    450 or 1000D

    hey
    I am looking into buying a DSLR
    being a teenager i have a rather tight budget so i want a low cost camera but i still want to get a good camera.
    After reading some reviews and articles i have chosen on the Canon 1000D or 450D but i still need some help deciding.
    I would like to shoot macro, landscapes and sport.
    any recommendations would be great. tips. any help would be good.
    i would like to not spend more then $1200 including bag, tripod ect.

    Cheers, Ben

    Ben....

    My bro has a 450D.....i'd go with that. I have a 500D, DIGIC 4 processor verses the 1000D DIGIC 3.

    Sorry Ben...

    If you're going to shoot sports, the 450D will be of better service.

    I had a 1000D until recently ( upgraded to a 50D) and it served my purpose well! I shot motor sports with it, sports carnivals at the school .. I can't fault it as a beginner camera.
    Happy to take all constructive Critique, please don't rework or edit my photos. Thanks!

    they're both good entry points. In reality, the 1000D could be thought of a newer version of the 450D, just with similar features and at the time (i think?) a lower price point. I'd go with whatever is cheaper, and spend the saved cash on a better lens And when you save up and get a macro lens you'll have an absolute ball, it's great fun.

    I've had a 450 for 2 years now and find that for a few extra dollars over the 1000 it is a far better camera. My advise is buy a camera body, and pick up a better lens, perhaps a 17=85. I am sure you will be a happy chappy.

    what gje38752 said,and,
    I own the 450 and mate has a 1000, depending how picky you are can spot diffs but I was happier with the 450,
    dont spose theres any chance you know anyone with either camera that you can go have a play with?

    One day I'll take some serious photos, just not today

    I reccon you should go for a second hand 40D or 50D. Both are more suited to sports, (faster auto focus and frames per second). For second hand you can get a 50D for Approx $800, with a standard lesn like a 18-55 IS thats another $100. Alot more camera than a 1000D imo

    If you're looking for a second hand body, 40D and 50D won't fail you. If you don't do video, get a 40D. It will do you good. With the shutter speed, you can good shots with sports.
