    Im thinking of buying this camera 2nd hand cheap for about £70 until i can afford to buy a dSLR.

    Reckon this camera will keep a beginner who's still learning the basics for 5 months or so?

    Thanks
    Rogan

    You will get much more desireable results with a dslr. If i were you i would not spend the money on a cheaper camera right now, then have to spend even more money on a dslr. I think you should just keep saving until you have enough for a dslr. But its up to you.

    Its a very good camera, and you can set it to manual control. It also can shoot in RAW, also has a very decent zoom. I think it would be a great "get your feet wet camera". Like Jimmyo said its not a dslr. But its a good second if you only want to test the waters, so to speak. Then when your ready, sell it and move on up.

    Congrats! As a forum tradition you should post the very first picture you take :wink:

    Looking forward to seeing some of your shots.

    I havent tried posting to the gallery yet, but I do take part in the technical assignments and challenges often. I'll check out the gallery and see about getting some shot uploaded. ;)

    *EDIT*: Hmmm can't figure out how to start a user gallery. Any tricks to it that Im missing?
