I don't know if this is the appropriate area for this, but I know people ask this once in a while.. What if I had $xxx to spend, what to buy? To me, it always seems there was never enough money involved to buy your "Dream Setup". So, my question is multipart and assumes that you are BUYING ALL NEW EQUIPMENT and not just adding to what you have. This is from the ground up, you currently have no equipment, what will you buy? So the questions are: 1) How much money would you need to set up your dream system. 2) What does your dream system consist of? 3) What is the reasoning behind your dream? Mine seems to change constantly but roughly consists of: 2 Canon 1DsMIII with 3 sets of extra batteries each ($17k) 3 Canon 1DMIII with 3 sets of extra batteris for each ($15k) 5 Metz 76 flash units with 2 batteries/flash unit (10 total) ($10k) 5 Photogenic 1250DR flash units ($2.5k) 5 Umbrellas ($1k) 5 Rectangular soft boxes ($1.5k) 10 PWizards ($1.7k) 1 Kick A$$ Computer ($8k) 2 30" monitors ($5k) The pricing is approximate, and I know there's more.. but can' think of any at the moment. Looking forward to the responses.
