    Hi guys !.
    Ive been taking snaps for about 12 weeks now with my fuji sd1000 and i love every minute of it. I know its not the best camera in the world but now i think its time to upgrade to a better camera to further my ambition. Ive been intrested in the canon 500d & 550d, So am just wondering what you guys think or is there any other camera that i should be thinking of getting

    Please any feedback would be much appreciated !

    Thanks

    If you can afford the difference, the 550D. The difference in features is worth the price difference in my opinion.

    Agreed. They are both great cameras, but given the choice I would take the 550d any day of the week.

    do you need all of the features on the 500d / 550d
    such as the video recording?. if not there might be some similar choices that could save you a few buks that you could then spend on lens's or flashes and what not.


    but between the 2 i'd say the 550d if you got the cash.
