    Looking at getting a new camera

    Im looking at getting a new camera and really like the look of the canon SLR. I know a few people on here use one so does anyone have any advice on which model is good and which one is simple to use for someone who has very little idea about the advanced settings but still wants top quality photos. Cheers
    It would definitely go better with an engine in it

    Canon 1000D ftw! Got mine with 18-55mm lense, 75-300mm lense, case and card for £560.

    Good camera, settings are easy to adjust, good camera, can get some good photos from it.

    Well worth the money I spent IMO

    If I do get one it will be with that lense. Does anyone have any decent photos taken with one so I can see what the quality is like? Ive done a google search but it only comes up with loads of pictures of them and some random perverts standing on hills. Id prefer some shots of cars/pretty mountins and stuff as thats what I will be using it for

    As above go to a camera shop and see what feels best, then IMO buy 2nd hand and get a better model for your cash.
