Actually, I dunno what festival you might be talking about, I only got to spend a few days in Edinburgh last summer. But, I did like it in Edinburgh and all over the UK with what vacation time I had

Re: The Photography Thread!

Cirric, those are some of the most amazing photos I've seen in a long time.

Please make a 1440x900 wall paper out of it.

For me?

Re: The Photography Thread!

What camera?

I'm looking to buy an SLR today, something in the realm of 700$.

Anything you would recommend?

it's the CANON IXUS 860IS, I wanted a small one i could carry with me all the time...
Just bought it the week before going to South America.
The good thing is that it's a wide angle camera, and it's one of the very few models of that size with a wide angle. That's one of the reasons I bought it (don't get mistaken though, the picture of the glacier is a panoramic, it's not that wide )
Cost me around 417€ with a second battery, a 4gb card, and a leather case.

I had a canon before too and I never been disapointed with it.
That's why I dond't even bother looking at other brands, might be stupid but there are so many and since I'm used to the canon options & stuff, I'm all for it. Plus they often (like this one) have lots of manual options/features, so you're not limited with presets or auto-modes... there's always something to learn.
Honestly, I love it!!

You can check on www.megapixel.net, they make pretty good reviews of cameras


Hope this helps.




the canon eos 400d is the mad thing now!
Oh actually I just noticed it's the XTI rebel as ch0kshsa is saying... they sometimes have different names between US and Europe.

I've heard nothing but arguments against Canon's Rebel Xti, saying it's the worst of the SLRs they make, that core features have been removed, that it has poor macro settings and high distortion/noise rate at higher ISOs, and that it doesn't nearly have the output as some of the Sony or Nikon (D40) models at the same price have.

Care to try and push me otherwise? I want a Rebel, my wife wants a Rebel. We just need a reason to buy a Rebel.

Btw - Thanks to Fox for the link.

Re: The Photography Thread!

well look the review of the canon EOS 400D n that site I gave you.
I think it's the first time I see a camera with a score of 9.6 for functionalities and 9.6 for Photography qualities (out of 10 obviously lol).

Re: The Photography Thread!

Yeah, but on other sites it ranks far below the Nikon D80 (the other camera I was considering).

Also need to take into consideration that the kit lens with Xti is terrible, and I would have to invest another 600-800$ for a good enough lens to really bring out the quality.

The one thing that sticks out about the Xti is the image quality, which is always ranked above most in most review sites.

And end the end, isn't that what really matters?

...

Not kidding, I'm asking you.

Re: The Photography Thread!

look at that, that's the 2nd site I use for cameras reviews
http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/canoneos400d/page22.asp

http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/canoneos40d/page29.asp
vs
http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/nikond80/page29.asp

hope this helps.
Seems more noise with the Nikon though


I ididn't read everything, but honestly those 2 sites should be enouhg for you to make a decision


good luck
