    shooting action seq. in low light conditions?

    shutter speed was around 80 to 300 cuz i had to change it constantly. if iso 1600 is not good, which should i use? i read in manual in low light we should increase iso?

    shooting action seq. in low light conditions?

    it was near dusk at a local ski resort and i was trying to shoot some snowboarder doing tricks. 40d in manual model, iso 1600, fast shutter & spot metering. pics get kinda dark. i'd like to use faster shutter speed but everything would be black over 500. slower shutter speed and everything's...

    Canon EOS-1 from 97, worth much?

    hi since i got the 40d im thinking about selling my dad's eos-1 after i get his permission. just like to find out what its worth today. how much was it when it came out? the cam still works great, my dad shot many rolls a month ago. the mirror may be a little dirty, so i will clean it out soon...

    why does canon use CF cards?

    i noticed the 40d uses CF, its so much bigger than SD or those memory sticks of the same capacity. what stops canon from using these physically smaller memory cards?

    pics from old lens not as good as new lens?

    hi i took some pics using my dad's 10 yr old 28-70mm L lens, then this 17-85mm lens that comes with my 40d as one packages. i noticed the new lens brings out the color better than the old one. what gives?

    How do I convince my wife I need the A-700?

    tell the wife when you get the cam you will take hot and sexy pics of her. make her your model. being a model are many women's fantasy, i think.

    must i turn off DSLR every time when i change lens?

    my 40d manual does not say. all it shows is how to mount / detach the lens. doesnt say turning off cam or leave it on. can other 40d owners plz confirm?

    must i turn off DSLR every time when i change lens?

    yeah i use a card read as well, its because its alot easier to get pics off the card. as for the format your card everytime you pull pics off, wow that's a bit excessive. removes additional risk? like what? computer virus? lol

    must i turn off DSLR every time when i change lens?

    i did it twice so far cuz i forgot to turn off my 40d. i noticed once i remove lens i think the camera knows cuz i saw the B&W mini LCD turned off when i did that. when i mount the lens again the mini LCD screen turned back on. im sure a company that makes a thousand dollar DSLR would at least...

    grrr... my canon 40d's "set" button is upside down.

    i may be nitpicking a bit too much but i noticed the "set" button at the center of the rotary selection dial is upside down. should i be asking for an exchange? i know this may sound really silly, sry.
