    Does anyone have any good ideas for make-shift raincoats for cameras? The forecast for Saturday is rain. It's that time of year.

      I've successfully used rain sleeves photographing Yosemite Falls, you can get them at Amazon

    It looks like the weather is going to be less than cooperative. So, I think I'm going to bow out and wait for a day with better conditions.

      I'm thinking the same thing!!! would be better to go on a beautiful day instead of fighting the elements..

    Is anyone driving from the Sacramento area? I'd love to carpool or rideshare if possible.

      Hi Steve, Francis and Alessandra - I'm in Folsom - would love to carpool as well. I'm happy to drive or share in the cost with you.

    Can we bring tripods into the zoo?

    November 11, 2012

    • Steve F.

      If it's rainy, many of the animals will "hunker-down" and be less active. What we want is cool, clear weather for the best activity.

      The weather report five days out says says it will be cloudy and breezy, with rain on Friday and Sunday

    Matt: What kind of camera and lenses will you be using?

      I have a Canon 40D with a[masked] lense. (Just the one lense)

      November 1, 2012

    • Steve F.

      I'll be using my Canon 1D MK IV because of it's higher burst rate (12 fps) along with a[masked] IS lens. It;s a great, fast, sharp combination. I'll also pack a[masked] for the larger, closer animals.

    I've been to the zoo you don't really that much of a zoom lens for the zoo the apes you would need one for but mostly other animals are close up even the hippopotamus

  • Jacalyn E.

    I don't have a really great zoom yet, so I will be working with a[masked] and a micro, just in case. Nikon D7000.
