Official Photography Thread: Vol. ICan'tFindTheLastOne - Page 219
So i was at circuit city and they have the d40x with kit for $420 or xti kit for only $499
I'm ready to make the dive into an dSLR but I still can't decide on Nikon v Canon..
Can someone decide for me please, thanks in advance
Go Canon and get the XTi. No need to worry about lens compatibility.
can anyone recommend me a good zoom lens for canon xsi?
x2 for the price ($200) this lens cant be beat - if you have money then 70-200 f/2.8 L or f/4 L then go for it .. but you will be paying 5 - 10x time more than the nifty fifty two
^damn im still getting used to this photography thing but id say you picked it up real quick. nice pics
Not sure if you was talking to me, but if so - Thanks!
I'm trying man - This week, has been really hectic with the baby and hospital and beside thinking about my daughter very next thing has been taking pictures .. LOL
But yeah, I'm about to get on the picture taking grind again ...
Post some of your work ...
And this will kind of be a odd statement, but after looking at this photo it kind of reminded me of it. Does anyone get all weird when someone next to you has a bigger/better camera? I would carry my XTi everywhere and when I would be next to someone that has a better camera with a bigger lens, I would seriously feel like I am some novice rookie photographer. Now that I have a D90, I feel like I have more of a sense of pride and confidence now where ever I go (....alright let me drop the no-+!!# word just in case). I just think its funny regardless since homeboy with the Nikon has a big lens doesn't have the girth of the Canon guy......haha!
I was on a train once looking at some of the pictures that i took with my 18-200mm lens and some dude with a D700 sat next to me carrying a million dollar home and a nikon case for some kind of humongous @%# lens. He started talking about taking pictures blah blah...visit this garden...this shrine...and he comes and tell me he was an amature/rookie baseball photographer in japan.
me: uhhmmm i take pictures for fun and *post them on NT* (I didnt really say i post them on NT)
I felt like a real noob.
how is it the d40x is on clearance but the d40 isn't?
anyways back to the hunt for a good deal for a starter dSLR...
WARNING!! The D90s Rumor is a RUMOR... Not confirmed in any way shape or form!
The D65 is also a rumor, but said to be from a more credible source.
The TSi, also a rumor, but its got to happen eventually. They get re-launched every 12-18 months.
Nikon D90s and Nikon D65
Last week someone posted a picture of Nikon D90s to one of the posts (obviously fake, but still entertaining - if they had gone with D900 instead, it would look much better):I also got some specs for a potential Nikon D65 (nothing reliable at that point, but we all know something similar is coming soon):
- 12mp CMOS
- 9 AF-points CAM 850, 1 Cross type
- 720p video
- Live view
- Dust reduction
- PMA 2009 release
I do find the name D65 plausible - there was already a Nikon F65 model.

New Rebel in January?
Received an anonymous email about January 28th being the day the new Rebel is announced.
I'm still thinking it'll be sometime in February.
i don't mind waiting but won't new cameras be a @*%+ load more than something out now and for a complete newb like me.. will those be more advanced models aka something i should avoid for now?
The TSi is basically the new XSi, the D65 would be the new D60. They're both starter cameras.
Rap Sizzle- I got the 5dMKII and just love it. The screen is amazing and the live with the video option is just an added bonus. I was going to get the 1D MKIII but i decided to get the 5d because of the better ISO quality also i mostly shoot fashion/ports. so i decided i didnt need the extra FPS. Here is the first shoot i did with the 5D. Sorry for the bad quality upload.
Nice photos man. After looking at some low-light photos posted by 5D Mark II users, I'm pretty much convinced that 5D Mark II is the perfect fit for me. It just sucks that I have to find another deal for an EF 85 f/1.2L II. Dude I bought it from mailed it without insurance and USPS lost it. Sucks for him, that's $1500 he just lost. I get my money back since Google Checkout needs to verify that I received the item.
Where did you get your Mk II from btw? I'm waiting for Adorama to stock up
In no offense to Nikon users at all...but isn't the Nikon's method of naming their models kind of dumb? What do they after the D90s? D90h??? Unlike Canon, they left no room in terms of numbers for future models. It would be funny if they start doing D91, D92 and etc. Same goes for the D40/D60 (I still find it funny how a D50 was released before a D40) and D300 route. At least Canon uses "marks" to identify the generation of some of its products.
True, it is weird. you still have a D90x, D90s, to fill some space, but I don't understand it either. There has to be a reason why they do it like that.
