    Default Help! Camera Advice!

    I would like to get a camera that is easy to use and takes great quality photos. I would like a super quick shutter speed as the camera will mainly be used to take photos of busy children. (My dd, children I work with etc) I have no idea about cameras and really need to be pointed in the right direction.

    Any canon ixus. Was just commenting this morning that I need to upgrade mine is about 5 years old now and still going strong. Takes such a nice photo even now and is very easy to use and solid (it's been bashed around a bit over the years).

    Hey Zee.

    DP and I recently bought a canon 600D with dual lenses. We took it on holiday to Japan and DP read the manual and took loads of photos and everyone we show says they look better than professional. The camera is super easy to operate, is a decent price and is excellent for every day use!

    Good luck finding a camera!

    I've got the canon eos M now which is a more compact dslr, great photos and has video recording. I did have the 450d, ixus and a video recorder, which meant it was a lot to travel with, to use at the right time. The M does it all and is a more compact package.

    I just don't want to walk in and get sucked into buying something that isn't simple to use and too expensive.

    Can anyone recommend one of the new compact system cameras? The new digital cameras with changeable lenses but without the SLR part of it. ( so they're smaller). Sorry to gate crash OP. I have a Canon IXUS and it take great photos. Mines a ixus 220 I think...

    Is this a compact system camera? ( no SLR part to it). Our local good guys had it for half price but reviews were not that great. It said bad auto focus and slow...do you like it?

    I've got a canon g12 which is a compact but I'm pretty sure the lenses can be changed. Great quality photos, excellent macro and range of ISO (film sensitivity for low light situations). The body is much more rugged than previous models too.

    got it online for a couple of hundred cheaper than the best store price. PM me if you want more info
