I finally unpacked a new camera, and have been having a great time. ;) My patch of Lupins and Watsonia looking gorgeous in the sun.

Sorry to butt in.. Mic..I bought Canon EOS350D in May this year. It is a fantastic camera and easy to use. Or you can get newer version Canon EOS 400D. But is more than 8 megapixels. If you have more questions, please feel free to ask.

I bought the canon EOS 400D - my first SLR and I'm loving it. The clarity of the pictures is stunning. The 400D is just a tad over 10 megapixels. There is none of the distortion or purple fringing I got with my previous digital, which wasn't an SLR.

the camera body is mid-range expensive, but the lenses can be VERY expensive. Canon have a deal running right now on lenses where you can get hundreds of $ back which is what I did.

I have a Canon powershot Pro1 to sell! ;)
