  10. I need some advice on a camera to purchase. Currently, I have a fujifilm finepix s6800. it has horrible battery life and poor quality photos. I'm looking for a camera that enables me to capture the stars and produce clear moon shots. It's between a Canon EOS Rebel T5i, a Canon EOS Rebel T5, or a Nikon D3200. Any help would be appreciated.

  18. I cant find shutter speed and infinity focus on my camera please help ( Canon EOS 600D)

  19. awesome… thanks for sharing

  20. I use a canon 50D, have some difficulty with nighttime photography, I do like shooting in manual mode, have a question about your comment on achieving the right  focal point, when pointing in the distance during the daytime using auto focus, and then swit ching back  to manual focus for that same focal point at night, Do you keep the same settings on the camera for both nighttime and daytime ? ( eg. Manual Mode, 30" seconds exposure, IOS 3200, white balance to Daylight ), if not what are the settings on the camera when achieving the right focal point in auto focus?,,thanks, looking forward to your reply.
