I bought my Digital Rebel, and the next day had a business trip to DAY
. While in ATL
, I shot about 200 photos in mediocre weather with my shiny new Digital Rebel, and the nice little Circular Polarizer filter. NOT a good idea.
All my shots were WAY dark. They looked OK
on the review screen, but when I uploaded to my PC
I was horrified to see they all looked like they had been shot through a welding mask. The Canon dealer reccommended the polarizing filter, and I told him it looked a bit dark, but he said it wouldn't affect the photo's that much. I paid him a visit afterwards and showed him my results!
The only photo from that visit to ATL
that made it into the d/b:

I now use that polarizer as a coaster!
and FL350 - one thing you should add to your checklist - you mentioned CF card empty and formatted - always make sure it's in the CAMERA when you leave the house - not the READER! I did that a couple months ago as well! Caught a KC
-10 on short final, fired off a bunch of BEAUTIFUL shots, only to see "No CF Card" in the preview screen!!! ARGH!!!
