I have a Canon T3, does Sigma make lenses for those?

Love photography and think I have a good eye but am limited because most of my photos are under the sea. Not only do you need the camera but then add a housing which is usually more expensive than the camera.

I hear what you are saying David. I dive with guys that spend mega $$$ on equipment. Some are great photographers, some just take a massive amount of pictures and end up with 1 or 2 that are good. Currently have a Cannon G12 "point and shoot" but has full manual mode. It is affordable and works nicely underwater but has limitations on land.

Usually I don't edit pictures but did take a trial subscription to Lightroom and have played with it. It can do a lot to enhance my pictures and cover any flaws in the shot.

Yes. Yes they do. You're looking for an EF or EF-S lens. The big difference is if they fit on both kinds of Canon cameras (Full-frame and crop sensor - yours is the latter of the two). Most of what you find will be available in EF as that works on both versions of the Canon cameras. If you are buying a lens, try for the EF lens as it will work on a full-frame camera if you ever win the lottery and want to buy a 5D3 or a 1DX.

Evening guys! Just getting in from our trip, had a blast. I am too lazy to pull together a trip report, but I'll try to post more about the trip tomorrow from work.

Hope everyone is doing well.

Both mine did swim lessons, and oldest was on the swim team for a year. She did not like competing, but she became a super strong swimmer.

I have to admit though I punted on Fantasy this week. Benched Colston and Witten in favor of Holmes and Gates. Hopefully I can climb back into contention next week.
Good to hear about your fantasy team. I heard Romo threw an interception on the plane ride home.

What do you have planned? DW insists on having a birthday party on the weekend and then something else on their actual birthday. I always ask why they get two birthday parties. Just more money from the money tree.

I've seen that sign! They have some interesting ones in there DD loves to hit the gem sluce at the shop around the corner from there. She found some emeralds and rubies this time.
.
We were at BG from 11am - 10pm sat, left hotel to head home around 9am Sun,with a WDW trip around the corner I doubt we will be going to Christmas Town, but we do have enough points banked for at least 4 hotel nights, so you never know
Did you go see the show Fiends, I don't know why but that was my favorite

Also Dig It Up was pretty cool

Yeah, All the major third party companies make lenses for both Nikon and Canon. Only when you get into Pentax or Polaroid etc is it questionable.

Dance Monday, open Tuesday, afterschool program Wednesday, Dance Thursday and Friday.

Can't wait to see what life will be like once the little DS grows up and wants to do stuff....
Monday - Dance
Tuesday - Choir; Dance; Cross Country
Wednesday - Dance
Thursday - Cross Country; Soccer
Friday - MY ONLY FREE DAY
Saturday - Soccer
Sunday - Religious Ed; Soccer

Thankfully, once cross country and soccer end, Nutcracker Dance Performance rehearsals and basketball practice and games take their place. Oh, Money tree.....

It sure feels that way, we usually do dinner and a few presents on DDs bday, been lucky that party's before we're just family but with DD in daycare I'm pretty sure she's going to want a big girl party at a bouncy place so that may cost me, DDs birthday is so close to Christmas and I don't want her to feel like they are combined cuz they never have before so Christmas time is always a little more costly

Then don't relocate to KY. Nothing but allergies and sweat here. Well, the bourbon does help you forget about how bad it is.

I was wondering if I had read that right. Still, enjoyed it nonetheless. I usually only follow my NL Central teams - Reds and Cardinals - so this added a bit more to my baseball season.

The Haunted Mansion in WDW during the MNSSHP includes the ghost lady who sits by the entrance, interacts with people, and tells bad jokes. I have a picture of her in one of my trip reports.

My oldests is two weeks after Christmas, so we still do the party thing for the same reason. Actually, it is my youngest one who has a birthday in June that was upset, because most of her friends ended up being on vacation, and only a few of them and family showed up at the birthday party. This year, we did a party on the softball field right after one of their games, so all her team was there. She thought that was the best party ever, and it only cost me money for cupcakes for the team.

I am counting down the days. We leave Friday as soon as the dds get home from school. With no major traffic problems, we should arrive at WDW around 5:00 AM Saturday morning.

In the mail today, I received a notice for jury duty. I had that initial panic that it would be for next week, but it is for the 25th of October. I can't imagine anyone stupid enough to pick me as a juror, but I'm sure crazier things have happened.
