I'm 18, and go to uni, and I'd like to get into photography as a hobby. Being a student, I don't have too much money, so my budget is about £300, which I found on eBay can get cameras retailing for about £450 on places like Amazon.I don't think I really want to get into DSLR's, but I certainly want something that produces good quality pictures. I imagine I'll be using it to take pictures of all sorts I come about, pictures in the local forest, animals, interesting things about, also pictures...

What's the longest amount of loading time that you've encountered so far from using the t3i/600d/kiss x5 ??I bought a refurbished one from canon usa.The red light of the bottom right corner got me, When I take shots in dark photos, may be without proper settings....the red light can show up for a good 5 seconds or a little more. So yesterday I was in AV mode. Cold weather.  (but not negative Celsius, no rain or snow) was using 50mm F 1.8When I wanted to use it again for video....well my card...

I mainly shoot jpgs at max quality of LSF.  At this compression setting, file sizes are in the 9-9.5 MB range.  When I switch the Digital TC on file sizes are still in the 8-8.5 range.  I checked this by down loading files, with and without DTC on, to my photo editor PSP X5.Franly, I was amazed at the file sizes w/ the DTC activated.  Shouldn't it be about 1/2 of the normal file size.  I'm just a bit puzzled here.  But if this is correct, the DTC is a very powerful tool, e.g for the 12-35...

I first must add I'm only a beginner when it comes to macro photography. I did have a DSLR previously and had used a macro lens with it and had taken a few insects photos.I am now totally converted to the m4/3 system with the OMD but never got down to using it to do macro photography until today.I tried using the new 60mm macro lens with the OMD today, to take photos of insects this morning. Unfortunately, it was quite a disaster. I didn't have a flash with me, so that may be partly the...

Is there any photo editing software that does NOT require an internet connection to install and run?  I don't need on-line tutorials.  I'm trying to install PSP X5 Ultimate and I keep getting an error message that tells me I need an internet connection.  Corel tech support is working on the problem--I should be getting a phone-in registration message but I'm not.  I don't want my photo editing PC subjected to viruses and/or "root kits" so I keep it off-line.  Yes I'm on Windows--XP with SP3...
