DSLR experience/reviews?

Anyone own a Digital SLR?

Been considering buying one... currently looking at the Canon EOS 400D Rebel XTi, or Sony Sony Alpha DSLR-A100.

I have one and I love it. I have the original Canon Digital Rebel. I'd like to have the newer xti now though, but until I learn all the features of this one.. it doesn't really matter.


All my pics are here... I post them pretty much as is.. No photochopping, or correcting. They could be a bit nicer, but I want to learn to take better photos with the camera itself first.

Get one where you have a wide variety of lenses available for the body. Both Canon and Nikons are good. Monolta is good too. Bare in mind that it is more difficult to turn out good pics with a DSLR than it is with a high tech point and shoot. Just keep experimenting with different settings. If you want to shoot people, then invest in a good flash unit with diffuser. If you want to shoot objects, then invest in a good tripod.

Minolta has gone away, Sony has taken over the line...

Have some art/photography experience...but haven't kept up with the hardware. The D80 is tempting, but don't know if i want to put out that intial outlay... though putting a 'good' lense on the XTI put the $ near the same... from an online vendor (darn local shops want 1500 or so for the D80).

Been looking at the XTI, Alpha 100, D80 & Pentax's 10mp SLR... each one's got it's perks and pains. Probably end up going with the XTI..

Go for a D70 body. Now that the 80 is out these should be dropping big time.

The D70 and Rebel are two of the best that I have seen so far. I prefer the D70 (so I bought it) because of the clarity of the photos that I have. I think the difference in the two is not software as much as the type of CCD used in production. I can say the same for the Sony, the CCD displays excellent photos. The D70 and the Sony DSC-W55 (easier for the wife to use) will serve well for years. I use mine for everything from family outings to astronomy.

The only other thing that I found useful was a purchasing a copy of Photoshop for editing. It allows me to stack astronomy photos and create high definition mosaics of the moon and things like that. You can also do some touch ups on regular photos when they aren't quite perfect.
