Getting ready to buy a new lens for our upcoming trip. I am so new to DSLR and am so confused. I want to get some awesome photos . . . . what lens do you use and does it take great photos? Especially at night?

As Indy would say, a tripod! But getting back to a lense, something with a good range and some kind of anti-shake. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  982.3 #3 10:08AM
I am going to bring my tripod this trip, we'll see if I actually take it in the parks! What lens do you use CDKG? - DizneyGirl  712.1 #7 10:12AM
Diz, you have the Canon right? Tri pod is probably the key. Wish I knew more about it but I'm just learning myself. - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #18 10:24AM
I generally shoot with my 18-105 mm lens. I have a 70-300 mm telephoto lens, but only used it once. I'm guessing you won't need that kind of lens in the parks. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  982.3 #3 10:28AM
@jalex, yes I do - DizneyGirl  712.1 #7 10:51AM
I use the 18-55mm lens and occasionally 55mm-250mm for zoom. The larger lens has image stabilizer. You can use the night shot setting but a tripod is the way to avoid blurring your pics in low light. - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #18 11:17AM
A tripod will help, but it's not needed. You can shoot with a basic night portrait setting and get some pretty decent shots. Jalex will be able to better assist you since he's the Canon guy of the group. - IndyandMarion  1278.9 #1 11:13AM
I have a canon t3 and my general purpose and all around awesome lens I use is my 28-135 lens. It's an awesome walk around lens - Happyplace82  26.9 #133 3:35PM
Thanks everyone!! - DizneyGirl  712.1 #7 7:32PM
All of my shots (most are on flickr or DL side) are either from the 18-55mm or 55-250mm and I really don't have a need for another lens. I also have a Sigma 10-20mm super wide angle, but that mainly just sits in my bag during trips to the park. I have gotten many very detailed shots at night and on dark attractions (Haunted Mansion, Pirate, etc) from these lenses Feel free to check my profile on the DL side for examples.) - CM_Shadowgamer  2391.0 #49 8:04PM
POTC and haunted mansion shots are tough for us newbies! - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #18 8:37PM
Do you mind if I ask what you flickr account is? Would love to take a look. - DizneyGirl  712.1 #7 8:40PM
http://www.flickr.com/photos/shadowgamer85/ I really need to go through and clear out some of the bad photos I did when I first got into photography. - CM_Shadowgamer  2391.0 #49 8:50PM
As for POTC and mansion shots, I use a 1/20 shutter speed and manual focus. The speed assures there is enough light and is still fast enough not to blur (minus super dark areas) while the manual focus makes it so the camera will take a picture regardless of if it will be bad or not (just focus it to where it's sharp and it won't be an issue). If you try this with autofocus, it will sometimes think the settings are off for the light level and not take the picture, hence the use of manual. - CM_Shadowgamer  2391.0 #49 9:10PM
Thanks for the tip on the manual setting. I'll play around with that so I can take some low light shots hopefully better results next time for me!๎— - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #18 6:19AM
Thanks for all the tips! - DizneyGirl  712.1 #7 7:19AM
