    wow there are some really great photos in here well done

    can I ask one of the experts what would be a really good camera to take to disney?

    I'd like something that is not too big but will give really great photos without me learning too much. I think that means we need an SLR and a local shop has let me play with a few different ones but I couldnt really notice any difference

    any recommendations?

    Im by no means an expert, but the sensor in an slr will instantly get you better quality shots, but the real benefit of an slr is when you play around with it and its settings

    hi tom, quite a few ppl on here have the canon eos 400D awesome camera easy to use on full auto setup takes great shots i took mine, wasnt at all a hinderance being a biggish camera rather than a point and shoot, had it round my neck and was ok with a bag of lenses..took aroound 2000 photos in all, will be sdoing a few more photo trippies later today :D

    if your looking for one, what sort of budget do you have in mind? then maybe we can help you :)

    Yep that`s correct Mike.
    I bought my Nikon D70 a few years ago now...it was the same model that the WDW /DCL photographers were using at the time...and I`m chuffed with it.
    OK since then Nikon have brought out newer models but that doesn`t mean that mine is suddenly no good so I`ll hang on to it for a while yet.

    Thats why I want a Nikon Terry.... I think it will last a very long time, even if newer fancier cameras come out...


    Toņo doesnt own a rebel Mick, he did however sent me the review for one... but I think Im still liking the Nikon better!
