    If you want to do really good night photography, and really get into it, a tripod and shutter release are your best bet. Even the 50mm 1.8 when its dark dark out can be iffy.

    that is the kit lens for the XSI right?

    for 174 bucks you can get the 50mm 1.8 for 80 bucks.

    I messed around with the lens you are referring to and its faster than the non IS version but nothing remarkably different. Night photography has a lot to do with getting exposure settings correct. I agree with the tripod statement as well. I've been using the timer button with my tripod to ensure the camera is as still as possible as well.


    what are you using now?(Lense, flash, etc)

    Any night time photography will require some type of aid. Tripod or flash, pick your poison.

    i actually haven't started yet, have played around with my friend's d40

    but i want to get a rebel xti for myself and figured why not get an 18-55 lens with IS over the 18-55 kit without IS
