Hey guys, i am sincerely looking at the canon rebel 300d slr but i want to do my research beforehand (obviously) so i get the most bang for the buck! I think it would be a cook post to see what different photographers/videographers shoot with ( ie lens, camera, cf cards, all of the major stuff that inhances your pics) and how much and also to see some of your best pics! SO I'LL START OFF <BR> right now i own a canon gl2 paid 3gs for it and a bunch of other things off ebay. A perdy good videocamera (3ccd)and what not. I am also really intereested in buying the rebel <BR> <BR> travis

well i have a Nikon D70 which was 1300 with the lense and a sigma 70-200 which was 750 i beleive. I also have quite abit of memory cards which in all prob costed me like 500. I also have the SB800 which was like 330. plus extras like battereies and that kinda stuff. so thats about 3000 but i also bought that stuff over the past few years the newest being the nikon camera. I also have a sony TVR 950 which was 2300 from ebay with other kinda stuff so that comes around to about 5000 in total. wuite abit for that kinda stuff.

pyrosmurf 04-19-2004 6:24 AM

PAL version of the GL1. <BR> <BR>I'm quite a fan of your setup. <BR>I'm stuggling with a good wide angle solution at the moment. My 24-85 is a piece of crap, and I hardly use it. <BR> <BR>A 17-40 would be nice, but I have an addiction to fast glass. It also depends on whether I grab a 1D in the future or not. I can't stand this 1.6x crop.

isler 04-19-2004 11:17 AM

Josh, the 17-40 is actually a really nice lens... I've used it a little bit, and it's just as good quality as the 2.8, 'cept you're losing 1 stop. Chances are you'll never use that last 1 stop for wakeboard stuff anyway... <BR> <BR>I'm also going to abstain from posting the gear list here, since I don't need someone to come by my area and rob me blind =) <BR> <BR>Mike

richd 04-19-2004 11:52 AM

Mike: <BR> <BR>I was dreading reading your equipment list when I saw you posted! :-) <BR> <BR>Josh: <BR> <BR>17mm seems plenty wide with a 1.3 crop to me. I toyed with getting a 12-24 sigma but at f4.5 to 5.6 (I think) it did seem like that might be too slow. Now seeing shots at 17mm I'm glad I didn't. The 17-40 is a nice carry around lens and works well with my Kenko 1.4X (I still have center AF and f4 with it), which gives me a bit more range. The quality doesn't suffer much with the Kenko either (another "cheaper than Canon" item which has gotten great reviews!) On a 10d with 1.6 the 17-40 might not be wide enough but I think you need to think along the lines of how your lens will work on a 1.3 crop or full frame body down the road! <BR> <BR>I looked hard at the 24-70 f2.8 L but decided it just looked too big and clunky for general use. The 50 prime gives me a fast lens for interior type shots without flash. So for a limited budget I think I've got things somewhat covered. I'd like to get a 300 or 400mm L IS and a 2X TC next.

garrett_cortese 04-19-2004 12:38 PM

Mike, I already robbed you blind...then I threw it out 'cause it was Nikon...

richd 04-19-2004 2:20 PM

hahahahaha! <BR> <BR>Now Mike should come back with something about how easy it was for you to toss because of how much lighter Nikon equipment is . . . . . . <BR> <BR>You note he made a nice comment about the 17-40!

garrett_cortese 04-19-2004 2:30 PM

Rich-- <BR>There's a lot of Canon equipment Mike wishes would have a Nikon label slapped on it: 1DMKII, 85 f1.2, 200 f1.8, 400 f4 DO... <BR> <BR>Of course, there's a lot of equipment with "Mike Isler" slapped on it that I wish said "Garrett Cortese," so I guess we're even...

04-19-2004 6:55 PM

no , actually this gives me a great idea on what other people use,then i can ask ques and research it and then figure out what i wanna buy. for instance.... wats the differenc (price/quality) in the 1d vs 10d (canon), wats a pal ?? I now have learned that NIKON BLOWS <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/rofl.gif" border=0> and wat does all that crap about 1.3 crop mean!!!!!?????? thanks travi

richd 04-19-2004 7:19 PM

Without getting too technical the crop factor is a magnification factor due to the sensors in the digital cameras being smaller than a 35mm film frame. When you hear about a 1.3 crop that means the image is magnified 1.3 X and cropped as well to the equivalent of 1.3 times the focal length of the lens. So a 100mm telephoto on a full film frame becomes 130mm telephoto on a 1D or a 160mm on a 10d/Rebel. It's great if all you're shooting is telephoto. The problem starts when you want wide angle. You need very small WA lens's to get even normal perspective on a 1.6 crop factor digital cam. I'll let Mike or Garrett give you the full technical lowdown if they want to get into a lengthy explanation. <BR> <BR>PAL is the european video standard vs NTSC is in America/Japan. Pal video won't play back on our sets and vice versa.

Seems like it's my turn to pee in this little competition of ours... and Mike, I don't know what you're talking about with my white lenses... you know what I really use to make my wakeboarding images... <BR> <BR>-Kodak FunSaver Outdoor disposable camera w/ flash <BR>-Kodak Water &amp; Sport disposable camera for tube shots <BR>-a pinhole camera created out of empty toilet paper tubes for the artistic shots <BR>-sometimes I use a camera phone for lifestyle pics <BR>-when these options aren't readily available during a photo shoot, I break out my crayons and draw... <BR> <BR>If you have any questions, just check out this article: <BR><a href="http://wakeboarder.com/display.phtml?a=553" target="_blank">http://wakeboarder.com/display.phtml?a=553</a> <BR> <BR>Best, <BR>Garrett <BR> <BR>Garrett Cortese Photography <BR><a href="http://www.gacphotos.com" target="_blank">www.gacphotos.com</a>
