for forums so that a few of us can chat, there's plenty of ways for us to do that for free.

Im assuming your not using flash for lighting and there is enough ambient light for the shutter speed?

What happens at the next SS increment down? I think its 1/1600 or something close? Basically is it just 1/2000 or is it everything above a certain value?

Ive heard, but never confirmed, that after a certain speed the shutter controls only the start of the exposure while the stopping of the exposure is handled electronically. Possibly try pulling both batteries, main and small coin battery and let it set for a bit. Very low tech option but sometimes it just needs a good reset.

On live-view equipped Canons, you can select first- or second-curtain electronic shutter.
