Hi all I'm back and needing your advice already!

Was wondering if anyone could recommend a good camera?

I'm not a complete amature with photography and would like a step up from the £100 - £200 cameras. Journlaist cameras? Have been recommended the Canon Rebel XSI ?

Really enjoy taking photos.

Thank you!

Whats a journalist camera? Never heard of that before.

The camera you mentioned previously, I just looked up and it looks nice. However on a review it was stated as having a poor build quality (make of that what you will)
A friend of mine uses the Nikon D90 which produces some impressive images.
The Lumix G1 advertised on TV looks good too (I think forum member Bel Bel has that)

i DO HOWEVER ONLY JUST GOT IT AND HAVEN'T REALLY HAD A PROPER CHANCE TO USE IT - sorry on caps :oops:
If you want a really simple to use camera then I can tell you my sony cybersot was excellent but it isn't a professionals camera by any means.
All my pictures on the forum to date have come from my cybershot

Hey guys!

Thanks for your replies! Think I may go into some camera shops at the weekend, see what I can find!

I've got a Sony Cyber shot at the moment, fairly good!

I'm probably too late in replying to this but a while ago I was interested in getting a professional DSLR camera and posted a question asking for advice (on a art/photography site) and I was also recommended the Canon Rebel series quite a few times, and judging from their images it looks like really good camera.When I was comparing prices i found the main shops like The London Camera Exchange to be most expensive, but not bad going if you do it online through Quidco if you want some cashback (one site had over £100 cashback, nice!)

Just shows that shopping around can really pay off.
Did you get that camera, Ithfifi?

I did not in the end, so I can't give any feedback on it (not so helpful D:) just because I decided that knowing me, I probably wouldn't use it enough to justify £400 or however much it would have came to. So I went on a massive art splurge instead and kitted myself out with a watercolour collection! :oops:

Agreed ^-^ They will probably get much more love and attention then the camera would have!
