You can thank me now blushing 16 gig 30mb/s swag. 44.75$ too.


dude, don't waste your money on the class 10, i've got the class 4 ultra one that's 15 mb/s and I can take 1080p videos for days, it's never done me wrong. there's also those transcend cards that are actually pretty good as well.

I got hired to do some prom shots for a group of seniors before they head off to the prom.

I need help in terms of equipment I should take..
I have a 550D and 50mm f/1.8 lens as well as the 18-55 kit lens (which I would rather not use)

The shoot will be on location at one of the students house (which I haven't seen or will see until the day of), there are 14 of them in total, and if it rains we will have to shoot indoors.
So my question is will my 50mm be sufficient for those group shots? They also want limo shots, so should I consider renting a wider angled lens? If so, which one? I'd much rather use a prime than a standard zoom, thanks in advance.

Thinking about selling my d3000 body for either the nikon d3100 or the d5100 since i'm in need of video shooting capabilities. Should I spend the extra money on the d5100 or will the d3100 suffice?

i just went to wallmart today, and apparently they dont do it in house, you drop in in a slot and they send it out and you get them back 3-4 days later. try local drug stores like walgreens or riteaid, i know in my town those are the ones that do it.

I'd say a Canon 50mm/1.8 (better value than the 1.4) or the Sigma 30mm/1.4...

i know malaujai said to get a 50mm, and he's kind of right. you should get a solid 50mm lens, but with the crop factor on the 60d (x1.6), you should go with something like a 28mm, so you effectively have a 50mm. Otherwise that 50mm you buy will look like what an 80mm looks like on a full frame sensor from the same distance.

Any suggestions on lenses to upgrade from the standard Canon 18-55mm? Rule out: Tamron 17-50mm & 50mm f/1.8. Those are already on my hit list. Thanks.

^ Sigma 30/1.4 or 85/1.8

The 30/1.4 will be an overlap in focal length but the larger aperture justifies it IMO. The 85/1.8 is a good lens too.

it depends on what you want to do. like if you're shooting lions frolicking in the sahara, you should probably get a telephoto lens. if you're doing video or something, you should probably get a 28 or 50mm prime.

I was going to use the 50mm prime for video and the tamron for a walk around. i'd like a decent wide angle lens that's not too pricey but worth the bang for its buck. thanks!

dude if you're going for that, get the 28mm 2.8
http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/12096-USA/Canon_2505A002_Wide_Angle_EF_28mm.html

and if you feel like dropping some extra, the 28mm 1.8
http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/102851-USA/Canon_2510A003_Wide_Angle_EF_28mm.html

that 1.8 is the only lens i have, but i use it for nearly everything. check my sig, all the video on that website was shot with it. especially for doing night time stuff, having a 1.8 is heaven. 1 stop may now seem like a lot, but when you're in a dimly lit club, you saving yourself whatever noise bumping up the iso may cause. yeah it was expensive, but i've never looked back.

Those who have or used Magic Lantern before, can you tell me if it changes the layout of the screen? Or does it just only add on? I don't want anything changed apart from default/stock camera but i'd like the add on.

So my grandad is sending me his old canon 35mm cam and a bunch of old film from vietnam era....Now my question is, will the film still be usable? Like it's obviously older than me, but I still want to try anyway.

They might be too old, but just give one roll a try and see. Might come out all extra vintage hipster looking.

Figured I'd try asking anyones take on lens fungus. Recently purchased a Minolta X-570 w/ a Minolta MD 50mm f/1.4 lens. Saw that it had mild fungus but since it was fairly cheap, I decided to pick it up. Now I want to know if its reasonable to take the lens to a respectable lens cleaner/repairer , if there are any methods to for DIY, or ditch the lens and buy a new one. Im currently using the camera to see if the fungus affects the picture quality.
