"@antton, bringing 2 profotos skating? Isn’t only the bigger one fast enough also? Seems like you could replace the profotos with your 2nd lumey no? Lately I’ve been bringing a think tank roller, a tamrac shoulder bag (straps onto the handle of the roller) and a stand bag. Def doesn’t weigh ~100LBS tho. at least I hope it doesn’t. I don’t have as extensive as a digi setup as you or allen though."
"I’ve gotten a ticket for shooting the love gap in Philly… The ticket said something along the lines of “encouraging skateboarders”… I guess a hasselblad really makes the lemmings jump, not sure why their stupidity is my fault though…"
"@antton film vs digi is only ridiculous because the answer is obvious"
"you got it antton. ND’s esp for shooting film cameras with slower shutter speeds, and now DSLR’s which act like film cameras (shooting at 1/50thish for 24p) you need those ND filters to get any acceptable aperture. polarizers help with color contrast being killed during the daytime etc."
"end of day, the dvd/cd drives hurt battery life, another place for dust to get in, apparently add thickness… apple makes a usb external dvd burner/reader, well designed. most/all times you’d really need one is in the same place. say for work where people need for software keep one in the office space – for the dvd users they can keep one around the house. i’d rather a thiner computer w. more room for ram and to design performance issues than a dvd drive i’ll “conveniently” use twice a year."
