Photography Wish List

Ok folks, so after countless hours of research and recommendations from the photographer I've been working with, this is the initial combination of photography equipment I'm thinking of buying:

1. Camera: Canon EOS 40D 10.1 MP Digital SLR Camera

2. Lens: Canon EF 50mm F/1.8 1.8 II Lens

I can find both of these on Ebay for a combination of about $500, which considering my budget at this point is about $12, I have a feeling this is as close as I'm going to get. Any photographers out there have any advice for me? I'm an open book!!

Keep these requirements in mind:

- I'd use it for action/journalism shots more than portrait shots
- Some landscapes
- Extremely low budget

Any words of wisdom?


  1. No joke- I just got that 50mm in the mail like 20 minutes ago and it's amazing. I only have a Canon Rebel XS though.

  2. I want a new camera also! If only I had the money...

  3. That camera looks so nice. I am going to Cancun in December and would love to have it. The quality of the pictures must be so nice. I am also a college student, so I will have to keep dreaming :) I found you in the Friday hop and would love it if you could return the follow love back. Thanks Marlee :)

  4. I'm a photographer, and that setup is perfect for your needs. Every photographer should have a 50mm lens in their arsenal, and the 1.8 is a good start. If you've found the combo of them on ebay for $500, then buy it! It's a steal of a deal :)
    Good luck!
