PostSubject: NCFJ Photography Thread   Sun Feb 12, 2012 10:19 pm

Anyone here into photography?

I'm currently shooting a Canon XSi, which is a excellent camera but looking to upgrade soon. Right now I'm torn between a Canon 5D MkII or a Nikon D7000.

Looking for some feedback on what you personally use or like/dislike. Post up some pictures and what camera you used too!





Here are a couple of photos I've taken with the XSi and lens that came in the kit:

Awesome pictures!!! make sure your bring you camera and skills to the spring meet!!! Smile

My wife is trying to get into more "advanced" photography... I bought her a Samsung DSLR camera last year as a starter into more advanced cameras...at $800.00+, it is not a cheap camera, but no where near your league. maybe you guys can chat at the spring meet.

I've had my eye on that camera for a little while now. It's supposed to get excellent HD video also

I'm just an amateur in photography...it's a fun hobby but can get expensive! You should introduce her to this thread and she can join in on the discussion Smile

Found out that the photo site Flickr lets you search photos taken by a certain camera. It even lets you narrow the choices down to night shots, action, landscape, etc... That is a great feature!

I'm very much an amateur but have always been a Nikon fan, and a bigger fan of their glass. I currently have a D60 and dreams of up upgrading the body and some faster glass. Most of my pics sit on my computer or facebook. Here's a few samples of ones I've taken, housed on facebook so the colors and details are a bit lacking. I'm not much of people photographer, in fact I'll wait around for people get gone for my shot.

Some great shots! I've seen people talking about getting a faster lens. What does that exactly mean, focus time?

It's the f/ value. The lower the f/value, the larger maximum aperture opening. This means faster shutter speed. Of course it means much higher $$$ too.

Here is a better explanation...
