    Bogen Tripod/Head setup

    Thanks guys for the info. Although I will not be using the tripod on any hike. You guys really think that the tripod combo, about 7 lbs, really that heavy? I have a friend who own an old version 3021, replaced by 055, w/3265 grip and I thought it wasn't that heavy. Anyway, this will be use for...

    Pocket Wizard

    Thanks for the reply. I've got the swivel holder already but do I still need the hot shoe adapter if i want to use the 580EX II w/PW off camera? So the PW does come with cables and I could just hook it up on the SB-28. Cool... JR

    AE lock on Canon 40D

    I see, said the blind man. I guess it make sense that it doesn't work in manual. Exactly what you stated Mike what I was trying to do. Thanks guys. JR

    AE lock on Canon 40D

    Mike, Yes, I know what AE is. Maybe, I'm not explaining it correctly. It's on page 95 of the 40D manual. It's the little asterick button I'm talking about unless you are telling me that that button doesn't work on manual settings. If so, why didn't Canon state that on their manual. JR

    AE lock on Canon 40D

    When in manual setting, somehow the AE lock button doens't work. It works on all creative shot settings but not manual and it works using FEC. I don't have a second camera, since I've sold it, but I vaguely remember that it worked on my Rebel in manual setting. I haven't had a chance to go the...

    buying used lens at B&H

    I ended up purchasing a Canon 24-70mm 2.8L instead before the rebate deadline. I figure I will need that range more than the 70-200mm since it will be my first L lens. I will mostly use it for portrait and such. By the way, these are just going to be used with my old Digital Rebel. I can't...

    Do you burn CDs or DVDs?

    DeepSpring is correct. Coming from a video background, DVD-R is more compatible format.
