No. Most of the time, paintball is played when there's plenty of sunlight. If you ever try to use strobes at an event when it's getting dark out, you'd get kicked off the field quick from player, media and referee complaints. Plus there's the problem of moving them and the power source since paintball is a quick sport, usually.

EDIT: I didn't think about indoor, but still. I don't see that going over well with anyone.

pretty sure someone will ***** about it so they'll have something to blame for losing or not seeing someone there.

i've never seen anyone use strobes for paintball

I've shot strobes with paintball, but not during an actual game.You would need to get your strobes way high up not to affect anyones vision (they would still complain).

It would be cool to do a series of "staged" paintball photos lit with strobes. I might have to do that idea sometime. I just need some strobes with faster flash durations.

Hey guys. I was wondering what kind of telephoto lens to get for my Canon Eos Rebel XS. I'm pretty limited on price range and I'm looking at shooting a lot more of sports this upcoming year than anything else. Any ideas on what to buy?
Thanks for any help

75-300 = ~200$

70-200F4L = ~500$


The second lens is a faster aperture and better image and build quality, but if you are just starting out, the first lens will be more than adequate.

Question, I have a CS5 master collection box. There 4 discs in it. My ex got it from her uncle (who sold his company to adobe) to use, and it's been sitting in my house for over 6 months. I have no means of contacting my ex nor do i want to. What can I do with the software, as I have no use for it?

Check out www.bhphotovideo.com under the used section. All P&S cameras in your price range are about the same. A usedCanon G9 or something could be your best bet. Also delete this thread and post in the faq. Good luck! Photography is a great great thing!

And just google the image for a photo of it, google "___camera test shots for potential test shots of it.

How would a canon rebel xti be for a starter camera looking to get into sports and some landscape and possibly people photography. There's a great deal in our bst section for 450 for a bundle. My friend recommended a 30d which I was going to get but this is cheaper and seems like a nice bundle

edit: What about a nikon D3000? Keep in mind I'm starting out here. is that really just a glorified point and shoot?

What does a bundle include? Because with rebates right now you're able to get a new T3 for $499

Couple questions for you Nikon pros out there, since I'm not as familiar with non-Canon glass:

Do "D" lenses have their own focusing motors, or do they rely on the body for focus drive?

Other than the latest advances, is there any serious benefit to G glass over D glass?

AF-S lenses have motors in them, AF-D does not. AF-I is the only other designation that has an internal motor, but those are more common in older telephotos.
