Really in the present scenario the Html5 scripting is getting boomed. Not only for the web but also for application development it is being used. What you have written in your article, its just a casting, there is still yet to be come.

Go throw this also

So pretty! I've just done a macro feature journal and I'm going to race over and add this :eager:

thank you very much! i cant wait till i get an actual macro lens to take more macro photos. i love macro!

I love macro too but there seems to be a lot to learn about it LOL You could maybe try some extension tubes before you get a macro lens? The ones without controls are very cheap but you have to manually adjust everything on your camera. Even the aperture control deactivates and your only adjustment is ISO and shutter speed as far as I've worked out so far.

oh hell yeah there is alot to learn! this is my first dslr and its a whole other animal compared to my 12 year old sony cybershot. lol. that had the macro function built into it. i noticed you have a d3100. i tried that camera out and ended up returning it because i wanted the d5100. lol. what kind of lens do you have because your macro looks good! all i have is a 18mm-55mm right now.. debating on trying extention tubes or just going out and just getting a macro lens.

Yes, this is my first DSLR too. I've had it for 18 months now, and a very steep learning curve is still in progress LOL

Yes, I love the D3100 but I know we all have different tastes and needs. My son has an old D300 and my best friend has the D5100 like you. We all love our cameras :nod:

I've got 2 Tamron lenses - the 18-270 which I wouldn't swap for the world and a 1:1 macro that I'm truly still learning to master. The worst problem, that took me months to find, was that the camera diopter wasn't set correctly for me. With the long lens I use auto-focus so it didn't matter but with the macro I use manual and just couldn't understand why shots that looked perfect as I took them were turning out blurred. Much frustration and heartache later I discovered the problem.

Extension tubes on your 18-55 lens are a very cheap option if you're willing to put up with the problems. Or you can buy more expensive extension tubes that *will* auto function. In Australian dollars the cheap ones were $15 on eBay and the expensive ones would have been nearer $100. I do enjoy my macro lens, even more now I've got the diopter adjusted :stupidme: LOL The Tamron lenses are a lot cheaper than the 'real brands' and I've been very happy with them. Other people say you should buy a cheap camera but expensive lenses.

You're very lucky in America to be able to take products back when you don't like them (I mean your camera). In Australia, once purchased, it's yours and they'd laugh if you tried to exchange it.

I used to have a Nikon 18-55 and a 55-200 lenses that came with the camera but they drove me insane when I had to wrong lens on for the purpose. The 18-270 is worth its weight in gold - though it is rather heavy to carry around. But definitely worth it :squee:

its not that i didnt like the d3100! i just ended up going for the d5100 because it has a swivel LCD screen and more mega pixels. =) we bought them both at best buy and it was easy for us to return because we took it back the next day saying we bought the wrong camera. lol.

honestly i think im leaning more toward the tamron or nikkor marco lens rather than getting extenstion tubes.. something that i can be switched to auto focus or manual focus when ever i need. can you post me a link to the 1:1 macro lens you are using? so many differnt lenses and trying to make a decision on what i want to get is making my head spin! lol. thanks!

It's funny with the D3100, my photos are usually in the high 4 meg mark, occasionally up to 6 meg and you're right, that's not very large.

Best Buy sounds great. Once we've opened the box we can only return things if they're faulty and even then (at times) they'll send it off for repair and you're without the item for weeks it's so annoying!

I hope you find the perfect macro lens for you anyway. The strangest thing with them is zooming the 'wrong way' but that's just quirky, it's not a problem.
