canon eos 1000f
hi there i am new to this forum and to photography really,i have always enjoyed taking photographs but decided when i noticed how inexpensive second hand slr s were on ebay that i would buy one and take better pictures.I bought a canon eos 1000f autofocus slr and a canon 38-80 lens and have since bought a sigma 70-300 lens.I wish to take pictures of my family and surroundings to wall mount the better ones and was convinced 1 month ago that i needed a digital camera (for the preview of image) so in haste i bought a fuji s5600 5.1mp.
The digicam is ok but everytime i pick up my canon slr it feels much better,the viewfinder is so much better and the sound of the shutter action without lag is great ,also i have just come back from spain to find some of the shots i took with the digicam were out of focus(cant tell in the little viewfinder)and some had focus on other things other than my subject. so my question is do you recomend i go back to using the film camera ? and does anyone know how good this canon slr is as they make so many i cant figure out is it is bottom of the range(i expect it is )or if it was a top of the range.
Any help in any of my queries would be wonderful and i really value you opinions.
sorry it such along post but i thought i would try and give you as much info as poss !
looking forward to some great replys
Well, you will get the obvious answer here about using your film SLR over a digicam. SHOOT THE FILM. I don't know much about your slr but any slr will give you better quality images than a point and shoot digicam. Of course your mileage may vary with improving photo skills.
Any EOS body with a 4 digit model number is bottom of the range. Single digit numbers indicate top-end, double-digit numbers are semi-pro and 3 digit numbers are the low/mid range.
I'd shoot film if I were you. Even a low-end SLR will produce better results than most P&S digitals (Barring high-quality oddities like the Sony DSC-R1).
