    Very cool! I'm down. Don't know what I'll bring though... I'll let it develop and see what stands out?

    Thanks!

    Hasn't died? With all that extra light it should have gained three feet or more!

    I'll be there with my two children. I think I'll bring a big box of dim-sum this time. Oh, and my lights, too!

    Can somebody with a DEFT EDC please bring one in....

    It would be nice to see how it does against the Ahorton P60 Aspheric builds by PCC.

    220 OTF w/27.5K lux vs. 40K lux and ??? OTF lumens

    Thank you,

    Hi Jose, I can't promise that I can make it, but if everything works out, then I'll bring my DEFT-EDC C2 (the actual one posted on Saablusters site)

    Awesome, you saved me $200 dollars. Well, there is alot of disbelief in what the DEFT EDC can actually deliver. So much, that I am about to purchase it on my own now just to be able to do some beamshots and get others at the get togethers opinion on what they think. PCC would have to have the contender finished by then of course, which I think is a pretty much done deal from his side.

    Shootout....
    27.5mm Aspheric EDC hosts vs. DEFT EDC Aspheric

    Will brute lumens just overwhelm the tight hotspot of the XP-C R4????

    I was beginning to wonder if there would be any flashaholic meet-ups this year. Count me in, and my mom will probably want to tag along as well. As for food, I will bring something... to be determined. Now I really have to find the mounting foot for the 200mm zoom lens... Craig, do you have a long zoom for the 100 meter beamshots? Maybe I can get by with just ultra-wide and medium lenses.

    I just received my first zebralight, the SC51 high-CRI flood. I like it very much indeed, the tint is not too warm and the interface for changing brightness is great. Also got a pair of Malkoff M61 high-CRI drop-ins and camo MD2 hosts recently. The tint is pretty warm, but it makes my flower garden look beautiful (lots of browns, reds, pinks, purples, and greens.)

    I had to get rid of the 70-200 a while back. I've only got super wide!

    Ok, I'll bring the full complement of camera stuff. I can still use the long lens without the correct mount, just a little less steady. And I have a new camera body, Nikon D7000.

    I have posted a link to this thread from the previous get-together thread, so there will soon be a lot more foodies/flashaholics posting here.

    With Dittmer's temporarily out of business (relocating after a fire), I can't get my standard Santa Maria marinated tri-tip. I'll have to think of something else...

    It's a little far out for my schedule but I'll make it if I can! That should be good motivation to bring something "new"

    hope to see you there.

    I found the mounting foot for my 70-200, YAY! Now it's attached. Next time I will have to lose the barbell - I mean LENS - along with it.

    ooh! I've been meaning to rent a teleconverter for that lens... turn it into a 350mm F/4.0 for wildlife photos. Can you bring the teleconverter along for me to play with? Might buy one if the image quality doesn't suffer.
