Going to Beijing... what do i use? pls advise
Ok, am kinda new to this dslr photography.. i bought a used Olympus e500 many mths ago, at a good price, came with one basic lens - the zuiko 14-45.
now, i am going to Beijing on tuesday, attedning some olympic events.. and wondering if i should get maybe a second hand zoom lens?
also, the flash on my olympus is busted.. and i was quoted $160 form olympus to fix it.. i dont think its worht that.. shall i just get an externam falsh and hook it onto my camera instead? and also, i probably taking most pics in the daytime.. so do i even need a flash?
my idea was to learn as much can using this camera, then one day upgrade to a Canon EOS D40 or something like that..
i mostly take scenic shots, and of my dogs
thanks for any advise!!
