So I figured while I’m stationed here in southern afghan I might as well have my wife back home ship me my camera gear. What better time to practice low light shots, star trails, light painting, and get to know my 70-200 2.8 better, right? I recently purchased a 2x TC from a POTN member and it paired with my lens should make me really mad and needing a tripod really quickly..
This is an extremely dusty environment, and when I’m back from my deployment I’ll most likely drop my 7D off at the nearest camera store for a good cleaning. Anyone have any comments or advice for really dusty areas?
Finally, I have a 580II that I might not be able to use too often, as the bright flashes might make some of the Soldiers out here a bit nervous.. but we will see..
While my package comes, I am so nervous of having my gear go through the mail. Yes it is all insured, but 12,000 some mile trip through many hands is a bit nerve racking…
