Canon EOS 450D

Canon 450D (or EOS Rebel XSi in the States, EOS Kiss X2 in Japan) is my new camera. So far I’ve been using a simple point’n'shoot camera (a Nikon Coolpix 550c) or the camera from my Nokia N85. But the truth is I wanted to get a DSLR since a while now and since I found a good deal at the T-online shop (including 0% financing) I decided to finally get it.

The EOS 450D is considered mid-range, so it’s not exactly entry level, but I think it’s a good camera to start in the world of digital photography. Some features:

  • 12 Megapixels
  • it came with 18-55mm EF-S lenses, with IS (Image Stabilization)
  • nice and big 3 Inch LCD monitor
  • 1050 mAh battery
  • SD Card slot (as opposed to the CompactFlash used in the previous models of the EOS series)

Of course, it has many more features, too many to list here. It will take me a while until I get comfortable with everything, it’s quite a big change from the normal compact cameras.

I’ve been reading a lot on the subject and now I am no longer clueless about things like ISO speed, aperture, exposure, shutter speed and so on. I am also interested in HDR photography  and I am anxious to give it a go, whenever the weather will get better.

    Pentru macro iti trebuie obiectiv separat sau merge si cu asta?

    Merge si cu asta insa obiectivul cu care vine camera este mai mult pentru uz general.

    Daca vrei sa faci fotografie macro de calitate atunci iti trebuie un obiect dedicat pentru macro, cu magnificare (1:1 ideal).
