Got me camera.
Got my camera from Ebay the other day. £280 for a used Canon 450D with a couple of lenses, couple of remote controls, spare battery and charger and some other stuff that is a mystery to me, well the bag that it all fits in ani't but some of the other stuff is. The camera's like new and works just fine.
I got beating on the bidding three times, so in the end I sat there watching the countdown clock and entered a bid with five or so seconds to go. That got the old heart racing but I won and am well happy with what I got.Cool So I should be snap happy this weekend.

RE: Got me camera.
One is a Canon EF 50mm and the other one, which is slightly longer, is a Canon EFS 18-50MM with image stabilizer. I'm not really sure if there's any difference between the two apart from the fact that one's got the stabilizer and the other hasn't. I'll have a good play around with it this weekend so that I can get used to all the different settings, got a lot to learn I reckon.

RE: Got me camera.
The 50mm lens sounds like the one you describe. It's got "EF 50mm 1:1.8 II" written around the front casing. There's no zoom on it but I'm sure I'll learn what it's for as I play around with the camera, I went out today to take some pics but it is a warm sunny day and there's a lot going on in the town and down the seafront so too many people around for any decent scenery shots.

I'm sure I'll buy a bigger zoom lens sooner rather than later and I'll keep an eye out for the ones you mention. Cheers.

Thanks for that, it's a real good tip. It's the unusual that really catches the eye, it just takes someone to notice it. Cool
