do u in the first place understand what metering is about? for as far as i know, spot metering is actually instead of metering the whole scene or a subject, it meters a certain spot the ur focusing point is pointing at.newbie question...
i just upgraded from 1000D to 40D...
people said that 40D has spot metering.. whats a spot metering? can anyone explain?
yes it only meters a small section of the whole scene, but not where u focus, but the centre circle marked out in the focusing screen. for 40D, the circle (for spot metering) is approx. 3.8% in the centre.do u in the first place understand what metering is about? for as far as i know, spot metering is actually instead of metering the whole scene or a subject, it meters a certain spot the ur focusing point is pointing at.
bros out there, please correct me if i'm wrong.
(edit) another frustration I've experienced is that somehow, my photos never come out as vivid as I want them to be. Hell, even the photos that I used to take on my p&s Lumix turn up with better colours! Eg. on my 450D, blue skies always turn out more white than they should be, and green grass turns up to look very faded out. Is this a fundamental problem with the 450D, Canon cameras in general, or the kit lens? :\ Help please.
u need a CPL filter.I am a newbie using 1000D, has the same problem too, even the faces of people looks pale. Is there some settings which I should change?
what do CPL and ND4 filter do?u need a CPL filter.
u may oso consider to attend a basic DSLR course from Knowledge Bowl aka *********.
they taught me how to use a CPL and ND4 filter and lots of other useful stuff.
i am still attending the course, it's a 10 lessons course, once a week with 1 day and 1 nite outing. i paid $270 for it.
almost 2 grand... its basically an L lens in an ef-s mount.Hi all,
I am a newbie here. I am gonna get a Canon 500D. I wanna get a slightly better lens than the kit lens... What should i get? I probably would need an IS one. I am into events so a lens which performs well under low light conditions would be of paramount importance. I was thinking of the EF-S17-55 f/2,8 IS USM one... how much is it?
Nope, no problems.hi all,
i recently got my 500D, my first dslr in fact and now undergoing some exploration period of the camera. i will be travelling next week and im wondering whether will there be any problems to place the camera through the xray scanner? ive read somewhere that it does affect somehow but that was sometime ago, and i can't find the info. anyone could shed some light on that..
yeah...the 17-55 costs $1550 - $1600 brand new. but its a very very good piece of glass. the photos produce are close to primes. get the 15-85, its almost as sharp and has longer range. the only thing u will lose out is f/2.8 constant. but it's not a big deal if u are basically shooting family, landscape/cityscape, general shooting...17-55 is more for people who have $$ and know wad they really want to shoot. its a specialist lens. like wad rgy1993 said: an L lens in an ef-s mount...but unlike L lens, the built is awful compared to L.almost 2 grand... its basically an L lens in an ef-s mount.
maybe consider the efs 17-85 or the new 18-135 and 15-85
