    Do you use any lens? Or picture that I could see for the quality?

    I know that all these camera are really nice, but I still enjoy seeing examples :)

    Thanks

    Just a btw - every DSLR uses a lens ;) Without a lens, you can't shoot!

    Oh sorry. I should clarify. Any special type of lens that you bought outside of the kit that they usually sell with the camera?

    Lol I know that feeling. Nice picture. How did you get your dog (?) to stand still. I'm so jealous of anybody that can take an amazing picture of their dog.

    As for lens I think I'll be picking up a prime lens first then going from there.

    Thanks.
    The last time I picked up a camera was awhile (think yrs) ago when I finally picked up my uncle's camera for a trial I felt so lost :violent084:

    I'm confused. You can't take pictures without using a lens. What do you mean? :confused:

    In my opinion the best mode for action shots is aperture priority mode. You can set the ISO and aperture and it will pick a shutter speed for you. If you're in low light it will be hard to get action shots but in good lighting aperture priority should help you get good ones :)

    Well every camera has lens. (I don't think she meant those that you can buy to add onto the camera)

    In broad day light, the best setting for fast dogs and action shots is shutter priority. Crank the shutter speed up, set iso, and click click click. That's my OPINION. You will take a lot less blurry pictures this way

    Don't haves to worry about tracking the subject to prevent motion blur.

    Full manual mode you noobs :p....best mode for all situations...

    Blah. I can do it. But my cheap lenses have limits. Can't really get what I want out of manual

    The more limitations your gear has, the more useful manual mode is. If i had top of the line gear, i would be comfortable with trusting my camera to leave it in semi-manual mode. But the camera processer generally does not make the most efficient use of your hardware, especially lenses and external flashes, not too big of a issue with high end gear.

    But if you have the mid-low end stuff, your better off being in manual, you will be slower, and it takes more practice, but over time, you will develop skills where you can just scan your surrounding and you should get a good idea where your settings need to be.

    Haha yeah I meant the lenses you can purchase separately to put on your camera not the stock one. Sorry I'm still in the learning phase of photography so I don't know the proper lingo haha. I'm enjoying reading this thread though.

    For action shots, you'll probably want a 70-200mm, either the f/4 or f/2.8 version. That is what the vast majority of sport and dog show photographers use. I love love love mine! Use it for most of my portraits too.

    When I first got my camera I used full manual mode 100% of the time and it helped me learn a lot about my camera. But I like aperture priority mode now. It's a lot more laid back and it works well for me since I go between shade and direct sunlight a lot. :)

    I shoot in AV mode and have no issue telling people that ;) It does exactly what I need it to do and gives me the control over what I want to have control over.

    Looks like a good deal to me!

    The price is good, especially with two lenses. For a kit lens, the 18-55mm lens is really sharp, and its one of the better lenses for macro, if you dont have a dedicated macro lens.
