    Help Me Decide..(Prices)

    So today I went to Best Buy and got to hold the T2i, 60D and 7D. I like everything about the T2i except the toy camera feeling. But I do know it can take exceptional photos when paired with a nice lens too. The 60D, I really like everything EXCEPT the screen. I just don't like the articulating...

    Is this right? 60D comparison..

    Disclaimer: I'm not familiar with DSLRs, I'm only familiar with my film SLR and manual focus. AF is completely new to me.. 1. I'm deciding between the T2i and 60D STILL.:thumbdown: I thought I was fixed on the 60D until apparently on Best Buy through the comparison button, the 60D only goes up...

    Negative Scanner?! ._.

    Please don't be alarmed at my block-'o'-text! Stay. (: Okay. So I'm mainly a film shooter, and the way I 'digitize' my film work is by scanning the prints, so scanning negatives are unfamiliar territory to me. I've always heard about negative scanners and such, but never paid much mind to it...

    Photographers for reference?

    For the next three months I'm going to be working on a photo project with the theme of 'Teenagers', I want to try and make it environmental as well, but not entirely so.

    :confused: I just noticed that the T1i isn't thaaat expensive, for some reason I thought it was like $1,000. I want the canon 50mm 1.8, so just assume I'm talking body only right now. I might get the kit lens but...:er: Besides the T1i being an 'upgrade' compared to the xsi/xti [both of which I...

She says the...

    B&W Film Lighting Questions (:

    1. I know about bouncing light off white walls/ceilings to soften the light. And I know that bouncing it off colored walls/ceilings can color cast, but what about in B&W film? I'm going to be shooting a bedroom portrait series as an all-semester assignment and I'll be using tri-x 400 pulled to...
