Never actually tried P before, just went straight to manual and learned from my mistakes (about 3000 photos seem do to the trick)
Just for my knowledge though, P basically works out the shutter speed/aperture based on exposure bias? Although it seems you can adjust the aperture too and ISO? *seems even more confusing than manual*

Most important thing i ever learnt was the minimum shutter speed require to avoid shake for each focal length (roughly 1.6 (crop factor) x the focal length) once that was set, i'd adjust the aperture depending on the situation. Although i generally shoot wide open with f1.4 primes then i usually leave ISO on auto since i've capped it to 1600 in the settings anyway.

I'm curious to know what everyone's shutter count is on their T2i. This is one of the few cameas that Canon does not give a expected shutter count lifespan, nor does it have a way to determine the number of shutter firings. So I'm thinking whatever photo file number you are on will be close, right?

My file numbers just got into 8,000.

18,121 or 28,121......i've honestly lost count - glad I opted for that 3 year warranty now.

This was shot with my 100mm f/2.8L IS macro. I used an AB800 strobe on the lowest setting on camera left. Camera settings are 1/160mm at f/2.8 (wide open) and ISO 100. The christmas tree was in the background. I had the camera on a tripod about 2 feet from the snowglobe. The christmas tree was about 20 feet from the snowglobe.

My first "Proper" shot with my 135 F2l. I can't believe how sharp it is wide open. Insane.

Flickr kinda killed the tones a little bit :(

Yes the 135 is insanely good. I borrowed for a while and did not want to give it back. hehe

Just joking about the P guys - I have been on M for about 6 months now. I can more or less tell what the settings need to be but sometimes murky weather give a few problems.

Shutter life on the 550D/T2i should be 100,000-120,000. Read it somewhere.

I am halfway to killing it. Glad to not have got the extended warranty reckoning that I will have a new camera by the time it dies.

Troy - saw that pic when you first posted it but looking at it again I went wow again.

There is something I like about this image...the simplicity and maybe the way the blown out background looks.
