January 30, 2008 @ 12:06:18
XTi or D70s?
ive always wondered, i did a little research, but its never really the same unless u own it, which one is better? XTi or the D70s?

You're going to most likely get biased opinions if you compare brand to brand.

The D70 is a bit outdated i think, but you need to let us know what you're looking for in a camera and what your needs are.

You've already got an XT.. so there's no real need to buy an XTi kit. Pick up the body only for $514 at BuyDig. A big jump is to go for the XSi. You can pre-order the body only at Amazon for $800.

Might as well stick to Canon's if you're comfortable with the menu/button layout and have EF/EF-S lenses. The layout is pretty much standard throughout their line-up except the prosumer line has a dial instead of directional menu buttons.

Are you going to flip your XT for money towards the new cam?

don't got an XT, its a 10D, the first DSLR I think, 6.3 MP. How is the Canon 40D? I can get the Body for 500, not sure bout the lens.

40D for $500? Scam? That's a nice price. PM the link blushing

craigslist usually has sellers giving nice deals for cams.

they have a d80 with lens for 570.

To anyone who can help me.

I need to get a point n shoot, a good one at that.
Will mainly be used to record videos and the odd photo.

After a good quality fairly price camera(will spend $250)

February 01, 2008 @ 16:28:59
Check out the Canon Powershot A series.. the 560 and 750 are nice.
February 04, 2008 @ 19:27:58
hey, i'm thinking of getting my first slr and i've seen a yashica tl and a zenit 122 for 80 each, the zenit has a 50mm lens

do you guys think it's a good buy? and are these slr's good for a begginner?

im very noob when it comes to this stuff so excuse any mistakes and if there are anyother slr's you can think of that go for under 100 used please let me know, thanks blushing blushing

so im using a Nikon 35 mm SLR for my photostoryboarding class..

my assignment is to do 24 shots of someone in different varieties...

i was wondering whats the best shutter speed/ f-stop to use when taking a pic indoors with artifical lighting?


February 05, 2008 @ 18:24:55
Canon EOS 400D
my dad works for canon and brings plenty of cameras home...

so one of them was the 400D...

question...whats a good lense to buy for standard point and shoot and also some fish-eye and wide angle lenses??
February 05, 2008 @ 19:35:14
What's your budget?

Canon 50mm 1.8 is nice for walking around. I got the 17-55 IS to replace the kit lens. 10-22mm is nice if you want to go wider. There's already a thread about fisheyes.. just check down on the art/photography main page.
February 05, 2008 @ 19:37:39
cheers broke...

i aint got no budget but i still want the cheapest paired with quality??

any ideas??
February 05, 2008 @ 21:11:09
^i gots a camera already...just need advice on fish eye lenses
February 06, 2008 @ 17:33:26
just bought a rebel xti and in need of some lens advice. so i'm gonna shoot mostly snowboarding and portraits/people, reckon that's kinda hard to cover with one lens. still i've planned to buy a sigma 10-20mm hsm wide angle, is that good one? along the kit lens it would be good choice considering my preferences? is there any other good options in that price range? i've also heard positive opinions about sigma 30mm f1,4. would that be considerable?

what do you think? all constructive feedback is welcome. p's
February 07, 2008 @ 01:00:39
Well for the types of shots you want i wouldn't recommend the 10-20 at all, wouldn't really make much sense if you like portraits and action shots
February 07, 2008 @ 07:28:06
yea i know i need more lenses, but is it less dumb to buy the wide angle first and then the tele?
February 07, 2008 @ 12:01:38
What telephoto are you trying to buy?
February 13, 2008 @ 17:30:23
Whats a good camera for a beginner. Dont know nothing bout cameras or photography. Not too expensive.
February 18, 2008 @ 01:31:17
Im looking to buy my 1st slr and im looking at bundles packages on ebay. Im looking to get a Canon Digital Rebel xti and I find that some of them come with a canon 18-55 lens or a Tamron 28-80 lens. Which lens is better?

Im mostly going to use the camera when im traveling and family functions/gatherings.
February 18, 2008 @ 12:36:56
whats more expensive? nikon or canon lenses?
February 20, 2008 @ 00:05:51
I was thinking Nikon D40 or Canon EOS Rebel Xti. Which one would you guys recommend??
February 20, 2008 @ 00:39:15
To address the previous couple posts....

Nikon lenses are generally a bit more expensive than the Canon equivalent.

Anyone looking at the Nikon D40, should take a good look at the Nikon D50 as well. Discontinued now but still widely available used. The D50 will auto-focus non AF-S lenses where the D40 will not....so that includes great primes like the Nikon 50mm 1.8 which is a great, cheap beginner lens. D50's can be had for $300-400 for body only. I just got one as my first DSLR and love it.
February 21, 2008 @ 14:27:33
February 21, 2008 @ 16:31:44
can someone name the Nikon DSLR's that have an autofocus motor in the body?


Basically all except the D40/D40x, and the new D60.
February 21, 2008 @ 17:40:16
i recommend the 28-80 then the kits lens.

oh okay... good.
I'm planning to keep the D40 (always) as a backup camera, but I have my sights on the D200 as an upgrade. Won't be buying it any time soon... but I'm going to need it as I have plans to do large size printing with images in the future.

Thanks a lot Gmas.

You're welcome man. Yeah it's nice to keep a small, light body to be able to walk around with comfortably.

D200's can be had dirt cheap right now (not much more than D80's) with everybody upgrading to the D300.
February 24, 2008 @ 14:20:18
what's up everyone.
i'm new to photography in general but i was thinking about starting to get into it. i've been looking at the canon powershot s5 and it seems like a good starter camera. i know it's not a dslr but i just want something to start out with. what do you guys think about this camera? good choice or go with something else?
