Now we're getting serious!!

That's it - I've done it! I've been thinking about a Digital SLR Camera for months, but not had the courage to take the plunge!

So finally, I went to Lincoln on Thursday and got myself the Canon EOS 400D - WOW - what a camera - WHY have I been waiting - it's great!

Although, I have to say it's times like this I really miss my Dad (who died 2 years ago), he was into photography in a big way - he would have loved playing with this!! So I am buying this in his memory and promise to teach Sam how to use it to!!

Hi Susan
Thanks for your comment, What a fantastic Xmas pressie!!
I've had a compact Canon IXUS for a while now and I love it - but I just wanted to take things that bit further with the SLR. I have had a play with the 'auto' settings and have been really pleased with the results. So I am now throwing myself in at the deep end and having a go myself - it will be trial and lots of errors I imagine!!
Cheers.

It's not the settings I'm worried about - it's the lens!!
