Thanks Sundance they're not just a gimmick then.
That camera is well within my budget, I'll try and have a play with a few.

I'm now looking at the g3, the Nikon 1 s1 and the canon eos m.

Its a first decent camera for me so any advice on what to look for is gratefully received


Edit: doesn't seem to be many dedicated lenses available for the canon, the Panasonic is looking like the kiddie with the best options so far

Hi Duggs
I use a CSC a panasonic Lumix G3 with some fast primes mostly.

Panasonic and Olympus launched a system called micro four thirds. which describes the size of the mount. They are mirrorless , unlike a DSLR so can be made smaller. more importantly so can the lenses. There is a vast array of lenses now available from both companies . and as they share the same mount they are interchangeable.

Might be worth considering.

What do you guys think of compact system cameras?
I'm looking to replace my Nikon bridge camera for something faster and more compact.

I'm looking at entry level Canon and Nikon models
All advice appreciated

Canon 650d, nightime self portraits using the LCD , live view.
Go into live view mode, press menu then press AF then select AF Quick.
This will stop the camera struggling in auto focus in low light, by way of a pre flash.

Does the lens hunt in night time conditions or does it find a focus ok. Bloody good picture that.

I don't sorry, only this with the nifty fifty,

These lenses have a very wide appeture, ie opening allowing a lot of light to enter through to the sensor, at a lower f stop no, ie 1.8 wide open. But I can't say I have taken any nightime self takes with this lens, normally for me around 17-20mm small swims.

Please feel free

Be fine, if you already have a kit lense may be worth setting to 50mm and try some test pics.

I had this lense with the 650d, and for fishing self takes, if you have the space it really is a steal,
F,1.8- 2.2 Blurry background shots F,3-5 pretty sharp

Hi guys I am after some camera lens advice. I am looking to purchase a canon 50mm 1.8. The camera I am using is 650d. I know it won't be true 50mm as it's a crop body sensor it will be 80mm. Any one used this or give me advice on what lens is best. Thanks in advance.

I went for the eye fi mobi card, just so that I can look at pics from the slr on my phone or, pad when at home, or whilst on the bank etc, and be able to put the camera away out of harms reach. And perhaps send a pic or two of my most recent captures.
Photos transfer seamlessly, but although classed as a 10 sd card it is slow, and defiantly will affect burst mode.
Another negative is that it doesn't support my canon,s video format of pal or nrtl.
So I won't be getting shot of my ipad card reader just yet.

@ Jon I normally just select medium,
