I suffer two major defects of personality. One is that I tend to fret over what I may need and end up over preparing or carrying two much.

The other is that I had a total loss house fire in 2001. As a result I tend to keep a lot of important or expensive items near me as much as possible. I was rendered homeless once again in 2006 after a hurricane, so I'm well aware of how bad an insurance company will **** you out of money through depreciation or technicalities during a claim.

It's to the point where I've accumulated enough gear that I've stripped my tenba down to pretty much bodies and glass and a few other accessories, and that goes everywhere with me. All my other stuff is in other cases, divided up by the amount of stuff I'll need for a shoot, and I just grab what I need and throw it in the car.

Cheap could be 500 for someone, or 50.

I'd recommend Adobe Lightroom 3. You can do a 30day trial period to see if you like it. If you have a mac, you can do a 30day trial on Aperture. Lightroom will work on both Mac and Windoze

Lightroom. If you just want basic software id get Adobe Bridge if its available to buy individually. I use "In camera raw" which is part of Bridge.

any other suggestions are welcome. thanks!
dude, i spent like 5 minutes on this post because of your damn avvy

as i was reading the above posts, something moved from your avvy and then i look at it for a few seconds and nothings moving. so i keep reading and something keeps moving so i stare at it for a little longer. this process repeated a few more times until i just sat back and just stared at your avvy until i saw the mouth move.

i felt retarded

This one is also super cheap and super simple. Chances are, you don't need anything else.

During my search for a camera. I was set on the powershot 1400. Then I came across the Canon PowerShot SX130IS and Fujifilm FinePix S1800 in the same price range as the 1400. Any opinion on these? They look like better camera/video for the money.

When viewing these on youtube, the fuji seems to become more blurry when zooming in video.

the 2 I asked about are not exactly compact point and shoots like the 1400 which is the reason why I am now leaning towards them as they seem to be better for the same price.

I just read that the canon shoots in MOV format while Fuji avi. Have heard that MOV can be a pain.


I'm reviewing the sample pics that people provide on Amazon between the 1400 and sx130 and sometimes the 1400 seems to have better results. I'm sure it depends on the user so thats mute.

Best Magic arm rig?

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...ion_Magic.html

Thinking of that. If anyone has any better suggestions let me know. I know I still need the clamp as well. Would be holding a 1D2, and 40D, which should be a problem according to the load capacity.

Thanks!

depends on the state. But i think in general they dont let anyone in period who is under 21 because they cant control what you do once you get inside, and I dont know anywhere that still does the x's because you can still get your friend or someone to get you drinks.

I hate to say it, but you are probably **** outta luck until you turn 21
