[QUOTE=altern;35337228]I know I'm not going to be able to afford it, but how much are you asking? Or do you already have a buyer?[/QUOTE] It's too late... It just left. WAAA! I sold it for $625 with a camera backpack. Not bad considering they cost $650 new. But damn man I am really bummed out.
Well, after many years of using my faithful little [URL="http://www.dpreview.com/products/sony/slrs/sony_dslra200"]Sony A200[/URL] I finally got my replacement!. Upgraded to the [URL="http://www.dpreview.com/products/sony/slrs/sony_slta77"]Sony SLT-a77![/URL] I'm probably going to take my a200 in and get the infrared filter removed off the sensor so I can use it as infrared camera. Now time to save up for a tilt-and-shift lens. That's the only thing I don't have. I recently got mirror lens so that base is covered.

Anyone know if there is a way to make a D3000 focus after a timer instead of before? I'm experimenting with selfies and such, and I can't use an IR remote, so I'm stuck with using the timer, but it's really difficult to get the autofocus right when at f/1.8 and trying to manual focus it requires a lot of guess work and trial and error.

Mkay. Why move it back after focusing where you are going to stand, won't that make you out of focus?

Basicly gives the camera shutter priority functionality. Pretty pointless because i already have a Canon EF, T70 and T90 that have this functionality built in though. But yeah, i just bought it because i can and it looks cool as hell :v:
Got a Zenit ET but its got a bit of rust and the leatherette is a bit dodgy which means its time for another, CommunistWolf is useless at camera DIY .

You can never own too many cameras [IMG]https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-3D0rozoZcTQ/T3dsrRGYGOI/AAAAAAAAANk/E61tD4t8nag/s640/DSC00023.JPG[/IMG] Also I was given a Helios 44-2 by my nextdoor neighbour and its nearly immaculate
My uncle was into photography when he was in college and a bit afterward. After chatting with him while we scanned some photos I took he told me about Jeff Bridges and his wide-lux. He just gave me a call saying that he had invested into a sprocket rocket, and I guess he's hinting that we should hang out and take pictures with it once he gets it. Kind of a family building thing as we barely converse. Pretty cheap too.

can someone recommend me a solid tripod for under $100? the shitty quantaray i got for my birthday broke, as i expected it to
Promaster gear seems alright for sub-$100 everything, pretty much. Filters, tripods, memory cards etc. [editline]2nd April 2012[/editline] Been using the 7400 (I think) for over a year with a 5d fully loaded and it's usably sturdy. It's definitely not a luxury, but it works.
this is the tripod i use [url]http://www.amazon.com/Targus-TG-P63T-Professional-Tripod-Panhead/dp/B004I34QBE/ref=sr_1_14?ie=UTF8&qid=1333389010&sr=8-14[/url] (it is only $50, look in cart) great tripod, seems sturdy to me (legs are pretty thick), comes with hooks if you need more weight.
[video=vimeo;39374354]https://vimeo.com/39374354[/video] Really can't wait for this to come out. The samples I've seen look really nice and it's supposedly only gonna be $650.
april fools...
I want to believe. It was posted on 28 March, not 1 April, and I did see some tests from other users (though it could be a joke those people were in on). [img]http://www.facepunch.com/fp/ratings/rainbow.png[/img]
Wondering if I should get the 55-200 nikon af-s vr. I like landscape and natural photography, and capturing subjects in the city but want to stay away from them.
55 is too tight, particularly on a crop sensor. 55-250 would be a good solution for covering that range, [i]in addition[/i] to something wider. [img]http://shikagoland.files.wordpress.com/2012/02/beating-a-dead-horse.gif[/img]
Just ordered one of these guys; [IMG]http://www.bhphotovideo.com/images/largeimages/725696.jpg[/IMG]
That would be fun to have around, but any specific use? Either way it looks cool.
Will be using it for syncing audio in a short film. Plus, I've always wanted one.

I like landscape and natural photography, and capturing subjects in the city but want to stay away from them.[/QUOTE] 55 is a good minimum range for isolating your landscape. for instance, this is a picture i took with a 50 [url]http://www.flickr.com/photos/63755315@N08/6991331361/in/photostream[/url] and this is a similar scene i took with a 16 [url]http://www.flickr.com/photos/63755315@N08/6842822232/in/photostream[/url] i like long lenses for landscape, but they require more of a subject to not feel cramped. like bopie said, you want to try and get something on the wider spectrum as well. i've found wide lenses to be better overall, and long ones for when there's something i really plan on taking a photo of
I am looking for one or two extra flashguns which I can use when I have a shoot on location. Don't really want to spend a lot of money and get two 430EX II's or whatever but I just want some decent flashguns that I can use with an umbrella or softbox. Any tips?
[url]http://www.linkdelight.com/T3E-4-Channel-Wireless-Flash-Gun-Trigger-Transmitter-+Receiver-x2.html[/url] I don't have experience with this specific product, but I've bought a follow focus and a battery grip from them and they're pretty decent for the price. Shipping takes a while though since they're from China, but if you search the product number on eBay I'm sure you could find them shipped closer.
