    I don't know about the camara, but use your creativity and eye for an interesting subject. Thats where the quality is. (Thats my theory since I dont have a big expensive camara)..

    I pack two things wherever I go: A gun and a camera. You probably don't want to end up in front of either one.

    What Greg is trying to say is, it's not so much the camera as the photographer (it's not the arrow, it's the Indian).

    Having said that, almost any current DSLR will give you good pictures, and will certainly be an upgrade from a point & shoot camera. Hopefully, someone who has that particular model will chime in and be able to give you some details.

    Until then, it is kind of hard to answer that question without knowing what your goals are for a new camera. Are you planning on portraits of family, pictures at the beach, landscapes, wildlife, sports (kids or otherwise), etc.?

    And what's your budget? Just in case that's the wrong camera for what you're looking to do, maybe we can point you in the right direction.

    cheers guys, my budget is only 400 and all i want it for is to take family days out, and every day happening, if I'm spending this money i want to get the right one for me. i like the look of it, but not knowing much about cameras it looks scary
