    Taken at the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve near the Grapevine. We took a road trip there yesterday.

    Amazon.com: Sigma 200-500mm f/2.8 APO EX DG Ultra-Telephoto Zoom Lens for Canon DSLR Cameras: Camera & Photo

    Check out the reviews and user photos from this lens. If you shoot with this lens while wearing a 3 wolf shirt you might blow up the world.

    I'm crying over here looking at the images people posted. This one might be my favorite.



    Followed closely by this one.



    The comments on the second one kill me.

    I hope this is ok to post in here..I didn't want to start a whole new thread.

    I am going to dive into the world of DSLR and I need some help please. I only have experience with point and shoot cameras so I am very green. I don't plan on making a career out of this, so I am not looking to buy a top of the line camera.

    I will be using this camera for family use, weekend trips, pictures of the kids...
    Some of my objectives are to blow up pictures for framing, photo albums, slide shows and such.

    I am leaning towards getting a Canon because we have hade good luck with our last few cameras. If someone could point out a specific model # or even another brand, it would realy help me out.

    Also any tips on "bundle packages" (lenses), flash, warranty (if needed), cases, memory...I am trying to keep the total price below $800.00. (is that even realistic)

    Thanks in advance.

    Tony

    No, it is not OK. **** YOU!!!!!!

    First off - be sure you actually want a DSLR. There are many point and shoot cameras these days that will take very nice pictures of family and vacations, enable you to blow them up, and be considerably smaller than a DSLR. No camera is any good if you don't have it with you, and if the DSLR's bulk will prevent you from using it much, it would be pointless to buy one.

    IF you definitely want one, I would suggest that you do some reading online regarding the various models. dpreview.com is not a bad place to start to get you familiar with some of the basics and what the different models offer.

    Then I would suggest going to a camera store and trying out a number of DSLR's. There's really no such thing as a "bad" DSLR these days, so one important consideration is how well it fits in YOUR hands, not some reviewer's.

    I think $800 is quite reasonable for an entry-level camera and decent lens. Not sure if you can also get a decent flash for that. You should be able to get a good bag and memory cards are dirt cheap these days. It is my experience that most "all inclusive" packages are no bargain.

    Last, but not least - it's Canon, not Cannon.

    Definitely go to a real brick-and-mortar camera shop to get some hands-on time and a knowledgeable salesperson to help you with your purchase.

    Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Sony...all can be found in nice starter bundles with lenses at prices at $1000 and less. Any of those brands can help you do great work. It'll come down to what you like, since most camera packages in that price range have similar features. Keep in mind that most won't come with very large memory cards (if any at all) and that you'll also more than likely need to spend some money on some cleaning supplies. If you can afford to add it to your budget, be sure to also grab a good-quality tripod. That's a tool you'll never be sorry you bought.

    The one downside to buying a bundle is that the lenses aren't great...usually the very low-end stuff from that manufacturer. Surely, they're capable of taking excellent pics, but as you gain some experience with your camera body and gain an appreciation for the craft, you'll want to retire those kit lenses to be used as paperweights and doorstops in favor of some higher-end glass.

    Take the time to read through this thread. There's been a TON of information posted here as well as techniques and tips and tricks. Above all, let us know what you decide and show us what you capture!
    Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.
