Cheers buddy! The pictures would be a lot crisper if i had a decent camera, i'm currently using a point and press digital so the results are not brilliant, but not bad either. Looking at getting a digi SLR soon

That's beyond gibberish for me I'm sure it makes sense to many other people though.

Jesus, those are taken without a SLR?

What camera are you using?!

It's just a 3 year old Kodak V1003, 10 MP. Initially i thought the results were awesome, but a lot of new cameras have come out in last 3 years! What Digi SLR would you recommend for around 250?

EDIT: And here's a picture from today, it was a Fiat/Abarth/Alfa/Lancia meet! There were at least 50 cars there and we did the EVO triangle!

Re: Draigflag's ABARTH 500 (new thread!)

Ok guys & gals, here they are. Bit on the different side for me, some will like, other won't! Those lights just reminded me of an 80's club, (and the cover for the Ministry of Sound Electronic 80's CD set!) and the car was so shiny i just wanted to capture some of those colours on the curves of the car! Some of them remind me of those roadside diners you get in the states. Some of them are perhaps purposely over enhanced, but with vibrant colours i think they fit with the theme! Tell me what you think.

Having bought an DSLR earlier this year, a few points;

1. On that budget you're looking at second hand. AFAIK the cheapest DSLR kits are about 360

2. Don't think it'll automatically improve your shooting. On coming from a P+S the learning curve (for me) is massive. You'll spend a *lot* more time setting things and become much more critical about your photos. I've shot over 2500 photos since January and only now am I starting to get to grips with it all.

3. It'll become <strike>a bottomless money pit</strike> an involved hobby

4. Damnit, now I want to go and clay the 500 and take some proper shots of it.

Nah unfortunately not. I like the Canon EOS 500D but that's expensive, you could get a (can't remember the name) camera that you can't change the lenses on; they're not bad.

Re: Draigflag's ABARTH 500 (new thread!)

Cheers guys, i'm not looking to do this professionally, just as a hobby. I did photography in College so know a fair bit, and if i can produce pics like this with a cheapo camera, i should be able to get even better pics with a more expensive one!
