    Sounds like a lot of hot (stale) air to me.
    The climate control in your car is broken so you can't open your windows then?/img/wwwthreads/smile.gif

    I remember on the day that was the new W registrations were out (1st August 1980) and I was driving up the road and there was a brand new W reg Fiat Uno at the side of the road with the bonnet up and a breakdown van beside it, haa haa.
    What car is it you have got then?

    Bet there was more room in the Uno than in the XJ6!

    Italien cars do rust bad.. My dad had a Lancia Delta HF Turbo... Leaving it Folkestone it went rust very quickly.. it ended up being scrapped! I think mine is the long wheelbase model... quite a lot of room... specially in the back!

    I started out with an EOS 1000 and got some stonking pics out of it. I got an EOS30 a while back and though I've got some nice images, all the ones hanging on my wall are from my EOS 1000. The reason? I bought a more expensive camera and forgot the basics. As other people have said, you need to learn the basic stuff and a 1000 is a good camera to learn on! Once your comfortable with that, then move on to a more expensive camera but remembering that it won't turn you into a better phtographer.

    The only other advice I can give (as I'm still learning) is to take lots of pictures as that is really the only way you learn. If you're anything like I was when I was 16 you probably don't have bundles of money, but taking pics and learning from your mistakes is the best way to progress (IMHO, of course).

    Good luck!

    For a fixed sum of money, it is better to buy the best lens you can afford with a basic body rather than have a mediocre lens with an all-singing, all-dancing body. The body, after all, is just a light-tight box to hold the film. It's the glass that forms the image.
