    Sigma 24-70mm aspherical lens in Pentax mount - Crissytal $10

    This is a sweet little lightweight lens. This is a full frame auto focus lens from the grand era of film but with the 1.5x crop factor of a Pentax DSLR this lens is the perfect range for a variety of portraits from full body to just head shots. Bidding to start at $10.00 and I will pay...

    Canon loyalty program...

    Crissy told me about this a couple years ago and I was telling someone else about it just now in an email.... It's not mentioned anywhere on their webpage, but Canon has a loyalty program. They will accept any junk Canon camera (film or digi) as a trade in and give you 20% off a currently...

    Tank Ceph 2 Growth Point Picture - Focus Stacked

    I've got a new DSLR and been experimenting with focus stacking. I have a LOT to learn yet but thought I'd show one of my early attempts. Please feel free to comment on whatever you think I have got wrong with the photograph, as I need all the advise I can get.

    Camera time, Help

    My trust Canon G9 is starting to die one me. It may not go today, tomorrow or even next week. But go soon it will. So I am looking for suggestions for a replacement. Now to make it easier on everyone let me make it clear that I already own a DSLR system, nor am I interested in a tiny sensor...

    New camera, new skillz... some interesting shots. (Thanks for looking!)

    I'd love to get some constructive criticism. I took a DSLR photography course and would certainly value some input from people who've been doing photography for some time. Tell me if they see anything where I can improve my photography skills.

    Venusian Eclipse 2012! RARE!

    Hello TF This year, on this day (if you have clear skies) you get to experience something that won't happen till 2117! Every hundred or so years venus goes in front of the sun and can be seen with a big camera lens (about 300 mm) or with a telescope. I highly suggest that you do whatever you...

    My company has bought a flash for my camera

    Our annual work holiday party is coming up soon and the various department heads started complaining that our building never has any event pictures up on the company website like our sister buildings do. Events like Family Day, Summer picnics, etc. These events, like the holiday party are held...

    Hoh Rain Forest, Washington [Picture HEAVY]

    Last summer, my wife and I went on a trip to Washington. One of the things we did was visit the Hoh Rain Forest. There was a trail called the "Hall of Mosses." Had to take that, I have a thing for mosses. But, anyway, I figured I'd share some pictures since I know more than a couple people of...

    which entry level dslr macro lens?

    Looking at these two sub 300$ Macro lenses 1. Canon EF 50mm f/2.5 Macro 2. Sigma 50mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro Both seem to be good choices in this price range. The Canon is a little cheaper with better glass (maybe?)... but an older motor design and 1:2. Sigma is 1:1 but maybe not as sharp and...

    End of June Sarracenia

    Snapped some photos this evening. Still can't figure out how to get higher quality pics, this DSLR camera is too fancy for me. It would probably help if I took photos during the day and not 8 pm, but that's my only free time. This is one of Bob Ziemer's unknown hybrids. Not sure which one...
