Sounds like it was hard to capitalize on that storm anywhere, best turns were right when it started falling.
Oh just you wait for my TR from April Fools
Yeah but it heated up fast and best turns were definitely on Saturday night or early Sunday morning. Still ... I think our group capitalized in a lower angled protected zone. It sounds like the further north, the more wind-affected the snow, because further south in N-facing trees was stable deep and blower. Wrangling in the final images now.
Wasatch, it's an "old" Canon 40D ... 24-70mm 2.8L lens
Yo Brooks, that is a GREAT setup man and you do not need to upgrade to a 7D unless you want smarter autofocus, more megapixels, and 8 frames per second. None of which you need for trip reports!!! I still use my Rebel XSi if I don't want to carry the 7D weight - not smart, fast, or great, but it works well enough.
You should do three things: i) get out with me or bcd (or all of the above!) sometime we can nerd out on Canon settings ii) take a one-day software processing workshop/class to learn to get the most out of RAW files iii) GET A BETTER HOST THAN IMAGESHACK!
Running 40D images on imageshack is like putting a Corrola transmission on a Porsche engine. The compression and color quality goes to poop. Unfortunately, there aren't that many free hosting sites that are good. Facebook has gotten way, way better, and Picassa is still only mildly better than imageshack. I use Flickr, but it's not free if you want to host more than 200 images at a time. Flickr's resizing and compression is superior to any of the other free services.
