Slide 1: ==== ==== For More Great Tips on the Canon Eos 550d Rebel t2i check out this video review here... www.canoneos550drebelt2i.vanquishx.com ==== ==== When I wrote the article "5 Lenses You Must Have for Canon EOS 7D", I realised that there are a lot of cropped sensor users who were keen to consider what they should buy for their gear. Keeping the total investment as low as possible, here is a list of 6 items which I believe are must haves to get the most out of your Canon EOS 550D. 1: Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 Mk II The Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 Mk II is without a doubt the best value for money lens you can buy. Not only will you get a lot of shooting out of it, the quality is almost as good as the f/1.4 version. While the build quality will not earn much praises, it is definitely good enough to last you long enough that when it does eventually gets damaged, you will have no hesitation getting a replacement. This is definitely the best lens to start with in the world of Canon primes and it's very rare that you'll see a dissatisfied owner. You may move to better options but you'll be hard pressed to find anything remotely close in terms of value for money. 2: Canon EF-S 55-250mm F4-5.6 IS Lens The Canon EF-S 55-250mm F4-5.6 IS Lens is a very economical option for those who need to shoot telephoto. With a 35mm equivalent of focal range of 88-400mm, this lens will give you plenty to play with as you understand your 550D better. It comes with image stabilisation so you comfortably shoot handheld under decent light conditions. Are there better telephoto options you can consider, sure... but unless you are determined to do a lot of telephoto shooting, this lens will allow you to invest your money into other areas of your gear. Either that, or save it towards getting the 70-200 f/2.8L IS II. Once you've mastered the 55-250, you will be ready to get your money's worth out of this much more expensive upgrade. 3: Transcend 16GB Class 6 SDHC Memory Card A memory card is without a doubt a very important component in your overall workflow. Some prefer to have multiple cards (which I wholeheartedly agree with) while others will always go for the largest sizes possible so they won't be interrupted with a full card. I currently shoot with multiple Transcend 16GB Class 6 SDHC memory cards as the price for these are much more reasonable than their 32GB counterparts and at the same time, give you enough room for a large mix of JPEGs, RAWs and HD movie files. If your budget allows, I would say go for the Sandisk 16GB SDHC Extreme Class 10, but considering that its price is almost double that of the Transcend, you'll just have to decide if the additional performance is worth the cost. My Transcend cards have been good to me so far but then I tend to shoot in fair conditions and treat my cards very carefully on my social shoots. However, with work related shooting, I always go with the Sandisk for the extra peace of mind.
Slide 2: 4: Canon Battery Grip BG-E8 I have mentioned many times that I love to shoot portraits and so the vertical grip is one of the main reasons I have a battery grip on my camera. Other reasons to be considered include your hand size as well as the amount of shooting you will be doing. Many male shooters may find that the 550D to be a tad small for their hands and so with a grip attached, it feels a lot more comfortable and reassuring. For those with smaller hands, the grip issue with or without the battery grip will be less important and most would likely find it equally comfortable even with the grip added. If you shoot for a long while and more importantly, if you shoot lots of video with your DSLR, the additional battery slot allows to you shoot continuously without interruption. Another thing about the battery grip which many overlook is the ability to take AA batteries. When travelling, I always have the AA battery carriage with me so that if I run out of battery at a scenic location, I can resort to shooting on AA batteries and not miss the opportunity for some great shots. 5: Canon LP-E8 Battery Pack This Canon LP-E8 Battery Pack is really a follow on from the Battery Grip but even if you decide the battery grip is not for you, I would still recommend getting extra batteries. After all, you don't have the option to fall back on AA batteries without the grip so if you run out of power, you need to have your charger, a power socket and a bit to time before you can keep shooting. If theses inconveniences are not an issue for you then you are definitely a very lucky shooter. I have the habit of having at least three batteries for my camera model at all times when I shoot anything remotely serious or will be travelling. Battery failures are a lot less common nowadays but you never know and can't be too careful. 6: Tamron SP AF17-50mm F/2.8 XR Di II VC LD Aspherical [IF] Now, items one to five are definitely items which I recommend you get regardless but the Tamron SP AF17-50mm F/2.8 XR Di II VC LD Aspherical [IF] has a touch of extravagance to it though it's very much justifiable. If your budget is really tight, then just you should get the Canon 550D with the 18-55mm kit lens and save this option for another day. However, if you want to really get some shallow depth of field in the standard focal range then this lens is definitely one of the best options with an attractive price tag. I always advocate the VC (Vibration Control) version, especially if you are going to take advantage of the movie shooting with the 550D (You WILL notice the difference!) If you don't shoot much video, then the Tamron SP AF 17-50mm F/2.8 XR Di II LD Aspherical would be a cheaper option that shoots just fine handheld in most cases.
