A little change of pace...one of the things that's been keeping me crazy busy lately!

a quick question.

It seem that most who frequent this thread are really serious about their photography. I just invested a pretty good amount of $ into my gear, especially considering that photography isn't a profession for me. My question, can someone explain or lead me to the right direction about insurance on my gear? Im not really sure where to start looking.

Will my auto insurance company be someone to go to or is there a specific insurance company that deal with photography equipment.

Here's one from a recent shoot.

I myself am still a bit of a n00b when it comes to mounting rigs, so I'm not sure what works well
Thanks Armin. That's what I mean, this was shot at ISO 100... I don't get why I'm getting all this noise from a D90. Any ideas?? The road itself is a little over-processed, so that's understandable. But the rest of the picture was barely touched (just simple adjustments).

In that shot, I mounted the rig on the hood. One suction cup right behind the scoop, the other one by the headlight. I try to use places near the edges so it doesn't flex as much.

Today I shot Ryan's Cobalt SS, and we used his back window for both suction cups, worked well! That's a charm of having a hatchback haha!

Armin, I received my print in the mail yesterday, it looks awesome! Thanks for jumping on that so quick. Need to get a frame and get it into my office.

Nice wedding shots man! We should have come to you for our wedding coming up. Maybe you could have shot my car also, haha. Me and my fiancee just did an engagement shoot on Saturday and I spent most of the time talking with the photographer about her lenses LOL.

Here's a new interior photo from last weekend.

Typically, it's your homeowners insurance that will cover your camera gear...that's how mine works. But, if you get your car insurance and your home insurance from the same place, they should be able to work something out with you. You just need to make sure you provide them with receipts and such for everything.

Oh, and very nice shot! This is a good example of how a slight backlight can work to your advantage. Good job not overexposing the white car too. I'd say the only thing I myself would add to the shot is a little bit of graduated ND filter for the sky, but that's pretty much it

You know, taking another look at it, I'm not seeing much noise on the car itself, but the way you processed the ground is where there's a bit more noise. I also noticed that the focus on the car is just a little bit off as well, so that might be throwing things off for me too. I'd want to see a well-exposed still shot to see if you're indeed having more than normal noise issues at ISO 100.

Thanks for the tips on the rig. I've been hesitant to put the suction cups on the hood (especially given the WRX's aluminum hood) for fear of denting it, but if it seems to work ok, I might just have to give it a try. I've been using the roof so far and I just can't get wide enough even with my 12mm.

You're most welcome, congratulations again And hey, I'm available! I'd even give you a discount if you're willing to pay the airfare and lodging.

I dig the interior shot...very good use of vignetting in this case. I would maybe try to get the tach at a thirds crosspoint to get rid of some of that extra space on the left of the frame, but otherwise nice work!

As far as the insurance thing for me...

My insurance has a special area for Camera gear, video or photography

it's about $3.50 a month to cover about $4k worth of gear FYI

Hmmm... I'll try to go out and do a still shot today, then I'll post it up. Someone said that newer CMOS sensors perform weaker than older CCD sensors at lower ISOs. Because I definitely never noticed anything like that with my D40X, and my style of shooting/processing hasn't changed (I don't think).

I wish I had a lens that went down to 12mm. I'm stuck shooting at 18mm for now. That's why I can never get the car in profile and I'm forced to take shots from the front/rear. Are there any good budget lens I could get? I've looked around and the cheapest was by sigma 10-20mm I believe (almost $500)... I don't even care if it's prime. Thanks!

I hate how NASIOC's auto image resizing works sometimes. I first looked at your shot and thought it was soft...then clicked "view the full image" and BOOM - much better.

Great shot! Gino looks like he's going to backhand someone.

Hmmmm I'm not sure about that. My friend shoots weddings with her D90 and I've never noticed any noise issues with her photos. Not sure what to tell you there...

My Tokina 12-24mm was around $500ish when I got it, and you'll be pretty hard-pressed to find a quality wide angle prime lens for that much You can always look at the used market though!

Siiiick, I dig it. I like how the florescent lights almost give a sense of motion to the photo, like it's all coming at you. Good job keeping the background dark in this one. I guess my only real nitpicky thing about it would be that I wish the wheel face wasn't so close to the edge of the frame, and if you wanted to take the time, maybe clone out some of the debris on the ground. Nice work!

I had a Tokina 12-24mm also on my 50D. It was a great lens, picked it up for $300 used and sold it recently for $350. Then I picked up a 17-40mm which doesn't get NEARLY as wide, but it's a better walk-around lens. If you can find a Tokina 12-24, pick it up!
