I bought this for my boyfriend as he is a keen photographer. I didn't want to spend too much as this is something he only does in his spare time. I was originally looking at a Sony, but was told that the Canon is a lot more adaptable in terms of additional lenses than the Sony. I settled for the EOS 450D as it was small enough that it could be carried around without too much worry about the weight, but also because it takes some fantastic photos.
I bought it as part of a bundle package which was excellent value for money - I also got cashback on the purchase which was an added bonus. It works seamlessly with other makes of lense - and the quality has proved to be no different from the additional Canon lense that came as part of the deal.
It has proved to be really easy to use, with clear instructions that are very user friendly.
This camera has been on holidays, cycling, fishing, walking and used around the house. It is fanstatic quality, it works every time and the picture's are excellent. I think it is one of the best toys I have ever bought - and I think it works well for someone with very limited photographic potential (me) and someone with more skill (boyfriend).
An absolute all round winner - particularly for the money. I cannot recommend enough.
Improve the quality of your macro photos with this bellow for traditional and digital ... more
(single-lens reflex) Canon devices. The accordion-type macro bellows, which attach between the lens and the camera, allow a reduction of the distance between the lens and the photographed object, improving the quality of macro photography. Ideal for use with a tripod, in order to ensure the stability of the camera and smooth adjustments to the distance from the subject. Using the bellows allows you to approach up to one centimetre away from the photographed subject. After the macro extension ring, this accessory represents a new step in macro photography. This is a priceless accessory for anyone taking close-up photos, especially of flowers or insects. To use the macro bellows, the camera must be in mode M. with autofocus deactivated.
