Canon EOS 450D
Advantages: Just the camera itself is an advantage
Disadvantages: The software that is supplied
My husband bought this camera for me after months of pestering, it was bought off Ebay second hand (body only) for around the £450 just over a year ago.
I wanted a really good camera as i wanted to get into photography. I love this camera, like i said i've had it just over one year and i still cant put it down, its an absolutely fantastic camera.
I suffer a little with hand shake, there is NO image stabiliser available, but i do find (when the flash is in use) that the picture takes so fast i wouldn't need an image stabiliser anyway! Colours are perfect the image size is also perfect, I am a Canon convert, it is my first canon camera, its so easy to use and (depending to what lens you have on) its also lightweight. in the year and a bit i've had it i've never had a problem with it.
LENS'S ; I have three lens and only one is a canon lens, lens are universal which makes it alot easier and cheaper to be able to find and afford lens's.
BATTERY ; i only have one battery for my canon EOS 450D, i only need to charge it about once a month which is again fantastic. it takes the specific canon battery but they again are available from any good retailer.
As I have said before this camera is fantastic, the only downside I had was the software that came with it, I have an Apple Mac laptop and i had no end of trouble trying to find software that would take the photos off the camera (via the USB lead) I used 'Aperture' for a while until I got fed up of having to wait for it to load only to strip the photos of my camera, in the end I got a card reader, but the software I got with it just seemed to crash my Apple Mac.
Summary: Wonderful Camera, Rubbish software!
