so what kind of camera is everyone using? i have a canon digital rebel but im looking for something better...any suggestions?
i love it when the grader man comes, it's like christmas in the summer!
<--rebel xt, i used to have a 20D when they first came out but it got sold to fund a motorcycle, said motorcycle was then jumped off a cliff, return on motorcycle investment was not good, rebel xt was purchased.
really the only thing i miss about it though was the bigger body and the wheel rather than buttons. i've discovered the camera body really doesn't matter so much when compared with knowing how to use one and getting some nice glass(not that i have any).
well, i say that, but i suppose it was a good investment as i got a ton of memories that were definitely worth it from that bike. as for the cliff jumping, i was out riding and I went into a decreasing radius turn too fast and tried to lean it over some more when it tightened up only to find out it was pretty much already at the front tires' limit. I was only like 6 inches from the ground so when the tire slid out i just went sliding and came out no worse for the wear(gear works if you wear it!). the bike on the other hand went in a different direction at a higher speed and jumped itself off a cliff into a tree. needless to say it was much worse off for the wear.
