What ISO setting do you have your camera at? Looks like you're at least in the 800's with the amount of noise.

Do you have a tripod?

Set the camera on a 2-second, if possible, timer, ISO400, with a shutter speed equal to the exposure balance and take the shot. (You could even have the exposure set a bit high to compensate for the lack of light. Play around with shutter speed on M mode, I think it was. It'll adjust shutter speed and exposure.) You need a tripod though.


Now for HeavyArms, could you have him with all his missile pods open and holding both guns? One gun pointed directly at the camera, slightly up. The other gun pointed to the side. Have the head looking slightly upward. Take the shot as if HeavyArms is looking at you. :wiggle:

We should have a gundam photo contest. :chuckles: I just have to remember where I kept mine. :sadpace:

Aww... how about putting the gun in the arm that's not pointed towards the camera?

Play around and post up whatever you take. :thumbup:

if you're going to use a tripod then just lower the iso to 200
If you do this, also play around with the shutter speed/exposure.

I say save your money and apply it to lenses. The Digital Rebel is still a great camera, and getting better glass will only make it better. Then after you've learned even more about photography, and have better lenses it would more sense to upgrade your camera body.

If you plan on staying with Canon, I recommend that you invest in L glass starting with the 17-40 f/4 L. It's about $750 bucks, but it's a great lens. I recently picked it up, and it's on my camera more than any other lens that I own. Also, get a 50mm 1.8, or 1.4. The 1.4 is the better model and chimes in around $350 or so. I own the 1.8 and want to upgrade to the 1.4. The 1.8 can be had for around $100. And one more lens to add to your camera bag that you will absolutely love, is the 70-200 f2.8 IS. It is the most expensive of the three around $1500 or $1600. But, you may be able to find one for less since Canon just recently released a MKII version that now sells for ~$2400.

I know it all sounds expensive, but you have to remember that bodies depreciate and glass pretty much holds its value. As long as you have the good glass, you're going to have photos that have much better color/contrast than cheap lenses. Also, when you start moving up to higher megapixel bodies, you're also going to start seeing more noise in photos, which will only be more pronounced with lesser glass.
