Hey everyone, I am going to buy my first DSLR. I zeroed in on the Canon 600d, but someone just confused me with the Sony A58. Can someone clear up this for me? Also, if i go for Sony will the lens be costly if I plan to buy additional ones later.

I've read countless posts asking the same question ("can you recommend a camera for a beginner") with different answers and I've done quite a bit of reading up on the different cameras I've discovered through online reviews as well as threads in these forums. I've reached the point where all of the reviews are starting to blur a bit. Here's a little bit of background. I'm an amateur photographer who enjoys taking pictures. I have no illusions of ever becoming a professional but I do enjoy...

Hi, my current DSLR setup consists of a Canon EOS 600D with the lenses Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS IICanon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS IICanon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Overall I'm quite satisfied with what I can do so far. The problematic areas are lowlight photography and everything with fast movements (e.g. birds or rabbits, none of the lenses are really fast in autofocus). In the future I want to experience more with astrophotography and landscape pictures. What upgrade options do I have to get a...

Hi everyone. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide with my situation: I'm effectively a beginner, although I've dabbled here and there. I have the Canon EOS 600D (a.k.a. the Rebel T3i), and I'm in a position to begin doing some work for a friend's business. The business specializes in custom enclosures, greenhouses, sun rooms, conservatories, and other home additions. The goal is to produce custom photo sets of completed installations for use on the web, in advertisements, and on...

I purchased my T3i in November of last year and for the first 6.5 months it worked flawlessly.  Now i am having trouble with the built-in flash.  It seems as though it is mis-firing, or firing at the wrong time not in sync with the shutter.  I use the camera as an everyday shooter mostly in auto mode (amateur).  It's strange, one shot will be flawless, the next totally dark, very unpredictable.  I've read through the manual, checked the canon website for faq's and information, and I cant...

Help! Just got a new external flash Sunpak PZ42X for my Canon 600D. Problem is all flash photos come out mostly black (as if the flash didn't fire at all). Turns out I can actually see the flash fire in the viewfinder - which I guess means the flash fires even before the mirror goes up. I can only see one flash coming from the flash unit. Any ideas why the flash is not firing *after* the shutter opens? Can what I am seeing be the pre-flash, and the "main" flash functionality is somehow...

I've got an external flash for my 6d that communicates with the body to know what the focal length is. You can hear and see the flash adjust to widen or narrow the flash to correspond to different focal lengths. Does this also happen with a Rebel like the T3i? For example:If I've got the kit lens at 18mm wide angle, will the light pattern from the flash be different than the lens at 55mm focal length?

It's been a long time since I came here, and actually a very long time since I did any real good photo shooting. I was burn out a few years ago and completely stopped any "serious" photography, except for iPhone pics. I also purchased a 600D to take pictures of my daughter and be able to do some high-quality videos of her, and I was happy enough with the camera for its purpose (good and not too heavy). I also have a 1D Mark II which I used semi-professionally 8-9 years ago (mainly...
