    Haha, yeah. If I ever picked up diving, I'd probably just get a cheap-ish waterproof compact camera.

    Also, in case someone has like 5k bux sitting around and has a need for some quality prime lenses:

    17-55 f{lol} kit lens - great f'in lens once you figure out it's limits tbh
    17-40 f4
    24-70 f2.8 - the brick - great workhorse of a lens
    70-200 f2.8 IS I
    100mm f2.8 macro
    50 f1.4

    a slew of studio crud and flashes and all the other junk that sounds great to have at the moment heheh.

    Nikon D3100 (was originally going to get a 550D, but airport price meant D3100 + 17-50 would be near the same price as 550D + kit lens)
    Tamron 17-50 f2.8
    Nikon 70-200 f2.8 (bought used, favourite lens)
    Nikon 50mm f1.8 (looking forward to being able to AF it once I get some cash, but will be good learning to MF)

    At the price level, the.camera is hard to beat. But generally speaking Canon, NIKON and Sony are safe bets for point and shoots.

    I use my camera on my HTC Desire HD because I can't be fucked to cart around a camera on the off chance of a decent photo opportunity.

    ATM trying to find a new bag I like and also deciding what lens to get next.
    So any recommendations for Macro lenses? Seen some for omgwtf amounts of money, but any decent ones around the £300 mark? The other alternative I guess is extension tubes attached to the 50mm lens. How do they compare to a proper lens?

    Also I'm basically self teaching myself all this shit slowly, but are there any good books out there? Got linked to a couple of sites but I struggle to sit and read stuff on a computer like that.

    extension tubes will get you similar magnification to a proper macro
    the difference is you will need multi-second exposures unless you have a VERY bright light source
    you'll also lose AF and aperture control unless you buy expensive tubes, on canon (posibly nikon but dont know for sure) you can sploit to get a lens to stay at a different aperture with the aperture preview butan tho so not really a big deal there
    basically extension tubes can be used for macro'ing stuff that doesnt move just fine but if you want to take macros of bugs and shit that moves you need a proper lens
    a proper macro lens can also be used for taking non-macro pics, and has the advantage of proper AF

    tubes are fun and so cheap that i'd recommend you start there anyway
