Amateur? Looking for a DSLR? Look no further.
4 February, 2012
If you are an amateur photographer looking to upgrade to a DSLR, the Canon 550D is the product to have. Though it is an 18 MP beauty, you can very well set the pixel size to 10 MP or lower; it will save you a lot of space on the card, without compromising on the quality of pictures. The 18-55 IS kit lens is a general, all purpose piece of glass that suits most needs. However, if you wish to do some wildlife, which most amateurs set their sights at, it's better if you get yourself either the Canon 70-300 IS, or a third party lens, preferably the Tamron. The camera comes with a live view screen, but I prefer to compose my pictures through the optical viewfinder. All in all, a great piece of equipment to have, and most assuredly you will spend hours and hours fiddling with it, discovering a new trick each time you go out with it.
