Hey guys!
It's my B-day in 3 days...
I'm thinking of asking my parents for a new camera, maybe a reflex.
Is there anybody knowing something of photography? I was interested in a Canon EOS 1000D, but -- being this not my cup of tea* -- I'd like to hear somebody's advice


~~~
* Does this mean, as I think, that I'm not experienced in... Is it a British-only thing?

Cheers,
Sim

Hi Simosito!

I found this in Dictionary.com, I hope it will help.

one's cup of tea, something suitable, appropriate, or attractive to one: Horror movies and westerns are just not my cup of tea.

I'm going to work now. Good day to all! :-D

Using the technology first brought to me by Hei, I'm gonna wrap it up for you two fella in one single message!;-)
I am off to Tenerife today;)

Let's see if I can get a photo or two, I finally decided to do my "advanced divers" thingy...jeje, and now I am ever sooooo good :lol:

WEll, at least the weather is going to be fine, we got like 22 degrees in Tenerife. Great!

Awesome for you, but not that much of a super-duper temperature for our Yank because he must be way into having a chilly feeling in the indoor and outdoor spaces.

To Amigo: Wake up boy, that is the beginning of Dec. What are you up to as we are approaching Christmas!!!??

To you: I just saw the drawing of lots for the 2010 FIFA World Cup and good to your country, that is a hell of a group Spain is in. The US could also be as happy as you because they got to just roll over England and if not no need to worry as the remainder does not cost a penny to be worried about.

Go to this page. It will serve you with what you haven't learnt about Canon Camera of model you named.

Features at a glance:
  • 10.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor
  • EOS Integrated Cleaning System
  • 7-point wide-area AF system with f/5.6 cross-type centre point
  • Up to 3 frames per second
  • 2.5” LCD with Live View shooting
  • DIGIC III image processor
  • Compatible with SD and SDHC memory cards
  • Compact and lightweight body
  • Digital Photo Professional RAW processing software
  • Fully compatible with all Canon EF and EF-S lenses and EX-series Speedlites
Sounds tasty but a little bit low in its features as you may have picked up one that is capable of video recording. Remember that this thing also DOES NOT have spot light metering which makes it difficult to take pictures in which you strongly consider the distances of high accuracy (if you are gonna be a civil engineer, this won't work for you!).

P.s. Happy Birthday, my boy! Wish you great days! ;-)

Thank you P!
I've googl'd a little more, and I might have found a good camera indeed (it scores 88% whilst the Canon EOS D1000 gets an 85%): the Olympus E-420 (Review).

You are welcome, brother! I am not there to get you something, but I can help you find a Goot camera for your BD! :)

If money is not that important and you can afford a 500$ camera, then I recommend you to go for Canon's PowerShot G-series. In that series, the highly top-notch camera is G11 that was released about 3 months ago.

See its specifications\features here. I'd be happy to hear your opinion on it!

A little bit too professional. It's my first reflex, and I think a 400€ one (like the olympus) is good enough,,.

You're so right!

I suppose we shan't be able to talk with you for a while, p, for I read they've cut off internet connection in Iran...
If so, we'll miss ya.

Cheerio,

They have cut off internet in Tehran, but in Tabriz the internet can only be reached at a low speed as of yesterday. We got a big day tomorrow! I'm gonna wear my green clothes, join my friends in the marches, cry the anti-dictatorship chants and fan out over city to condemn the policies of the Islamic Regime.

Hope for a free Iran.

Sort of bad! It smells like they are not going to issue my visa so I'm very disappointed... but we all are alive by having hopes and dreams that are to come true someday far or near today! :-|

The future of Iran (an the world!) cannot be more disappointing than the present.

Take care!

Try not to get hurt in the next few days, and let us know how how the protest went, once you're done.
I suggest you download a proxy software (like Thor), it should help to bypass connection blocks.

You've already received the pink elephant you've asked for,
