That deal Dell had yesterday on the 350d was just too hard to pass up. I'm excited. Though I'm calling Dell today to see if I can get the deal on the black instead of silver. If not, oh well. I saved $300. Anyway, since this will be my first time using a DSLR, I have some questions. 1. What are the best tips you have for a beginner? What are some habits that I should start getting used to from the beginning? What mode do you shoot in on a regular basis-- full manual? Semi manual (aperture only? shutter only?, etc)? Do you ever use full auto? 2. I'm not trying to spend too much money on this in the beginning. One thing I definately need is a bag. Something that will hold and protect the camera, kit lens, hold a few accessories, and maybe have room for one or two other lens. Any recommendations? 3. I really like fisheye pics. Any recommendations for a decent quality and priced fisheye lens? 4. I read about filters a lot. Are they recommended for a beginner or should I get used to the camera first? If they're recommended for me, any specific recommendations? Any other tips are GREATLY appreciated. Thanks!
