Sorry I haven't been around in a while, just been really busy! But I got a new camera lens, I'll post some pics from it soon. So here we go with my confusing dilemma:
Well, I'm bored, had nothing to do this weekend, and haven't been to the zoo in forever, so tomorrow I'm off to the local zoo. I just don't know what gear to bring! I have a Canon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6, Canon 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III, Canon 50mm f/1.8 and Canon 100mm f/2.8 macro. I know I won't be taking the 50mm. I know I will be taking the 75-300mm and although it's regarded as the worst lens Canon makes, hopefully it will serve me well for what I need it for. I think I want to take the 100mm macro for it's overall sharpness, macro capabilities, and large aperture. I think it will come in handy in places/situations where the 200-300mm range isn't needed, and since the lens is so sharp I can always crop the pic to provide extra "zoom." Now comes the dilemma. I can fit one more lens in my case, or my 430EX II flash. I'm not sure if I should take the 18-55 for wide angle landscape and scenery shots (the zoo always has great scenery) or the flash (not sure if I'd need one, but I've never done photography at the zoo) or neither, to lighten the load, since I'll have to carry around all day. I'm also not sure if I should leave the 100mm since it is so heavy and adds so much of a load and I already would have the 100mm covered by the 75-300mm. Sorry if I confused anyone but I'd love some help on this, and any other zoo photography tips. I can't wait to go there, hopefully I can get a pic of the hawk-head they have there I will post the pics as soon as I get them edited and uploaded.
What to pack for the zoo?
