Ozzy’s car?? This ‘tattooed’ car was parked next to me in a carpark and I just HAD to get some shots Grin

By the way, I need some help…

[big TUT to all who went, “Yeah, Andrew, tell us something we don’t know.”]

…one of my best friends wants to get her husband an SLR for Christmas. It will be his first SLR. They’ve got a compact now and they want to get better pics of their young ‘uns.

Does anyone have any suggestions for an entry-level SLR? Something affordable but with good image quality?

Ta, all Smile

Good to see these paintjobs are still around. All the rage in the 60s and 70s.

TBH Andrew, any of the entry level Canons or Nikons are brilliant, but I'd go for a Canon, say the 600D. All the necessary bells and whistles, full manual and full Auto, but I think Canon have the better range of lenses and third party lenses. No doubt others will have another opinion especially as we now have the micro 4/3/CSC jobbies, but I don't know anything about them.

Gareth, that is so generous of you and I would love to have one to try BUT there is nooo way I'm gonna video my reaction...lol. Besides, in terms of trying it straight, I'd cautiously cut off the tip and try that raw...no more than that Smile I'll PM you my address anyway Smile

Good grief, it wouldn't be a good idea to commit a traffic offence in this, would it? As for the SLR - Canon every time, the 600D looks excellent and the EF-S lenses are superb..

Thanks so much, Chris. I was thinking of Canon or Nikon. I'll mention the 600D to Karen.

Can't see any car thief being able to say "So sorry, thought it was mine"! Certainly stands out and has been good craftsmanship. 4 colourful and well captured images, though personally I think my favourite part of the whole is the un-enhanced hatchback area!

If I saw that approaching in my rear-view mirror it would freak me out!

Marque loyalty is prevalent in the enthusiast camera world, Andrew, so I am bound to recommend Nikon. My family has been using them since 1960 . . . .

Interesting set Andrew.

Entry level DSLR's from all manufacturers are very good these days. Canon, Nikon, Pentax etc. Ultimately it's what feels comfortable in your hands is what really matters. I would suggest that your friend nips down to a camera shop and has a play with what's in the price range.
What may feel comfortable to some people may not to others and if you buy a camera that doesn't feel right for you then using it becomes a chore. (from experience a long time ago!)

regards

Ken

some car ...
and as Bill says you become loyal to your own brand ..
I love my Nikon to death
and my partner is similar with his cannon
But I must admit it took 3 tries with a suitable lens .... you get what you pay for
I have learnt the hard way

I use the Canon 60D and had a 400D before, both of which have been excellent. I have no complaints about either camera or the lenses I have.

Now that is different!!!!! Definitely would scare me off from tailgating.
As to the camera...I have had both a Canon and Nikon, but I have gone back to the Pentax. Not only are they affordable, but the Pentax lens fit all models. The image stabilization is in the camera, not the lens. They come in a wide price range, but the lower end models are fine...that's what I'm currently using. Best of all, they use just regular AA batteries, so you don't have to have a special charger and battery which can add up the $$$$$. Mine is very easy on batteries. They are a very underrated camera, I think, but the people who use them are avid fans.

Excellent paint job on this car. well spotted.

I have a Nikon but think that portrait pictures are better on the cannon. Just my opinion. Saying that when taking pics of my family I put the Nikon onto the sport setting and click away and have have had some really good colour balanced images that way, but always think that my friends Cannon creates better images than mine. But don't we always think that other peoples images are better than ours. Smile Good luck with the research. I would google it and see what they say. Smile

I fine set of images of this pimped up motor, I've never seen a tattooed car before. Another vote of the Canon Eos 600D, it takes pictures of high quality and the 18-55mm kit lens you get with it is fairly decent for portraits and lansdscapes
