    How do you take your coffee?

    Long black, extra shot. (That make it a triple) At home I use a locally roasted dark organic fairtrade blend called Oomph, freshly ground before making. The other option is a couple of cafes in town that do a Japanese Siphon.

    Rebel XT lens on the Rebel T3i

    I hear good things about the Canon 40mm f2.8 for video. It is supposed to have an ultra quiet autofocus which is better for video.

    Nikon D3100 flash won't pop up

    My daughter had this with her Canon 1100D (not from being dropped though.) Turned out there was a piece of crud stuck in the latch that was stopping it from releasing.

    T4i - is this a better camera than a point and shoot?

    I have a 600D (T3i I think) and find it great. But the best thing I did for my photography was join a club and let others see and comment on my work, and go to every tutorial session the club would run. My local club only has around 30 members, but there is a wealth of experience and people...
