Doesn't that mess with the electronics ? Most electronics don't like to be suddenly shut off.

99.9% of electronics have no problem with just being shut off. Even computers are zero problems with being turned off (the electronics anyway).

The E-500 High Capacity Renewable Dehumidifier. Hmm weird? Just picked up 2 of these. The community grab bag was in effect so I ditched these in my trunk!

Never seeing these before I was amazed to see your "Post" on silica gel something? something? cool accessories... Saved me time Googling... They are very un balanced and no way these will work in the wall socket5 to aka renew/dry out the crystals... obviously the gels are dyed. Change dye color when dried out. I need to dig out my flimsy extension cord xmas type style... you know that brown one-- Plug it in lay it on its side> maybe the engineering dept [whom f ed up this design can put the plug/dry out, in on the side?]

It was a toss up between the Peak Design Capture, and the Spider system. Picked up the PD Capture from a forum member locally, and I gotta say, I really like it. I use it for my IR 20D, and have my 50D on a B;ack Rapid. They work well in tandem. I'm right-handed, but keep the PDC on my left side, and it still works easily. I love this thing.

If steroids are illegal for athletes, should PS be illegal for models?

Travel and need to pack bulky stuff or just want a kickass bag for clothes and everything else? It's the 5.11 Tactical SOMS. (external link) This is a website that deals with hardcore military travel items and tactical gear, not known as a baggage store. These are deployment bags, meant to take the hard knocks of military travel. But that's the secret.

When you look at the specs of their bags, you'll be blown away. I have two of their bags, basically rolling duffels on steroids. I'd been looking for bags like this for two years and last year finally found them during a Google search for luggage that would stand up to hard knocks such as travel photography.

The material is heavy 1600D ballistic nylon, the weight is just that of any other suitcase, and the same as the now popular and supposedly lightweight plastic-sided rollers if you compare the same volumes. All corners are covered with hard rubber bumpers, the wheels are more sturdy than I've seen on any other bag, and there are side zip pockets on both long sides. Measurements of the SOMS are exactly 62 inches, the max for a checked in bag that's normal size, so you won't pay for oversized. There's a plastic see through zip case on the top for customs declaration papers when you travel with a lot of gear. It has hard rubber ribs on the bottom to strengthen the length of the bag.

The rolling handle is really beefy and well made. One of the best features is that when empty, the short sides collapse and the height of the bag is minimal for storage. When open, there are two included long aluminum rubber ended rods that hold the bag open to full height. They fit into internal rubber grommets, and you simply remove the rods and collapse the bag for storage.

I have never seen such a well made bag, the older, better Tumi's included. I bought the oversized longer version of this bag for my last trip; it holds tripods and lightstands without an issue. You pay the oversized fee, but it's worth it for the space. It got beat around during a month of travel, but still looks new. All the bags have lifetime warranty.

The kicker is that the price is exactly the same as for an Eagle Creek duffel, and cheaper than a Tumi or Briggs and Riley of the same size, and infinitely better made. I just got the SOMS this week, as I wanted a standard sized bag for travel. My highest recommendation.

This is a real sleeper, so don't tell your friends until you're sure you have one on order.

Well I'm using it for lights not electronics.

But yeah would be good for things that need to be powered down

If you travel, it's the best. I say that having tried a number of respected bag makers such as Tumi, Briggs and Riley and Eagle Creek. Only the older Tumi's before they were made in China can hold a candle to these duffels, and they have a lot more features that even that Tumi duffel.

But I must say that I'm still using and abusing that old Tumi over the last fifteen years. The only thing that went wrong is that a grab strap ripped, which Tumi replaced free.

Eh? Very few electronics are bothered by the sudden removal of power. Two exceptions: projectors that need to cool down their bulbs, and computers that need to write data to their hard drive.

(OK, to be fair there was the CDC 6000 series supercomputer that broke whenever it lost power, but those critters were retired 40 years ago.)

All I want is a 10-2000 f/0.5L with no distortion that weighs 100 grams, fits in my pocket, and costs $300. Is that too much to ask?

Not so much an electrical issue as much as a software issue, the computer will turn on fine, you might just loose some data.

Been checking their site everyday waiting for these to come into stock :P

Any chance you can get a photo of your setup?

Jay,

Thanks for the tip on the rolling bag. I looked for one for almost a month before we flew to Las Vegas last July. I ended up getting nothing since I couldn't find one with the quality I wanted for a decent price. Next time I'm flying somewhere, I'll pick one up so I can transport my tripod more easily.

Thanks again.
