I bought one of these camera's as part of a package from dixons early last year. I choose this camera because it had many unbeatably features that could not be ignored. This camera is one of the best that a beginner or advanced photographer can buy. The camera itself has two deistint modes (for beginners/advanced) which inturn have many sub-modes to choose from. As the camera is a full SLR it automatically chooses the best apperture, light, zoom, focus and other advanced features which help to develop the best pictures. It is relatively light in weight which allows ease of carrying with other equipement and accessorys. Its overall design is also much pleasing to the eye and has many convinent finger grips. The placement of the buttons and modes is also easyily accessible for the user, both in and out of use.
The camera itself is also a very good starter for the more experienced photographer because it has a universial adapter that allows many ranges of lenses and filters to be fitted which can result i spectacular photo's. the camera takes universal 35mm film which can be bought in a variety of types i.e. balck and white or colour.
I own two lenses, along with countless numbers of filters and polorizers which allow great opportunties for shots, they are easily removed and can be fitted quickly and simply. The whole camera does not need much expertise to work, it is simple enough to be understood by the pictures next to each mode. Howevever if you do get stuck, then you can refer to the extensive user manual which explains where you are going wrong and what to do about it.
The after sale service for canon's camera's is out of this world. It is brilliant, they are all very helpful and polite. So dont be afraid to ask one of their very experienced staff who can help in no time.
