[QUOTE=MrEndangered;31307614]The K-5 will last you an awful lot longer, though. For stills, it's one of the best consumer cameras for it's price. The K-r is good, but I wouldn't recommend it over competitors.[/QUOTE] In terms of dynamic range, tonality, iso performance, etc, the K-5 is the [b]BEST[/b] APS-C camera available on the market.
Sheeeit cracka waiting a little longer is totally worth it, and if you buy the k-r you'll spend more on the long run. I'd kill for a k-5, and I know a lot of people around here would, too.
Personally I would buy the K-r and spend the $600 you save on glass.
Well by the time I have the money (only making $8.50/hr with a part time job, with rent and utilities to pay), Pentax may have released a better camera. And I still need to buy a computer. [editline]24th July 2011[/editline] I wish they would give me more hours.
I have been looking into a new camera for a while now, I have my eyes on the Canon Rebel T2i. I am looking for a camera that can shoot HD, crisp video with very little to no noise in sub-optimal lighting conditions. What do you guys think? what camera would you recommend?

Actually the Pentax one is modified... Damn my Pentax fanboy is showing. But just sayin'

I'm using it for a few weeks now and it's just pure awesomeness.
I have a question for all the Canon owners with a flash. I have a 7D with the 430EX II speedlite and everytime I want to wirelessly trigger it using the pop-up flash from my 7D, they both go off during the exposure instead of only the speedlite. I have it set so only the speedlite will be used during the exposure but my pop-up flash is still visible. Weird thing is, this only happens sometimes.
Odd, how much of a difference in light is there?
The pop up flash flashing is what triggers the speedlite. Your settings, the ambient light, and the power of the speedlite, will affect how much the pop-up can get it's light in to the exposure. Basically, control the pop up flash to be as minimal as possible, and simultaneously try to keep your speedlite on higher power settings.

The best thing to do of course would be to pick up some radio triggers. (Yongnuo RF-603 or RF-602 are cheap and good) If you decide to get some radio triggers order from the Yongnuo ebay store so you get a warranty: [url]http://stores.ebay.co.uk/hkyongnuophotoequipment[/url]
Yeah you guys are right. I will probably just pick up a radio trigger. Wanted one anyway so. Thanks for the advice

how much?
So I'm down to a Nikon D3000 or a Canon EOS 1000D, anyone have any opinions on either of these cameras?
[QUOTE=Xgen;31337957]So I'm down to a Nikon D3000 or a Canon EOS 1000D, anyone have any opinions on either of these cameras?[/QUOTE] Here's a comparison of the two camera's. [url]http://snapsort.com/compare/Canon_EOS_1000D-vs-Nikon_D3000[/url] The cameras are very similar, but I can't say which would be better, it's basically your preference. And according to Ken Rockwell's review on the D3000, it is one of the worst DSLRs Nikon has produced. If you go with Nikon, I'd recommend not getting the D3000, but instead the D40, as on his review he says the D40 is a better camera overall, and is cheaper. Plus, from my experience with the D40, if you are a beginner, as I was when I first started using it, it is excellent for starting with.

The D3000 is going to be better than D40, since the D40 is from 2006.
[QUOTE=Roll_Program;31339112]You have to consider the times they were made. The D3000 is going to be better than D40, since the D40 is from 2006.[/QUOTE] Yeah, but I was going by what Rockwell's review said, and his reviews are always extremely accurate with the pros/cons of the products.

[QUOTE=cueballv2themax;31335197]how much?[/QUOTE] £20.
sweet
Well I ended up getting the 1000D. Thanks for that spec sheet comparison, I was leaning toward the Canon already but that helped me make sure I wanted it.

[QUOTE=Bigboy855;31354696]No it's a Nikon Coolpix S200, check the EXIF info.[/QUOTE] That's weird. The second picture says it's a 450D for me. Oh well, nevermind. The camera you have is fine, just learn to use it.
