    better bag. that one has the worst straps ever. if you do have to carry it for distances, you'll thank yourself later. this comes from experience.


    the tamrac expedtion series is top notch

    I haven't used the Lightsphere much, But so far it works pretty well. I tried the omni bounce covers. The LS shots turn out much softer and even for me.

    if you actually want a list of things to buy, tell us what you shoot. otherwise it will be taken as just a way of showing off your stuff

    I'm actually just getting more serious with my photography. For the past couple years I've just been using a fuji s7000 p and s with minimal manual controls. I kinda just went alil overboard with the buying after I bought the rebel xt. Which was just a month and a half ago. I missed the canon rebate. :(

    Those items that you've listed is a little too hardcore for me. The body and flash I have are suiting me fine for now.

    Well...I sporadicly shoot miscellaneous things.....Ranging from Landscapes to macro's of the standard flowers-bugs-random detaild objects. Which reminds me... I was thinking of getting some kenko tubes for the 50mm 1.8 . Anyone here have them?

    Okay, if you need to waste more money on another lens i'd go an EF100 Macro (if you like that sort of thing), or 1.4extender/400mm lens for wildlife.

    I don't see it as a waste...more of an investment.

    What kind of printer do you guys recommend that prints A3 sizes? Which ones do you guys own? Right I have an old hp deskjet 1220c pro series.

    Right now I have only 1gig of ram. Seems like its sufficient for what I do in photoshop. Does 4 gigs of good ram really make that much of a difference when working with file sizes <500mb. Is it that much faster?

    No, not unless your computer struggles.
    Compare your commit charge to physical memory in task manager. Then set Photoshop to use a reasonable amount of ram in edit>preferences.

    i like my epson 4800. but i doubt that is in your future. the 2400 is great, but at this point I would wait to hear the reviews of the new canons
