I’m now the proud owner of a Canon EOS 450D (or EOS Digital Rebel XSi). Like last time, it’s my Dad’s old camera – he’s upgraded to an EOS 600D and so he’s passed his 450D to me. In turn, my old EOS 300D will be going to Christine who presently has a small Nikon point-and-shoot camera.
So far the main benefits have been higher resolution images – 11 megapixels, rather than 8 – more intuitive use of advanced features like adjusting the focal length (since it actually makes decent use of the LCD screen), larger LCD screen, lighter weight and use of the more ubiquitous SD cards rather than the big old CompactFlash cards.
I’ve taken a few photos with it but with it being winter and therefore generally rubbish weather they’re not the greatest pictures. I’ll link some tomorrow though.
