    Can I ask a sort of back to basics question here?...

    Can I ask a sort of back to basics question here?

    Aren't I right in saying that anti-shake just lets you use a slower shutter speed? Well that's all well and good if your subject keeps still....

    Hi again.

    The picture above is far from perfect, not least because I shot a little bird in full sun against a large shady background, so all the colours are a bit washed out. Ideally I would have...

    Mine should be first off the lorry, but it won't be here until next week.

    Sorry, forgot to say this lot comes to about £1400. If you don't want to go that high, 350Ds are coming right down in price. I doubt if you'd notice any difference in res at A4 and for your £200...

    I had pretty much the same dilemma. In the end I went for the 400D (Rebel XTi) as it has anti-dust (although I don't expect it to work miracles) and good high ISO noise levels (according to...

    Thanks again for those comments.

    Just to come back to the issue of which manufacturer, rather than which specific camera, I should go for, coldrain you said the 17-85 is not a brilliant lens. I...

    Thanks for the advice, especially re the 17-85 lens.

    Canon or Nikon?

    I am planning to buy my first D-SLR. I have about 1200 to spend and for that I want a couple of decent lenses, around 18-100 and 70-300, with anti-shake (I inherited my Dad's shaky hands).

    I was...

    Thanks for your reply - obviously it's possible then, but as you say, is quality compromised?

    Do you get vignetting or reflections or anything like that?

    S2 IS Wide Angle with Filters

    I see some people are using the Raynox 6600 Pro on a Lensmate adaptor. Does this work OK with a UV and/or a polarizer on the front?

    Alternatively, is it possible to put filters inbetween an...

    I know this thread is a bit old, but hopefully this will be helpful.

    I keep the adaptor and a UV on the camera all the time, with a hama 58mm supersnap lens cap. These have a kind of spring-loaded...
