    tips for action photography

    Thanks for the tips JeremyZ.So is manually focusing the preferred way?I have always used auto focus assuming than in AI Servo mode the camera will contiously keep focusing on a moving subject while I keep the shutter button 1/2 pressed.I can see where manually focusing and pre-focusing would...

    Losing image quality when resizing

    I am using Irfanview and they are jpeg.I have my camera set on image size "small" 1250x1475 or something like that and quality "fine".When I open the picture it comes up at the size it was shot at and really looks good.Then when I resize it down to 600x800 it just doesn't look near as good to...

    Aperture Priority AE or Shutter Priority AE

    This is a great thread!I have jumped in to the "manual" settings on my Canon now and i am soaking up all the info I can.One thing I have been doing is shooting in the "auto" settings and when I find pictures that I feel turned out exceptionally well,I look at the info for that particular...

    selecting af points

    After I made the post I was thinking that the more af points used when panning would probably be better due to the fact you have more points to cover the moving subject.Keep in mind I am still very new to manual settings on a camera and I have tons of questions :D Thanks for the reply.

    selecting af points

    For shooting moving objects such as a car is it best to have just the center af point selected or all 7 of them?I do alot of panning shots and was thinking maybe the autofocus would "pick up" the subject better by using only 1 af point.Is this correct?The camera is a Digital Rebel XT.

    Help me pick a lens

    Thanks for the replies.I do a fair amount of shooting without a tripod and after some thought and research,I think the 'bigma" may not be the best lens for me.I am pretty much looking at the Canon 70-200 "L" series 2.8 and the sigma 70-200 ex 2.8.What are your thoughts on which one would be a...

    I need some expert advice

    I have been looking to upgrade to a better lens for my Canon 350d.I have narrowed my choices down to the Canon 70-200 L series 2.8 and the Sigma 70-200 2.8 EX.I have read numerous reviews and it seems that the Sigma is the better deal because you are getting basically the same features for...
