What is the point of an external flash? What's the difference between an external flash and the crappy internal flash that comes with the camera?

with external flashes, you can direct your flash away from the subject

External flashes are much more versatile. One of the first things you'll notice with external flash is the ability to bounce flash opposed to your on camera flash that just shoots direct flash. bounce flash allows you to bounce the flash off ceilings or other objects to fill the room with light and not just the subject.

Also external flashes are more powerful than on camera flash and allow for more versatile usage. You can change the power output, timing, etc.

External flashes are great but remember your equipment is only as good as you are willing to lug it around. More expensive equipment is usually heavier and more hassle to carry around.

thinking of biting the bullet on a 5d2.

estimated price for selling the
d90 body.
50mm.
10.5 fish (these things just went up in price didn't they? )
sb600.

thinking of just starting off with a 24mm f/2.8, comfortable focal length for me, and i probably cannot afford any L glass after breaking the bank.

y/n?

yes, but wait when the 5d3 comes out, price will go down for the 5d2
Jan 30, 2011 @ 12:15
Usually when something new is coming out the older models sell out quick. I would probably just get it now than risk not being able to get it at all. - 24 is okay if you shoot wide, but I would stick to the normal portrait primes that canon has to offer.

Can anyone recommend a good backdrop stand thats affordable but good?
Also what size backdrop stand would you guys say is good for group portraits?

Deciding between the Ccanon 28mm 1.8 or Tamron 17-50 2.8 VC. I've researched both extensively, but no local stores have them in stock to try out in person.

How's the AF on the Tamron? I hear it's noisy and slow and has trouble in low light situations. This is my gripe since I do tonnes of low light shooting.

And my gripe with the 28mm is that it's $689 where I'm at. Expensive.

If you do decide to pull the trigger, sell me the 50! I'm actually in the market for a decent prime right now.

Like Dopeski said, you may be hard-pressed to find a 5d2 if you don't pull the trigger right when the 3 comes out.

Just take some pics and enlarge them in the lcd to examine them. If they look legit then your good to go.

Congrats on the purchase

can somebody hook me up with how much of a difference these two lenses are. besides for the price and 4mm's?


Tamron SP 28-75MM F/2.8 XR Di LD Aspherical (IF)


Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM Standard Zoom Lens for Canon SLR Cameras

image quality-wise, they aren't too different from each other. the 4mm difference on the short end is negligible, then extra 5mm on the long end isn't noticeable either. of course the canon wins on overall picture quality, but it's 3-4x the price of the tamron which is close to 90% of what the canon is.

what sets it apart from each other is the presence of USM on the canon. USM stands for ultrasonic motor, which is canon technology-speak for a faster and quieter focusing motor. you can look up videos on youtube for the sound that the tamron makes when it tries to focus, and compare that to the almost non-existent sound that the canon makes.

if you need the very best, get the canon. if you're willing to sacrifice 10% of the picture quality but only pay 30% of the price, get the tamron.
Feb 05, 2011 @ 02:57
^^ what he said.

I think the biggest difference between the two lenses is the image quality. If price isn't really a factor for you then go for the 24-70mm. Most pros use that lens and i've had experience with the 24-70 by borrowing my uncles and it's amazing. Much faster af too. All in all, the 24-70 is much better if you're focused on IQ and focusing but if youre on a low budget and need a nice walk around lens, then the 24-75 is the way to go

Anyone know a good ext. Flash you can get for the Canon AE-1?

The main factor is image quality. You'll really notice the difference between the two side by side. If you have the money for the Canon, then go for it. Take into account that if you do get the Canon, you'll probably never replace or flip it. With the Tamron, you'd probably sell it in the future.

So I just started shooting about a month or two ago and finally got the hang of it and learned terms and concepts about a month ago. I'm currently using a Canon Rebel XT with the standard 18-55mm kit lens and a Tamron 55-200mm/4-5.6. Right now, I'm just shooting as a hobby; nothing too serious (usually just pictures of friends and family and the occasional "artsy" close-up).

For a while now, I've been meaning to pick up a new lens, since I'm getting pretty bored of alternating between the macro and kit lens. I want a lens that'll look sharp and could be used on a regular basis.

I've been wanting to cop a fisheye, and I finally found one that is somewhat within my budget (I was ecstatic when I saw the price, since most fisheye lenses I saw went for $400-1000):
Rokinon FE8MC 8mm/3.5



I've also heard good things about the Canon EF 50mm/1.8 lens



So what do you guys think? Which lens should I cop? The fisheye is about $100 more than the 50mm/1.8 lens. Any other suggestions?
Feb 09, 2011 @ 00:08
definitely get the 50mm first.
