Default The Canon Digital Rebel

I just bought a digital rebel ( Finally ) on ebay for a great deal. Anyways I did a search a while back on this site and it brought up some peoples photos that shoot with the digital rebel only because they had put digital rebel in there caption line. So does anyone else here shoot photos with the digital rebel? If so could you post a link to your photos so I can check them out? Thanks!

Default Digital Rebel

Ryan-

I've been using the Digital Rebel since Nov. 2003, and most of my photos on RP.net are from the Rebel. Older photos are either film scans, or in a couple of cases from a Nikon D1 or D1H.

Keep in mind that all of these photos have been greatly compressed, you won't be seeing anything even close to what the camera is capable of. I've made 24x30 prints and there is virtually no pixelation visible.

Here's a recent shot that should give you a good idea of the Rebel's abilities:http://www.railpictures.net/viewphoto.php?id=92770

If you're really bored, just click on the link below to see a few hundred Digital Rebel photos

Default Rebel

I been using the Rebel for the past four month or more and prior to that from mid March 04 a D30 so you can see what I do with the Rebel I don't have hundreds but I enjoy the camera I shoot manual most of the time. There are a few snap shots where I wasn't expecting a train that are on auto. The rest manual I love it .....Ken

Default Manual!

Ryan-

I think I can safely say that all of my D Rebel photos were taken in manual mode. A long time ago when I was just starting to get serious about photography I typically shot in aperture priority. Well, on a trip to Canada, I was using a long telephoto to shoot an Ontario Northland train on an overcast day, and this train had ditchlights (this was before they were common in the US). The camera was all set and the train comes around the curve with ditchlights and headlights shining right into the camera. My shutter speed jumped from 1/350 to 1/2000! Needless to say, that shot was trash and from that day on, I've shot nothing but manual mode.

Enjoy the new camera!

-Wade

Over the years, I've shot with a Honeywell Pentax Spotmatic, Yashica 2 1/4 x 2 1/4, Pentax 6 x 7, Pentax K-1000, and Nikon N2020, of all the cameras, I'm having the must fun with the 300D.

Here are a couple of photos from the 300D:

WOW! From looking at the shots you guys have showed me I can definetly say this camera is great! The quality of the photos are crystal clear. I shoot automatic with my Rebel Ti but sometimes as Jim mentioned it can really mess up the shot. So im going to have to start to learn how to use the manual modes. I have shot night shots a few times before. But i really didnt know what I was doing. Thanks again everyone. Awesome shots!

Default Manual Exposures

Ryan-

Here are a few numbers for you to remember: 1/500, f6.3 @ ISO 100. That's what I use as my standard exposure for sunny days. If you're photographing a properly lit train under sunny conditions, this exposure works perfectly 99% of the time. If you're shooting very early in the AM, or about one hour before sunset, you'll need to increase your exposures. Light cloud cover will also require you to add to the exposure, usually anywhere from 1/3 of an F stop to a full F stop, depending on how thick the clouds are.

In summary, full sun = 1/500, f6.3 @ ISO 100.

-Wade

Everyone of my pics on here beween June 16th, 2004 and December 2004, were taken with a digital rebel. It is an excellent camera, to say the least.

See details for exposure settings...

Ryan, I can think of no two chaps more qualified
than Wade and Ken to teach you about the capabilities
of your Digital Rebel, as well as rail photography
in general. They're both two of the best.

Ryan, if you want to learn more about photography, be sure to look at Dave "POTW" Kerr's shots too

There are some amazing photographers on this site, you'll learn a good bit about photography by simply looking at the photos posted on RP.net.
