Photoshop for me, expensive but worth it if you are doing a lot of photo post production work. You could try GIMP which is free on the web and has a lot of Photoshop type applications. It is a pig to use as the help section is poor, not user friendly

Great choice mate, I have a 450d and well chuffed with it. A lens which has 2 numbers ie 18-55 is a wide angle 18 (gets more in the picture) wider angle. The 55 on a DSLR is seen as a telephoto lens, ie makes the picture bigger ( like looking through a telescope) The higher the number the more the lens magnifies the image. I have a 75-300 zoom lens which at the 300 setting is quite good. It also magnifies through the range so itís a 135, 200, 250, magnifying more as you go up the range. On the price front the 75-300 is around the £230 mark which is not a lot of dosh for a lens of this quality. On the other hand you can add a 2 in front of the above figure if you buy the top of the range model in the equivalent zoom range. Have a look on the Canon site as they feature a picture guide showing the various magnifications. One tip shop around and haggle, if you are in London, have a walk around Tottenham Court road dealers and you can save loads of money

Somebody may have answered this but it is difficult to say, you could be lucky. Remove batteries, carefully wipe away any obvious moisture and allow as much air to circulate as possible. A warm room is good. Do not apply any direct heat. From experience repairers will not touch anything that has been water damaged. The repair bill could be more than the cost of buying a new model

I'm pretty confident in my photographic knowledge. But having never owned a DSLR I don't really know about the lens business.

Been looking around on the net, and have found some good pictures for examples.

Now I just need to get the pennies together!

You might like to try Wikipedia or similar for photographic examples of different focal lengths. If you are considering spending that sort of money on a camera it is probably worth having a good look at some photographic websites to get a better clue about the subject in general. You'll never get the best out of it if you don't understand the basics.

Hey guys,

I'm quite interested in my photography and am looking to get my first Digital SLR.

Going on reviews and my budget, I think i'm gunna choose the Canon EOS 500D.

However, that chosen, I would also like to get a zoom lens for some wildlife shots etc, but can't understand all this EF 55-80mm blah de blah malarky.

So, can someone please explain a little, in simple terms, the differences in the zoom distances etc, so that I can choose one with a capable zoom on it?

Hope that's possible and that what i'm asking makes a little sense!

Cheers

Some excellent pics on here

I am new to photography and have just purchased a canon eos dslr, with a efs 18-55mm lens the query I have is that my dad has an old canon slr with quite a few exspensive lenses that he no longer uses so if I were to purchase an fd to ef mount for my camera( i know they are hard to come by but have found one!) is the picture quality noticably reduced by using fd lenses rather than ef ones, I am only looking to use the camera for capture shots and family hols etc although I would like to get more into the scenic shots etc. I would love to be able to justify buying a decent macro lens but im sure the wife would not be too impressed and dont want to rock the boat as Ive only just got the pass for a once a year trip to France ( happy days).

Thanks in advance for your knowledge

Wow! There's a few great shots here. I tried to quote my favorite but it did not work. Thanks for the shares.

Cheers.

I understand mate but im finding the shorter lens a bit limiting when he is further away and the larger lens to much when he is up close i guess im looking for a lens between the 2.

In short, no. I don't believe that with the best lenses money could buy if you aren't capable of taking a decent photo (I'm not saying you aren't, I hope you understand ) then I don't think any lens is going to make it look like you can take a photo...
