    it was what came with my used sb800. i just wanted to check it out. ill be going back to the lumi, it was a one night trial. i didnt like the fact i had to add a crumpled up white napkin to help diffuse the light and therefor reducing the flash power. The midi bounce is just efficient due to its bounce angle.

    it sometimes is mandatory for them. and sometimes me too. We have to show face at the company VIP table. its fun most of the time, but when you dont want to go and have to, it blows.

    yeah man, i was sorta surprised that you started using a fong cause it seems so innefficient since you are also lighting all the people behind you and the lumiquest is sooooo good

    btw, there's some dude selling a bunch of shit on craigslist, location is (Strip/Sahara). He's legit, if you're still looking for stuff. I got a brand new sb-600 from him for $185. He lives in Allure. :mamoru:

    Zack Arias had a neat use for the lightspere. Painted it black for use with speed grids. Check it out.

    oh wow, small world. He was... interesting.

    There was a guy there buying his 300 2.8 when I bought the flash. He was trying to get me to buy his 85 1.4 but I declined. :o

    yep that's what he was wearing when I went too :rofl: I felt like a jerk sizing the guy up, but the number of craigslist deals I've done lately has made me a little wary. :o

    dude i basically got a brand new 24-70G 2.8 for $1350. shit was a steal, seriously. Gave me the original receipt and also signed a copy of the craigslist ad with his name and address.

    this lens is like 1800 new and 1650 used. Im so stoked, the lens is soooo good. Coming from a 24-70L, the nikon version is miles better. Its Slimmer, Lighter, and feels better built.
