Went to the Chicago auto show today with a media pass, took 10.91GB worth of photos and got some crazy good access to the cars.

It's so nice to use an 85mm prime indoors at an auto show with nobody getting in the way

Nice story, but where's the proof?

Thanks for the explanation... I didn't know the difference. I'll let you know how it is after I try it out.

7D prices are creeping up. Cameras are getting as bad as gasoline when it comes to price fluctuations. I've seen the 60D as low as $799 and as high as $1100. Now the 7D looks ready to jump to MSRP. Crazy.

your avatar is making the right expression for the camera situation you're explaining.

Last week it was $1347 on Amazon. This week there are a few vendors with a couple left in stock at $1449, but most other vendors including Amazon are nearing the MSRP-minus-rebate price of $1599.

1399 in Ontario, but then add taxes. if it weren't for our taxes I'd say send me money, i send you camera But if i remember correctly, you have some family in London that could do that for you too.

I can usually talk them down a bit at my local shop. I can look into it if you like, see what price I can come up with.

Thanks, Reed, but I'm pretty much stuck with Amazon. I got a bunch of gift certs for Xmas and I've been adding to them as sort of a lay-away plan so it's Amazon or nothing. I can wait, though. The prices are bound to come back down.

EDIT: I see they're still in the $1345 range at B&H and Adorama. Usually you can buy from them through Amazon, but not now. Weird.

The guy selling the 30D on CL is coming by with it tomorrow. I had a talk with him today and he claims it's in outstanding condition. If it is, I'll give him his $250 asking price. Then it's time to try my hand at swapping in a split focus screen.

The stock agency I'm with just sent out an email saying they can give students 100% royalties (instead of the normal 60%) now for two years... of course this happens a month before I'm set to graduate.

For those of you who have been watching the various photography workshop videos (e.g. OneLight) on my website, I have removed them temporarily while I remake the portals.

I'm trying to make it easier for me to add new content on a regular basis for all of you... so stay tuned!

Yeah... I'll try to make it live again tonight, but I've got a lot of new content that I'll slowly be putting on the site as well.

Hey guys,

So... here is the updated photography website: http://www.ashuc.com/photography

login: bimmerpost
password: it's my username here (note the capitalization)

I would appreciate it if you stream content as opposed to trying to download/saving it. The videos should be compatible with iOS, but I haven't tried Android.

Also, if there is any content you'd like to share with others, or content you would like to see, let me know via PM.

Let me know if you run into any issues. Finally, thanks to Reed for sharing some of the videos. I will be updating the website with more videos, documents, etc over the next couple weeks.

Enjoy.

No worries, figure if people aren't at least learning something, they can be entertained.
