I ended up going with the basic entry level Canon 1000D (or rebel XS in the states). Ian and I have mostly been shooting on auto, but are trying to play with the manual settings too. I think I may do a short course somewhere, does anyone have any recommendations? I feel as though I should have some basic understanding of my camera first.
These aren't really the greatest photos to show off my new camera. The sun was about to set, but gave a good blast of harsh light to end the day. It is pretty tough in winter to find time on weekdays for photos while the sun is still up!
