There's been rumours of a D400 to replace the 300s i've heard. Not sure if they are totally accurate though.

Knowing Nikon, it's probably a D7000 with better AF and weatherproofing.

Well I didn't end up getting the camera because he sold it earlier this morning. However, I did end up just getting a Panasonic Lumix G2 and I'll be using my Minolta MD 50F1.7 and 135F3.5 on it. This is pretty much going to be my everyday camera for street photography. I got a pretty good deal on it being that it's brand new. It should suite my shooting needs for awhile until I save up enough for a D300s or D7000.

Anyone have experience with adapting other lenses to different camera bodies?

as of now, i think those two are the best on the market for instant film. just pay attention to which one you get. The 300 creates business size photos while the 210 creates a wide format photo.


right on, i'll probably go for the 210 then. thanks for the info man, i appreciate it

Won't autofocus with the D5100, you need to get the 200$ AF-S version.
Unless you like manual focus.

That's a really common problem, you shoot canon right?

Do the upgrade, the 1.4 can be sniped on craigslist for $300 or you can order a Canon refurbished lens for $320~340. it's 3x the price of a 1.8, but infinitely better. Construction is solid and reliable, and the lens is pretty sharp wide open. However the build is a rather old design, you can play the Sigma lottery and try to get a good reliable copy of the Sigma 50 1.4. It is sharper from 1.4-2.5, but most are lemons and have horrible back/front focus issues. Getting an accurate copy of those and the pictures are identical to the Canon L series.

if you're not seeking any of the features that dslr's offers, you should just stick to point and shoots, it'll save you from breaking the bank and the initial complications that come with a DSLR. testing out a bunch from a local electronics store is the best way to get your answer. i am familiar with the Canon G-Series though, they are compact point and shoots that have similiar qualites and controls of a DSLR. The G-Series are definitely not a turn in the wrong direction for you.

there could be others that will perform better for you, but what I am familiar with, the Canon G-series are my favorite PnS cameras

Saw this Sigma 30mm review the other day might help.

Paper roll background try Camera supplies or ebay, d.i.y
approach try an art shop or printing firm google might be
more help for something you area.

I'm leaning more towards the 60D gonna try test one out
next week looking at body only with Canon 35mm F2 or
50mm F1.8.

PnS camera have come a long way from what they use to be. If the G-series isn't in your budget or you just want to save some money, anything from the Canon Powershot line, the Nikon CoolPix, or even the Sony Cyber-shot line up will work perfectly fine for fit pictures. Just make sure you do a little post editing to get the look you want.

50 is definitely on the longer end. I have a sigma 30 1.4 and it's been my main lens for everything. excellent lens.

If it helps I have a 50 1.2L. I honestly think that this is one of the best lengths for portraits, but I find myself needing a wider angle sometimes. I think if you were to get one of the two get the 50 1.4. The 30 1.4 from sigma is not of the best lenses, but the closest you can get to a true 50mm on a crop. The 50 1.4 though is SHARP and even though it is a longer focal length if you don't mind moving a little farther away from your subject you will find this lens to your liking. But If you can try them out do so!

Edit: From seeing pictures of both lenses the 50 1.4 is WAY sharper if that's a factor.

thanks for the feedback guys, i'm gonna do a little more reading up on both lenses, i'm really leaning toward the 30mm due to the focal length. Although the 50mm 1.4 is cheaper (but not by that much) .

I don't believe the 50 is WAY sharper than the 30, though every lens is different regardless the same make. Another thing to worry about with the 50 1.4 is that it uses Canon's old clutch focus motorsystem. Tends to break down after awhile.

OK just wondering if there is a reason why I shouldn't get a 7D? I would get the 5D MK II but I would rather wait till the 5D MK III comes out. I'm upgrading from a t3i, so just wondering if I shouldn't do it for any reason.

Rokinon 8mm Fisheye is good. No manual focus, but at that mm you won't be focusing much. $290, i've seen used on CL and EBAY for $250. Check you youtube for sample video.

Muslim backdrops? try amazon / CL. A cheap kit runs you $150ish because you need a frame to prop it up
