    Default Canon EOS 1000D Help.

    Hello All,

    I'm new to this wonderful forum and have a great interest in photography.
    Nevertheless, i am a newbie in DSLR and is considering to get a DSLR soon.

    I've got a few questions to ask about Canon EOS 1000D.
    The model which i've been reading about.

    With EOS 1000D, will i be able to shoot good pictures of:

    1) People / Group Pictures
    2) Nature / Landscape
    3) Fireworks / Night Landscapes
    4) Idols in Indoor Concerts

    May i also now the price of EOS 1000D in Singapore?

    Thanks in advance for your reply!

    Welcome to the forum!

    That's a very vague question you're asking.. The 1000D is definately very capable of delivering good pictures, of cos with a certain limitation when compared to the higher end models.. The camera body is just the tip of the iceberg, there are many other factors that affect the quality of a picture.. the lens you attach, your camera settings, compentacy of the photographer etc..

    Should be about slightly more than 1K I think.. other CS users prob can give you a more detailed answer about its price..

    May i ask, the 55- 250 is it a higher grade equipment?
    If we get it at 995$ is a a full set which includes the body and the lense thingy?

    Erm, suggest you do a little reading up on SLR system and focal lengths. The 55-250 is a long lens, intended and used for subjects that are generally further away.

    A kit set includes the camera body, and a standard zoom lens (which is good enough for starting off). In the EOS 1000D's case, I believe you are also getting a 4GB SD card as a free gift (not sure what else though, because it varies from time to time).

    It's a capable budget camera that can do all of the above subjected to the photgrapher and lenses. Kit retail street price should be around SGD$999.
