rent your photography needs

i wrote while ago about this website that you can rent some photography equipment here in Kuwait Link , but apparently now there's another website that do the same thing Link.

i really like this new website they have a really big collection of lens and lighting i haven't tried them but it seems that this website have been around for a while, they have spacial offers and deals.

its great to have such websites that do such things because not everybody can afford those kind of lenses and lighting equipment and to think as an amateur photographer now you can experiment with lenses and lighting and enjoy the experiment without the need to buy and spend alot of money on stuff not really sure if you really need it after or if its the right thing for your project.

so if someone already tried it out please share with us your experience :)

The Upgrade... part 1 (the Digital SLR side of the story)

The next is going to be different and better :)

so i have been on this photography thing for almost 2.5 years its sure seems like yesterday, been up, down, left, right, through and under the photography world from black & white to sepia to full vibrant colors and from digital to film rolls, all i can say it is a wonderful world :)

i have met amazing people that i have learned a lot from and worked together and got great opportunity to show off my work and photo-shoots.

and i can't tell you how much i love my sweet lil camera that been there through it all, my sweet beloved Canon EOS 1000D, its a beginner level camera of 10MP nothing fancy just something to start the fire and learn the basics and fundamentals of photography something that can do it all and my bank account can handle, just encase i don't like photography i won't regret the money i spend on an expansive camera, so the best way to do is to start small and build up :)

so after 2.5 years i had make sure that i love photography and its time to upgrade the gear :)

some of my friend think 2.5 year is way to long to wait to not upgrade but for me my gears were enough, i started with:
-Canon EOS 1000D
-Canon EF 18-55mm
-Canon EF 55-250mm
-Canon EF 50mm 1.8f II
-SLIK U8000
-SLIK Lighty Pod III Monopod w/SBH-100 Ball Head

after 2.5 years its time to upgrade to this :)

-Canon EOS 60D link

 -Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM Lens link

-Canon Speedlite 580EX II Flash link

-Canon BG-E9 Battery Grip for the Canon EOS 60D link

-Sto-Fen Omni-Bounce for the Canon 580EX Flash link

-Transcend 32 GB Class 10 SDHC Flash Memory Card link

-Zeikos ZE-UV77 77mm Multi-Coated UV Filter link

so what do you think?? it sure is one hell of an upgrade isn't it :)

now all i have to do is to wait for all the shipment to arrive piece by piece to form up my new photography monster bag.

i have a lot of ideas for this upgrade but mostly is not about photography project its mostly about HD videos but i won't say no more :D

please give me a comment of what do you think of this upgrade and if you have any suggestion :)
