The way my life has changed since my days on the forum is absolutely unreal. I'm assuming the same is true for many of you guys and gals.

Re: Bieber fever coming to SA...

I still don't get the Bieber hate. He's a young kid making music. He's a great dancer, a great singer, a great performer, and he's not singing about drugs, "bit*%es", "ho's", etc. I personally don't love his music, but I'm having a tough time understanding how people hate this kid so much.

Re: General Photography and Camera Q&A

I seem to have picked up some scratches on the mirror inside my camera. I can see them through the viewfinder, but they are not reflecting on any of the photos I take. As I understand it, the mirror is not actually involved in capturing a picture. That being the case, I don't really see any major n...

Re: Help choose a camera please?

I've noticed lens hoods on your camera. Comments on hoods? How important do you consider a hood for an outdoor shoot? Do you use one indoors at all? As far as I'm concerned, the only reason a hood should ever come off is when you need to make your lens smaller to fit in a bag or something. Lens hoo...

Re: Help choose a camera please?

As a matter of interest, what is your zoom lens of choice for weddings? Nikon's 24-70 f/2.8. It's nice and wide at 24mm, it's just long enough at 70mm, and it's f/2.8 anywhere in that range. It's pretty much the best zoom lens when it comes to being both long enough and wide enough. Honestly, thoug...

Re: Help choose a camera please?

When I am out in the bush or around the house taking photo's I LOVE macro photography. I want to take a photo of a spider and see the detail in it's eyes. Then I also want to be able to take pictures of objects 50m or 100m away. How does the 50mmm prime lens work here? Obviously you can't zoom, so ...

Re: Help choose a camera please?

Hahaha. Yeah, zoom lenses aren't as sharp as the primes. Here's why: Zoom lenses have a wide range that they need to cover. A kit lens, for example, needs to be sharp enough at 18mm, and sharp enough at 55mm. It also needs to be sharp enough at 23mm, 41mm, etc etc etc. Zoom lenses need to be accepta...

Re: Help choose a camera please?

If you DO go the SLR route, sell that 18-55mm lens. It's a piece of junk. I'm hesitant to disagree with Ett here, but I think this is probably a bit of an overstatement. For an absolute beginner, the 18-55 will probably give you some room to experiment with all sorts. You will want to use something...

Re: Help choose a camera please?

I suppose buying cheap is buying expensive in the long run :wink: You know, that's not ALWAYS true in photography. Like I said, if you started off with a CHEAP DSLR (seriously, get the cheapest one you can find) and slapped a 50mm lens on the front, you'd be likely to get some pretty amazing shots....

Hello!! Haven't been on this forum in ages but Anakha asked me to pop in :D Okay, so first off - is it worth getting the DSLR over the compact? I guess that all boils down to what you want: Compact: Jack of all trades, master of none. Point & Shoot cameras are nice if you want to just take a snapsho...

Fixing any phone is a simple DIY job. Google for a guide online and just do it. You could send it to me if you like and I could do it for you if you don't want to do it yourself. I'm actually fixing another one in a couple of weeks, and I just fixed an iPad this week as well. I suggest trying it you...

Well that's all dependant on the seller. Remember, ebay is merely just a medium that connects the seller to the buyer. So one seller might get your parts to you in a week, another might take 3 weeks.

That's what you need, yes. You need to be sure you buy a setup that has the glass AND the LCD. You have to replace both :)
