YaY!

A friend of my uncles was in getting his computer fixed yesterday, and I was talking to him about cameras and the such like. He said he would bring down his camera with lenses and bag and I could have a shot of it for a week or two, and low and behold, I came into the shop after school and it was there!!!

Took it home and spent like an hour figuring out which setting I had messed up, then changed something else, then decided it would be a good idea to maybe read the manual; but that didn't happen, so I went onto my roof and tried to snap a few photos. Not very good light and I missed the sunset (stupid hill) but I have two weeks anyway.

Hopefully i'll get up really early tomorrow morning before school and jump on the roof again and get the sunrise, hopefully the houses stay out mah way!

He has the 18-55mm kit lens, and a 80-210mm Kodak Lens (meh) seems pretty good so far, but I still need to figure out how to work it, so my bedtime reading tonight is the camera manual!

He said he will sell for about £400, including 2Gb CF, 350D Body, 18-55mm EF-S Kit lens, 80-210mm Kodak (something) lens, 2 Camera Bags, 2 Canon Batteries, Battery Charger, cables and finally, lens cleaning fluid.

Is it worth £400, if not then I'd be more than willing to save for the 400D, but I'm not sure exactly what it has over the 350D, aside maybe continous shooting and obviously 10Mp, oh I dunno I'm just happy I have my first DLSR camera to use :D

Anyone know what time sunrise is in Fife? lol! (I'm never up that early most of the time!)

The 350D has a second LCD display for little info, and 1.8 inch screen
The 400D is 10MP, 2.5 LCD, sensor cleaning, and is cheaper and little lighter.

You'd have to value the second lens, but brand new 350D / XTs with the 18-55mm can be bought for less than £400 - see here

And brand new EOS 400D / XTi kits with the 18-55mm start at about £450-£500 - see here

Yeah, I wasn't to fussed about the little screen anyway. The only thing that interested me was that the IS0 800 and 1600 give less noise on the 400D, but is it an amount that would warrent the money?

Oh and I missed sunrise, my mum put my alarm off before i got up, then woke me up at 7:15 and goes "why on earth would you set your alarm for 6am? Playing computer games again?" - lol

Yeah I'm also gonna have a good look through the internets for some prices, and even ebay if there is any reputable sellers. Well school in a few minutes (well it starts at 9, but the bloody bus takes sooo long, only 7 miles distance) so better make sure i got my books :)

(p.s. would have taken the camera, but my mum has put a stop to that, since its not mine yet >_<)
