so i'm debating on if i should sell my d40 for 350$, and get a d80 for 545$ and it comes with a 55-200mm lens. i'm gonna need to buy another, but i think i can last a bit with that lens. or perhaps a 20d with a Sigma 28-70 and a sigma 70-300 for 475$. any thoughts guys?

id definitely pick the 20d. the 55-200 is a lame lens imo. my friend has the vr one and its just a waste of space. its widest fstop is f4 or something razz






if you think you really do like photo get the 40d . if you can afford it i dont know why you would the 450d over the 40d confused also check out the t1i. i think its supposed to have the same sensor as the 50d or something and has video capibilities

Id recommend the sony a200 for anyone new to dslr's, its well laid out and the picture quality is great, it works well in low light and feels great in your hands. It just a great platform to be creative. I started with the a200, from the off your able to capture really great quality pictures and just experiment knowing you have a reliable camera that isn't going to let you down. Now Im looking into investing in a Canon EOS D50 or a d90. Good luck!

just looked at sb600 and sb900 in camera store today, would much rather get the 600 over the 900, that 900 is just amazing how HUGE it is...

what's the difference with 600, 800, 900 and etc? is it just how big the bulb is? and should a 600 work with a d80?

also, would this be worth getting if i wanted to start out on doing photoshoots?

savage linked me this one on flicker and its a great deal, no backdrop though, www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/475575-REG/Impact__Digital_Flash_Umbrella_Mount.html

ya a 600 would be fine, i would never use that sb900 though its just too masive to carry around if your at a fair or something, and your just kinda paying for stuff youll never use, neverone i see that uses flashes only uses them at like 1/16th / 1/8th ect power. i wouldnt think you would ever need to use the full power on the 900 from that massive bulb

I can tell you exactly how those pictures were taken since I took them. The first one is just external flashes. I used 3 flashes although if I remember correctly one didn't fire. The second picture was taken with my camera on a tripod and I flash painted the car. It came out good, but I would have liked their to have been more background light.

This is what the picture looked like with out the flash painting. You just take an external flash and you point it at what you want lit up. Kind of like masking and burning but digitally. This is light flash painting... I was just testing it out.



Savage's picture is just shutter drag. I'm not really sure what you see is different about the candid shot.

regarding the discussion about the differences in nikon speedlights: the features of the sb-900 are well worth the extra money over both the 600 and the 800. i own all three and constantly benefit from the faster recycle times, tighter zoom, and better power control that the 900 offers. i think the sb-600 is a great speedlight for anyone to start working with, but eventually, you are going to start looking for options that just arent available with it. as with everything, it all depends on your desired level of freedom.

Hey, I am a beginner with photography but am quite intrigued with it. I need a camera and am looking for one. i found this on craigslist but dont know if it is a good buy.

It's a canon eos manual. It caught my eye cause of the price : 100$
Also, is this compatible with a fisheye lens?
Hope you guys can help me out

Ah *sigh*
Alright

Got some questions...

All slr/dslr camera's are digital right?

Also what is film used for? I read about film being used to slr/dslr cameras...

Does that mean they have limited shots?

^what?
a slr uses film
a "DSLR uses a memory stick, so yes unlimited pictures without price of film+development, you CANNOT use film on a dslr...

pass on that camera. they used to have that at my school and its a pile of iunno. the screen is tiny and will cause you to think all your pictures are awesome and once you upload em they will be blurry as shi.

for the difference between film and digital you should probably just google. film is just the old traditional medium of photography that not as much people use anymore. youll typically only catch artists using film these days.

Hey thanks a lot guys!

Another quick question. I found a nikon d60 selling for 290. On the listing, it says taken 3000 pictures. Does taking that many pictures affect the overall performance and condition of the camera?

Budget is $600
What are my choices?

I was actually looking at Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS. I had Canon products forever so yeah.
Since new camera's are coming out and all. I'm not sure what to get.

DSLR or Point & Shoot?

I've always had a Point & Shoot camera. Canon SX100 , Canon S2, Canon S3.
I want to get my first DSLR but not sure what to get. I'm stumped. I love how P&S cameras now have HD video feature. But I'm sure I'll get the "leave video recording to video cameras" thing.

I'll be going to Vegas in November. Hoping to pick one up before I leave. So I have now till Nov 20 to get a camera :p

I probably want to step my game up by getting an entry level DSLR. Leave the video to video cameras type thing :\

fuck I'm one confused individual.

the XS is a good choice for that budget, you could get it with the kit lens for 600-650.
many DSLR's are coming equiped with HD video but they are out of your price range.
Point and Shoots are fine for the conveniece but you dont really have the freedom that a DSLR gives you, and you out grow them real quick.
