    When getting tripod, do consider the Max height (with and without center column being extended). Plus, minus your camera, you should try not to bend forward too much. Ideally la, is for you to stand without slouching and have the view finder in front of you (without extending the center column for maximum stability). ideally la. But having something slightly lower so far no issue for me as most of the time with a tripod, you have the luxury of time to adjust and compose etc.

    note: the taller your tripod, the more ex

    Aiyah, let your pictures speak for you. not your gears ya

    haha. maybe for me is not dangerous, yet.. is only saddening!
    Cos is my 1000D, and my kit lens and me... lol

    but frankly speaking.. after 2 weeks, i think i need a better zoom lens.. but fixed aperture ones is so ex... cos my friend bought 24-70mm for 2k

    this is nonsense.. you can seriously do very well with the kit lens! All you need to know is what you're shooting and the settings you require to get the shot. For your information the kit lens is very sharp f8 and above.

    The only limitation I had for my 1000D was the iso handling. But even that can be made more tolerable using software such as niksoftware dfine.

    dun get me wrong, i am happy with the kit lens, but sometimes i really want to zoom in to a person like at the playground or from a distance.. then i wanna achieve a shallower dof, but kit lens cant, hence my thought of a better zoom lens in future... haha

    Dunnit to spent bomb for a zoom lens unless u really need the fixed aperture and speed.

    A very gd zoom is the 55-250. U can start saving for it now. It served me and still serving me until I get my L.

    are you sure you wanna open floodgates for us to suggest you lenses? now, let me start it slow, try the canon 55-250 ya not THAT expensive, a good compliment to you kit lens. it's a tele zoom EFS for crop. good value lens.

    Well.. you can go nearer.. hahah but maybe try the 50mm f1.8 lens first.. it's very cheap and.. you probably won't be impressed with its quality or performance but it will introduce to you bokeh.

    I do have EF 75-300 f/4-5.6 III if you do want to get a telephoto though..

    haha. oh ok, i shouldnt open the floodgates u mentioned. lenses!

    55-250 - have always hear ppl using this.. prolly the more affordable and good value zoom lens
    50mm 1.8 - seems like a MUST get at least once for everyone.

    hoho. but with buybuybuy comes investment and devotion. later i still need dry box, more maintenance..
    I will just dream of using them in my slp for now.

    And No wonder this thread pile up so fast, cos is so actively filled up by u guys. lol.
