i will wait for a new model as the liveview function on 450d is not the best yet.

The panasonic L10 is given really good reviews, compares well to the 450 and also has a high quality lens as standard, also a fair bit cheaper at only £299!!

Agreed, the Nikon Canon debate are purely down to preference. I prefer canon.


Nice shots, I am too heavy handed so the 75-300 wasn't built well enough for me, I went from the sublime to the ridiculous and got the 70-200L IS, but I do more Rally than track stuff when it comes to motor sport so mud stones and rain are always a worry lol, .

All bagged in a Lowepro - SlingShot 200 AW
http://i40.tinypic.com/smsjtv.jpg
My setup
350d with standard canon lens
nifty fifty
sigma tank
75-300 zoom
and a sweet deal I picked up in a shop in St Maarten on holiday a 580EXII for 150 quid. :)
Cheapest place for camera gear I have ever found, they also deliver btw.

Some great shots in there.

Noticed you have a 50mm MK2 I managed to get a MK1 with the metal fitment instead of the plastic one and the distance window. Is it me or is that a cracking lens for £50 thinks its one of my faves.

17-40L f4, 24-70L f2.8, 50mm 1.8 MK1 and 70-200L IS f2.8. 580EX.

Picked up a Manfrotto Tripod for nothing as someone was binning it for having a broken hinge, the hinge cost me £3.99.

All kept in flight case or Lowepro 75AW when I am out and about, The wife makes an excellent tripod carrier too :thumbsup:

Really Tempted with the New 5D MK2 eeeeek!

Flippin expensive hobby if you ask me! :-D

Need to start recouping some lens costs, have done a wedding or two and a few commercial jobs but nothing to cover any real costs lol..... still learning.

I am terrible for blaming tools for a bad job, so I have always bought the best I can afford and then all I can blame is ME!
#22
Haven't been out much this year tbh.
Need to get back into the pic taking, quite enjoyable.
I over analyse a lot of the pictures I take which really gets to me.
Need to take it easier with the eld pic taking.
