    funny, the D40 does a good job of tracking too but I like the illusion that is the feeling of controll. I hope I can get some shots up this year.

    I trust the Canon and fix later. I don't use an incident meter.

    Yeah, I guess riding with a heavy pack of photo gear is basically the cost of promoting the sport and your brands. Of course, you get to write off all of your trips and photo gear as business expenses, so it's not all bad...

    i have a dakine sequence. i think it was about 1 or 150
    I took a shot in the dark on the spelling, I thought it was said but I think I got it marked a misspelling on a paper last year so I went with zed, it was obviously wrong...lol

    Can you share any skiboarding photography tips with us? I've never bothered to bring a camera with me to the slopes because of concerns like:
    1. Crashing into something hard and busting my gear
    2. Trashing the gear by getting it wet
    3. Getting the exposure right in the white, white snow.
    4. Getting run over by out-of-control 8 year olds while taking a shot.


    How do you keep your gear from getting hosed? Any tips for maximizing our chances of getting a decent shot?

    August 19th's shot is amazing. It's usually pretty hard to tell a black is a black in photographs. That def is not the case with this shot.
