"Camera store guys probably know about taking stills.  So they say you should get a lens with a big maximum aperture, so you can shoot in lower light.  But that's not an issue for us stop moes.  And they say you want Canon lenses…"

"It's sad, but a sign of our times that even supposedly highly knowledgeable pros in a camera shop pride themselves on knowing only the latest high tech electronic technology and scoff at (and know nothing about) the old-fashined, low-tech but…"

"To Strider and StopmoNick, I read back through Aaron's 'Aperture and Lens question' post again to see if I missed anything. I had a 'conversation' in my local camera store with the 'camera people' (just that day)…"

Strider replied to Patricia Sourdes's discussion I would need some help to buy a DSLR and lenses
"To add just a bit that I consider very important - (and I'll start by repeating something Nick said) - Canon  lenses don't have an aperture ring built onto them. Exposure is adjusted only by the camera itself, electronically. We…"

"I guess I can go through this once more. First, the Canon body - Canon managed to come out with a DSLR with Live View that didn't switch itself off to prevent overheating, which some of the first Nikons with Live View did.   Animators need…"

"Hope you don't mind me asking this here. But I was wondering why there's a lot of suggestions to use Nikon lenses with a Canon body? Is there any benefit from doing things that way in peoples experience?"

"I need to do more testing - but so far I'm not sure a macro lens really does anything you can't do in post cropping, and with post cropping you don't have to get the camera as close and block the light as much.  One good point in…"

"ok I get it now. I was a little confused there too. Michael is such a common name i've gone by Mikey for most of my life, so when people say mike or Michael i don't even flinch. "

"Lol yeah, not only is my name also Mike, but my email name is heymykee... so trust me, it confused me even more!  My Panasonic Lumix G1 has a 2x crop factor, so a nivce normal lens would actually be a 25mm - guess I won;'t find any…"

Mikey Pounds replied to Patricia Sourdes's discussion I would need some help to buy a DSLR and lenses
"Nice Strider!  yeah for insert and cutaway shots it's nice to have all options open. And keep in mind on a cropped sensor camera like the t2i,3i,4i,60d,7d the ratio is 1.6. Meaning that a 50mm is more like a 70mm and 100mm is 160mm. The…"

"Hey Mikey, I want to thank you for making me realize the power of macro - I had been avoiding it. But I've spent the night taking some additional shots in my bar set to add to my formerly very weak montage sequence - now I can easily get dozens…"

Strider replied to Patricia Sourdes's discussion I would need some help to buy a DSLR and lenses
"Thanks! Is there actually such a thing as a 28mm macro? I thought they started at around the 50mm range on up - with the wider lenses you can already get in quite close and it seems adding macro capability to them wouldn't accomplish…"

"Just tried this with the T3i and worked great with a range of Canon lenses.  I'm not overly keen with having a lens half-mounted, and a little leery of rocking electrical connections while "live", but it doesn't seem to harm…"

Mikey Pounds replied to Patricia Sourdes's discussion I would need some help to buy a DSLR and lenses
"Yeah, your depth of field will be shallow when your focused close. But without a macro you can't focus close at all. Just remember to close your aperture as far as you can (f22) and that will deepen your focal plane, or go with a wider lens…"

"Ok, I think I get it now - I messed around with my 55mm macro lens and realized a few things. This lens works differently than the old macro lens I had (still have but it's broken) - on that one to get into macro mode I had to pull out a lever…"
