Hey everyone, I'm (finally) dipping my toes into the world of photography & need something to just ease my way into the swing of things. Long story short - I've got about £150 to spend on a camera. Now I thought to myself 'this is definitely not an off-the-shelf DSLR budget, I may as well start looking at these bridge cameras. Some of them seem pretty decent for the money - you've got some lower down the scale that are basically average point-and-shoot cameras with a ridiculous zoom stuck on the front. And then you've some that actually give you some versatility in the form of manual controls & produce decent looking pictures. Then - I came across this little guy, the 350D. They're going second hand on eBay with your standard 18-55mm lens for around £100. That seems to me like an incredible price for a DSLR, regardless of the age. I then did my standard Flikr crawl, saw the photos those guys have been posting on here & was completely blown away (especially compared to the bridge cameras I was looking at). Is it a good camera for a beginner to buy in 2013 (going on 2014) over something like a Fujifilm S4500/Nikon L820? Cheers! PS. I'd also like to point out that I posted this thread here as oppose to the 'Buying Tips' forum as the majority of the posts in there are 'should I buy a gold iPhone or a white iPhone'.
