    Okay, wtf is with the new layout

    Anybody else notice that the ad is slowing down the the ability to scroll down the page. As soon as the ad appears on the screen scrolling slows way down. Im going back to the old format.

    Lens suggestions?

    The OP is asking what she can get for $300-$400 range. I dont think a $1000 lens is in her budget right now. Buy what you can afford and upgrade in a couple years if you want.

    "Image Quality": JPEG normal vs. JPEG fine

    Thanks for the input Sabbath, Now that I know when to use RAW and JPEG I think it would be beneficial just to leave it in JPEG+RAW, especially with the cost of 8gb cards dropping in price. I picked one up a couple months ago for $35. That is cheap insurance. Having options is good!

    "Image Quality": JPEG normal vs. JPEG fine

    Thanks as always Overread. Sooooooooooooo, sounds like I should use it as just another setting. Likley wont use RAW for say a Birthday party, but I should use RAW when I head up to the mountains.

    "Image Quality": JPEG normal vs. JPEG fine

    Not trying to jack this thread, just thought I would jump in. I am shooting JPEG fine because I want to learn photography first and have little interest in learning to edit. I am just starting to edit some images with PP and am happy for now.. Sounds like I should move to JPEG+RAW for future...

    Canon 50mm MK1

    Be patient and watch your local Craigslist ads for the MKI. In the last 2 months in Denver there has been half dozen ads for the MKI for about $50. I just got one for $45 in perfect condition.

    Free camera strap at smugmug

    Not really, they are the neoprene straps with anti-slip on one side. Same ones at the camera store for over $10.00 and they don't advertise your camera brand name. Over a thousand people on the other forum are very happy with them. Heck, just get one for a back up strap. Best part is the word FREE.
