EDIT: btw, cover that flash socket, I've read that's the worst spot for water to get in! Otherwise, the body is fairly water resistant.

and the bottom of the camera...did you see the LensREntals tear down of a A7S2...I need to find those little socket covers...I am not sure where they ended up...but since I use a remote timer all the time, I always have something sitting on the hot shoe...

Their system is gorgeous I'll give you that! I've looked at it several times, how bulky do you find it to carry around?

Well, my filters are in a Kinesis filter pouch, so that is there regardless, and doesn't really take up much more real estate than my old LowePro filter pouch did. The WCC case I usually lay on top of everything else or put it in an outside pouch. This is what it all looks like inside of my Contrejour 35. If I don't bring the WonderPana then the WCC goes on top, the Kinesis pouch goes where the two filter holders are, and a 70-200 can go were the Kinesis pouch is.

wahhhhhh? Sony user using grads :lol:

bracket and/or grad in post :-)

even with water scenes, it's not an issue. Exposure for the sky, then one for water movement.

btw, I'm on my 3rd filter system, so yeah, I do know about GAS  :p

This will be it, I keep telling myself!

EDIT: btw, cover that flash socket, I've read that's the worst spot for water to get in! Otherwise, the body is fairly water resistant.

Ha ha. Even with 3 stops of grad on the sky I've still found myself having to pull the sky down and push the foreground. I have a twilight shot from the other day where I had 6 stops on the sky and none on the foreground. Still had to push the foreground and pull the sky a bit. -? Add focus stacking to that and it's about all the post work I want to do. It's hard enough focus stacking when the light is constantly changing, forget HDRing it too.

Yeah. I used to keep the plastic cover in the socket, and water still got in and turned the contacts green. Now I carry one of those cheap plastic covers for when the water is splashing. El Cheapo Rain Cover. (external link)

The problem is I am constantly forgetting to use it. :oops:

Doesn't look too bad. I think I've got just about every filter pouch made outside of the Kinesis. Lee filter book, lowepro, etc. I've ended up using one made by Clik that I like pretty well. Great protection and fits in the end pocket of my shoulder bag easily enough. It doesn't have a belt loop or anything though. I carry adapter rings and my 2 Lee holders (one for the zeiss 15) separately in another pocket. I've gotten to where all I carry is a 3 stop soft GND, and a 3,6, and 10 stop ND. I'd love to get it down from that but it's hard to do and still be able to do what I want sometimes.

I have one of these...https://www.bhphotovid​eo.com ...Pro_SLR_Storm_Jacke​t.html (external link)

And use it around water. If I feel like I might get splashed...I bought the Camo version, because it was at one point on clearance! And its ugly, so no one will want to steal it. Works for covering the gear doing LE too.

I have actually just added a 2 and 4 stop to the kit...so that I now have 2,3,4,6,10 and 16...sometimes 10 wasn't enough, but 16 was too long...or 6 wasn't enough and 10 was too long...so now I can make a lot more combinations to fine tune what I want...I have gotten away from LE a little this year and am going to get back to it...I really enjoy it and the images it produces...

This is a shot from Saturday morning, I decided to take in a sunrise on my way to Old Car City...but in my packing and organizing for Joshua Tree I left my remote at home...so I was limited to 30 seconds, so I could not break out the 6 or 10 stop. But I needed a longer than 20 second exposure, the water had a lot of chop to it, so I used my new FH Firecrest 4 stop and SR for 4 20 second images stacked. The new filters are so incredibly color neutral, I am really pleased with them. Later I stacked the 2 and 4 and still have very clean color correct images...the LEE 10 stop is probably going to be on the chopping block soon.

I can imagine it very well, since I've done it lol. Fortunately I have a backup with the 5D4, you can set a long exposure in the camera. I think I've done it a couple of times to just see how it works. IIRC, you can't have mirror lock-up at the same time though.

Mirror Lock up is not something I have to worry about anymore! But why Sony has not built in an intervalometer and remote feature in yet, is still kinda hard to get my head around...as much as you can do in camera...I learned a couple weeks ago that Olympus Mirrorless cameras have exposure options up to 60 seconds without a remote or timer...which is great...

Yeah I hear you. I never thought I would say this but I've been thinking some about the 7r3. Hard to ignore what it has.
