New Camera - Canon 500D

I've been looking to buy a digital SLR camera for a long time however the cost has always put me off. I recently decided I had waited long enough and upgraded my Fujifilm Finepix F70EXR to a Canon 500D. The F70EXR was a perfectly capable point and shoot camera but it lacked the complete photographic control that only a DSLR can provide.

I've only had the camera a few weeks but so far I have been very happy with the results. I currently own just the kit lens (18-55mm) but after reading lots of reviews I intend to purchase the Canon 50mm f1.8 as soon as possible.

One of the things that has surprised me the most are the videos produced by the camera. The quality is excellent and it is possible to produce some very interesting results though using a shallow depth of field. Unfortunately unlike the 550D this 500D allows very limited control over the cameras operation while in video mode.

I will post some pictures in the next few days.
