    And this one. I have cropped this snap down a bit.

    And another taken less than five minutes ago using my tripod and on AV mode Manual. I have a lot to learn about photography.

    I don't think I ever posted this one. I'm sure everyone has at least one of these, mirror self portrait.

    So, why do I have such a giddy look on my face you may ask? Well.. my wife was in the shower and I was trying to be sneaky. :laugh:

    And, more PC hardware for the thread.

    Add me to the list, just picked up a Canon Rebel EOS t2i yesterday... Experience with them is very limited (yesterday and today) so far. This picture is my favorite I've shot so far, it's a side shot of my daughter pondering away.

    edit: Any lens suggestions you guys could suggest for a begginer? Are Tamron lenses comparable to Canon at all? Looking on amazon and some of the similar lenses are priced a lot cheaper, just wondering if they would be a decent enough quality for a beginner.

    Not sure if I had submitted any of these or not -oh well... here they are anyway! The picture of Fujisan was taken with my phone, while the others were taken with my Panasonic DMC-FZ18.

    Possible to get that first one in a higher res? would make for a nice wallpaper, say, 1920x1080?

    Are there any lens suggestions out there as a "good" cheap starter lens? The one that came with the camera is an 18-55mm with IS, I was looking at the 75-300mm cannon telephoto lens with USM or the 55-250mm with IS... Anyone have any experience with either of those lenses, and overall thoughts on them?

    Hey guys does anyone know if the Canon T1i or T2i will stream live? I'm debating a YT tech channel and thinking of adding a dimension by a live stream.

    Any thoughts? Other suggestions? I've looked at both of the Canon's specifically for nice lens alternatives(macro for upclose review work and tele for general zoom).

    Haven't seen this thread before... Very nice! I am a low level amateur... Have Olympus SP800UZ
    Comes with [ib] software, that looks nice but... Do you recommend it or is it just free rubbish?

    Hey, noticed your posts got ignored so I thought I'd help! :toast:

    Heres a rather good review of the T2i:

    http://www.cameralabs.com/reviews/Canon_EOS_550D_Rebel_T2i/


    Nice video review here too:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xpxqF5YuNQc


    There is a kit lens, 18-135mm lens that took some pretty decent shots in that review. I think I'm gonna start with that kit lens and go to a nice 60-100mm macro lens when I'm ready.

    Have you used the software at all? The video review shows some pretty cool interface w/it.

    Have been taking pictures of them all this week at my parent's house in Sun Lakes, AZ. Tried many different settings and took a lot of pictures to end up with just a couple I like. We don't have them in Alaska, but I will try to get some nice pics of eagles when I get back home:)

    Might it be a BMW??? Can't wait:)
