    First time posting photos - C&C please

    Well, not technically my first time, but I don't count those pictures of that lizard from some months back. Anyway, here are a few shots that I showed off to my Basic Digital Photography for DSLRs class that I just completed. I felt the class was definately worth the money (US$80) and it...

    Which tripod for $150

    Ok, so I asked for thoughts on the Gorillapod and realized that it not good for what I want to do. So I have decided to spend a little more money on a tripod. I don't have a ton but I figure that $150 will buy me a decent pod and head and it should serve me well for a few years. I would like...

    Gorillapod SLR-Zoom?

    So I'm going on vacation in about 3 weeks to San Francisco and will be spending 4 days in Yosemite. I want to take my tripod with me (cheap one that I've had for a while) but it is just too big. We will be doing quite a bit of hiking and the thought of having to lug that thing the whole time...

    eBay filters any good?

    Hey all, I'm trying to expand my equipment list and was looking at filters on eBay. I have seen filter prices at places such as B&H and they are prohibitively expensive right now. But on eBay I have seen "kits" that include a UV, a flourescent and a circular polarizer for around $20 - $25...

    SD Card suggestions?

    Hey all, This is probably a stupid question but, does anyone have a recommendation for a high capacity SD card for the Nikon D80? I just got the camera about a month and I can already tell that the 2 gb card I have just won't be enough for some situations. Like I said, probably a stupid...

    Buying DSLR, go new or used

    I was on B&H today and noticed that they have D80's new for $874 (body only, I already have a couple of lenses) or used for $774. So my question is this...Is it worth the extra $100 to buy new or is used equipment from a reputable company a good deal? I figure that if I save the $100 on...

    Hey all, I'm new to the site and have absolutely fallen in love with some of your photos. It has gotten me all geeked up about buying a new camera. Currently I have a Nikon N60 with Tamron 28-105mm 1:4-5.6 and a Nikkor 70-300 1:4-5.6G lens. I really like the camera but it is not digital...
