Hi, not to derail your current conversation of the 7D but I need some advice in purchasing a camera bag for my GF. She has a Canon rebel xsi and has two lenses and a flash, I would like to keep it under $100 Any suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

You can check out the Kata range of bags
Not very fashionable but good all the same.

New addition to my aresenal.. a 18 year old 24mm f/2.8

Size compared to a 85mm f/1.8

Just checking in.

Got my very first DSLR a few days ago - a Canon 40D, with the kit lens 17-85mm to start with. It just seems very well build and fits my hand perfect.

Any good advice on flashes?

It would help to know the type of bag she has in mind as well as the size of her lenses.

In Head-Fi tradition I can espouse something I own. I have a Lowepro Sling Shot 200 and it suits my needs very well. It holds a camera with grip, zoom lens as well as smaller lenses and a handful of accessories. The "sling" nature lets you wear it like a backpack and slide the case in front of you to pull things out when necessary (demonstrated in video). It comes in four sizes.

I've owned other Lowepro products that were very well made but didn't suit me like the sling pack does.

Thank you fellas for the recommendations of the Kata and Lowepro bags. I was actually looking at the Lowepro and they have it at Bestbuy, she did mention that her preference were a backpack/sling style as opposed to a messenger type.

Can't comment on the lens size as I am totally ignorant on photography. I am actually gaining interest in this hobby and may purchase my own camera. I do like the new Canon G11 but I think I should start off with a full body dslr and work my way up.

Great thread and I have been lurking back and forth between the Canon and Nikon threads for info.

Photography can make headphones a rather cheap hobby

hurm the 5d classic auto focuses is pretty old but I think I am getting the hang of it


the second the last frame is OOF though but the next frame is in focus. Probably camera shake on my part.

5d classic does have hidden AF points around center though.

yeah it seems that way. The 5d is definitely not a sports body, but I don't want to give up full frame.

Adobe photoshop usually comes with Image Ready, which is a program for taking multiple photos and making animated gif's out of them (among other things).

you can do it all in photoshop you don't need image ready.

window>animation. Each layer must be a unique frame of your animation and just save as a gif.
