Camera type

3 posts in this topic

I always wanted to get a camera for those special pictures that come up that a typical camera can not catch. Just wondering what type or brands that you would recommend ? Not sure as to what shutter speed is my biggest question. Do not want to get to deep but some helpful hints for someone that wants to get started . Obviously I would not be able to afford top of the line camera but just something in the middle. So much to choose from but do not have a clue where to start. Any information would be greatly appreciated. I Love the pics in this forum a bunch of great pics! Hopefully someday I can add to them.

I've had good luck with my Canon Rebel XT and XTi. You can get a used XT for around $300 WITH LENS if you know where to look, IE online classified and places like National Camera Exchange.

Same can be said for a Nikon D40. Both are older digital SLRs but you can get some remarkable shots with either, and they are perfect for the beginner.

And there are just some of us who can't afford a Canon 5D Mark II with 3 L series lenses or a Nikon D700 :P

Canon or Nikon are both very good brands if you ever think about seriously getting into photography. Both offer a larger selection of lenses then Sony, Olympus, etc do for their SLRs; as they can both use film lenses; which for someone with a budget, finding a used film lens for my Canon for under $100 is allways a nice little gem then having to spend $500 on one that is new.

What I would do is this: go to your local camera store, and ask them to let you play with both Nikon and Canon DSLRs; either the Dxx or Canon Rebel series. Both of these are great cameras, and are easy to use.

Find out which one both fits your budget and feels best to YOU by doing this. Everyone can say that one camera is better then another; but it also comes down to your own preferences on how easy you feel the camera is to use, or how comfortable the controls are.

    • I'm getting pretty far ahead of myself, but I'm beginning to wonder if another trailer ramp spring would be the way to go for raising the back bunk.  I've never used one before, but I'm sure you can set the tension so it's well below the maximum and it wouldn't take so much effort to pull it down.  Just put up some guide rails and spring latches to latch it in the down position.  Any thoughts?

    • Well that sure "Trumps" anything else going around and around on in this site today!
    • Yeah you're right, my bad. Yes, the line is awful. 
    • It was a false start on the OL and another one could have been called on the 2nd attempt.  The OL is just BAD, probably the worst I've ever seen for a vikings team.  It seems like few teams put a high priority on the OL.  A good OL can make an average qb, wr, and rb look awfully good when it gives them time and opens holes.  A bad OL can also make a great qb, wr, rb look awfully bad.
    • OLE77, They did replace the valve cover when they did the STP treatment at 92,000 miles; it made no lasting difference.    delcecchi, I have the 5.3 engine.  I'm guessing I need new rings, that seems to be what everyone tells me.   Down2Earth, When I initially brought it in, Village told me they had never heard of the problem.  When I returned (I had then googled it and heard about the AFM and many, many people who have gone through this), they changed their tune and pointed the finger at GM as not letting them properly fix it.  What a joke.   I've attached a photo of the plugs I changed out last week.  This is now a monthly ritual for me.  Great, really looking forward to changing these out in my driveway this Jan.  Grrrrrr.
    • I bought 2 fans off Amazon for $18 each and there 110v. There 5"x 5" and about 4" deep. I was thinking about mounting them under the heater. Or would it be better to but them in a woodbox and mount on to?. They say there good for 69,000 hr of run time.
    • To bad we had an holding penalty that made us attempt it from the 7.
