I have a canon 1100D, and i am serious about photography. now should i upgrade to a better body and then start developing on lenses or should i first get a few lenses and then buy a better body? i first want a 50mm 1.8f lens. so will this give good results with a 1100D ? or should i get a better body ? thanks!
there's no sense in upgrading your equipment till you figure out what your needs are, and that will happen by taking more photos, working when you shoot them to get the results you want, and then learning what it takes to get that result. read and learn, watch youtube and other videos explaining the basics and less basic factors involved in photography. learn about aperture, shutter speed, ISO - how changing each affects your photos. check out photography books and see whose photos speak to you, which ones influence you. you could spend a LOT of money and still not have the equipment that will work for you. price doesn't mean much - there are $1500 lenses that won't get me the shots i want, yet there are $300 lenses that will. learn what kind of shots you want to take, what you need to know or use to get them and go from there. the canon 50 1.8 is great - a really good value, and a good way to learn about faster lenses, as well as to shoot in lower light. and considering the ...

The 1100D is a perfectly good DSLR and you do need to develop not just by getting lenses but more so by developing your knowledge of and use of technique in photography. The 50mm f1.8 is a very good lens, however it's not clear you need that particular lens. Personally I find it a great focal length, but I'm not sure you understand why you would want one. I think what you probably need first and foremost is a good book on basic photography technique. There's a book called "Understanding Exposure" by Brian Peterson which is widely recommended.

You don't need new body for now.. 1100D is pretty decent for a start(or even further). If you'd like to get 50mm f1.8 lens then get it, because this lens is affordable while it provide you good result. This lens is also fit other Canon DSLR in case you'd like to upgrade to a better body.. so your investment is safe. In the mean time, start shooting and reading more about photography or take class... by then, you'll understand the limitation of the camera and the lens so in the future you can decide if you need new body or other lens to suit your need.

Cannon 1100D Remote
Ok, So I'm looking for a remote for my Cannon EOS 1100D. I didn't really know much about the camera when I bought it, just that I had fried my point-and-shoot in Ireland, and this one was on sale. I'd been thinking about getting a DSLR for a while, so I went for it. Now that I'm starting to use it more and more, I'd like to have a remote for it, especially since I have a portable tripod and I travel a lot- I never seem to be in any of the pictures. I'm hoping a remote will fix this. Ideally, I'd like a wireless one, but I don't know if that's possible for this camera model. I know a lot of the Rebel things work on this camera, but I didn't know if it would be the same way with a remote- since that's a bit more technical. Is there a wireless remote to use with the Cannon EOS 1100D? If not, what's the most reliable remote, and are there any with long cords?
there are a more than a few remote triggers for the 1100d, canon-brand and third-party, wireless and wired ... canon's rs-60-e3 ($20) is the wired remote ... the cable is 24 inches -- not long enough for typical self shots ... there are many off-brand versions of the wired remote ... vello's cable is 32 inches long and it costs $8 ... you could probably ebay a no-name chinese-made version for even less ... in my opinion, a wired remote is not an important enough part to worry about brand-name reliability ... you could hook the camera up to a laptop and trigger with the pre-packaged canon software ... cable length depends on the user ... canon does not make a specific wireless remote for the 1100d, but plenty of other companies make wireless triggers that can trigger both flashes and cameras ... some radio triggers like pocketwizard plus x cost $100 each (you would need 2 to work) ... a very inexpensive and reliable radio trigger is the yongnuo rf-603II ... powered by AAA batteries ...

I use the tiny Canon RC-6. It is very small and fits pockets or camera bags with ease. It is easy to take along with you regardless of if you plan on using it. I have taken pictures of myself with it but more often use it to avoid moving the camera by pressing the shutter. Helpful for longer shutter times. The RC-6 can instantly trip the shutter or use a delay timer depending on the RC-6's switch setting. You should be able to find your camera on the Canon website and check which accessories are compatible. See if the RC-6 is listed. Also, the RC-6 is cheap. Continue Reading
Old mid level or new entry level?
Hello, I'm thinking of buying a dslr as a second body and I'm on a budget, so I was wondering what would be a better decision, to buy a used mid level dslr like Nikon D80, or a new entry level like D3100, or even Canon 1100D? What are your thoughts on that?
If you're going with older mid-level, you'd be better off with a D70s: the D80 matrix meter is infuriating. I got rid of my D80 because of that. The D90 might be a better choice than either the D70s or D80 depending on your budget. Continue Reading
According to your gear list, you're using Olympus. Why on earth would you wanna invest in a Nikon/Canon system then??? Continue Reading
Yes, I'm using Olympus as my main camera, but I'm going to need a second body - nothing too fancy, but something with good performance, that can be trusted, and cheap. Of course the perfect scenario would be to have an Olympus, or Panasonic camera to match the system, but unfortunately there's nothing within my budget that meets my requirements. That's why I thought about buying some good used dslr. Continue Reading
