And as the sun goes down, the sun sets on an era of my photography. As it's expected by Thursday/Friday, that I shall be taking delivery of a brand new Canon EOS 650D
, which shall replace my current 1000D for hopefully the next 3 or 4 years or so. The reason for wanting to upgrade is really elementary, the 1000D was formerly Canons absolute base model device, with all the basics of DSLR photography to get the enthusiast started. However since the release of the 1000D, the world has turned. Now Canon have the 1100D as their base model with slightly higher specs than the predecessor (additional modes, more definition, ability to shoot HD movies etc), meaning that mine is below the bottom of the table as far as lineups are concerned, and having seen what the 60D can do, but without the ability to afford it, the 650D was the best option however wallet rapingly expensive it may seem. But the 1000D shall not remain unused and neglected, it is to be passed on to a friend who needs a decent camera, and one that's done twice round the clock without a single fault and still shoots good images, what more could one ask for?
