    I'm doing a 52 week project with some co-workers. I have trouble just keeping up with that at times. :)

    Great shot Brian. I'll be following your 365 project with curiosity. Maybe I'll get some ideas. :)

    Question at you photo guys:

    I purchased a Sony CX 115 for HD Videos but tthe photo mode disappoints me a bit.
    My question is, are there any good reflex camera in the 400€ price range with HD video function? Would this be better than a real camcorder at this budget?

    400€ (used) is the minimum for camera + lense, you don't wanna buy something too cheap either. Dunno the canon ones, but the first decent nikon is D60 i would say. I think the first with video is the D90 (the new D80). I'll let canon users give you the good advice from the Canon point of view.

    Sick photos everyone!

    Brian, yes I was up a tree, it was incredibly uncomfortable but I really like the angle too, thanks :)

    Anyway, I'm looking for some advice. Since I got the Tokina 12-24 I've not been using the stock lens, it's shit in every way compared to the Tokina. I'm after a longish (probably fixed focal) lens with a wide aperture for portraits and general use. Since I do most of my shooting outdoors I'm thinking either Canon 85mm f1.8, 50mm f1.8/f1.4 or possibly a 65mm macro (from another manufacturer probably, dunno if I can stretch to the canon) as it would be quite versatile. I really don't want another plastic feeling lens so I'm guessing the 50mm f1.8 isn't for me, unless it could survive being treated a bit rough.

    Any suggestions?

    The 50mm f/1.8 is really a great lens for the price (nice bokeh) but if you don't mind spending a bit more I'd get the 1.4. Both lenses are plastic though (if you want a metal 1.4 you'll have to find a used model). I guess it's up to you if the extra stop is worth ~$300. I wouldn't buy a macro for portrait use. The depth of field is way too shallow. I haven't had any issues with the lens' build quality, but I am pretty careful with all my gear.
