    Hi northvetter

    I'd probably go with 18-55 lens if you're just starting out. The reason being it's relatively small and light, but still provides a useful zoom range when you're out and about. The...

    You're right about the PRO versions having the horizontal center column, and I must admit I am growing to the idea. The 190XPROB is quite a bit more expensive, but the...

    Just a quick note about the change of direction for the GF2, here in Taiwan it's marketed as the 'Girlfriend 2' (who knew that's what GF actually meant? ;)).

    Tripods (Giottos and Manfrotto)

    Hi everybody

    I've been looking at tripods recently, but it's still all a bit bewildering to me. I just want something with fairly good quality that can handle a small DSLR with a medium zoom lens...

    Never mind guys, apparently non-HD lens can continually autofocus with little if any noise, it's just the HD-branded lenses are more optimised.

    A Sad Day

    Hi guys

    Today I listed my DSLR on eBay :( It's a sad day for me, because I bought it with such excitement and high hopes, but I just don't have the time or energy needed to put into it.

    I was...

    Hi guys,

    Third-Party Flash

    Hi guys

    I'm thinking of buying my first flash unit, as the 500D's built-in flash is getting a little limited.

    Hi everybody

    I've had the Sigma 17-70 2.8-4.5 as a walkabout lens on my 500D for the last few months, but I've noticed that without a tripod a lot of my shots are slightly blurred (zoomed out they...
