comment Is a 50mm f/1.8 or 50mm f/1.4 a good lens for portraits in low light?
+1 The technique you describe in your third paragraph sounds cool, I have never heard of doing something like that. I only know how to have flash on or off. Do you know of a tutorial or something that goes into more detail about how to use flash the way you are describing?

comment Why does the quality of my pictures lower the more I zoom in?
@D. Lambert, I used a lot of settings, for the moon I found the closest ones to what I thought looked decent, was when I had it on the setting that lets me choose shutter speed (and auto adjusts the aperture) and I used between 15 and 25. (think that means 1/15th of a second, not sure tho - it just said 15)

Thanks, it makes more sense now. Between yours and others suggestions, I have a lot of things I can try out.

Thanks, your advice sounds good for shooting (virtually) stationary objects like the moon. What about a fast moving object like a bird, with f/11 and a slower shutter on a tripod, it will not be able to freeze it. Is this something I will not be able to do with my current lens?

A couple questions, what do you mean by 1/focal length for getting sharp pictures and by 1/320th and 1/500

I never considered air debris to be an issue, that makes sense though. I guess I will try f/8 - f/11 at various shutter speeds and see what kind of results I can get. Thanks.

comment Will the Kata 3n1 22 bag be big enough for a Canon 60D with 18-200mm kit lens?
Got the bag, it fits with the hood on and still room so spare.

comment What kind of SD card do I need to keep my dSLR from stoppping every few seconds when taking HD video?
don't worry I appreciate your advice, I am wondering if there is something else going on, I really don't understand how a class 4 sdhc card at 720p can't go much longer than a plain 5 year old sd card at 1080p.. doesn't seem right to me. I dunno though, I think next time I'll try class 10 and if I experience the same issue then I know something is up.

So I bought this class 4 card: bhphotovideo.com/c/product/752183-REG/… thinking that it would be decent, it only records for just over 10 seconds before auto stopping. Even when I drop it down to 720p.

Thanks, I ordered th 55, I think it will make a good started bag, then I can upgrade to the kata 33 later if needed.

That bag is also a lot less expensive then the Kata. I wonder, can you wear it as a backpack? Thanks.

+1 Thanks, I do wear glasses, I have been shooting with them on though. If I am comfortable that way, is there any reason to shoot without them using the diopter? Thanks.
