I've been a dedicated Sony shooter for awhile now. I came across a deal for a Nikon D90 and in a way it benefits me since my cousins and friends are Nikon shooters too. Right now, I have a Sony A560 with a couple of lenses, but Im thinking of selling it and switching over to Nikon. Would that be a downgrade? Originally, I was saving up for a D7000, but the D90 offer is something I wouldn't want to pass up. What do you guys think? Stay with the Sony and save up for the D7000 or switch to the D90?


if you plan on getting serious about photography (even as a serious hobbyist) i would make the switch to nikon (even with the D90).

but here's a comparison chart: http://snapsort.com/compare/Nikon_D90-vs-Sony_Alpha_DSLR-A560

It looks beautiful that's for sure. I've made up my mind, and will be picking on up.

Got a question though how important are filters?


Actually filters if anything downgrade quality. If you have a lens hood that is pretty good protection, I was reading up on a photo forums that a bunch of pros don't use filters. They only recommend it that you have one in case you are shooting somewhere where it is sandy and something can damage your lens. After reading that I stopped using my filter. Also think of it this way if you drop a rock on the filter it will break, then if you feel the underside of it you will notice if that happened to the filter on the lens it could totally mess up the lens.

If that came out today, I'd get it. I've been eyeing the x100 but it's just too much tongueface

I always thought that having a filter on would degrade the quality of the image.. I guess I'll just leave the filter on, and see what I'll do in the end. Good looks either way lax

So I'm starting to get into Film photography and I decided to go with the Canon Ae-1, but I was wondering if there is a big difference between the Ae-1 and the Ae-1 program besides the Program option of course. Is it worth spending the extra money on getting the program rather than the other? Also, is the program opinion really useful at all?

While there's life there is hope, only the dead have none.

it's not really useful especially if you're getting into photography, it's better to learn how to use only your manual setting.

Well I decided to buy a group kit which includes a Canon AE-1 program, canon FD 50mm 1.4 and a tokina szx 70-210 lens (the one with the red ring which I heard was a good lens) all for 130.. Did I get a good deal?

While there's life there is hope, only the dead have none.

Looking to get started in film photography. I currently shoot with a D90, but looking to get a cheap Nikon film camera to use with my 50 1.8. Suggestions?

I shoot a D90 then I wanted to get into film. Found a good deal for an FE2 with a 1.8 and I love this camera.

So i was planning on buying a t3i, but now im thinking about getting a t2i body and a 50mm 1.8 lens for about $730 or d5100 + kit lens for 760? thoughts?

I've been looking on eBay and I guess I've settled on the Nikon EM or FG-20 for a film SLR. Anyone have experience with either?
August 30, 2011 @ 18:58:47
So I am starting a photography class and I already have a T2i but never really had time to go shoot. But for this class for now we have to use film which I'm happy because a lot of people told me to learn on film. Now I just need a film camera. Which do you suggest for a beginner?

Looking for a zoom lens cause all I have is the 18-55 and 50mm lens.
What's the best one for $300 or less.
Trying to get enough zoom for my nephew's football games.

This is with 50mm cropped.



Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III Telephoto Zoom Lens - $115

Is this any good? There's no IS and I can probably use a tripod.

Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4.0-5.6 IS Telephoto Zoom - $140

Giving up 50mm for IS?
September 05, 2011 @ 21:30:00
Yeah ? is it worth the extra money ?


Yes.

75-300MM is one of the worst canon class you can get both IS and non IS. 55-250 all the way.

i had the 75-300mm when i first started out in photography, and i agree— it is one of the worst canon lenses ever. luckily i bought it used, and sold it the next day i got it in.

if you're gonna get a telephoto lens (with a long focal length), IS is a must (unless you plan on using your tripod at ALL times).
