I'd suggest looking for a used d90 or a used d50, both camera's are great, both have focus motors. Both have pretty good features, the 90 has more

I love the feel and tone of these. I'm pretty much shit at post production, I've been meaning to pirate Photoshop and get to work learning. Here's some edits of those biking shots I posted a while back, just done in iPhoto. If anyone has any advice or resources related to getting starting in photoshop or whatever I'd appreciate it!

you can buy the program, or just torrent it. But if you don't know how to use it, the iphoto thing is probably a lot easier if you are happy the way they came out.

In my opinion the flash was too strong. looks studio-staged. tone that down a little bit next time you go out shooting. the type of terrain isn't quite right for exemplifying the bike jump either. its hard to guage how high dude is off the ground. (especially the first one, his back wheel's height is lost by the shadow in the background). Also, as far as postproduction goes, the sky looks a little plastic around the edges of the tree branches. its okay to have a light sky if the only way to correct it is to oversaturate the blue like that.

 

edit-

 

i encourage people to check out this http://christopherandersonphoto.com/#/BOOK%20PROJECTS/NONFICTION/1

so i'm on the fence of either getting the d3100 or the d90...the d3100 is an even $700 and it was looking like that was it, until i found a d90 for $700

Christopher Morris -

 

 

check out the other ones. the potential for the technology is definitely there. This dude is probably depressing as shit though to meet in real life (although, hes a member of one of the more legit war photo Agencies, VII Photo, so hes probably seen a lifetime of fucked up shit)

i just looked briefly through two reviews, i would recommend teh 3100. all the specs are better. the only downer is the less variety the 3100 has relative to the 90.

 

I have the 3000, and though the entry level dslr's get knocked on a lot around here, I actually prefer them because they are so much more portable. It seems like youre purchasing online, but if possible, I'd recommend holding the two in your hand to see which you prefer, the d90 is more than half a pound heavier and a lot bulkier i believe.

Thanks for that link, wanted to check out some more of his videos.

 

As for the entry level discussion, I'd say the most slept on camera's are the Lumix 4/3rds like the G1 and G2.

They don't look legit because they're so compact since there is no mirror, but the shots speak for themselves.

In fact, I'd say the quality is better than most entry level SLR's and also great ISO performance.

 

A good friend of mine copped, he's been getting super sick photo's with it lately, content and quality

Kinda wish dude posted in here so you could see what I'm talking about but I guess he's got his own shit going.

i notice most people on here seem to shoot nikon. i shoot canon but i only have an old xti with an ef-s lens (wont fit full frame body) and one ef that would still work, my 50mm 1.4 which is about $350. so not much to lose by switching to nikon. i've been pondering switching to though when i upgrade to a full frame body since either way im gonna have to get a new zoom lens for my main lens... but every time i use a nikon i cant stand the format/ the way its set up. i would think i would get used to that though. but the fact that the old lenses work on nikons really appeals to me. so im wondering if anyone has anything to offer as far as advice... any other good reasons i may want to switch? oh and i already have a pretty nice a-1 with some good lenses and power winder etc.. so i dont know how much i would use the fact that you can use old nikon lens on new nikon bodys.

True, if you get a Nikon body with a focus motor, lenses from the 60's will work flawlessly. Nikons had the same F-Bayonet style lens system since 1965 I think. Since most lenses are made for 35mm you can get some good used glass. Also, from my experience the D700 is the shit, hands down the best purchase I've made.

 

If you're planning on getting into studio work though I'd recommend sticking with cannon. Much easier to make a living at this doing studio work. It seems to me like the pro's at field work are shifting towards or already using Nikon's now. I'm pretty sure because of the way they capture natural light and their speed/ISO performance per dollar. The studio pro's still use cannon mostly unless it's Mamiya or Hasselblad, because cannon delivers higher MP's per dollar, plus the controlled lighting of studio shooting makes up for any loss in speed.
