    Some samples of my new Sigma 8 - 16 ultra-wide angle lens in action in low light last night at Metal Central.

    I think my next purchase will be a fisheye. The attachment to the wide angle lens doesn't really give the illusion of a fisheye, more a porthole of a ship. How's your new wide angle lens going, Tim?

    Haven't had much of a chance to try out the new lens yet - just a couple of "meh" test shots in the back yard. We have I think 5 video shoots coming up in the next month or so, so I expect we'll get a lot of use out of it by the end. :)

    And I would also like to grab a nice fisheye when I get a chance too. I think that's the one thing my collection is missing right now (more or less, you can never have too many good lenses of course!)

    hey guys quick question, do you insure your gear separately, or is it bundled in with other insurance.

    All my gear is insured in a bundle. However, when items are damaged or lost they get individually replaced...if that makes any sense?

    My gear is covered under home and contents, but if anything happens to the cameras while I'm at a gig. The insurance company will replace it no questions asked. My insurance company usually replace the item rather than sending out a blank cheque.

    Most insurance companies are pretty good with cameras. A good tip is to add an extra $100 - $500 to cameras or lens to equal out the lost you'll make (if any) down the track with replacements or repairs. This works quite well when you get the camera or lens below cost and quote the full retail price. Even if you bought the thing second hand you'll still get a brand new replacement. You will have to pay a slight excess of a dollar or two, but whats a few bucks for piece of mind.

    Check out one of the pieces I've been working on for uni. I had to incorporate 3 foreign images into a landscape and manipulate them to fit into the scene. Let me know what you think.

    I've often thought about this, actually. We're adding some 7" HD field monitors to our rigs soon which is chewing up the cash a bit, but they have a lot of anti-glare/sun properties so it may make this thing redundant.

    It looks like a bit of wank but it may come in handy at festivals and if you do a lot of nature photography. You could probably make your own. Just cut out an eye piece from a thick, hollow piece of plastic and place it over the LCD screen.

    Here are my first attempts at real estate photography. You can check out the rest on my website. http://www.anwarrizk.com/photography/2012/01/21/real-estate-photography/

    This is a great idea. I might actually make one myself.

    Nice work, Mick.

    Some really nice shots in here, even for Canon users :D

    I use a Nikon D90, with a 12-24mm, 28-80mm, 70-300mm and a 50mm prime.

    Here are a couple of mine, even dredged up some old ones I took of Dungeon -
