My new toy

Because of my recently growing interest towards photography, I have decided to upgrade from the point & shoot digital camera to a whole new level and buy my first digital single-lens reflex – DSLR – camera.

After much consideration, I decided for the Canon EOS 450D, the newest entry in the hobby photographers line.

My first impression: I love it! I only used the automated settings until now but the image quality and the camera’s shooting speed is amazing.

It has lots and lots of goodies too, including:

  • 12,2 Megapixels CMOS-Sensor and DIGIC III Processor with 14 Bit color depth pro color channel
  • 3-inch LCD-Monitor
  • 9-point auto focus
  • EOS Integrated Cleaning System and Auto Lighting Optimizer
  • 3.5fps continuous shooting
  • A larger viewfinder
  • 14-bit A-D conversion and RAW files
  • Accurate Live View with the choice of two AF systems

Yes, I know… most of this sound more like Chinese also to me but I hope to discover all of these features and even more!


Now, all I need is the book called Canon EOS 450D for Dummies and I am good to go! Let’s play!
