That is not real velvia!!

kenrockwell.com talks about the differences between all of them i dont know fully but there is a good kind and a bad kind of the iso 100 stuff.

the green grass and blue sky and blue subarus.. i cant wait to see what it looks like.

i'm going to buy a canon 450D. then in a year or so i'm going to buy a fucking expensive digital!

I'll still use my AE-1 though! This is my first roll of velvia, btw!

If I can say something... try to buy directly a 40D realy for your skils will be the right choice.. I dont want to talk to much but when you will have it you will understand that the semipro is in reality cheaper than the amateur reflex. For example when I bought my 20D the prices were same.. differences same and the at the time 350d was chiper for around 40% of the only body of 20D. The 20D have now 2 years and more than 120 000 cliks and still works perfectly while I used it in rain, in snow, I hurt it badly and always repair it by myself without problems thanx to it incredible construction. It is also still incredibly fast with effective 3-4 shots per second snd the buttons and everything... while the 350d after 30 000 shots broke down and needs repair of 1/3 of its price.. make the calculus and think.. realy I have a lotof friends who didnt want to listen to me and bought 300, 350 and 400 and after they passed to 20, 30 or 40 they understand and said that if they knew grrr.. they never bought the amatour camera. Realy dont do this mistake you will throw money trought the window.. the 400 or 450 isnt for you! this kind of camera is for someone who never used a reflex... and they arent fast enought in shooting and in procesing + 1/8000 sec is a big thing belive me;)

you've got to be joking me, they have the same image processor but the XSI has a better sensor, if i'm buying a pro SLR its going to be full frame and certainly not a 40D. I want a light camera I can throw around that's not expensive yet at the same time fixes the things I hate about my XT. the XSI does all of these things. if your using 1/8000 shutter your doing something wrong because your probably using too high of an ISO or too low of an aperture and are going to get crappy results. 45 shot buffer is more than i can use because i only get a car every minute.

I had a big response all typed up and then i navigated away from the page and lost it.

Yeah he is a driver and he wins and stuff. This is the first race where i was really impressed by him, because he is taking such a technical line through stuff, and other drivers are not as technical. his skills have really matured. Dave Mirra also competed in this event, it was one of his first events.

oh wow... I love how there's a kind of lightness just around the car, and I'm not exactly sure what you meant, but I may know :)

Your right there is lightness around the car. I used photomatix to make this, which uses the 16 bit per channel information my camera stored to a raw file, and makes an 8 bit per channel file.. so it chooses which parts of the dynamic range it wants where. It used the lighter portion for the shadows and that bleeds into the area around the car. I don't really know how to keep it from doing that, so I got lucky this time :)

ah that's kind of stupid, but it does give it that halo kind of effect :giggle:

I just found out this usually happens when you have the luminosity setting below 0.. so I could probably fix it. but i'm not going to! :)
