comment How do I change settings on the fly without missing my shots?
As I am also still learning, I will shoot in Av mode(semi auto) when I will be snapping pics while walking around, I will use Manual mode only when shooting landscape where I can afford to loose few seconds/minutes. Also can I know why not 6D and a 7D ?

comment Does the battery grip for the Canon 1000D fit on the Canon EOS T3/1100D?
Was just checking out this video and BG-E5 has connectors near the battery terminals which are not there in 1100D, so looks like if I want to use a Battery Grip I would have to use an aftermarket one for which I need to connect a wire from the outside and it will look odd and get in the way. Till canon releases one I am better off carrying extra battery in my camera bag !

I am not planning to upgrade now , so is there no other alternative ? I dont mind memory card getting jailed, as I plan on buying a bigger storage capacity card soon, if thats the case will BG-E5 fit on 1100D ?

comment High-end compact camera with swivel screen and running on AA batteries
@gerrit But if we use battery grip for a DSLR, we can use AA batteries right ? There are few models with swivel screens, what if we use battery grip to make use of AA batteries, but it wont be small though.

comment What sites/companies are available for buying and selling used lenses?
Since you have not mentioned your region, its difficult to answer this question, not all online stores are available globally.

comment How to safely disconnect EOS camera from Mac?
Adding to that, if you have connected camera to your Mac/PC you can just turn off the camera and disconnect. This will immediately stop all read/writes to the card, but just make sure you have closed all programs that have accessed your camera.

comment How small can current SLRs get and still give comparable photo quality?
@user763554 Have you looked at Mirror Less cameras ? It still gives you pretty much same quality of APS-C DSLR cameras, but the downside is that its not longer a SLR as the prism is removed.

Have a look at Canon Entry level DSLR(1100D/T3) which is priced similarly to p510.

comment Should I leave the lens hood on my new 35mm f/1.8?
If its not petal shaped, will it not create black spots in corners in low light situations ?

comment What are your easiest photography beginner tips?
Sometimes it happens that you will overlook some of the functionalists that your camera provides. Its better to know well in advance what a button does before realizing that it was there all the time

comment How do I change the exposure setting in manual mode on a Canon EOS 550D?
+1, even I was having the same confusion like the OP had. But one thing I noticed is that I can still snap pics in 3 different exposure compensation in M mode, how is that ?
