i haven't ever done car shots before, but i am guessing it's not going to be possible to eliminate reflections, since the mirror-like finish of the paint is inherent. it's not like water, where you can use a polarizer to reduce glare/reflections, since for water the reflections are not inherent. you can try though, i guess. i may work or may not, i have no clue actually, haha. just buy a used circular polarizer, it'll come in handy eventually anyway!

Wasn't a impulse buy cause I did tons of research but still, I still feel kind of uneasy having this. Oh well....everything is said and done so I'll see if I still hate or will love Nikons.
All you Nikon lovers better show me what you got so I can feel loved having this thing! Haha!
yea i would have recommended starting out on one of the smaller/easier to use ones, but if you've done your research and know all your functions and are serious, then it should be no problem. it's basically like starting out on a geometro versus a g35, and you decided to choose the more expensive ones with more functions. it'll have a higher learning curve, but at the end it will have more "payoff" in terms of what you can do with it, if that makes sense.

Just curious, what kinda camera did you get?
you quoted this wrong, ebayologist, never said that
i'm guess you're asking this though - as mentioned briefly previously i started out on holga and now own the yashica, same as the other guy you mentioned earlier.
