    I got some poster sized pictures made of some of my pictures through costco and I paid for overnight shipping. Shit came a week later. Fuck that.

    I'll post some indoor test shots when I get home, but Im really new to dslr's, i bought the d50 with the 18-55mm kit lens...I was just messing around with it in my room last night, and nearly ever picture was turning out grainy/noisy to an almost 2mp-era camera. I know this thing takes much better shots with the kit lens, what should I be adjusting and playing with to get better results?

    Kit lens licks dog cock for indoor pictures. You should buy a Tamron 28-75 f2.8

    It will make your pictures good even if you are not very good.

    turn the iso down and use flash instead if you can? :dunno: if the iso is high you will get grainy pictures for sure.
