    I don't find a lot of use for IS. IS doesn't do anything for moving subjects, unless you're talking about "Panning". I don't use IS for anything.

    Sorry the glass is so exspensive. It's worth it in the long run though.

    I'll find that setting for ya.

    Here is how to activate the "blinking Highlights" function.

    It looks like you just press the "Disp" button a few times to cycle through the modes.

    What you'll want to do is "expose for the highlights". What that means is if you see flashing areas on your pic after you take it, you want to under expose your shot with your exposure compensation, or just dial down the shutter speed. Remeber too, that if shooting things that are white, like snow, you have to overexpose a little, when shooting dark things, you have to underexpose otherwise your camera will try to make things gray.

    If you have questions, I'm here.

    Awesome, I will do it in the am, and check out that forum as well....Hmmm I am not sure what to do about the lenses now.....I tried that lens before actually, only it might have been 70-300 but it was not IS and it went back minutes later. Its hard if you are trying to use the zoom aspect of it to say catch a pretty bird in a tree, my hands are too shaky I guess :(

    How goes the lens hunt?

    Well, I got the 70-200 f/4l. I have moved towards portraiture, I need a shorter lens than my 50mm, but everyone is yelling at me about distortion if I go shorter, but I have a crop body I need FF next year!

    I have NO clue about lights, I am trying to learn, was thinking of the Genesis 400s, but I need portability in case I do a series outside.

    I think most pros use about the 85mm range for portrature. I can't help you with lighting. I know nothing about studio lighting.
