Steve –

Can you walk me through making a user gallery?  I’d like to post some images.

Thank you

Rick

 

Rick –

A useful tutorial is something I should have provided for our users a long time ago.  Thank you for the kick in the pants.  Please follow this link to the new tutorial  I just put up and I think you’ll find it makes creating galleries easy.

Thanks Rick

Steve

Greetings Steve!

I wanted to give you time to get settled before I wrote to you.  Hope things are well with you in your new location.

Need a recommendation again on a DSLR camera and lens.  For the daughter to take pictures of her new son, my grandson.  Budget = $825. Preference is a Canon.  As I recall you said the pkg'd 18-55mm lens is lackluster.  Any sound recommendations within this $825 budget?  Thoughts?

Standing by.  Short fuse.  Thanks.

Michael

Hi Michael –

We’re getting dug in here but it’s a slow process.  Middle America is pretty vanilla.. but nice enough.  Being with my sons is great.

About the camera.  For $825 look at the newest T3i with the 18-55mm kit lens (okay, $899 but close). Since we last discussed cameras Canon has improved this lens and added IS and it’s really much better than before.  If you’re fairly sure your daughter will only use it as a point and shoot and not take advantage of the more advanced features or the 18mp (vs. 12mp) consider the T3 at $599 for the kit.

Are you sure she wants a DSLR?  Most rather have something of a smaller size like the Canon S95 or even the G12.. they care more about convenience than cutting edge image quality.

A note on the new 18-55 IS:  I haven’t personally used one, but several respectable reviewers have found it greatly improved.

Hope this helps

Steve
