    dance pics

    it's interesting to see what a dslr can do. i've shot a lot in this room with the g3, g5, sony s6000, and so on (you can see them in the dance category galleries). yesterday i broke down and used the xti with a 50 1.4. all of these have been cropped to about half. a different experience.

    tried the xsi with canon 85 1.8. not much different than the xti. guess i'll have to go full-frame to get any better. and my goal has always been to be able to take dance shots with a compact, and sometimes they're interesting. i'd really like to see what someone can do with the g10 and the lx3.

    it's so easy to get spoiled by these dslrs. luckily, we can't carry one everywhere. waiting for sigma to get a 2.0 lens on its dp series.

    Hi Wayne,

    You have really caught a moment in the first image. Very nicely timed.

    I know what you mean about a fast lens on the Sigma. That could be very interesting indeed. Both speed and depth of field wise.

    hi ed,

    thanks! yes, i think it's just a matter of time until the compacts catch up with the dslrs. sigma seems to me on the right track. will has been taking some great shots with the dp1.

    best,

    a 40d showed up on the local craigslist for $500. i rushed off yesterday morning to paradise 20 miles away and threw away the money (not really, the camera turned out to be barely used by a part-time wildlife photographer). shot some dance pics with it later in the afternoon. much more responsive than the xti.

    just posted some photoshoot pics. good to remember what the dslr (new 40d) can do in relation to the small sensors. the small ones seem to differ much more in character and to have an individual stamp. on the other hand, if you want to impress people with reality...
