See my previous post here: LINK

Also check out the Peleng 8mm. Be aware it's a manual lens and needs an EOS adapter.

^That's the lens. Here are some pics from flickr with that lens and XTi/400D. I think the first 4 are the only ones that aren't photoshoped: LINK

Don't really know of any 2nd hand sites.. GOOGLE!

For those of you that might own a nikon d50 or d80, by any chance, do you guys know if the card chamber door is the same as the d40? Mine broke from the corner, and krazy glue just doesn't work on that type of plastic :[

Elvis: Basically the flash went off right when he hit the shutter release effectively freezing the subjects. However, since it was a 1/2" exposure he had time to move the camera a bit which causes the light blur.

Nightclub photogs love that shit...it can look cool but it gets a bit overused sometimes.

Kickrocks: I wouldnt think so. The camera bodies are much much different in size/shape (and the D50 doesnt even use the same type of card). Nikon service is really good, have you called them? Might be able to just warranty it...

Thanks man..
p.s. my homie has a d50 and it takes SD as well..a plus on the d40, though, is that it takes SDHC too.
..should just compare it with his, lol :X

Yea you are right I was thinking the D70 (CF)...

My friend was able to get a LCD screen warrantied through Nikon cuz it was chipped/scratched (obviously wear and tear, but they took care of it anyway). I would think if that would fly your card door issue would be no problem?

yeah, I'm sure they'll take care of it...but the thing is that I'm going to Mexico in about a week, and I'm also sure that it would take longer than that for my cam. to get to them...if not that, just the whole process anyways.

..sooo...I'll just wait :[

Eww that sucks. Stuff like this always happens when you are ready to take a trip.

Sounds like you are in need of some duct tape smile

(310)414-8107 - Nikon Parts Dept. They are in socal so maybe they could get it to you in time?

Good luck.

Hmm...I wonder if, since I have warranty, they can just send me the part?
If not, I'll just wait...it's simply a cosmetic issue and doesn't affect the camera.

Thanks a lot though!

What other lenses do you have?

It's a little wider than a "normal" lens on a crop camera. If you can get a bargain on it.. go for it.

Sigma makes an EOS mount for the 10-20. Just make sure you get the right one.

Used 5D for under $2k: LINK

Or you can get a EOS film camera of off craigslist/ebay for cheap.

Is a crop camera holding you back?

Not necessarily a lens question, just a filter question. Got bout20-30 dollars to spend so I was gonna get some cheap accessories. Ive been lookin at two combos. Hood + Polarizer or 80a filter + polarizer. Which is the smarter option?

I am pretty much set on the polarizer, just wanna know if an 80a filter is of any use for indoor shooting

it's called vignetting, can occur naturally sometimes or you adjust it in lightroom or photoshop's camera raw plugin.

My younger brother picked it up and as he picked it up it slipped (a few inches)

Im guessing just the lense is damaged?!? When i take a picture the image in the viewfinder slopes and doesnt record the image.

I felt like kicking the shit out of him but it was my fault for letting him use it in the first place, i will know better next time.

Im taking it back to the shop for a replacement in a few days as it was under warranty.

Find a camera that starts up quick with the least shutter lag. You may also consider finding one with image stabilization and good optical zoom.
