Canon Normal EF 50mm f/1.8 II Autofocus Lens

Feb 22, 2008 04:55 PM EDT

This low priced lens is very nice and you can't beat the price. Most amateur photographers will enjoy this lens. The auto focus is very fast, but sometimes you have to refocus like with most auto focusing lenses. The photos come out very sharp as with any 50mm lens. It is also great when taking photos in low light. After using this lens and seeing how nice the photos are you will want to get...

Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT (350D)

Feb 21, 2008 09:00 PM EDT

I bought a Canon Rebel XT (350D) when I was in Australia and had 'mislaid' my Canon 300D (long story!). It came as a kit, with EFS 18-55mm and EF 75-300mm lens. The 350D is slightly smaller than the 300D, so it's easier for me to hold. Most of the features are the same as the 300D, although there is a setting to take black and white photo's. The camera is very user friendly and i...

Canon PowerShot G3

Feb 19, 2008 12:39 AM EDT

The Canon Power Shot G3 is a very nice top end digital point and shoot camera. It's a great backup camera that is easy to carry around and it fits in most larger jacket pockets. It is a tad slow when using the auto focus but with a little practice you get use to that. It has all of the setting that you get with a DSLR and you can even buy a lens adapter and get different lenses for it. Findi...

Canon 430EX Speedlite E-TTL II Shoe-Mount Flash

Feb 01, 2008 09:26 PM EDT

This is a pretty good flash. For relatively close in shots, this flash is excellent. It is far superior to the built-in flash, and gives the operator a great deal of versatility in shooting. At this time, I am thinking I want a stronger flash for certain settings so I might upgrade to the 580II, but for someone just starting out, this flash will more than do the trick. My only reservation about...

Canon Zoom Wide Angle-Telephoto EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM Autofocus Lens Review

Feb 01, 2008 09:20 PM EDT

Outstanding walk-around lens. Works well in almost all environments. This is the kit lens on the 5D, but I use it on a 20D. Despite the required adjustment for the 1.6x lens factor, the lens still is a dream to use. It has a really balanced range between wide angle and telephoto. It produces sharp images, it's quiet, easy to use, and light enough to carry around all day. I give it my highest...

Canon Zoom Wide Angle-Telephoto EF 28-105mm f/4-5.6 USM Autofocus Lens

Feb 01, 2008 05:34 PM EDT

I used this lens for a while before I upgraded to a Canon L lens. This little guy is a step up from the 18-55mm kit lens that I got with my 20D. They no longer offer that as a kit lens because it was pretty lame. This lens, by contrast, is a real step up. It is solid, quiet and takes good images. If you are looking for an inexpensive general use lens, this lens might be the one for you

Canon Zoom Telephoto EF 70-200mm f/4.0L USM Autofocus Lens

Feb 01, 2008 05:11 PM EDT

I would recommend this lens to anyone who is looking for an all purpose telephoto lens. I generally use this lens for wildlife and some landscape photography. I have occasionally used this lens for newspaper submissions of local events. It is a real trooper and I have put it through its paces. I give it a "good" rating because Canon's f/2.8 IS lens variant is clearly superior. But...

Canon Zoom Wide Angle-Telephoto EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM Autofocus Lens

Jan 09, 2008 01:23 PM EDT

Review by Pinetree3 I used this lens for a couple of months. When I purchased the lens, I was looking for a state of the art mid-range lens. The lens has an excellent optical and build quality. The photographic quality of the images I took with the lens were simply stunning. It met, even exceeded my expectations. So, why don't I own the lens anymore? It has more to do with me and my style of...

Canon EOS 20D Camera Review

Jan 08, 2008 04:37 PM EDT

Review by Solaria This camera has been discontinued for a while, and due to the life span of digital cameras, I wouldn't recommend buying one used (unless it was completely overhauled) but this has been a good little camera for me. Never locked up, never shut down, never failed to focus, meter or release the shutter when I asked it to. I've had it for some time now and couldn't imagi...

Nikon D200 Camera Review

Jan 07, 2008 02:18 PM EDT

Review by Sgbrown This is a superb camera. The large number of buttons can be daunting at first, but you soon realize that buttons are a lot easier to find and press than having to dig down through a complex set of menus! All the most needed settings are available directly without menus - including ISO speed, white balance, bracketing options, exposure compensation, single or continuous exposure...
