While searching for a potential upgrade to my Rebel XTI (400D) camera, I came across a message thread about a new firmware hack for Rebel XTI.I've given it a try and after the hack, it seems to work as advertised.It now has ISO3200 and some more ISO settings in between the default ISO settings, like ISO500.The most interesting thing to me is the added spot metering mode.At one time, I was considering if I should upgrade to a Rebel XSI for the extra metering mode.One other added feature... continue reading

Finally after a long time in photography and then an exciting time in stock photography, I finally ordered for my new DSLR.

I also am going to pick up the Canon EF 50mm f1.8 lens as my first lens for it. continue reading
I have found it very difficult to find "acceptable" stock images from my previous images.The first issue is image quality my previous camera was a Canon Powershot s80.And while the images are very nice when blown up to 8x10, you can definitely see a difference in quality between the rebel Xti even with the kit lens.The second issue is content.I previously wasn't really shooting for microstock (I only became aware of this market in early January).So far, this is the only accepted image... continue reading
