Geez you guys have it bad at that stadium eh....
Play in a simulated football league - find great movies and TV shows - play Werewolf - play video games (try our Minecraft server) - argue about politics - listen to music - keep up with science news - play board games - just gasbag - discuss true crime - and so much more.
Spend the money on a 70-200 f2.8.I do have a question though.
I'll be turning 21 at the start of next year and as such, the parents will probably give me a couple of grand, which (at this stage) I'm thinking of spending on camera gear. As above, I only have the camera (Canon 1100D), the 18-55mm kit lens, and a 70-300mm lens.
A decent tripod is on the cards (if I go for a Manfrotto, I'm expecting this to be at least a couple of hundred bucks) and I don't have a flash (external) so that's probably worth looking at. I'm pretty happy with my telephoto lens, so I wouldn't really consider upgrading that.
So, given that I'm happy to take photos of pretty much anything, what would the resident photography experts recommend?
I've kind of dabbled in quite a few things, rather than 'specialising'. I'd like to do a bit more night photography, which is why I was thinking of getting a tripod.Spend the money on a 70-200 f2.8.
Tripods are great, but you'll find you won't need it as much for a lot of work.
Also what are you shooting mainly?

Wonderful photos. ShinbonerBaz Look at theseI have a Canon 1100D (along with the 18-55mm kit lens). Became more interested in photography last year, so I purchased a 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM.
It took me quite a while to actually put in the effort to find out how ISO/aperture/shutter speed interact, so that I could start using manual mode. Admittedly, I still find myself taking advantage of auto if I'm really in a rush to get a photo, but I certainly have a better understanding of how my camera works now.
These are probably the better photos I've taken (yes, some are in auto).
I do have a colour version of this one, but I think I prefer the B/W.
Tough. Photography is such an expensive hobby, and unfortunately, it costs money to get good stuff.sooo, I'm trying to think of a good Christmas present for my stepmother, who is a pretty good amateur photog (she's shown at a few exhibitions in Japan etc). Any ideas? I have about $100-150 to spend, so not a huge budget.
These are really good ........... but couldn't see any flies ........ You should take more photos .
Does she have a favourite camera shop? Photographers are usually fairly picky about the gear they want. A gift voucher to put towards something she wants might be the answer.sooo, I'm trying to think of a good Christmas present for my stepmother, who is a pretty good amateur photog (she's shown at a few exhibitions in Japan etc).
