I currently use an Olympus E-410 with three lenses and a flash unit. I do mostly air show and racing photography. I've recently been looking at the Canon EOS 60D and the Nikon D7000. Would it be a good idea to upgrade or should I stick with what I have?
Hi, I was wondering if there was any setting to control f-stops and possibly shutter/aperture on the Canon SD3500 IS? Thanks.
I'm planning on buying a DSLR for the first time and I've chosen the T4i as my first camera for its obvious superiority with regards to filming than comparable DSLRs. My only concern now is which stock lens to shoot for, the 18-55mm or the 18-135mm. I wouldn't mind savings couple hundred bucks and from what I've read it would be relitively inexpensive for me to buy a longer range lens later on. Should I shell out a couple extra hundred dollars for the 18-135mm, or should I stick to the cheaper...
Well, to be frank, I am not a professional photographer. I just want to buy a good camera to take photos. Since I would like to memorize every second of beauty and touching moment. Those could happen on my way to office, on my way back home, when hanging out with friends and family, whenever I come into a new place. LOL~
any suggestions? Thanks~~
It's about time to look at a trade up from the original 5D to the MKii ... what do you think is a reasonable asking price if I'm trying to sell the old girl to make some money to fund the new purchase? It's in good condition - I've babied it over the last three years I've owned it. Three extra batteries ... all the stuff that came in the box, body only. Also, I totally understand I'm a generation behind, but given the price points, I'm happy to live in the lag.
I'm looking into getting my first DSLR and I'm trying to pick out which camera to go with. While features are nice, I don't need a surplus of camera features that I will never use. At this point, just enough features to take nice pics with, and to take advantage of what I do have.
Naturally, I'm looking at Nikon and Canon, but still am not sure which of those to go with. Any recommendations?
I'm not a professional photographer, but I am thoroughly enjoying taking photographs and have found the Canon 50mm f/1.4 to be a joy to use.
I'm quite interested in the 85mm prime but the mid-range lens, the f/1.8 doesn't offer the same sort of aperture to be found on the 50mm.
Is it worth the extra cash to go for the L series f/1.2 lens. Of course I'm sure that you'll get more than just a wider aperture, the glass quality must be excellent, but it is a big jump in price ($358 -> $2,049).
My lens broke and I have considered upgrading my Rebel XT with the Rebel T3 or possibly the T1i.
The standard kit lens 18-55, is around $150. The thing is the T3 but it's down to $420 on Amazon, a complete steal. I want to eventually move up to a more professional SLR but I am a senior in college with a very limited budget.
How is the T3?
By quality, i mean actual *print* quality doesn't have to be great. I don't print often, and when I do print, its like a concert ticket or something that still requires paper proof. Ideally, I'd like a printer that is the size of the Neat Company's single document scanner. Even if it only printed black and one sheet at a time, then I could store it. So- does anyone have a good suggestion for something that exists now that is close? Hopefully under $100, but willing to pay a bit more than $100 if...
I've got a Nikon D40x currently from quite a number of years ago. Is it too outdated and should I start getting into photography by getting a new body first, or should I just get a few lenses to play around with first?
I'm looking to get a DSLR in the $600-700 price range for Christmas, and it's very important that it can take good 1080p videos.
So now I don't know wether I should go for the Nikon D5100 or the Canon 600D.
Of course shooting still images is also very important.
Pretty sure I'm going to get the T2i, mostly for video recording. But now I'm torn between buying it with the 18-55mm kit lens, or buying the body and a 50mm 1.8 lens separately (as I've heard its great for video). Thoughts?
My old inexpensive Canon 8400F was a great scanner — flatbed for paper, negative holder for film, and it also had software that let it double as a copier. It only did 4800dpi, but that's enough for my needs.
But the drivers aren't Lion compatible, so I'm shopping for a replacement. And the major scanners like the Epson V700 are expensive, in the $500 range. Any bargains out there?
