    One Year Ago Today

    i made the best decision in my life and moved my family and I to Wylie, TX. and though there have been hurdles to cross, I can't think of a more perfect place for us. I am always amazed at the warmth and support i have received here...even from total strangers. the bike community here is awesome...

    Photo Monkeys

    Well since some piece of crap stole my ENTIRE camera kit from my car this weekend, I get to go shopping. Looking for a fast zoom lens to replace my 17-25 2.8 Tamron. Good lens but want something with more range 18-200ish. Any suggestions? Not partial to brand but its going on a Nikon.

    Photo Monkeys

    Getting some new photo gear together for my upcoming trip. Wondering if anyone has tried out the budget Pocket Wizards. I'm looking at some ebay stuff and The Cactus V2s and the Radio Poppers (not that much cheaper than PWs) Also, hows the Nikon SB-24 as a cheaper/smaller/lighter travel flash?

    Photography for a newb…

    Yeah I know, another photography thread…. Well, I think I’d like to give photography a try to see if I like it. I have a decent point and shoot (Canon Powershot A640) that has more settings than I know what to do with. I’ve found P.O.T.N. and Fred Miranda but these sights are obviously...

    I did something stupid.

    Warning: Lots of camera and computer terms contained within. On the 4th of July, there was an epic BBQ at my house. I was hammered for approximately 12 hours, and 80 people showed up to join in the festivities. Myself and my roomie were running around with my camera (a digital SLR), taking lots...

    Canon v. Sigma (calling photomonkies)

    Evening all, I've got a Canon 350D with the bog standard kit lens, so was looking to get something with a larger zoom so that I dont need to get quite so close to the action when at Ft. Bill and the like (seriously, Kovarik and Rennie scared the sh*t out of me!). So I've been looking at...

    foto monkeys...need advice

    just started taking pictures. I got a canon eos400d for a nice price with the 18-55mm lens kit from canon. They seem ok but I would like to have some better lenses. Since I'm on a budget I'm considering a 50mm. I don't know which one to chose. My main two options are the EF 50mm f/1.8 or the...

    Digital Camera Problem

    I seem to have misplaced the disc for my Canon digital camera in our last move. My comp won't recognize the camera through the USB now and Canon seems to restrict it's downloads I guess, and near as I can tell it doesn't need a driver to talk to the computer. Is there another software I can...

    Photo monkeys: Need gear help

    My wife has always been a pretty good race day/rugby day photographer. However, with shooting a lot lately she has wanted to take her game up a step or two. Right now she is shooting with a D70 that she really likes with an assortment of lenses. She's getting pretty good with it, but what's...
