    Can any film shooters help me out?

    My friends Canon Elan 7E (which I sold him a couple of years ago) is kind of acting like it is stuck on a bulb setting. This happens when the camera is set on auto (the green box). When you press the shutter button the shutter opens and stays that way till you press the shutter button again...

    Canon 70-200L IS USM vs 100-400 IS

    I bought the 70-200. I needed the wider aperture and have no regrets.

    pricing question -- urgent!

    I allow myself 4 hours of PP for every hour of shooting. So for 3 hours of shooting. I'm figuring 12 hours of work. It doesn't always take that long but that's how I come up with a price. Figure out how much you want on that per hour basis and give them a quote.

    Look on Ebay for a seller called amvona.com they have a model AT-858BL. People I know on another forum rave about these things. You can pick one up for about $90.00 plus $15.00 shipping.

    FLORIDA TORNANDO photos ***SCARY***

    I know it's easy for me to say but it's just stuff. The family is OK and that's all that matters.

    Sigma 70-200 2.8 vs Canon 70-200 f/4L

    The f/4 is much lighter but the extra stop in speed on the 2.8 comes in handy more often than one may think.

    Moonlighting as a wedding photographer realistic?

    Yeah but it's a lot more than I need or want. I was just looking for world wide coverage for my equipment since I'll be traveling to eastern europe next month. I'm really only wanting something that will cover theft and damage
