Default New Rebel

I got my Digital Rebel today and as luck would have it had a junior basketball game to cover this evening for the newspapers. I was impressed with how the camera felt in my hands, very comfortable. I felt it was a big improvement from my Fuji S602Z, which is a good camera. My first impression is that the Rebel will suit my purposes extremely well and I was impressed with the finished product which took very little finishing with Photoshop and/or neat image. It is going to be fun having this camera!

Do you mind advising me on what settings you used? Thanks. I was going to try doing my son's bb game today but am not brave enough yet!

My settings were:

Camera Set at: Tv (Shutter priority)
ISO: 400
shutter speed was 200
with flash
lens: 18-55mm Canon

I shoot on the end line and most shots the lens was about 45mm although some were shot at 55mm. Some of the shots were a little dark and I did process them with Photoshop Elements.

I do plan to get the Canon 50mm F/1.8 EF lens. The extra f/stops would be a great help inside.

At ISO400 you might want to try out the program neatimage to remove the noise from the picture. ISO400 isn't bad, but its a bit noisy if the light it at all low.

Just go to:
www.neatimage.com

and check it out. There is a free version (just as good at removing noise, but lacks other features of the "Pro" version.)

The 50 f1.8 is a nice little lens. I don't use it much, but when I do, it's for that 1.8...

I have NeatImage and highly recommend it to anyone shooting digital images. It does a good job.

Thanks for posting the settings. I was in a really dark gym a few weeks ago and had to shoot at iso 800, but neatimage still cleaned them up pretty well. Any shots you want to share?
