I want to get into photography and i figured I should start off with a film slr. any suggestions of good entry level slr's? and whats the developing process for slr cameras? thanks
who here uses a nikon 50mm f/1.8 lens
Thanks, i had a quick look through, it seems sigmas have problems with lens flares ! Grr.
Also, does anyone go out to photograph whilst its raining or do you hide away at home? lol.
I say this because there doesnt seem to be a day when it isnt raining in england but i still want to go out to take photographs.
Im not talking heavy rain (i dare go out if its raining alot) but a light shower, i normally bring a micro-fiber towel with me to wipe it down now and then.
Anyone have any tips?
i want some advice on Nikon lenses...
i have a 18-135 lens with auto focus
i want something for very small but detailed closeups, should i get a macro lens next?
what range would be good for vivid detailed closeups thanks
oh and btw i have a Nikon D40
Cheers poo on the info.
Is that any good? Im willing to spend more but im not at that stage were i can fully understand how to compare lens.
Its a 18-200mm, wide angle. I thought the price looked good for what it is, correct me if im wrong.
What camera are you shooting with if you don't mind me asking ? If you're shooting with nikon then i'd recommend getting the nikkor 18-200mm VR instead of that. It'd be faster at the 200mm range and it's just an overall better build.
But the lens you asked about wouldn't be considered a wide angle, it'd be considered a telephoto lens. It actually wouldn't be wide at all unless you shot at 18mm all the time, and it still wouldn't be too wide at that range.
Oh ok thanks, i shoot with a canon 400D.
I wanna get as much advice as possible as the last time i went into jessops they just seemed to eager to sell the higher priced product rather than help me with what i need.
I was a beginner back in 2006 and used a 5.1 Fuji Finepix for 2 years. Just ask the store clerk if it has any known limitations, or glitches... or irritating features.... before you buy it. Tell them exactly what situations you can anticipate yourself using it in the most, and they'll have to give you an honest opinion whether it can handle that. I never used the particular Nikon you mentioned, but I have a Nikon DSLR now.... and I love it. I'm assuming they make their P&S cameras as convenient and well-built as their SLR's.
Go for it. Another reason I recommend you get it... is that it will make for a great back-up camera, or grab-and-go camera whenever you decide to upgrade. Good luck
I have a EOS Digital Rebel, its a beginner camera for the main part and would like to upgrade, what would you suggest. Something in the 500 - 700 dollar range with alot of features, not the D40 though because I'de like the camera to have the motorized lens not the lens itself. Also exposure bracketing would be a plus.
