I was wondering if there was a general photography thread on here, but after a brief search, I couldn't find one.

What camera(s)/lens(es) do you have?

I got a Canon 600D with 50mm f/1.8 II lens last week for my birthday, I've recently ordered a 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS II for some telephoto action and I'm planning on ordering an 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II lens when the cheques go through!

Started on a Nikon d3000 (there is now D3100) - Entry Level DSLR

I learnt and outgrew this, now own a Nikon D90 and love it - Expensive hobby though

I have just bought a Canon 5D MK1 second hand with grip. Also have a 17-40 L lens and a 18-270 Tamron lens. It is a very expensive hobby especially if you want to keep up with the latest cameras. The third incarnation of the 5D costs a penny short of three grand.

Advice: Use the 50mm f1.8 and nothing else to learn photography first. Do not use auto mode on the camera, learn to use Aperture mode, or manual mode. It will make you a better photographer.

I'm currently setting up my new Nikon D800. Haven't taken a picture with it yet.

THIS

All I done was took the camera out and learnt what it does, auto mode sort defeats the object of buying a camera with so much capability

Forget the latter - it will seem terrible compared to your 50mm. Save for a 17-55mm - s/h if you have to.

Indeed. Auto mode will try and expose your shot correctly, and it'll have a go at freezing action too, but it will take away your artistic choices and stop you creating the shot the way you want to. Do not use it.
