    ....by my nearest and dearest,viz:my elder son,Simon who has very recently embarked on a Masters course in media at Swansea University.
    Why so?well he`s bought himself a Canon7D to "assist"with his course work,and a 350D for my 9 year old grandson.

    On the upside all my Minolta and Sony lenses and flashes are not going to be borrowed.

    I must say the 350D was a bargain @ £30.It`s near mint and comes as a complete outfit including a Canon shoulder bag with a Sigma 16-55 and all accessories needed for learning this art of ours.

    Everyone sees the Canon light eventually.

    When the battery explodes and sets the local area on fire? :eek:


    Well, who can afford proper Canon batteries... ;)

    That is the trouble with the 7D... if you try one, you just have to have one.

    Really, the 7D was the worst Canon camera I bought. Probably didn’t suit my needs.

    That happened to me, but it was the 1Div I tried (and bought) the day I went to buy a 7D. Never pick up a 1 series!

    I guess it proves the "try before you buy" that we try to tell people looking for a new camera.

    The Canon EOS 1 series, like the Nikon single digit camera has maintained a common control layout for many years. It does mean that moving to the newer model is almost painless.

    I would rather have liked a 350D of my own when I was nine years old. I am assuming that digital needs came with it.
    I made do with sharing my dad's baby bessa. At least I learned how to develop a film and even better use an enlarger and see the magic of an image developing in a dish.
