      Fancy passing a 5D photo off as a M8. Here is a real M8 photo, look at the quality!

      just buy the cheapest like the 40d and buy good lenses, as I have done.

      bought the 400d, live view is **** on the new cameras and unless you are a pro and making money from your pics its is not worth buying a pro camera.......its only for wankers who have too much money and that is coming from a pic professer that I am attending classes from......The new nikon fisheye lens is worth killing for and there is nothing on the market that is like it at the moment.

      Matty, I have only read the first and last 3-4 post, but I can't believe you want a DSLR and was considering a Sony over Canon and Nikon! I have a 30D and am really happy with it. Between that and a little IXUS compact camera (currently dead and needs a replacement so any recommendation is appreciated) I have all my photo needs. As for video, I have a Canon HV30 HDV for those times when you want high definition videos, and Canon F100 for track day videos and when you want something more compact (also has 45 times optical zoom!). If you need to combine the 2, can I suggest you go for a Canon G10? I'm tempted to get that too as my IXUS replacement but it is just a little chunky.

      I would have got a G10, but I was tired of bulky cameras, so got the Ixus 960 instead. If you can deal with the size of the G10 (which admittedly isn't *that* large) then get it for sure.

      Ixus? Aren't they the official cameras for fhaggots and douchbags?

      Mike is still waiting for his pubic hair.

      I haven't seen the G10 in person, but in pics it looks a bit chunky still. Any regrets with your IXUS960 especially coming from a G series? Ideally that is the size I want too, as I will just bring out the DSLR when I want serious pictures. There is a new one IXUS 990 or something which replaces yours. I wonder if it's worth the wait...

      Anyone have any good suggestions for small photo printers? Or is it better to take them to the shop and get them printed out?

      I've just about given up with inkjet. I think Canon is the best, but the cost of ink and the frequency of purchase is horrific. I have a unit that takes 6 cartridges, and they cost $25-30 each ffs.

      You can get a lot of prints from the lab for the cost of a set of cartridges, and have none of the hassle of dealing with clogged jets, lack of ink at critical times, and expensive paper...

      On the other hand, I can print whenever I want to. High priced convenience...

      Don't know if there are any photo-reasonable colour lasers yet, or if they are any better consumables wise.

      I am of the opinion that shop quality is much better. Btw, how much was the G10? I'm contemplating getting that instead of another Ixus.

      I concur and with the internets you don't have to visit the shop anyway.

      $619 for the camera and case, less a $50 voucher that I will probably use to buy a spare battery. I also got a 8mb card. That should do it I suspect.

      Here's an example of the photos they take. Sorry for the size.

      Not sure if you noticed, but that image is sideways. That's not normal. Did you keep the receipt?

      Matty,

      It would appear you have selected a giant killing camera. Well Done.

      matt? If that is your chesterfield sofa, at your chambers, and that girl is your PA, I'm dobbing you in to the Naughty Old Man Police.

      I think that is matty dressing up hehehe. Matt did you consider the Panasonic TZ15, 10x Optical Zoom..

    26. 10-24-2008 01:16 AM #96
      hehehe,.. welll,.. in all seriousness, aside from the fact she's clearly a model, and the positioning is too perfect, you can see the reflection of an external light source in her eyes. See that white twinkle to the upper left of her pupils? If you zoom in on that you'll see it's actually square, which indicates the photographer is using a classic square soft box, which is a squre lighting box with a white cloth over the front.v The rig is positioned in front of the girl off to her right 9 the viewers left), and it's on a stand of approx 6 foot high ( shown by the location of the releftction in her eye, given that shes' on a chair of waist hieght, and approx 5"10 herself). The flash box has given the girl that lovely natural light flow across her features. If the shot were taken in front by a standard flash mounted camera, you'd have an overly bright, dead straight light flow over her face, without that lovely shadow to her right side.


      PS: As much as the DLSR peeps will scorn, I've recently been using a little fuji Finepix F100Fd, & it's the biz! If you know your techy stuff, go look it up. for a little camera, you'll dig it.

      Interesting article. Thanks Mike. And although I would like to take the credit, I recall that it was Monkey and Tim's idea, not mine.

      Well, the camera arrived today. No wait till November at all.

      Charged it up, stuck it out the window and

      The movie function is just as good. I'm rapt. Thanks everyone.

      Wow, my Canon HDV may take sharper and HD videos, but I don't think it can take a night video as good as this!

      about $4.5k for the body only..... and a LONG waiting list.
      VLF has a decent lens collection (and a whole lot of skill) to go with it as well

      Yeah, that is good.

      I'm going to try and do an introductory photography course to try and shift out of my comfort zone a bit.

      Anyone have any good suggestions? I know Michael's camera store in the city has some courses that run on a Saturday.
