1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Also if you know people who have DLSRs or can go to a store that sells them used it may be worth playing around with a couple before you commit. Most of the capabilites of Canon, Nikon, etc are similar but the interface and feel are notably different. There are also subtle differences to the image sensors among the brands; maybe search flickr for camera models to see what results you like. Obviously people do a lot of post processing and lenses make a huge difference but there's a little inherent nikon-ness or canon-ness etc. to photos taken with each line, IMO.

    Agreed. I've always heard good things about the sensors on the older Fuji DSLR's like the S5, would love to give one of them a try, and they've got the added benefit of using Nikon's F mount.

    That first picture is phenomenal, love the way the old waterline on the trees forms a sort of second horizon.
    Your camera is good. What is your camera?

    Fuji SERIOUSLY need to hurry up and release the 35mm equivalent lens. 50mm is nice, 35mm is nicer.

    What are you guys usually shooting with? What cameras would you guys recommend for a student budget?
    Shooting w. a T1i w. stock 18-55, but looking for an upgrade.

    Either new lens [15-85] or switch a setup/body.
    Shooting involves: landscapes, school subjects [portraits], and shooting for friends [proms, events, etc]

    Buy lenses, not new bodies.

    Prime Lenses > Zoom lenses.

    the 50mm f/1.8 is a great lens for the price, but any prime lenses will tend to give you better quality pictures than kit/zoom ones.

    you'll want a 35mm on a cropped sensor body though!
