    this will be my 3rd year going but in the past ive also been balancing the video camera and talking to people/looking at stuff. This year im not bringing the video camera and its my first with the XTi. Anyone got any good tips? i know how hard it is too take decent photos there. im also taking my previous camera because it has a big zoom

    Should i get a Polarizing Filter or a Lens hood before i go, ive only got the 18-55 kit lens

    ISO 400 or 800, most likely 800 since the kit lens isn't a constant 4.0 or faster lens. no CP. lens hood would be nice but i wouldn't bother spending money on the kit lens.

    shoot AV mode, aperture around f/5.6 for most shots will give you shutter speeds of around 1/60-1/80, fast enough to hand hold.

    ill keep the camino in mind. The theme this year is old Muscle cars i know. And im not paying anything, the flight and hotel go on the business expenses and probably some of the meals.
