I could do with something like this. When I'm shooting I usually have my camera in my hand with the strap wrapped around my wrist a couple of times. When I'm not using it I'll normally have it slung over my shoulder though, which that wouldn't be able to do tongue.gif

Can anyone recomend a cheap camera sling off amazon? ( preferably under $20 )

I'm going to be carrying around a gripped t3i with a 70-200 f4 around all day at the race track, and could use a comfortable strap. ( or I may just rig my gel bass guitar strap to work )

Also, I'm trying to decide if I should bring a tripod.

I got great shots going handheld at the F1 race, but unsure if I should bring it or not ( trying to bring a minimal amount of gear )

This is what I use.

cool, I saw it earlier, but the cheaper prices could mean that some are better than others. Just ordered, be here friday in time for the race day.

I'm also thinking about not gripping my camera, and instead just bringing another battery in my pocket. Not sure though.

What kind of setup is everyone using to take pictures of their rig? I am looking a table top studio setup to fit a full tower.

Same here. I play with different angles, focal lengths, etc. but my rig stays where it is.

Whoo! just snagged an awesome seat for the MotoGP race tomorrow.

( if anyone happens to be there lets meet up )

I'm excited, as a year ago just before the race I bought my camera, currious to see how well i've improved and how well some of the gear I accuired helps.

Last time I went to the track I was an idiot and brought tons of crap I didn't need. This year its just my t3i, 70-200, and my EOS-M with the 18-55 for some wide shots.

Only bringing my camera backpack to load it up with waters.

Speaking of simplifying one's kit, I've finally posted my Taiwan photos to Flickr. The only lens I carried for my D7000 was my 30 f/1.4, and for casual snapshots (which I didn't upload) I just carried my iPhone. Forgot how much I enjoy shooting with my 30.

Here are some of my favorites from the trip.

Carrying such minimal kit made the trip much more enjoyable (I did the entire week out of a 35 L Patagonia backpack which was great in the night markets and staying in hostels, as well as dashing around airports). However, it's definitely made me notice how cumbersome a DSLR can be... By the end I was seriously GAS'ing for something small with a fast wide angle.

The time has come, I'm looking for a flashgun, but I'm on a budget so I'm looking at Yongnuo's offerings. I like the price of the YN-560 II/III and everything else about it but I'm not sure if the lack of TTL metering ability would be a problem for me, even though I probably wouldn't be using a flashgun all that often. I've seen for a similar price there's the YN-468 II but I don't like the look of it, and it isn't as powerful which I think may be a disadvantage if I'm using it to light stuff up creatively.

The thing I'm most concerned about not having TTL for is use as a fill in flash, is this fairly easily done manually? Also I assume with a manual flash it's only the flash that works in manual mode, as in you can still use the camera in all of the program modes and just need to adjust the flash power, etc...

So what would you guys recommend? 560, 468, or burn a humongous hole in my pocket with the 565EX?
