Camera Stuff...

  • I've stumbled across an interesting blog: 35mmc. It seems fairly active, and the archives are deep. It's got a lot of interesting stuff on 35mm compact film cameras, as you may surmise from the title. That was the original focus of the place, but over time it's morphed into a more general photography site.

  • If you have an APS-C sensor Canon DSLR, like a Rebel, you might have noticed the paucity of good glass without stepping up to the EF lenses. Canon has apparently decided that Rebel shooters are fine with slow kit zooms. There is one gem in the crop-sensor EF-S lens lineup, with focal length appropriate to the smaller sensor: I can't recommend the EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS lens enough. That constant f/2.8 max aperture makes a huge difference shooting indoors.
Canon 7D & 17-55mm f/2.8: It's not a long lens, but it has a useful amount of reach.
