so is this legit/ a good price?

cgi.ebay.com/Canon-EOS-Rebel-T3i-600D-18-0-MP-Digital-SLR-Camera-/190561870264?pt=Digital_Cameras&hash=item2c5e5f61b8

and how come this comes with so much more?

cgi.ebay.com/Canon-EOS-Rebel-T3-1100D-SLR-w-75-300mm-Lens-III-Kit-/390324718529#vi-content

thanks



yo man pay attention, youre close to getting fucked in the butt.
the first one is an okay deal, you'll definitely be able to find better deals for a t2i/t3i on craigslist depending on your area.

the second listing is for A T3 not a t3i, huge difference, if you don't know then look it up.

if you're considering a t3i, i would also look into the t2i, the only differences mainly being that the t3i has a swively screen which can come in handy, but may not be worth the price for you.

haha wasn't gonna buy, thanks for the feedback i'll hold back before i buy. might skip the t3i and just grab a t2i since the difference is just the swivel screen.

i think the t3i also has some sort of digital zoom, so essentially any lens you have turns into a zoom lens. this can be cool i guess, but it'd be shaky as fuck.

Has anyone ever shot with Sony/Minolta before? Has anyone tried the Minolta "Mini Beercan" 35-70F4?

I wanna buy a new camera tough, still cannot decide whether it is gonna be a DSLR or a bridge.
Nikon D7000 or a D90.

I am mainly using this camera for street photography or some potraits. and shooting food of course haha.
I have a Nikon D5000 with a 18-105mm and 50mm 1.8 (no AF, cannot use it) atm, but these af-lenses are so expensive.

edit> or how about a leica dlux5?

Well I would suggest getting a D7000 since the D90 will not be much of an upgrade from your D5000. The only different is you will have a built in AF motor on the D90. The D7000 is pretty much an upgrade of the D90 and you will have the upgraded sensor and 1080p video.

dunno if there's any point in upgrading from a D90 to a D7000 - what specs do you want that the D7000 offers that the D90 doesn't?

for street shots - get a micro four thirds camera or a x100 - smaller cameras are more discreet and can get some dope candid street shots

Canon head here. I'm looking for an all-purpose, walk-around lens that's sharp. The kit lens isn't doing it for me, and I already have the Nifty-Fifty, which is a hassle taking pictures with 'cause you have to take like 20 backwards paces just to take a decent group shot.

I don't care if it's prime or zoom, although I'd prefer a zoom lens, just 'cause it has a very diverse focal range.

^ i shot with sony/minolta before (my first DSLR).

their prime lenses are nice for beginners/some hobbyists (i had the 50mm f/1.7, which was what got me into portrait photography). but any other 'cheap' lens with sony cameras i've had bad experiences with, which was why i ended up switching to canon.

anyways, here's a link of users with the 50mm i had:

i bought mine used for around $100 back when i was in high school (a little over three years ago), not sure how much they go for used now.

the x100 is still expensive. can you recommend a good alternative?

^ i never had or used a micro 4/3 camera, but i think the best ones are the panasonic GF-series, or the olympus pen e-p series.

i think the newest models currently are the GF3, and the E-P3.

but if you save up for a X100, its honestly the best camera i've ever owned. i use mine more than my dslr.

Has anyone printed any photos to hang in a room? I was thinking about printing some for my room and my dorm but have no experience with this. I was thinking something about the size of shanks actual picture (not pink) but I don't know the size. Would this size look good in a dorm?


Also I would be printing with bayphoto.com because I've read some good reviews about them. Does anyone have any experience with them?

i wouldnt even consider a GF3 - smaller camera, more touchscreen, less buttons, basically same internals as the GF2
looks ugly too, imo

the best m4/3 at the moment is the E-P3, but with the 12mm f2 lens, it costs more than the X100...

Dang, thanks a lot, man! Good stuff.

I'm leaning towards copping the Sigma 18-50 f/2.8, just 'cause it's relatively cheap and I've heard some pretty positive reviews. I'll check out the other lenses, though.

Ok, 24-70 2.8L, or 35mm 1.4L?

I was going to get the zoom lens, but I am thinking the prime will be better and since I am using a crop frame (not full), it will be equivalent to 57mm which isn't bad. I will also be switching to a FF body hopefully when the Mark III comes out. Or is there another lens I should be looking at?

I'd get the 24-70 for all rounder,but thats just me. Try em out in a camera store near you before purchasing,or rent the lenses and try em out for like a few days.

thanks, I am thinking I will wind up going with the 24-70. 35 was just a thought as I am trying to keep my horizons open on what I want, and what I will be happy with. I don't know if I can try it out though anywhere unless anyone knows a place on LI that has a camera shop that you are allowed to try lenses.

35 1.8 is a good choice. I'm not much of a prime guy, but it's extremely worth it's value.

yeah, i'd say 35L if you were using full-frame for sure. i have the 24-70L, and it's great (even though i use my primes over it mostly
