Sucks bad that TwoTwo is out cause he was on fire! JS7 isn't doing anything but coming off the bike again this year and I don't think Dungey is aggressive enough to battle RV2 for the title. I think this season is pretty much locked up unfortunately.

Well your right, he's not "right in the head". He has a metal illness (sever depression)

Metal illness' that sever your depression blow!

But seriously, I've been following this guy's activity for about 10 years now. He's done alot of cool stuff and seen alot of nasty stuff in his time. This is his second major accident (the other was a broken back) in South Africa that I'm aware of. I hope he heels up fully and quickly.

I'm going to kill myself if I have to listen to that gay Brett Michael's song "Ride hard, rock hard" all…… year…. long

Recommended camera settings please

Auto?

Best bet is to pick up a book and find out how the different settings change the result. Better yet take a class.

That said, for shooting in the woods I'd probably default to Aperture priority and run lowest f-stop my lens permits. Set white balance on shade/cloud (I don't shoot raw so I try to get wb right, and will usually err on the warmer side). Run lowest ISO possible to get desired shutter speed, although you will have to bump it up (1000+) if you want to freeze a moving subject in low light, even with a fast lens.

If none of that made sense, return to the top of this post.

I've been out once to shoot my buddies. I had the shutter speed up to 1000 and the f-stop as low as my kit lens would allow (f3.5), but to get pictures with enough light in them I had to crank the ISO to 6400 which let a lot of noise. I've since bought a 50mm f1.8 that I'm wanting to get out and try. I'm also planning on buying a flash or 2 as well.

Here's the only decent things I got that day, with the help of some post processing of course. Sorry, I can't seem to figure how to post the images directly.

School me on Seattle - pubs, attractions

Check out the alibi room for some wicked pizza and beers. Directly across from the gum wall.

The seattle underground tour is pretty cool too.

Thanks for the tips guys! Being new to the game and having so many settings makes it a bit intimidating but it's a ton of fun!

Very new to the DSLR world and just bought a 7D. Can anyone recommend some basic settings that I can start with for shooting in the trees? Thanks in advance!

For that price, does it come with BONER HOLE TECHNOLOGY®?

LOLZ! My girlfriend has that job locked down.

They are very expensive. We also bought their pillows (2). With the mattress, pillows, IKEA bed frame, duvet and sheets, I'm guessing we're into it for nearly 5K? I've spent on a single bike before and I spend more time in my bed than on my bike.

User review please. Those things are expensive!

After only 1 night's sleep, it feels great. Give me a week or so to truely test it out.
