    Default Should I get this? Should I get that? What should I get?

    Hi to all experts out there,

    I'm not sure if I should get this, or if I should get that. Actually, only I know what I really want, so I don't know why I'm asking everyone here. But most times I don't have a mind of my own, so I need you strangers behind your own computers to tell me what to do.

    Thanks for your advice.

    Dear entropy,

    I am the expert you seek (i've got a certificate to prove it) and I tell you to go forth and buy this. It is what you need. Do not question yourself whether it really is what you need or whether there are better alternatives out there. Just buy it because i told you so

    Regards,
    Trent (expert)

    No, you're not following his advice! He never said get THIS. He said get this.

    I know they look similar, but a smart consumer will spot the difference.

    That's why I'm a noob and you are experienced.

    Your welcome

    And while you're at it, please dump all your noob equipment. cos regardless of their price and the hundreds of great reviews on the web, they are not from This brand. Therefore, they are all trash! How do you expect to be a great photographer with trashy equipment!

    Be an expert photographer. Buy This.


    All the best,
    Trent

    What a strange question you are asking? If you know this is what you should get then get it, otherwise wait for THAT to appear!

    Dammit, now I have to dump my D∞X and 1-∞ mm F0.17 lens.

    But I should listen to you, because you're an expert and I have no mind of my own. I like to have people tell me what to do because I'm too lazy to spend some time reading to learn more about my equipment and what photography is about.

    Please also tell me what settings I should use with my new This. I shoot everything, and I want to know the settings for EVERYTHING.

    Thanks in advance.

    hmm...

    try this... 1s, f/8, @ ISO 200

    I was using those settings for shooting fireworks but i guess they'll work for any situation under the sun
