Thanks!
I think what we can do is have a disclaimer that "prices shown were as of 2/20/12"
Showing prices will give someone a place to start within his/her budget, what do think?
I'm pretty sure that the product details are accurate for searching, so no problems there.

I feel the prices should be left out - for example - what price sources and how many are being checked? Lightroom 3 was down to $69.95 just as one example. Anyways, it will either evolve, or fall to the wayside, time will tell

If you take advantage of the current low Lightroom 3 prices - that noise reduction technology will almost make you bulletproof so you can even use ISO3200+ as long as your shot is exposed well from the get-go. That is why I use Auto ISO in Manual mode - and when we track BIF - out background is ever changing and changing - thus our exposure is ever changing - so for me - Auto ISO is one less thing I have to worry about. Although - if you take shots at ISO 3200+ and have to do much cropping in your editing - obviously Lightroom's noise reduction (or any Adobe product using ACR6+) can only do so much magic...

Don't worry about time of day - try Auto ISO and from there - learn what light conditions/weather conditions to avoid. That's my suggestion, anyways.

enjoy

...ehm!!... None of the Adobe programs work with my setup. However, I do have the Linux equivalent programs and they do work well and I am reasonably adept at using them.

I prefer to avoid the NR, as it does have some impact on clarity and my 18-200 needs all the help it can get!:D

I will try shooting M say f8, 1/1250 and let the ISO on auto, from what you say it should work well.

The time of the day is a consideration for me with regards to the angle of the light. The more horizontal it becomes, the more the eyes and the underbody of the birds should pop!

I sincerely appreciate the time you take to guide me through the early steps. It is very exciting and rewarding to shoot these fast moving feathery targets!

The boys before the curtain fell!

I think prices help cause they give people a ballpark of what they are gonna pay for that item, but it's always up to them to search for it, you know since our economy changes with supply and demand of the item and all that jazz. I mean most people know to check eBay, Amazon, and B&H / Adorama / Abes of Maine when it comes to buying gear or even locally to see if their store will price match.
