I recently purchased a new camera

Post by InfantryVeteran » October 23rd, 2014, 5:26 pm

I recently picked up a Canon Rebel T3i and I love it! I only have the standard lens at this point, but I am planning on getting a macro lens soon.

I'm not very proficient at editing my images yet, but I'm working on it!

Here are a few photos I've taken recently.

You made a good choice on cameras. I love the T3i's moveable LCD screen.

You guys are braver than I.
I chose the T2, and had a choice, because I knew I'd knock that moveable screen right off the camera! :lol:


You've proven your camera already, Solomon, with such a tiny Ring-necked.

Bill, I have the T2 as well, they came out with the T3i like a month after I got mine. Not complaining, I love my camera - but the moveable LCD is a desirable trait (I guess if you don't knock it off!)

I agree totally. You guys are just probably kinder, gentler photographers! :)

My dSLR has a moveable screen, and honestly I rarely use it. The viewfinder is an actual viewfinder, unlike the ones I've had on digital point and shoots. On those occasions when I do use the screen, it is nice to have some flexibility. It also protects the screen - when I'm not using it I keep it flipped around and tucked inside.


I would say your pics look great. That ringer is adorable. A good macro lens will be fun too. I'm loving the one I have.

Very nice shots. I just got a Tokina 100mm 2.8 macro lens and its awesome and not very expensive. On sharpness reviews it outscores almost all the top name brands. Check the AF though. It doesn't work on some lower end model cameras. From what ive read most people manually focus with macro anyway. Its less the 400 bucks new.
