I ordered some stuff off of deal extreme a couple weeks ago. figured they would be some well used products for me in general. Also the best part is that the C1 remote has the half click, took forever to find a decent one that had that option. Later on I'll get one that has the programability. For now though this should satisfy me for a short while, well at least until the craving for new stuff gets too much... lol.

05483 (http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.5483) - Universal Digital SLR Remote for Pentax / Nikon / Canon / Konica Minolta
17324 (http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.17324) - Premium 8X Macro-Effect Camera Lens Filter (58mm)
27996 (http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.27996) - YongNuo RS-802/C1 Remote Shutter Switch for Canon 1000D/Pentax K20D/Samsung GX-20 + More

I've been messing with it all so far and I'm really surprised to far at this stuff. I've probably spent the last hour going around the house taking pictures of random things and just screwing around testing it all out. I'm mostly surprised with the 8x macro effect lens filter / adapter. It really does a nice job.

So far I've completely filled the frame of the cam with a quarter and I've gotten some really good results. I'll upload and convert files in a little bit to show the quality of it so far.

Also the wireless remote for the camera activates the camera really well. The T2i will actually auto focus when this is used, which is a nice plus!
S - focus then shoot
2S - focus, wait 2 seconds and shoot

in video mode:
2S - activates the recording or stopping of recording.
S - focuses and takes a shot.

These are the only buttons that work for the T2i so far to my knowledge. The S-with zoom does nothing for this camera unfortunately, but I was expecting that. This should also make for some fun screwing around with friends as they are trying to take shots as well. (WTH does this damn thing keep firing randomly.....)

Also the wired remote is great as well. I'm loving that one a lot. Should make some good stuff in general.

BTW: I didn't do any sharpening on the quarter at all.

EDIT: never mind, I reuploaded this one just a sec ago, it's now been sharpened.

yeah, I'm really surprised that i don't get all kinds of distortion at the edges. i was actually expecting a lot of that with only a clear center but that's not the case with this at all

I needed one of these in 77mm for this (http://newschoolofphotography.com/critique/24922-its-little-things.html) thread.




Do you think I should go with 4x starting off, or should I just buy the 8x?

it all depends on what you plan on shooting. I personally wouldn't mind a 10x for bugs and such.

I would like to be able to shoot some really small stuff.. maybe I should go for the 8x.

well the pics I took are with the 8X, so maybe you should go with the 10X, that's what I would much rather have for really small stuff.

Well.. the 10x is cheaper than the 8x, AND it comes with a carrying pouch. I think that seals the deal.
