    Entry Level Rolex - Air King 14010 taken with my Entry Level DSLR - Canon 1000D

    Got an entry level DSLR (Canon 1000D). Shots of my favorite watch, an entry level Rolex...my Air King 14010. Entry level ain't so bad....I love them both!

    Great watch, and great shots.

    If I could just make one minor comment - it may just be me but it seems that the shots are just a tad out of focus?

    Cool watch but I'd have to agree with Ben that these pictures are out of focus. Practice makes perfect!

    Yep. Tad bit out of focus. Though to my eye that seems to be low light camera shake lack of focus, and not lens out of focus, out of focus.

    Beautiful watch though. There is absolutely nothing wrong with entry level. I look at it as maximizing the fun per dollar.

    Thanks guys for the comments. Though I have to agree with Ben, Jarrod and The Walrus about the pictures being out of focus. I have to agree about the low light camera shake. I've just been using the standard settings...still not confident fidgeting with the manual settings as I still have to learn what works best with different conditions. I don't like flash since it is unnatural. And I've been delaying getting that tripod which should help out a lot. Only realized upon posting the pictures that shots that look vivid on the camera lcd appear "slightly" out of focus when enlarged or posted.

    I'd love to solicit some advice from you guys on settings I can use on my Canon 1000D that comes with the 18-55mm kit lens. Would help me a lot on shortening the learning curve.

    Hope Ben, Jarrod, and the Walrus can give me some tips. And Kandyredcoi, do you use your camera for watch photography?

    Thanks guys. Hope you all had a great Christmas.

    love those pix - and there are nothing wrong with an entry level DSLR. it is all about the vision, hands and lighting

    the first close up shot would be amazing if done with a tripod/beanbag

    yes i do, i have since upgraded to a Canon 5DMK2 with a 17-40L lens, i need to get a macro lens tho to make the details much better on the watches

    usually in low light conditions i would bump up the iso with your camera i'd go to 1600

    and you might need a faster lens, f/2.8 or faster, the kit lens is no good for low light shots

    or you can always use a tripod to prevent shake when the camera compensates for low light with extended shutter speeds

    hope that helps out,
