Cheers nick, thanks for the advice, i have found some cracking prices from a website called slr hut, they are selling the 550d for 480 with the 18-55mm lens, i have never heard of them before?? So i am a bit skeptical of buying from them

Andy, i'd think you could pick up a 550D for that money. There's a little more resolution and it has full HD unlike the 500.
I would suggest if you're going to photograph sport that you spend the extra and make the 75-300 lens an IS model. The image stability really helps with moving targets, I use mine for the boys rugby and the IS really helps. My stepdad has a normal lens and the difference is quite marked.

I'd avoid Jessops mate, they are the most expensive place you can get cameras and equipment from!

Take a look at

Warehouse Express

And if you don't mind your stuff coming from Hong Kong (which, to be honest, it all does in the first place anyway) then take a look at Panamoz. I've bought my camera and a lens from this company and had no problems with them, and you won't find a better price than theirs.

75-300mm would be great for the racing, and should get you in pretty close. The 18-55 is a really good lens considering it comes free with the camera, it has Image Stabilisation and USM (ultra sonic motor) for fast focusing.

You're not being a pain mate, wouldn't be answering if I didn't mind!

I was just looking at jessops and they are selling the canon eos 500d with the 18-55mm plus 75-300mm for 580, does this seem a reasonable price?

I suppose the 75-300mm would cover the motor racing? And the 18-55mm is a good alrounder?

Sorry if i am being a pain

Hello mate,

In terms of the camera you would like, it depends what you want from it really and what you want to do with your photos.

For lenses, if you get a camera with a kit lens, such as the Canon EOS 500d that I have, then that will cover scenic shots and trophy shots.

You may then want to get yourself a zoom lens for motor racing, plenty available but i'd try and get one with some kind of optical stabilisation to compensate for shaking as you will probably be holding the camera in your hands rather than on a tripod.

Wildlife, bugs and flowers can be photographed with the kit lens, but for closer shots you'll want a macro lens if you want any detail in the finer shots.

So basically the camera with a kit lens, and one or two extra lenses, which you could easily get for under 800 I reckon, just depends what ones you choose!

Not DSLR but .........

If only we could see in the right light the sky at night would be a wondrous sight. Trouble is after a few days it would be commonplace so nobody would look any more would they?

This is IC1795, part of the Heart nebula. It is an emission line image (that is the light captured is that emitted by certain gases namely hydrogen, oxygen and sulphur). There is a total of 11 hours exposure here and it is colour mapped to the Hubble palette.

Taken using a 190mm Maksutov Newtonian scope and a cooled (to ~-35c) mono CCD camera through Ha, OIII and SII filters.

(Those of a certain age might see the Aquaphibians submarine from Stingray)

For those people who are interested in `Adobe Photoshop`, the October edition of Digital SLR photography is featuring how to use the `Liquify` filter. As well as other gems the section on creating mirror images and reflections could be useful in giving those lake views and I guess trophy shots an extra dimension.

For those people thinking about branching out into close up photography there is a great section on all the options available.

Very Nice shots dave!!

Did anyone get a shot of the moon last night around 9.30pm? I was walking home from my girlfriends and could see it just above the horizon, looking huge and VERY red! By the time I got home it was up in the sky and normal colour :(
