Hey guys, i know literally nothing about cameras in general. i have a decent understanding of the terminology used for photography but not cameras. i got my girlfriend a canon rebel t3i for christmas and i was wondering on some decent lenses and what their applications are. thanks in advance and i imagine you guys get this kind of post all the time and its probably annoying, but i appreciate the help.

unless your GF already knows photography the basic lenses like the 18-55 (usually in a kit with the camera) or the 18-135 (costs some more, but more than double the range) are decent for beginners. the 50mm f/1.8 is also good because it's cheap as fuck at about $100 or less and let's you take photos in a lot less light. now if your GF gets more serious into photography she'll probably want to replace them but til she does, they work just fine.

well shes into photography a lot, her nikon broke and i got her canon because i know the t3i is solid. i just wanted to get her some lenses as a surprise and not really ask her about them. she does a lot of action stuff too. perhaps some good filters or something? her birthday is in 2-3 weeks and i work at bestbuy so i get a heavy discount on photog equipment

something i like but which might not be everyone's cup of tea is a 5 or 10 stop ND filter. it's what people use to get those silky smooth water when at the beach taking photos of the ocean or rivers or other stuff. for a 77mm they cost like $90 though.

for a gimmicky lens that's kind of cheap there's always the lensbaby stuff.

Hey guys. At least I checked if there was already a thread for noobs, so at least give me that credit when/if trolling me to oblivion.
pic related is how I feel and I clicked on the sticky, it has as many pages as the Bible itself and I just want a good camera, etc...
Help. Tell me what section to read, baby me though this.

A good thing to do is to walk around with your kit 18-55 but to keep it to a fixed focal lens all the day long (24, 35, 50... something like that). Then learn by yourself how to compose, exclude things, manage exposure and shit. Do it several times with various focal length, then when you become decent at it (and it will take month), you'll know what is your favorite focal length. Buy your first prime accordingly.

Newfag here, so I just buy the t3i and go from there?
Taking a photography class this semester too, it needs to be digital.

Chances are your teachers first words will be "your camera doesn't matter" or something like that. It's wrong of course but for a photography class, the t3i is ok.

Students will respond to the material presented, as well as complete their own project centered around a selected sociological construct, using digital still equipment and preparing a presentation for the other seminar participants that includes both original photographs and an essay. The course includes discussion of aspects of the social issues addressed and examines the photographic documents place in contemporary culture.

The T3i is fucking fine, you retarded gearfag.

OP, get the T3i, get a 50mm f/1.8 - maybe even get the shitty 75-300mm for like $50 right now, and just go crazy until you get the idea.

It's digital, you can erase.

Your classes will teach you the rest.

Don't get a shitty telephoto lens just because it's cheap, for that much you can get a used kit lens that will be infinitely more useful.

I'm assuming he's getting it new for $500 - kit lens comes with (hence the word kit). $50 for a lens is a fucking steal for practice regardless of the quality.

Ya it's $525 for brand new with that first beginner lense, 18-55. It's on craigslist. It was just received from Amazon.
Since I'm an elec engineer undergrad, it would be noce if thos device could be of use in my career also, and last me a while.
