I am now the happy owner of a Canon 450D DSLR.
The Nikon Coolpix 995 I have had for ages is a neat little camera; the twisty frame has let me take some weird photos over time. But in the last year or so, its been getting a bit funny on the autofocus, and the battery has not been lasting very long.
So I took some present money and some ruddbucks.. well, all the ruddbucks, and went bought a new one. I had been eyeing off the 40D, but in the end, it was a bit too much. So I got the 450 and a couple of lenses and a polarising filter.
So far, so good - some adjustment to the new menus and the extra options, but I'm gradually seeing what it can and can't do. I don't think I'll throw the nikon away, because its still good for things like parties, and its a bit lighter than the whole DSLR kit too, but I now have a pretty new camera for doing the deliberate photo shoot thing.Playing about with it on Sunday...
