You may want to look for camera stores just outside of Yellowstone. You may be able to rent for a shorter period of time.

I use Photo Connection in Colchester CT. Although it is a 45 minute ride I always get the help I want with competitive prices. Nice knowledgeable people willing to take the time and help. I am tired of looking at boarded up storefronts as I travel the country so I do my best to buy local.

We went to Katmai in early July and it was one of the greatest single wildlife days of my life. There were 15 brown bears all fishing at Brooks Falls simultaneously. I didn't want it to end. If the salmon are running you should have great luck there. There was even a lone wolf that made an appearance that day.

I bought this one about ten years ago and it is always on my camera. Never a problem or concern with it, it has been rock solid.

They may have a time of the year where they put their gear on sale and purchase new. Just because it is not listed now doesn't mean there will not be a sale of equipment soon. Keep an eye on the site. They sem to have positive reviews.

I remember hiking to something that had the word window view in it there. The sunset was quite spectacular. But make sure to take along some form of lighting because it gets very dark. No light pollution of any kind. Great for stargazing.

I'm at Big Bend National Park and wondering if anyone has any location suggestions for some dynamite sunrise or sunset landscape shots. Thanks, Zosos

The service we used had many planes of varying sizes. We were on a plane that sat eight.

Thank you for your reply. Do you or anyone know what the limitations are regarding the float plane. Currently there are four photographers going on the trip so far but more may join, anyway how many people are allowed on the plane and does anyone have recommendations regarding flight companies.

The cool thing about Denali is that you use their bus system. You can get dropped off anywhere along the road, do whatever hiking you want to where ever you want, and then pick up the bus again. It is a huge park so wildlife sightings are not guaranteed.
If he is going to Brooks Lodge/Katmai National Park as you indicate, he should see plenty of bear action. There were 15 bears there at the same time when we went. We also took a one day boat trip out of Seward and saw humpbacks, orcas, eagles, sea lions,
and sea otters. Do as much research as possible before going and tailor the trip to personal tastes.

He does plan to go off the road and hike in where he can. Good to know.

You don't say where you are taking the pictures from. I have found that if you find the site director ahead of the game and offer to share your pictures they quite often will let you shoot while standing on the sideline. Or speak to the head coach a few days before the game with the same results. You just have to learn to stay out of the way and be aware of action heading in your direction.

I recently retired and purchased a Nikon D500. I also bought a AF-S NIKKOR 70-200 2.8 G to use for sporting events. I had been using a Canon 20D for cross country and track meets of my kids (they've now graduated). I've only used the D500 for about a month and I thought I'd try a local high school football game (at night). Can someone give me hints on what settings have worked best for them for night football?
I've enjoyed reading the HOG stories that have been posted... and I really enjoy when someone gives a tutorial! The images that people post are truly amazing. So many skilled photographers!

As far as focus goes, I find that I have far better control when I use Back Button Focus (bbf).

I really like dealing with Photo Connection in Colchester CT. It is run by a couple that have a passion for photography and love to share their knowledge. Prices are fair and they have answered any question I have ever thrown at them.

Connecticut is a relatively small state and we have two stores that are locally owned. Camera Bar in Hartford has been there over 45 years and Milford Photo in Milford. I have dealt with Camera Bar and they are fair and knowledgeable. I have not dealt with Milford Photo as of yet.

If you are putting it on a disc you may want to considerr purchasing a Blu Ray disc burner. The pictures come out sharper on these discs. You may also want to consider putting the slideshow on a flash drive. I use Pro Show and the pictures are quite sharp, no matter the display size.

I have three different slideshow programs, Movavi Slideshow creator, ProShow Producer and Adobe Elements 10. Each time
I create a slideshow with any of the programs, the images in the slideshow are not as sharp as they are in the program. I
can copy the slideshow to vimeo on the internet and the come out nice and sharp. In contacting the program makers, they
say it is because way the programs burn the slideshow to the disk. Does anyone use a program that produces the final
burned slideshow nice and sharp?????

In southeast CT there is Photo Connection. I drive 45 minutes each way just to deal with them. Very knowledgeable, friendly and patient. http://photoconnectionoc.com/

I am 6'2" and use the Feisol CT-3471. With the camera and a battery pack I have never had to stoop and there is some extra height left over. There is no column and the unit is extremely strong and durable. Check out what Gene51 has had to say about leg thickness and size in previous posts. Good Luck.

I am looking for a tall , heavy duty tripod. I am 6'3" tall and I get tired of stopping over my tripod. I want one that is very sturdy also. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated from the great folks at the hog.

We did Chicago to Oklahoma City this year and plan to pick up from there next year. There are different eras of Rte 66, so you really should do some research online. There are multiple books available that will give you turn by turn directions also. There still exists some 85 - 90% of the original road from some era. You may find yourself on the designated route from 1926-1930 and then other roads were built for 1930-1950 and so on. It really depends on what interests you. There are abandoned businesses, refurbished businesses, and all types of touristy things to see. There were turkey tracks from 1926 still visible in the cement in southern Illinois, 1920's style gas stations, museums and unique buildings. The people along this route were wonderful and extremely helpful. Research as much as you can to get the best trip that suits your style and tastes.
