T3's are just fine for class. Hell, check craigslist and see if you can score anything for cheaper. It's just for class, so i wouldn't splurge.

And if I want to use it afterwards as a hobby? Basically, for around that price is there anything old (or new) that is worth looking in to?

If you care about video then I'd go with the t3. It works perfectly fine if you want to pursue photo as a hobby. I'd also look into a 40D-60D those cameras are more on the serious side, and have more durable bodies.

But The t3 is cheaper as it comes with a kit for around ~$530. The 40D body+battery+charger can be sniped on craigslist/ebay for around ~$440 on craigs/ebay.

Thanks for the input. I'll look into the 40D and see what's up.

Canon EOS C300

Saw this too on the Vimeo home page and had a discussion about it today in one of my film classes. It's great to see Canon push towards more into the video realm now. Insane how high you can push the ISO on it. Also cool that it'll have interchangeable lenses with all the DSLRs. Can't wait to try it out.

ANVT really depends on your budget, I'd go with either the 600D/T3i or 60D
the C300 seems dope.

anyone know what causes those vertical lines? i'm trying to figure out if it's from my camera or from walgreens developing. they're present on the negative

your film was probably loaded in improperly. i usually see this when the film isn't seated tight enough, which causes an uneven exposure.

Quick question about a night shoot.

I just bought a tripod because I've been wanting to go out and shoot some long exposure night shots. Unfortunately the only lenses in my arsenal at the moment are my 50mm 1.8 and the kit lens (18-55mm) that came with my Nikon D80. Ideally I would like to have a wider angle lens at my disposal, but I think I can make these work.

Can anyone post up some links to great shots of night buildings or give me advice on composition? In the end I'd like to print in a large format matte poster size, around 27x40". It will be the first time I will be doing this also. What kind of prices have you guys been quoted for something like this? Should I take my images to print shop, or should I check online? It would be really nice to have proofs made first because I can imagine formats of this size can get expensive.

wtf... happened to the title? lol.



December 16, 2011 @ 01:17:32
^nice, was that recent pic in the daily thread with that lens?
December 16, 2011 @ 02:41:25
Actually no haha. It was taken with a lens that just comes with the kit (ie. 18-55). Just gotta know how to get the bokeh.

Do anybody know if cvs lets you scan a picture on to a flash drive?

Anybody have an opinion on the Sigma 18-50 f/2.8-4.5 for Canon?

Need a zoom lens (got my T2i with just a Nifty Fifty), and was wondering what you guys thought of that Sigma.

For $199 it's better than the kit lens. I'd buy it.

Thinking about dumping my Canon XT and getting a Fujifilm X10. Anyone shoot with the X10?
December 26, 2011 @ 08:02:47
Got a Lumix GF3 as a Christmas present. I know nothing about photography. Anyone have this? Is it good or should I dump it. I'm reading mixed reviews online.
December 29, 2011 @ 13:03:29
Looking to replace my kit lens from the t2i with a wide angle or something that is able to take wider shots for indoors, etc. I find myself not having much use of my nifty fifty indoors and the kit lens low lighting sucks. 2 posts before me mentions a Sigma 18-50, is that a pretty good lens for what i want? I don't wanna spend a lot because i know a lot of wide angle lens are pricey but i really want good pictures like my 50mm but with a wider angle.
December 29, 2011 @ 14:10:18
The sigma 18-50 would be pointless if you wanted to keep your kit lens as the kit lens covers more ground with the focal length. Howbout a sigma 30mm? Most lenses are going to be $300+ especially for wider angle lenses. Another option would be the canon 10-22 but that is really pricey. If you are taking a lot of photos indoors I would recommend a fast prime then. The 20mm f/2.8 could also be an option?


December 29, 2011 @ 23:54:36
I was gonna get rid of my kit lens if the sigma 18-50 is better for indoors, especially with low lighting. But the price is main problem, don't wanna spend that much for the lens, but i might save up for it, prime would be better in the end anyways. Thanks for your help.

I just got a canon t2i and I'm looking for a fisheye lens does anyone have any recommendations?

Rokinon 8mm


January 06, 2012 @ 23:41:29
good lens to get for d40?
January 27, 2012 @ 20:31:42
Whats a very cheap macro lens good for a canon?
February 01, 2012 @ 07:29:35
Anyone have an opinion on this Rokinon 8mm Fisheye Lens? im kinda interested in buying it

February 01, 2012 @ 20:41:42
FWIW it's a great lens. If I were you and I needed a fisheye (or just to fuck around with) I would recommend getting it. Pretty fun lens to mess around on.


February 08, 2012 @ 19:45:46

Wow.. I am now considering switching to Nikon over this camera if it goes to the $2500 price point.




February 28, 2012 @ 00:23:19
if my camera takes like 2 secs to get in focus, and is bad in low light. will a new lens make the AF better?
