if your budget is 150-200 go to best buy.

yeah ive tried the d80 at school also. i think there are more options on the d80. i've yet to try the xti, coming in the mail.

how are the 18-55 and 75-300 kit lenses.

whats resale value mint condition?

Do you want a DSLR camera or a point and shoot? For like $100 more you can get a DSLR and have options like changing lenses. With a point and shoot and that budget, you can get a good camera, but not have the options.

this may be a stupid question.. but are there fish eye lenses. or only attachments. considering the 1.6 cropping on an xti.

Looking at the Nikon D40 and D40x, i know the megapixle has a diffrence 6.1 and 10.2 but is there anything else that i am over looking, and does the megapixle make a big diffrence?
Dec 05, 2007 @ 10:04
??? the d40 is cheaper on the sites that i was looking at.
Dec 05, 2007 @ 10:32
For fish-eye on a crop.. check out Sigma's 8mm fish or wait for their crop optimized 4.5mm circular fish..

This or That?
I am looking to get my first DSLR this week. I have been reading extensively on the web and was hoping to get some pros and cons regarding the two cameras I have decided I want. One prime consideration is the similar cost $600-$700 price range
Dec 05, 2007 @ 14:49
Check tha name.. I'M BROKE! I had the 17-40.. and exchanged it for the 17-55 IS. f/4 is too slow for me.

A sweet upgrade from the kit is the new 18-55 IS: LINK
The IQ has been compared to the 17-55 IS and it's under $200!!

In response to FlasinLeather

XTi because of the lens selection.

I'm going to merge this with the camera/lens advice thread..

everyone hatin on canon in the posts awhile back (feels like a toy, too small) and now people are liking them?
Dec 06, 2007 @ 11:11
im in the market for a good digital point and shoot any suggestions?
Dec 06, 2007 @ 12:19
canon G9
Dec 06, 2007 @ 12:56
Canon A560 or A570 IS: LINK

A560 is one of the most popular point/shoots right now and is under $150. Battery lasts around 500 shots.. the A570 IS has image stabilization for $100 more.. IS is sweet for dimly lit captures and still objects.

The G9 is a nice camera.. it's pricey.. but it's NICE. It's got the manual functions of a DSLR but quick and easy to use like p/s. I wouldn't mind it instead of the XTi I bought. The XTi just ended up putting me more and more into debt :T

It's called dragging the shutter, in order to make the people look sharp the flash needs to be set for 1st curtain sync.

For example a handful of them was set for f/5.6 and a 1/2" exposure and obviously with a flash.

i dont really get that. can someone elaborate. thanks

Hello, as im a noob to SLR cams, im really lost and dont have a clue what im doing.

Im after a fish eye lens but am not sure what to get, i have a canon 400D.
Ive looked on ebay and i get complete rubbish, or what atleast i think is rubbish.

Links to some.


Should i stick to buying canon products or is there a huge difference between the brands.

Also, if anyone has some good sites where i can get some second hand lens (also after a wide angle lens).

Thank you.
