    Stickers! Yay!

    Or... Maybe not :cool:

    Haven't ordered anything yet. Not 100% sure what it will be, but I think @Steakface has the sensible, practical idea... better than the one I started out with. :D

    The straight-man guy and him make a really good team!

    I'm sure that would have been just perfect for me... but availability/cost in India threw a spanner in the works. I didn't think smaller would work, so I have ordered the bigger one in the same range. I think it will be too big... but the crazy-Indian-pricing thing that made the others too expensive somehow made the 250 quite cheap. So not much lost if it doesn't work out. A bag... can't not work for something!

    Thanks for your help

    Are you taking a tripod? If so then don't bother going wider & try to shoot panoramas instead. 3 frames on a 28mm (equiv.) will be plenty. Just a thought.

    Yep, tripod and a new Arca head will be used (for the first time really). In all honesty I should probably spend more time shooting with the lenses I already have instead of being so into the gear. I've really only spent any time with my 35mm F/2. I've just been seeing decent deals on Fuji lenses and been picking them up.

    Thomas Heaton breaks it down better than I could but this is pretty much my favourite method. I only have two lenses & no money so using the ones I do have to their max is crucial. Check out this video...
