Re: recommended model for tethered shooting.

Sorry for the delay in responding. It was a very busy week at the office. Now that's a very helpful recommendation.  I was unable to find any 450s on Canon's refurbish listings, but did purchase a used 450 body from Ebay for $150 + shipping . It should arrive today.  I also ordered an AC adapter kit and Tokina AF 100mm f/2.8 AT-X M100 Pro D Macro Lens new (arrived yesterday!?!) for $437. So except for the suggested sftwr I got everything for just under $600. Perfect numbers!

Can't wait to start playing. I'll start using the Canon sftwr first to see what it has to offer.

 

Thanks again

Thanks again

I don't know?  Once you see how much better any Rebel is to a P&S or much less a iphone  Smiley Sad, you may want to jump right in there with the rest of us.  One lens is never enough!  They are addictive. Smiley Happy

Happy shooting...........

EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV and several lenses!
