I've shot film before, developed and everything, still have the camera too. I've always wanted digital and i'm about to buy my first DSLR, thinking of a t2i.. should i go ahead and get that as a first or should i try something cheaper? Like a XS Rebel? I was thinking might as well go big so i don't have to deal with the upgrading, etc. later.

If you don't want to worry on upgrading, i'd get a T2i or possibly 7D.

T2i is affordable for me.. 7D is wayy too much. Maybe when i get more serious or getting paid to take some pictures then will i get something like that. But i'm gonna be going for the T2i since it seems like it's the most bang for the buck.

Sigma 30mm 1.4 is great on the d90.

As for fish eye the nikon 10.5 is nice but expensive. The manual focus 3rd party fish eyes do the job though.

all I do is sip espressos and listen to AZ -mrelllis.tumblr.com

Is the 30 1.4 tack sharp? Or should i just go and buy another 35mm 1.8?

Get the t2i. The Rebel XS is a bit out of date.

Not looking to spend much on a SD Card but is 8GB Enough? I'm gonna be buying a SanDisk 8GB Class 10. Was wondering if i should do 16GB For about $60.. price is a little steep.

Depends what camera but 8 Gig should be enough unless you plan on shooting hour long HD clips.

It's for a T2i, i don't think i'll be planning to shoot hour long videos maybe more of small clips here and there to put it together. Probably 30 minutes worth. Thanks for your link, i might consider. I just don't want to buy a 16GB and end up never using over 8GB, it seems wasteful to me. Thanks for your link, i might consider.

Well it's better to have more storage than less right? I rather get a 16 gig and never worry about running out of space. I've filled out my 8 gig in a day of shooting before on my d7000. But then again, i shoot raw + fine jpeg.

Also, try to consider like a 10 min video in 1080p is already 1-1.5 gigs.

Get two 8 gb's. Sucks to have everything on a 16gb card and then lose it/break it...

I'm looking at this bag at the moment. It's slim and can fit all my stuff, so i'm considering it.

any ideas about the nikon 35-70mm f/2.8?


I currently own the 35-70 f/2.8D and its amazing. It is a push pull zoom but does have a close focus feature at 35mm. It tends to flare a bit when directly in the sun but optically it is amazing. Stopped down to f/4-5.6 its tack sharp. At f/2.8 its pretty sharp but soft on some corners. Its made of all metal and its pretty small. You probably want to get a hood with it like the 70-300mm hood I think its the HB-3.

That's a good idea, i'll consider that.. Since 16 GB and two 8GB will end up the same price anyways.

Opteka 6.5mm fish eye.

Its manual focus and wont meter on a d90 but it does the job. All the fish eye shots in my flickr were taken with it.

Yup it will.

Just go into Non CPU lens data and you can select the max aperture.

So you can shoot in Apeture priority.
