    @CAJUNNSC ‘Thanks for sharing your tips!

    Nice video, I just walked a nice trail today and for those that don’t know, 30 pounds feels like 100 pounds after about 20 or so minutes so, pack light as you can… and be ready to pack up and head out…But always make sure you didn’t leave anything or drop anything. You won’t want to to go back and retrieve it later..if you can even find it..Lens caps, filter and such tend to disappear easily on the trail! Thanks Man!

    @SBMFfilms I read reviews stating that there was very little difference in IQ between the Kenko and the Canon, that’s why I bought the kenko at about half price. Images are still plenty sharp with the TC.

    Hey there Collin, I am getting into photography (will be mostly wildlife). I will be getting the Rebel T1i to start out with and a T-mount for my ETX-80 telescope to use as a 400mm telephoto which should work ok for now. Any way you mentioned you use a 1.4x Kenko teleconverter, now do these reduce image quality a lot or a little and should I buy the 1.4x Canon or the Kenko? I know the Canon is expensive but is it worth its extra buck. Please help. Also, keep up with the vids, I enjoy watching.

    @FrobblOo The flash will lighten up any shadow areas caused by harsh sunlight. In this case, the problem was worse because the large cypress tress created shade nearly all day. Where there wasn’t shade, there were harsh beams of light cutting through the tree tops. Either way, flash helped.

  9. FrobblOo says:

    sry my english isnt the best in understanding spoken english. what do you use the flash for in nature photography and tele lens?

    You like snakes and photography, just like me. Keep up the good work and good luck on your shots.

  16. Narkodas says:

    It certainly looks like a nice bag, and it’s pretty usefull to store a lens like that inside the bag that easily.
    Sadly, it is a fact photography equipment is expensive most of the time yeah..

  17. flecktonesrock says:

    It’s a Lowepro Lenstrekker. It’s very nice, and actually reasonably priced- something that’s not true with most photography equipment.

  18. Narkodas says:

    What camera bag did you use in this video? It looked quite nice.

    You from the Columbia, SC area?

  21. flecktonesrock says:

    Just on Canon rumors…..It may be around the corner, who knows? I’m very happy with the 50D though and I wouldn’t use the video function if I had it.

  22. heyheyheybra says:

    I have been using my Canon 40D for about a year now and I’m wanting to upgrade to a 50D very soon but I have been hearing rumours of a 60D to be released at the end of tghe year that comes with HD video! Has anyone else heard of this??

  23. xgusROX says:

    Haven’t watched part two yet but so far this is exactly the sort of video iv’e been looking for, nice job and nice lens.
    Subbed : )

  24. flecktonesrock says:

    Thanks for watching! 50D + 500mm with 1.4x TC.

  25. FischerPhotography says:

    Good Video. What camera were you using? I don’t think you said. I use the Canon 40D with the canon 600mm lens. I’ll head over and watch part two!!
