    My new toy

    Mmm, what George said above :) You going to love that nifty fifty once you get into it. My biggest tip apart from manual mode of course is up your contrast, saturation and sharpness in the camera almost all way up for better pics straight out of the camera.

    canon 350d best lens ?

    +1 for 50mm f1.8 You wont regret it for sure although it will look a bit odd to someone new to photography :) +2 on reading about iso shatter speed and aperture :thumbup:

    Best camera under £150

    Yep, for that price your best bet probably would be 350d. And get a nifty fifty as they call it. 50mm f1.8 canon magic lens. Goes second hand for around 60£.

    What dslr ?

    If you do decide upgrading a body go for 550D or 7D at least. They both are the same picture quality wise but 7D having pro controls and magnesium weatherproof body, 100% viewfinder as opposed to 95% on entry levels which helps framing tanks better especially on videos. The reason i recommend...

    Editing videos from canon DSLR's on the cheap?

    Version 2011 mine says. Windows 7 Whereas edius 6 wouldn't open mov. I know Mark has edius 5 which does but 6 not :crazy: Try maybe updating movie maker? Just checked 2.6 must be quite old one.

    Editing videos from canon DSLR's on the cheap?

    Ultra-wide angle (UWA) and aquascaping

    Videos might be the future of contest judging but not yet. Who said yo cant use wide angle lens on your HD shooting DSLR though. And further more video editing could take things even farther from the aquascape than the photo. Unless as some people said strict rules have to be applied such as...

    Inspiring shots from Russia

    Macro Lenses

    Thanks guys. I am always showing my friends these fly shots of yours Mark to show what macro lens can do :oops: Have no particular purpose to use macro though. A bit of this and that maybe. Will start looking for a used one and see for what money they go compared to new ones. Is there any...

    Advice on buy a lense for a present....

    There were couple used ones from 160 to 190 buy it now on ebay last week. Sigmas i mean. The price should have gone down a bit due to an upgrade from sigma with OS which goes around 300 at the moment.
