    need help...Canon Digi Rebel.

    :lol: Actually, that's not an easy thing to do without breaking something! I remember ppl would write in with some errors with the Digital Rebel, usually it was caused by mounting the lens incorrectly or something like that which for some reason had a lasting effect.

    Did you happen to take a photo from the other side with the sun to your back?

    ^ fair enough. I still like the photo though. :)

    June '06 Photo Challenge Theme - "Bugs"

    ^ I think 150kb should be ample for an 800x600 image.

    Grasshopper on a Rose

    ^ heh, well it's about personal preference :) I think what I meant is to give the photo more "pop" by increasing the saturation, not by adding more colourful stuff.

    Grasshopper on a Rose

    Great shot! As mentioned early, the FOV is excellent.. but I'd bump up the colours a bit.

    Help needed with my minolta dynax 404/maxxum 4 + 28-80mm +75-300 +tamron 2x

    As in how their prices, selection and quality compare with their Nikon & Canon counterparts.

    The poolhall

    Long exposures would be very difficult with a Lensbaby. It would be REALLY cool if the baby had some sort of locking system once you've found what you're looking for.

    If you do end up going with the Rebel XT, skip on the 18-55 kit lens... seriously EVERYBODY complains about it. Mike is right though, it's really up to the user (YOU!) how the camera feels. I have small hands, the XT is great for me, just like how the Maxxum 5 was tiny. The controls should be...

    My first wedding and Uncle Tony (a short story)

    You could try "accidently" bouncing the flash off Uncle Tony's cornea. That should keep him busy for a while. :lol:

    Help needed with my minolta dynax 404/maxxum 4 + 28-80mm +75-300 +tamron 2x

    My kit originally cost me $699 + taxes, the camera and two lens. You're more than welcome to price it out. You can probably get more than my $200 quote but I dunno.

    Help needed with my minolta dynax 404/maxxum 4 + 28-80mm +75-300 +tamron 2x

    I hate to say it, but I have a Maxxum 5 with the Minolta 28-80 and 75-300mm lens and I ended up just holding onto it instead of getting what little money I could from selling it on e-Bay... which is probably somewhere around $200. I too was contemplating selling it to raise some dough for the Rebel.

    How Do They Do That !

    Please forgive my stupidity, but where can you submit photos on Corbis or GettyImages?

    Minolta Maxxum 5d

    Yeah, I think trying to fill-flash might be a good option to try.
