I have been looking for the best price for this camera for a few days now and this is it.
You need to use the voucher code 6OFF to bring the price down from £519 to £487.86


The Canon EOS500D 15.1 megapixel Digital SLR comes with a powerful EF-S 18-55 IS Zoom Lens, ideal for those wanting to experiment with digital photography.

At the heart of this digital SLR is Canon's potent DIGIC 4 processor, which works alongside the CMOS sensor to deliver you incredibly crisp, clear and clean images, which hold true-to-life colour representation..

A bit racist....what are you on? Do you work for them or something? Have heard really bad reviews bad delivery and promises not kept!

I've been looking at the Panasonic gf1.

I am a complete n00b at photography but want to pick it up as a hobby and learn. Would this be a suitable camera or is it too advanced?

Thanks

Dave.
#12
If you can buy Body only - I would.

The Kit Lens is pretty crap and you will buy better within weeks - the kit lens will be left in your cupboard forever .... so, better to save some money and don't get it in the first place!

Canon make the best Cameras!

Before everyone says....i know i know this is a camera and if i want to do video i should buy a video camera but never the less...

Just a note on the HD video - at 1080 it is 20 fps which isn't good enough for motion so you will end up using 720 at 30fps.

Another question regarding the video, can you manually focus or is it auto only?
#15
Auto Focus .... but it is very slow and no good really.

Do NOT buy for the HD Video capability as it is awful ... the built in microphone is dire.
#16
quidco as well but not sure if you get it on collect at store.

I have purchased this camera about a week ago with the Curry's deal HERE.
I am really happy with the camera it's amazing. I tried the video option and it's great except for the focus which can be either manual or automatic. Manual might be preferable as on AUTO the lens stepper motor noise gets picked up in the recording. The kit lens is good enough for an amateur/beginner users of SLR. The camera is also light, really handy and easy on the shoulders. I have to say if I had the dosh I would gone for the 550D but for what it's worth this is a great buy.

I am very clear what the word means, however this is a thread for a camera and nothing else!

I bought this body a few months ago from Canon on eBay for only a little less money. Fantastic camera.

Chose Canon as I have some lenses from my old none digital camera which fit. However if you are planning on upgrading lenses and/or buying different ones bear in mind that Canon's IS system is in the lens not the camera which makes each lens a fair bit dearer than their competitors such as Nikon etc.

Thank you for your post here - I'm trying to decide between a 550D and a 500, and hearing someone who has recently bought a 500D say if they had the cash they'd have gone for the next up may just swing things for me.

For better video look up the 500D's replacement the 550D - Video at 1080p is 25fps and 50fps at 720p (so when played back at 25, you get slow mo) . These are great cameras for video and there are a lot of us using them professionally for video production. It's a little more expensive but not much.
#29
anyone know any good deals going on the 550D ???
