    Hello folks :)

    In my new adventures with my Canon Rebel T1i, I started to buy things required.

    I have alot of fun so far and that is what matters to me first :)

    Now, this is what I have......and would like to know, in order, what suggested to get. Try to stay in affordable price.....for now :)


    My toys:


    1 - Canon Rebel T1i
    2 - Lens EF-S 18-55 IS
    3 - Bag Lowerpro 100w
    4 - 4 extra batteries
    5 - 16 gig Class 6 memory card

    I need a tripod
    would love a lens for macro
    would love a lens for zooming
    filters, wich ones
    is body armor useful? I would like to protect my camera and keep it scratchless
    remote

    These are on my wish list....

    ok, what are the top 5 or more that is a MUST.



    Thx all!

    I can't imagine you will need 4 batteries...unless you find yourself without electricity for a few weeks...and do a lot of shooting.

    What about memory cards?

    1. Tripod, get one.

    As for filters, the only one I really recommend is a circular polarizer.

    I read that a battery was good for like maybe 500 RAW photos...

    I have 4 because it was cheap and in pack of 2 :) Better have more than not enough.

    Oh yeah I forgot, I have a 16gig Class 6 memory card

    Depends on a lot of factors, like screen usage, flash usage, AF usage etc.

    That's true :)

    When it comes to lenses, I like to recommend that people use the kit lens for a while before buying something new. After you use it for a while, you should have a better idea of what will be the best 'next' lens for you.

    If you don't know what you want you're not a true photog....why are you asking other people what you need? I never get this. Now asking for recomendations on something you want is different.

    Forget the body armor. I had it and got rid of it. It doesn't do much except attract dust.

    Mike,

    I went to shoot birds today that around my house, i live at the country, and I know about lens, im limited for that kind of pics.


    Scotty,

    I asked others what they suggest. I know what I want. I'm asking 2nd opinions or tips. I think this forum is about that no?

    And I never said I was a true photografer...so.....I have no problems with that.

    I dont tink you started with all the knowledge you have today. We all start somewhere.

    This isn't helpful to the guy.

    I suggest you get a tripod. And possibly a flash. Flashes make a big difference. On camera flashes are basically useless. And maybe a 50mm 1.8 lens. They are 100 new on amazon and produce AMAZING pictures. Thats my 2 cents.

    Oh yea...I forgot to tell you what flash to get. Get a Canon 430ex or if you can spring the extra money a 580ex.

    Tripod. Then lenses (with filter - circ. pol.). And flash. That'd be the order I'd go in (and went in ...). Though my first and current tripod is a fairly sturdy $30 thing, I definitely need to upgrade that next.

    Go for a flash. I just got my 430EX II and it is an amazing improvement over the stupid pop up.
