Your camera

Canon Digital Rebel Xti, I love this camera.

I have a Canon EOS 300D (original digital rebel).

But I’m kind of getting sick of it (and it’s kind of broken right now). I wouldn’t mind getting a 30D. (Or one of these. :D)

Lenses: 18-55mm (kit lens), 75-300mm, and 50mm.


Thanks a lot for the advice!![/FONT]

For now I have a Sony Cyber-shot (7.1 megapixel)

Thanks for the compliment! I love the Nikon cameras, My first was a Coolpix 995, WOW from the beginning, the only issues I have with Nikon is the cost of repair work. My 995 got a pink spot, yes I had it for like 3 years, but the cost to repair was more than a new camera. My D70 then broke, of coarse out of warantee also, luckly the problem was issued a service advisory and it was fixed for free. So I am 50/50 on service, hopefully it either stays the same or gets better.

Two things on this quote, my D70 has a very nice remote control that works from 25 feet away.

My N80, I picked up two different firing cords. The first at a local shop is very short plunger looking thing, works good if you are standing at the camera.
I then picked up a bulb that has a 20 foot tube that connects to the camera. I think the bulb one is great for those macro shots since you can get farther from the camera.

I picked up the blub at, they may have one for your camera

[FONT=“Georgia”]Actually after what Steelsun recommended I started googling Adidt accessories and trying to compare the products with what B&H Photo Video had to offer.

The remote, although it needs its own power, seems to be the way to go.

It’d make it easier to put yourself in the photos too, which is always a good thing.

So, thegunslinger1, can we see some shots??[/FONT]

Canon EOS 10D
Sigma 10-20mm
Canon 50mm f1.8
Quantary 28-90mm (it’s a piece of shart. i just use it for macros)
Contax flash
Sandisk Ultra II 1GB CF

my next lens is either the canon 70-200mm f2.8L, or a sigma prime macro (105mm f2.8)

most likely the sigma, because canon L lens are an arm and a leg

What would you like to see? I have posted in both of the weekly photo threads, and some other misc threads. You can link to my site in my signature.

I do mostly urban and landscapes. Trying to branch into Macro a little more, I need to fine an afforable macro lens.

Weekly photo threads?? We have photo threads??

I’m new to photography. I am a proud owner of a Canon Rebel EXT. You can go through my photos through the link below. Hey, I was even interviewed for my photoblogging! :slight_smile:

Nikon D80 w/ [URL=“”]18-135mm, [URL=“”]50mm 1.8 and [URL=“”]75-300

For product photos I use the 50mm or 18-135 and a light box w/ 4 lights.

Canon 30D
75-300 for my motorsport photography
and the kit lense for my other photography.

I have:

Canon 350D (Rebel XT)
18-55 kit lens
Canon 50 f/1.8
Sigma 70-300 zoom

I’m looking at getting a 100mm macro and a better lens than the kit lens to use as a my main “walkaround” lens.

Simon, talk about timing.
I just picked up Canon’s 100/2.8 Macro last night. Sharp and nice.
They retail for about $475, and well worth it.
Also functions as a great portrait lens.

For a walkaround lens, I reccomend the Tamro 28-75/2.8 or Sigma 18-50/2.8, depending on what your main desire is (mid-zoon vs. wide angle). I have both and they are always in my bag. Pretty sharp and each can be found for about $350 used.

[FONT=“Georgia”]That’s interesting Steelsun.

I always found a prime normal lens to be the best walk-around lens… small, agile, needs-less-light.

I have a wide-angle to tele-photo zoom that’s convenient for action shots and taking masqueraders on the streets during Carnival.[/FONT]

I’m looking for a wide angle rather than a mid-range zoom. I was actually thinking the Tamron 17-50 f/2.8; it’s been getting great reviews and it’s quite cheap too (although apparently it has noisy AF and the zoom ring rotates the opposite way to Canon lenses - neither of which concerns me too much.)

A 30 mm prime will probably be next on my list (probably this time next year at this rate!). I like my nifty fifty but it’s a little too tele with the crop factor on a dSLR to use all the time.

I use one like this…


I don’t know… I hate having a lens that’s too wide when I’m trying to get perpendicular lines… like say if I was taking a picture with a house in the background.

Somehow seeing the straight lines of the corners of the house at slightly un-natural angles drives me mad.

But that’s just me and my personal preference.[/FONT]
