Please HELP!! Canon 400D & Canon Rebel XT Lenses

I am try to learn more about canon lenses,I have a Canon 400D and Canon Rebel XT , I mostly take Portraits of individuals, family's ect mostly outdoors some indoors and I would like eventually like to have a portable indoor set up,I need a idea of a close up and a good lens that would take more of a distance pic , I would like to no what mm would be good??? and would they be interchangeable with both Cameras.. Also If Tamron lenses work just as well as Canon??? My Budgets would be around $200.00 - $250.00 for each lens . Also for anyone that could explain a little more on how color filters work??

Re: Please HELP!! Canon 400D & Canon Rebel XT Lenses

Hi and welcome to pixalo!

Yep your lenses should be interchangable.....just make sure you get Canon fit ones whrn purchasing

tamron, sigma and canon lenses are all decent.....just do plenty of research on them before purchasing! is there any you have been looking at already? For your macro shots, i know canon and sigma do very good ones, there are different models from 85-100mm approx.

the 50mm lenses are popular for portraits from what i gather (i don't do them!!) but it is also handy to have a wider range for other types of photography. for your 'distance' shots, you more than likely want a zoom with a range up to 200mm. Again, canon Sigma and Tamron do decent zoom lenses within this and within your budget.


I'll let someone else talk about filters!

Steve

You don't need colour filters on a digital camera, and if you have it set to Auto White Balance the camera will try to correct for the filter anyway and negate it. You can change colour balance and add effects in post-processing with an image editor, and that's a more flexible way to go about it.

Re: Please HELP!! Canon 400D & Canon Rebel XT Lenses

Hi

It is usually thought that for portraits a lens with a 80mm to 100mm range is best and fast glass around f2.8. This would be for a shallow Dof. I would go for a zoom lens which would enable framing ease. I use a Sigma 28-70mm f2.8 on my 400D. As this has a cropped sensor the 35mm equivalent is 42-105mm. It's a nice sharp lens also.
