comment Canon 24-105 lens a good choice for Canon 1000D?
+1 for recommending the EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM (though it is not officially an L but it acts like it!). A superb choice if staying in the APS-C realm with the 7D. I used that lens with both Canon 350D and 7D, and it was a real star. Outstanding image quality, large aperture, and image stabilisation.

comment Check free space on Nikon DSLR
This is kind of frustrating - I totally understand the OP's question and why he would want to know. I check mine too! However on my Canon I can see this by going to the Format Card menu option (but not formatting it obviously) - but the screen before it formats shows a bar showing how full the card is from 0-100%. Looked in the Nikon D5100 manual online and can't find any equivalent.

comment How to explain to your client that a camera flash does no harm to infant?
Agreed. I have done baby shoots in the past, and always try to diffuse the light from a flash, either with softbox, or bounce. Although it may be safe, even I would not wish to point a powerful flash gun directly at such young, tiny eyes... Besides, a nice even light is better than direct brightness of a flash pointed directly at the subject (no matter what it is) anyway... :)

comment How long batteries last with 5DMIII off?
agreed. The LP-E6's last forever and having two of them in a grip like that should definitely last darn near indefinitely as you say.

I would have said months in my comment too except that I've never left it that long without using it -- lol! :)

comment How long batteries last with 5DMIII off?
Should last a hell of a lot longer than that! I have the 5DMIII with genuine batteries and genuine grip, and I can leave it weeks and when I turn it on they are exactly the same as they were (not that I've really checked properly)...
