Re: 400D and a thousand photos later

Thanks for your comments, Phil. I have only tried a few indoor images with flash, and DPP has never been my choice of converter when it comes to skin tones. Hopefully an ACR update will be released soon.

I agree with your assessment of the kit lens. Although I found it to be capable of good quality when stopped down on the 350D, to get the most out of the 400D it demands a very good lens.

Sounds like you are enjoying the 400D as much as I am! Sorry to hear you are missing Perth - perhaps we can do a swap for a few weeks. LOL.

Great images--all! And your experience is the same as mine with
the XTi/400D: no need for exposure compensation on outdoor settings
(all your posted images are outdoors.) I's still working on indoor
images, and I use an EX420. That said, I also agree that the 400D
really shines with superb glass on the front. The kit lens just
makes it a so-so camera, but good/great glass brings out the best.
I was interested to see that your settings (AF, exposure, Av mode)
are the same as I use!
I miss Perth.
