YO YO YO FAMILY. I need a flash for my T2i. Nothing to expensive. Budget - 300 bucks maybe? Something that will last. What do you guys suggest?

yongnuo yn560. $80. it's full manual though no e-ttl.
there are other versions like the yn-486 that have e-ttl.

^ nice man i hope you get a good copy. you're really gonna love it! been using this lens a lot and it is just great. people say the auto focus is pretty slow, but in real world shooting its actually really fast and quite reliable. also the bokeh and colours from this lens are fantastic.


I like it, and it focuses a lot faster then my nikon 50 1.4 G.

all I do is sip espressos and listen to AZ -mrelllis.tumblr.com

I'm planning on selling my Sony A290 for another Sony Body, Sony A55 or Sony A560, still unsure. What would be a 'competitor' against the A560 or what would it be comparable to?

Nooby photographer in need of answer ASAP
Okay, so long story short; I wanted to pick up a Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 lens for my Rebel XT. I found a good deal on eBay, but in the product description, it says it's for medium format cameras, which to my knowledge, has something to do with film (and obviously, mine is a DSLR).

But being that the lens is an EF lens, it'd still be able to fit onto my Rebel XT, correct (EF-S mount)?

I'm pretty much new to photography and still learning different things day by day. People are telling me to shoot in jpeg or raw mode? Can someone briefly explain to me the difference and whats better? Also with aspect ratios, which is better to shoot in? My camera offers 2:3 and 16:9. I'm still learning post processing with the pictures too. I'm shooting with a Sony A560 + 35F1.8

Shoot RAW.

RAW is exactly what the sensor captures whereas JPEG is processed by the camera to reduce file size and therefore suffers from reduced quality. A RAW image also has a +/-1EV headroom in exposure which is extremely helpful when post-processing.

Stick with 2:3. You can always crop to 16:9.

I'd recommend a good photography and post-processing book. Scott Kelby's Digital Photography Series and Photoshop CS5 for Digital Photographers are top-notch and Scott Kelby himself is a giant in the industry.

You not only have to look at the bodies, but the entire system and then make your choice.

If you're a Micro 4/3s shooter (Panasonic "GF" series, Olympus "EP).. the sharpest lens you can possibly buy for under $400 is the Contax G 45mm F/2 Zeiss Planar. It's sharper than my friend's L primes and is, in relative terms, extremely cheap.

You can find an adapter (I use an adapter called 'Metabones' from a vendor named Lasjashk -- quick Google should find him) and start using it ASAP. It may be legacy, but it's a huge asset. Very sharp. Bokeh is extremely nice. Black and white photos look like they pop out of your monitor and come to life.
