    1D MKII

    So he sent me another email... He has to check the shutter actuation's still but gave me some more info. Bought it in 2005, Serviced in July 2008, 4 gig Compact Flash card, extra batter, original manual, and accessories. Sounds like a steal to me... Hoping he is okay with waiting a week for me...

    Should I continue or stop?

    As stated in some earlier posts, winter sucks for taking pictures, yes there are great opportunities and you should jump on them all. But it's so discouraging when there isn't a "pretty sky" or trees with new leaves, or a nice warm sunrise to welcome you in the morning to take a picture of. But...

    1D MKII

    When I first saw that 5d, I freaked out at the price especially with that lens. When I looked closer the lens and camera are separate lol =]

    1D MKII

    Oh, I know someone's going to throw it out there... I mostly shoot portraits of friends, family, stuff like that. I do a little "makeup" like making people appear dead/dying, and I'm working on a project with a paintbrush "going into" the neck bleeding out paint. I also shoot some skateboarding...

    1D MKII

    Focusing...

    So when I am using my camera, I go to take the picture press it down halfway to focus, yet the only focusing "square" that is lighting up is in the bottom left corner... This is the only place that will let any focusing occur. otherwise it wont let me. Anyone experience something similar? Please...

    Choosing an umbrella.

    I've heard nothing but great reviews on this umbrella. It's extremely cheap so I'm wondering if anyone has any personal opinions or any recommendations...Here it is Impact | 45" Convertible Umbrella | UBBW45 | B&H Photo Video Thanks -Rob

    I read something somewhere that says I can return the 400s within 2 years for 800's for only the price difference plus 25$. Anyone ever do this? Thanks. -Rob

    Now would the difference for the 800's and 400's be immaculate? Because the 400's are 50 dollars cheaper, yet i think the 800's would make for a better setup later down the road... Any side by side tests? -Rob

    okay. Thank you so much for the links and everything! Completely changed my view of flashes to the high view had of constants. Now one more thing, if I'm shooting with these how will I know what speed and f stop to shoot at? Test shots? this is before I buy a light meter... Thank you! -Rob

    Okay. So if I bought this set, a sender, and reciever, would I need another reciever to be able to trigger 2 at the same time? And if I wanted to buy soft boxes down the road which would I buy to fit these lights? I'm sorry I'm asking so many questions... Thanks! -Rob
