I have been checking out some Canon SLR camera mainly the 5d mark II but cant go anywhere near that price of £1,500 + i have about £500 and have been looking at the Canon Eos series and the model i think called Canon Eos Kiss (12 MP) ive seen it under £500 pounds and looks a real good camera is there better ones in the Canon range like 40D or others etc...
thanks

If you are just starting out a 400 or 450d would be perfect.
I use a 350d and sometimes get some good shots out of it.

Onestop seem expensive ive found the 5D MARK II for 1,500 that site has it at 1,999.

Ive checked that other site you mentioned thanks alot but doesnt have the eos kiss :( but im wondering if anyone has the Canon Eos 450D camera and is it any good??

Well i want the best camera i can get for the money so dont want one by restricting myself, so what one would you says better the canon 400 or 450d and whats the kiss version ??????

The Kiss version sounds like a Japanese import (its called the Rebel in the USA). Personally, I'd stick to the UK versions but thats just me. Generally, Canon have the following naming conventions XXXX (eg 1000d) are entry level; XXX are beginner (400d; 450d etc.), XX are semi pro/good amateur (40d/50d) and X are pro level cameras. with prices to match.

It depends on your experience/what you want to shoot etc really and only you can answer that but bear in mind you'll need to buy lenses also for most purposes. In your price range, you can easily get the 450d (12MP, IS 18-55 lens, live view if thats your thang), with some spare cash for another lens, memory cards, bag etc.
Or you could get a bargain on an older 400d (there are still a few new ones about, but alot more second user). If you wanted to trade up, the 40d body only is certainly in this price range, but you'll need a lens obviously. Or you could buy a 2nd hand one. The 50d is newer, so is likely to be more expensive.

The best bet, as always, is to get yourself into a shop which has the whole range and have a play. You'll know which camera suits you best (mix of features, size, price etc.) and then go away and find the best deal. [url]www.camerapricebuster.co.uk[/url] is good for price comparisons.

Aye onestop prices vary, got a lens for a good price on it last year, but haven't had a good look on it recently.

If you are going to the caribbean anytime soon there is a shop over there that sells canon stuff at great prices, got a 580exII up in St Maarten in the Caribbean for 150 quid.

Just in case your still looking ive got this for sale here http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/316684/canon-eod-400d-and-gear?

If you spend all your money on the camera body you will regret it because you will have none left to buy good lenses with. Get the 450D its an excellent camera. If you buy it with the kit lens you will be good to go. At some point you will out grow the kit lens, or maybe want a macro or a telephoto lens to complement it. Getting better glass is more important than getting a better body, the lens makes the picture, working with good glass is great. Use fredmiranda.com to review lenses so that you dont buy rubbish ones.

Also worth noting that the 450D is physically smaller than the more expensive canons so its more portable.

And if you want to get the most from the camera read Understanding Exposure by Bryan Peterson, its a very good text.
