Last wedding I was at, there were 3 professional photographers hired (2 actually taking photos, the 3rd one shooting the video).

Of course when I got there, I saluted them. The main photographer was using a D700/18-70 combo, the auxiliary was using a 1Ds2/24-70 and a 400D/70-200 2.8 IS. The videographer was using a Sony camera (and he told me he also owned a 5D2/24-105 combo).

I took my 1000D and my 24-105 and 70-300.
Funny thing is that when I said hello, they looked down to see what gear I had. :P

They were super cool with me! We even helped each other in some situations and we spent a great time talking about photography in general.

Same thing happened last Sunday. I was at a place where there were quite a few pro photographers. When I arrived at the scene, they all started looking at my gear - 50D/24-105/580EX + 1000D/17-40/430EX2. People tend to assert the "pedigree" of a photographer by his/her gear!
Well... it isn't that unfair! How likely is a 1D4/70-200 2.8 IS II owner to be a pure amateur? ;)

I don't cover logos. Used to do that on my 1000D: I had the "1000D" logo covered up. I did that because I didn't want to put up with "entry-level a**holes" who arrogantly thought they were "better" than I just because they had a 600D (with a kit lens) and didn't even bother to notice the "red ring of gLory".
Now I don't bother anymore. :) I take both cameras with me. ;)

That's a lot of ISO. How do you get the pic to be so grain-free?

Who says college students have to eat bad food??

Heres my home-made white-wine marinara sauce over linguini, to start the meal I made a small caesar salad.

It was the only one I took at ISO6400 that night. I accidentally overexposed it about 2 stops. I expected some banding but there was none. I've been pretty reluctant to go into the expanded ISO's, but 3200 was doing great that night so I kicked it up a notch just to see.

Luminance noise reduction was set to 30. There was a bit of noise, but bringing the exposure down made it less noticeable.

Really thinking about swaping my 550D for a 50D soon, would love the body and speed.. The only thing bothering me would be the ISO performance, but that seems like a fair tradeoff, you just can't get it all! :D

I've actually been pretty impressed with this camera's ISO performance, though I came from a 500D so it was pretty similar, as for everything else (minus video obviously) the 50D blows my old rebel out of the water!
