Default Canon 10D question...

What are your opinions regarding landscape pics taken with the 10D? Is there a lens best suited for landscape shots? Also, any
"tips" regarding digital landscape photography?

FYI

http://www.stevesforums.com/phpBB2/v...849&highlight=
Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM first shot and
Sigma EX 17-35mm f/2.8-4 HSM 2nd shot... you can tell from the perspective that 28mm is not much of a wide angle (after the 1.6x factor)!

Several more pictures with the Sigma EX 17-35mm f/2.8-4

Yeap, use a polarizer for large body of water and sky scenes...

Landscapes are the easiest to take picture of! They don't move :P :P :P

Your answer is like photography -- simple is best! (Hope this message gets tacked on..did I comment correctly?)

I don't do many landscapes, so I don't have much experience.

Here is something to think about, though. Landscapes can be hard for some camers, if you try to print them out fairly large. This is because they have a lot of detail in them (all those leaves, or buildings, or slate roofs...) and that detail is hard to capture in the cheaper cameras. You need a lot of closely packed photosites (the individual light sensoring parts of the sensor chip) to be able to represent the fine detail.

Now the 10D sensor chip is rather packed, so it should do a good job with them. But as NHL points out, getting a lens that has a good wide angle on it is hard. I love the 1.6x crop for the longer reach... but it's a killer for landscapes 'cause most really wide angle lenses are expensive!

BTW - Since landscapes do not move... sometime you have to wait all day for the sun to come around (or wake up early to catch that first light)! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Ugh... don't remind me. And I am most certainly not a morning person (as anyone who has seen the timestamp on some of my posts can attest.)
