Iheard abt this forum long ago but only joined today.
I am very interested in photography i would say, but has a seriously tight budget that held me back from getting DSLR all the while, so i have been using digital cameras to pull off stunts and shoots nice photos wannabes.
When I saw G11 i thought i should get it since its not yet a dslr yet it can "replace" them in terms of quality. (am i right..maybe 70%?)
Then few of my friends advised me to get dslr instead for better and bigger sensors, as well as "constant" aperture. Not sure wad the constant is supposed to mean. perhaps when using a better lens?
My budget is around 1000 and most probably getting a canon after all the reviews and comparisons made in forums.
So yes i am now looking at 1000D and 500D.
However 500D is over my budget, zzz sian.
Just want to know, how bad can 1000D be. cos i saw ppl totally rejecting it.
And regarding the 18-55mm kit lens, any samples of how photos may look like when taken with them? And the largest aperture is 3.5? can it create the term u all coined it as "bokeh" very well?
Thank you thank you.
