took this on the train last night heading to my folks for the weekend (installed Lr4 on mom's pc last night so I could play)

shot with 24-105L, gave it the tilt-shift in-camera filter effect, cropped, and applied a preset I created

the above is, in my mind, how I would try to see it. Sometimes we get lessons in 'attachment' to 'things' and sometimes its karma. Sorry this happened to you.

I recall 20+ yrs ago my employer gave me an extra week paycheck by mistake and after quick pondering I decided to keep it. Fast forward 2 yrs and I walked into my apartment one day and my computer had been stolen equaling about the same money. When my eyes spotted the 'void of space' where my computer system had been - my immediate response was to smile and think back to the 1 wk paycheck.

All that said - I let my Camera gear insurance lapse and for $182 a yr it covers my $7,000+ from virtually anything - repairs, theft, 'missing', whatever... time to get that going...

Good prices on 7D's out there - but if you wait - the better sensor 70d with better noise will be out... just sayin...

and yes - 'call' the pawn shots around giving them a head's up as to what your gear is. report tot he police with serial #'s so if you find it in a shop - you can legally grab it.

Finally - dig up your serial # - there is a website run by a guy who got his stuff stolen and developed how you can search the net for pics taken by your camera - because its in the exif info

Well, sobriety is kicking in...Thank God. I can do without the headache, though. Not my favorite way to spend father's day. Apparently, I didn't click the right buttons on the lens at BH. I'm thankful, for that, too. Saves me cancelling the order.

My gear is still gone. And, I just have to accept that right now.

Sorry for trashing up the thread on father's day. Happy Dad's day to all. I think I need to sit this one out.

And, just to get it out of the way... I never leave my gear in plain sight. It was in it's sling bag, behind my front seat. I'm so careful about it that it's automatic. It was definitely thieved. Sigh.

Sorry to hear the news Stro. You can't help being bummed out when someone steals from you.

Wish I'd read this before heading to Best Buy lol. Just picked up a replacement kit. Was hoping this local guy would've gotten back to my inquiry about his 7D, but oh well. The bad part isn't really the body but the lenses :( Guess I'm going to rebuild my collection. But, I get to do it with more knowledge of what I actually use and shoot most, this time. 70-200 IS MK II is the first on the list, me thinks.

Well, as a teenager I was no angel. So, payback is a drag but necessary I guess.

Insurance is cheap...and it will protect against accidental damage, loss, or theft. Worth it.

My wife got me the 24-70L......lens cup. I knew when I saw a Canon box that something was up, we hadn't talked about lenses for a while and I knew she probably wouldn't just go get one... It is actually pretty cool and will be pretty amusing at work. The zoom ring even works, ha.

I've been meaning to get a policy for a while, now. Looks like I won't put that off any longer.

The guy with the 7D finally replied, but I'd have to cough up for a lens. If I weren't moving, this would be a non-issue. Sigh.

I'm definitely going to have to start playing around with the in-camera filters. I've been messing around with doing it manually in CS5 and the learning curve is a little high for my current attention span. Having never really messed with the in-camera filters, is it applied to jpegs or raws? I really don't like doing raw+jpg as it just seems wasteful to me.

Edit. Just answered my own question. It works on raws. Sweet.

18-135 kit lens seems pretty nice, so far. That extra stop over the nifty 250 helps. I won't complain too much about using this in the interim I suppose.

A quick shot at sunset on Maui... hard to get a bad shot there.

I don't shoot in jpeg - but the process creates a jpeg version of your original with the filter effect applied

Yeah, I figured that out through trial. Also found out that I can manually set the file names to start where I left off with the other body.
