    *PYPT* = Post your pics too!

    Haven't used an SLR for years and only had a crapass sony U20 for quite some time.

    Got this setup a month ago:
    Canon EOS-10D
    1GB Sandisk Ultra II CF card
    Canon EF 24-70 F2.8L
    Canon EF 70-200 F2.8L
    Canon EF 50mm Compact Macro
    Tiny Bogen Tripod

    Just a couple days ago:
    Speedlite 420EX
    Canon EF Extender 2x

    You can kinda compare it to a Digital Rebel because most of the features and quality is exactly the same, except I have some L lenses instead of the kit lens. But it is the same image sensor. (No AF Servo mode on rebel though I think as well)

    Here's a tiny selection of some pictures from when I first started to now, not in quite right order. Been riding around on my motorcycle with all this photogear taking pics. These are all resized down quite a bit mind you, and only a few have been rebalanced / USM in photoshop.

    BTW I've taken over 3700 pictures so far. :o

    post some of your pics :)

    I found the general composition to come back rather quickly in terms of framing, focal length, FOD, etc... but the real challenge for me is holding everything still in lower light, using the tripod when I should, remembering to check all the settings... I've taken a lot of morning pics at ISO400 from the previous night's settings.

    I'm finding the real slr flash is very useful compared to the built in... all the angles and a diffuser and tons of power.

    The EF 2x Extender is crazy... turns the 70-200 into 140-400, and with 1.6x crop factor its hard to hold still. But it can get some great shots from amazingly far away. Only problem is that combo gets attention like a soldier with an RPG.

    90% of my pictures come from purposeful photo trips... and stopping a lot. and doing that a lot... I must have spent 25-30 hours over the month doing this, not to mention the travel.

    Most of the pics were within a hundred yards of where I parked the bike. I need to spend longer at certain places now to get some more thorough coverage.

    http://exphose.com/russell has some of my pics as well and a bit larger.

    A lot of the shots have potential ittech, more thought needs to be put on composition and maybe try using the rule of thirds more so not everything is dead-center all the time, but all in all good stuff.

    Here's some street art I shot yesterday morning at work out my window with my 10d with a 28-135 shooting with the long end of it.

    I'm still deciding between 300D and D70.... I love the D70's featuers + speed but I also am leaning towarsd the 300D due to price (now has mirror lock up with hack, and better pictures coming straight from cam in my opinion (less moire to deal with), and of course ISO 100 = crystal smooth clouds etc)...... But the Nikon is a tad less nosier in high ISO settings. GRRRRRRR

    Despite the fun I have messing with disconsolate about moire, but it really isn't a huge issue with the D70, and shouldn't be used as a basis for not considering the D70.

    The D70 kit is a great setup, at a good price, the 300d kit is a good setup, at a great price. Admittedly, the D70 kit lens is a step above the 300d plastic throw in, but I don't think people used to P&S cameras will notice a significant difference.

    Both cameras are similar enough (or have tradeoffs that cancel each other out) that you really can't go wrong with either. Go to a store, and handle both, see which one you prefer and buy it.

    I agree I have to work on composition a bit... I am using the center focus point only to AF, then moving the shot around... but I don't do it enough, taking a few pictures from different angles...

    Good pics too... I do the motion background still subject by panning, as smoothly as possible while using a slower shutter speed, like 1/60th or so. It's hard to not motion blur the subject. That bike race was good practice since they came by so often.

    I'd like to see an ISO400 and ISO800 pic from the D70... I'll post one from the 10D later like monday or so.

    Great pics. I've had my 300D for about 6 months now and my gear consists of a Sigma 20 f1.8, Ef 50 f1.8, 85 f1.8, 100 f2.8 Macro, 135 f2 L, Bogen 3021 Tripod with 488RC0 head, and Sigma 500 DG super. I'm getting 2 550EX flashes and a 70-200 IS within a month :x: .

    Here are some pictures I took yesterday with the various lens;

    [​IMG]

    and so you can see the noise:

    [​IMG]

    I forgot that my camera was set to ISO1600 from the night before and went to the zoo the next day (1st day i had the cam) and took all 145 pics with ISO1600.. nothing NeatImage didnt fix though. The posted ones are PRE-NeatImage.
