Iv'e been looking at a few Dlsr's but i found myself drawn to either teh Nikon D5000 & Canon 550D, also for just basic ease of use i looked into the canon powershot SX30, however i decided against due to not being able to move forward with it concerning lenses and fringing probs at wide angles. So for that price i might as well just get a Dlsr. Like the look of new canon 600d too..just waiting for review , doesn't mention about Mic input on it like the 550D..

There is one. Differing somewhat from the 550D, it's in a separate compartment to the HDMI and USB/AV out ports.

Hi everyone...thanks for your replies & iv'e seen some amazing works you have all done on your blogs & webs pages...this has certainly been an inspiration for me to get involved with photography...for the effects and clarity that can be created through a lens. Obviously i can say that i know nothing about Dlsr's ...so its gonna take me a while just to get around all the features. Keep up the great work guys...cheers.!!! 8)

Welcome to the forum, Rob. This is probably one of the friendliest forums out there, so don't be afraid to ask the dumb question - we've all done it and not been shot down in flames at Cameralabs!

Welcome to Cameralabs Rob! Enjoy! :)

Also, keep in mind that the new Nikon D5100 will be announced sometime soon, so don't go out buying a D5000 quite yet!
