Pingback: 2014 Jeff Sinon Photography Calendars Are Ready | Jeff Sinon Photography - Nature Through The Lens
Hi there, Jeff – sent you an email through this contact form… did you get it okay?
Not as of yet. When did you send it? My inbox is nuts, and I’m about to go look for it in the trash, just in case I accidentally deleted it.
Sent yesterday, maybe early afternoon?
Hmmm, please try again. I just tried it and it appears to work fine, and I received the email almost instantaneously
Just tried again…fingers crossed
Yay, it worked! Reply shortly. Though you’ll notice I’ve already “Followed” ;-)
Stopping by to seek some help as I have finally decided to buy my SLR and now confused between 2 models and which Lens to start with.
Hope you can help me in choosing….let me know if i’ll put details here or as a mail using this contact form…
thanks in advance…
Let me know what bodies and lenses you’re looking at, and most importantly, what you like to photograph. I would also like to ask, do you REALLY need a DSLR? I only ask because I get asked the “what camera should I buy” question a lot. And with a little digging I find that about half the people would be better off with something like one of the Canon G Series cameras, like the newest model the G-16 http://bit.ly/1gfURZk These little beauties have the ability for full manual control, in a package you can fit in your pocket. I have a friend that shoots with a G12, and her photos are every bit as good as mine. And she’s not lugging around nearly as much weight.
That being said, I wouldn’t give up my DSLR for anything. I like the flexibility having interchangeable lenses gives me.
So, let me know what you’re looking at, and I’ll help if I can.
Thanks a lot Jeff for your response.
1. First thing I am looking at Canon EOD 60D and EF-S 18-55mm IS Lens kit priced at 43K INR (equal to 690USD)
and same body with EF-S 18-135 mm II Lens kit at 17K additional price.
2. As I have no idea about ay other lens I am not looking for any other additional lens but if you can suggest any it would be helpful.
I am using Canon SX130 for last almost 3 years and now looking for an upgrade to learn more about photography.
Do I need a DSLR or not….ill say I want to learn professional photography and thats the first answer. Second is when I see my pics I feel scope of betterment whether it can be zoomed a lil extra or can have a better focus, or can blur the background.
In short I want to experiment more than I can do with my current camera…..(not sure if all above said is good to move forward buying a DSLR).
I thinks that’s a great camera, one you’ll be very happy with. As for lenses, I think the 18-55 is a good lens to start out with. When you’re ready to upgrade I can highly recommend the Canon 17-40L. That and the 70-200 F4L IS are to two lenses I currently use, and I love them both.
However, I would not rush out and spend a ton of money on better lenses just yet. The 18-55 is a pretty good lens that you’ll be able to make very good photos with. But when you are ready, both of the lenses I mentioned are excellent choices. They are both great lenses for the money, and considering they’re both Canons high end “L” lenses their price isn’t too bad, but not cheap either. The 17-40 is around $800(US) and the 70-200 is around $1200(US$) the last time I checked.
I you have any other questions, please feel free to ask.
thanks a lot Jeff for your guidance. I’ll surely ask you more questions in future.
Any time. I enjoy being able to help when I can.
