What good is a lens hood that is on the lens backwards? I see a lot of this at various places.
Add in big lenses without monopods and you have a nice recipe for less than stellar quality.

Any photographer in the arena at a rodeo is asking for it. Hope his life insurance policy is a big one.

I have to ask what the heck were they looking at, at that angle, and how much chance of actually recording something useful on a phone cam?

From my experience they could be watching a rocket launch.

I might be imagining it, but it looks like her gear might be well-supported on two firm beanbags.

Really? I don't seem to have any problems with my Canon 800 F5.6 and arms like matchsticks - you will be telling me that IS is needed next!
That looks like a 300 F2.8 - hardly a challenge.

Sorry I am not having a go at you but long lenses are a lot easier to hand hold than you might think. Weak arms and 1/250 sec+(IS off) is quite adequate at 800mm so long as the subject isn't moving too much. I find that subject movement (birds/wildlife) is the determining factor for me.

This is what they were looking at. It was race day at the British Grand Prix.

1. Takes up less space when transporting the lens in your bag.
2. Protects the lens against bumps and bashes while walking around.

Unless it is a bright sunny day I do this all the time with my 70-200 as the zoom ring is at the back of the lens. Don't do it with the 100-400 as the zoom ring is at the front and the reversed hood interferes.
