Please comment briefly on your experience with image stabilization lenses in low light, with slow shutter speeds or when doing macro work.
Do you think that the stabilization trend in lenses will lessen the use of tripods for you?
Yes, with an image stabilization lens tripods are only necessary in rare instances.

No, regardless of using image stabilization lenses, there’s simply no substitute for the image quality you get by using a tripod

Briefly comment on why you make a specific choice on memory card speed and capacity (and for the latest updates on memory card tech check our Sept. 2011 issue).
What’s your choice on memory card capacity?
I use the biggest capacity I can so I don’t run out during a shoot.

I just shoot low res JPEGs, so any reasonable card capacity will do.

I like to keep it limited to a max 8GB and carry a few cards... just in case.

Please comment briefly on your thoughts on using the cloud to store your images.
How do you feel about storing your images in the “cloud?”
It makes sense to save space and to have images whenever I want them.

I wouldn’t trust my images to be stored away from my control.

I see it as just another backup to complement my own, and it makes sense to store some images there for safekeeping.
