Hello,
I just ordered my first Canon EOS Rebel XS. I cannot wait! I mostly do ghost hunting photography (I know, laugh all you want haha). I am very excited!

Thanks all! I know "ghost" photography seems silly lol, but it is my hobby, and I catch some interesting stuff, whatever they may turn out to be.

I've seen these modern DSLRs work pretty well on embodied people too! Options!

Enjoy the XS, lots of value in that body

Welcome to digital photgraphy!

My first advice is to start saving for your next lens or accessory even if you don't know what it is yet. Wish someone told me this before :p

Yeah, good call on the lens.

for ghost photography, you mainly shoot with the shutter open for several hours in very dimly lit rooms, is that correct? I wonder if the EF 85 f/1.8 would be good...? using ISO 800 maybe...

85mm may be a little on the long side for shooting indoors, especially on the xsi.

Welcome to the forum though. :)

If you need a several hour long exposure, the last thing you want is a fast, wide open lens or high ISO.

But what if its for those really really dark ghosts like you get in Toronto?

You should come to my prison. We've got lots of.....unexplained stuff going on there. Complete with ghost hunts.
