    yeah, i agree, although, i think the property you are trying to capture plays a huge roll in this as well.

    this is probably not something that he can setup and haul very easily....or maybe it is, i dont know.

    either way, if the houses are too close together, i am not sure how well it would work out unless he wanted to edit stuff out.

    the right house with the right size lot would be his ideal candidate, IMO.

    thats not too bad, its only 20 ft.

    however, with some more $$$ and a powerful motor, he could probably do it electronically with an up and down button.

    also, he will probably work on updating a few things, that will probably be one of them.

    i never knew this about the 40d, but if you are connected to your pc, you can see what your camera is aimed at through software that comes with the camera?

    that's cool. I'd love to have something like that for the car shows I shoot.

    guess I need to step up to a 40d too...
