Found an awesome in-depth overview of flash photography with a Canon EOS body. The site explains the different terminology TTL vs A-TTL vs E-TTL vs E-TTL II.

Yikes, the amount of info is already getting a bit unwieldy. I may have to try and further subcategorize this weekend, or at the least rearrange. I feel a couple of things aren't necessarily in the right place, so I'll go through it this weekend and fix anything.

Oh, and don't forget The GIMP as a free Photoshopesque program.

And, if you want, you can include Dell as a retailer. Their prices are normally pretty bad, but if you stack coupons you can get some great deals. I originally bought my Rebel XT from Dell two years ago for a price that BH, Adorama, and Beach couldn't even match.

Thanks, although I've only contributed about 3% of what's up there :D.

Under Picture Hosting: how about a mini "do-it-yourself" picture hosting guide? As far as buying a domain, getting a webhost, and FTP'ing your photos?

I think many, many people use their own domains to host photos...and nothing else. It would be nice to have a little guide in your OP to help people develope this process. I currently have my own website, but there isn't an actual "site." I use the space and domain primarily for transfering photos, or hosting photos for various reasons.

Just a thought :)

Great thread BTW!! :thumbsup:

I just added links to some photo book printing sites. I'm thinking about trying one of these out pretty soon.

I wonder if this thread can be made sticky by the mods... it's got a lot of great links.

I'm thinking of adding a FAQ to the top post soon. If you guys have any suggestions, I'll be more than happy to take them.

A few more resources:

Site for finding models:
OneModelPlace

Lens rental:
RentGlass (haven't used them yet)

Free web album internet applications
(i.e. web albums that you set up if you have your own website)
SimpleViewer
ZenPhoto

For those who don't have their own website but want a good site to host their photos, I'd recommend Smugmug, Zenfolio, Pbase- these are the ones most used at DPReview. I can personally vouch for Smugmug as being very good. They also offer a coupon for $5 off their subscription if you use referral codes - PM me if you're interested in trying out Smugmug and I'll give you the coupon code.

I would add Badger Graphic Sales to the trusted list of sources for equipment. I have ordered a few things from there including my 24-105 f/4 IS when it was brand new - they had a special on it like $200 less than B&H.

I think it's run by just one guy, but he's awesome. I've talked to him on the phone when I was in a crunch and needed some equipment fast for a wedding the coming weekend. No hassle and he went above and beyond to get me what I needed on time.

www.badgergraphic.com

They don't have a lot of RR reviews, but all of them are 100%:

Something likes LowesPRO 200AW 200AW,

PAQ Slingshot BP-04003 PAQ BP-04003,

KATA T-212 T-212
for those who have a few lens to carry?

Do you have any links that point to webpages that discuss carrying packs in particular? I don't want to start listing individual links for all the bags and packs out there, that would defeat the purpose of this thread.
