comment What tips and advice do you have for photographing the Aurora Borealis?
Turned out pretty good! I was surprised to see the aperture open to f10. I am about to go out tonight and try this (strong possibility of norhtern lights where i live tonight) and based on all the reading i've done people keep suggestig fast glass. Well the only one I have is 50mm over a cropped sensor which is not wide enough for what i want. In any case, based on your photo here I will also try my wide angle (f4 max)

comment What professional level camera would be suitable to a beginner?
+1 for suggesting Pentax K-r. I used to have the Pentax K10D and it was a solid performer. I agree that the Pentax kit lenses are a better quality then those of other manufacturers. I eventually picked up the Pentax 50mm f1.4 for $350 and was extremely satisfied with the results.

I think @Hariharan means a DSLR (Professional = DSLR). Most folks that have only used a compact camera often refer to an "SLR" camera as a "professional" camera.

The 24-105 f/4 is a good walkabout on a full frame but not on the Rebel. However, you already have a wide angle lens so in this case it the 24 - 105 focal length might work well.

comment What is the next step up from the Canon T2i?
Great thorough answer as always. Also wanted to add that the Snapsort comparison list a "smaller" body as an advantage. I disagree with this. From ergonomics standpoint the larger body is easier to hold and operate. For me personally the Canon 7D body is also more comfortable to hold then the D7000.

thanks for your comments! Very helpful. @Stan - I used those links as extreme examples. I did get a lens from Vistek in the past and was happy with the service but they still seem to have overpriced this item @ $330. I usually order from B&H but then it's a bit of a drive to the border to pick it up, the hassle, etc. I guess my question really is; is the off-brand grip a quality enough item to use every day.

Wow. Speechless. It's hard to believe this kind of discrimination is legal in the EU.

What is a job interview photo? Do you need to submit a photo of yourself to apply for a job in Germany?

comment Which model is a good first DSLR, the Sony SLT A35, Canon 550D or Nikon 3100?
Not a better technology but rather another alternative.

comment Are DSLRs a dying breed, making now the time to switch to a mirrorless camera system?
excellent points. Could not agree more with the ergonomics of the bigger body size.

comment What are the biggest differences between Reversal Rings, Extension Tubes and Macro Lenses?
i agree with the crappy search when trying to research whether a similar question has been posted before. As for the extension tubes; one word of cation; do not get the cheap ones. I decided to try it out and my lens almost fell off the tube. Other then that the macro effect was pretty nice.
