I know there's plenty of fellas on here that take photos and there's probably a heap more that take photos and not post them, just seeing if there's enough interest in just general photography chat.

I've starting playing with an 1100d again. I had fun with it trying to learn about it, then using it in Japan but as soon as I got back I ran out of shit to take pictures of. It's been fun picking it up again though. I just have the kit lens and usually use a 50mm. I was looking into getting a 40mm at reading how perfect they are for just general street photography but realised tonight they mean for full frame cameras. I might be better off persisting with the 50.

What gear does everyone have our use? I'm sure there's plenty of non-car photography around here too, post it up.

Since the 1100D is a x1.6 crop, the 50mm will be actually b a 80mm.

I currently have a 5D3 with a 24-70mm, 17-40mm & a 70-200mm. They don't get used very often these days though.

Aside from automotive photography, I started getting into some astro stuff.

Yeah that's super cool. Astrophotography interests me but doesn't seem doable with my current setup. I started looking at 5d mk1 bodies but I'm obviously much better off saving my money and just using what I've got.

5D and a ef 20mm is my main go to using monopod, easy as to get a good pic of nearly anything.

Have mixture of lens but always end up back on the 20mm.
Will post some pics up on my comp when I'm home.

I have this as well, i bought the mark v for overseas last year. I wanted a compact with a view finder because I can't take straight photos ( I can't draw a straight line with a ruler either) and the leveler helps me heaps. 

All my videos are grainy and blurry. I know i fucked the settings some how. im a complete novice with this stuff.

I've only got the iii cause im poor but it works sweet, been using it for product shots lately just on auto and the results are actually sick

 

I fully had to watch a couple youtube videos on how to set up the video mode, but i ended up just on the using the AVC mode 1080 50i from memory, and basically just leave most other video settings on auto is best results so far, oh actually i changed the colour setting but thats personal preference so i look more tanned hahaha
