    Default Newbie asking question

    Hi, I know I should read more before asking but I am sure many of you have past this phase in your quest on photography. Just want some jump start.

    I think I will be likely to be looking at Canon but I am not sure what is the real difference between the 550D and 5000. For Canon, as the number goes lower, like 450D, it is a lower model?

    Guess u r comparing between 550D and 500D instead of 5000??

    Anyway, the bigger the number means it is a newer version of the same series ( in your case the XXXD series)... not lower model... haha

    the comparisons of course are not comprehensive, just some physical aspects...

    If you have the budget, just go for 550D. All the best!

    as the number goes lower, like 450D, it is an OLDER model.

    Hi, thank you for those tips but the numbers will take a while to learn. Will be keeping up and buy my Christmas present this year

    It is not about the numbers ... it is about the knowledge of taking a good picture.

    Regardless of camera, you should be able to start your journey. If a professional can use a compact camera, does it mean that the camera is good or the photographer is good?

    A journey of a million miles begin with a single step. Get a camera, and start shooting. Start putting into practice what you've read.

    May the Force be with you. Cheers!
    A picture a day keeps the blues away!
