In August, my wife and I will be going to New Mexico to visit some family. We're planning to do a day hike up a mountain and I was hoping to take my camera (Cannon T5 bundle), but I'm not sure what kind of gear would be nessisary/needed for a hike that wouldn't be too strenuous to take along. I am very new to photography and have a somewhat limited budget so I don't need anything too fancy, just anything that will make the hike easier, or help me get better photos.
I started with a Canon and an 18-55mm lens along the lines of this. Very user friendly and great quality pictures. Refurbished models in general are a great deal- what's more important is that you look into investing in lenses that you can use in the future.
I did some Amazoning before I posted. Amazon has a Canon Rebel T5 and two lenses going for $499.99.
Personally, I would recommend starting somewhere around this kind of DSLR that way you have some growing room!
Welcome to the photography club! It's a lot of fun and quite addicting!
Is the following bundle worth my time/money as a beginner? I've spent some time with my mothers Sony a580 and I really enjoy the feel and all of the options. Just looking for something comparable that isn't going to prevent me from feeding my family <_<
I have been researching cameras for a while now and ran across many that have looked good to me, in reality I know very little about them. My goal is to purchase one before the end of the year so I can become proficient enough to use the damned thing during my adventurous bus trip next summer. I would love any feedback I receive.
Ran across this deal most recently and it seems the most logical for my current needs (lots of landscape, tourism, and documenting trip)
my father owns an older model Canon and I have been lead to believe that some of his lenses would also fit this camera.
Should I purchase this for my first DSLR?
Does anyone have any feedback on this camera?
What about for night and macro shots. I know I wouldn't get a macro lens right away (I've looked at the prices, I know.) That being said, I know the T5 probably has much better ISO for night shot and much more manual control than my Powershot has. If I was interested in some of those, would it be a different question?
I guess I'm just trying to determine if it's worth the investment for me. This is the particular package I'm looking at. I know that extra lens is worth a decent amount on its own and having the better distance would be great for places like the zoo or other outdoor shots.
Sorry for the long diatribe, just really looking for good advice on this front.
On my continual quest to decide if a DSLR is right for me, I will ask the sameish question I've been asking (trying to gather as many opinions as possible.)
I'm debating this camera package. But, I'm not sure I'm ready for it. I'm currently using a powershot and I'm happy with some of my photos, but I do find it struggles in low-light conditions or when it's at its maximum zoom. (It's very grainy when at 54mm focal length.)
I know most of my shooting opportunities are likely within the range where my powershot works fine (moderate to good lighting, target between 1 and 10ft away). I guess the question is, would I appreciate the DSLR, would I use it, or would I squander its features. Should I try and expand my horizons using the powershot, or does it not feature enough manual settings for me to sink my teeth into?

My housemate bought a camera but received a different one
>Hi, I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this but I'm not sure where else to post it. My housemate recently bought a camera from somebody off of our college's craigslist page.
> The title says that it is a "Canon Rebel T5 Camera" but it is not, it is actually a Canan Rebel XS.
> The Rebel T5 looks like this: [link]
> and if you look at the camera from the facebook post, the logo is in the bottom right and says XS. He didn't realize until a few hours later that he'd been sold a different camera. When he tried to contact the seller she first said that she had sold him the correct camera, and later proceeded to block him on facebook. Is there anything my housemate can do to try and get his money back, or is he out of luck?
Which of these would you recommend?
I am not looking to do any specific type of photography at the moment. However, down the road I may get into some very basic macro. /shrug
I'm sorry I can't really give any more information, for I am just about as new to this as you can be.
I'd recommend you look online, someone else lined to a similar deal for a Canon camera in this thread and its worth a look.
Found this deal on amazon today. I have never bought a nice camera before. Is this a good deal for an intro set?
Hello, DSLR experts!
I need some help. I'm looking to get a good DSLR kit (with a bunch of stuff in it) for filming product reviews, and I have found some on Amazon that seem decent. My budget is around $500. Do you think any of the below are worth looking into, or is there a better kit with a bunch of stuff out there?
I'm not a photographer and no nothing about DSLRs, and will only use it for a variety of personal videos and some photos of products indoors and outdoors.
Here are some of those I was looking at (non-aff links):
Sorry cant remember where i found it
I am looking into getting a camera for amateur photography. I am looking to get either the Canon Rebel T5 or the Canon Rebel SL1. Can anybody explain to me the main differences between the two cameras and why the SL1 is older, but more expensive.
I'm considering getting this camera set: Link
I currently have a Canon Powershot ELPH 350 and I'm not sure if I should or need to upgrade. I was reading that thread on "it's not the tools it's the photographer" and it definitely gave me some food for thought, but wasn't definitive when it came to snap-and-go vs DSLR cameras for beginners. Here's some photos I've been taking Link. Based on all this, would it be wise to upgrade, is it worth it for me?
Will I be more pleased with my own photos if I upgrade and will the DSLR give me versatility I don't currently have?
