T1i

I'm new to photography and barely know the basics of my T1i Rebel by Canon.

I was hoping anyone of you could give me some basic advice about the different modes, ISO, shutter speed, and anything else that could be useful. I currently usually shoot in either auto,macro (for butterflies), and sometimes in Manual mode, but have difficulty using it.

My pictures come out decent, but I know there's always room to improve.

Thanks for the help and advance and best of luck!

Hi enthousiast.

Not quite sure whether this would help, but try DP Review's writeup of the camera and the associated forum comments:
http://www.dpreview.com/products/can.../canon_eos500d
The story, comments and links should keep you busy for a while.

Then go to the Bird Forum Digiscoping discussions, where you will find helpful people who are really experts.
