    So I got my Rebel at Best Buy for $784.99 on sale from normal price of 899.99.

    Can't wait to play around with it. Any quick tips or tricks? I need to remember all the f/stop, depth of field and shutterspeed stuff.

    I'll probably been hanging around here a lot and reading.

    :wavey:

    Just remember when you're remembering the Depth of feild stuff : b/c you are using a smaller senser then the normal 35mm frame, your depth of feild isnt exactly the same as on one of your film cameras. (the camera uses a wider lens to get aproximatly the same image : wider lens = larger depth of field)

    I wouldnt worry about it too much tho...go HAVE FUN WITH IT :)

    welcome to the club!

    the good thing about learning your about your camera is, it doesn't cost much to practice.

    and when you start getting serious with it, BACK UP your files. use whatever methods you want (I use external HD and Cds), but BACK UP your files. :supergrin:

    Ditch the kit lens for something better as quick as you can. I've taken some good macro shots with it but beyond four feet or so it's not really better than a point and shoot.
