Hey, I have been looking through the forums on this website for a fair while, and reading up on the various topics. Usually reading the topics on Beginners looking for some advice. This is more or less why i am here, i have been reading up a lot on the various cameras and i am still undecided. Obviously i am looking to begin learning photography so i am not going to spend two thousands pounds on a professional camera. How ever i have been looking at the cannon 40d as perhaps a good starter camera, that will be good for a fair while and not just a stepping stone camera. Any one have any opinions? Also i know some of the basics of photography, but is there any websites you can mention that focus more on the technical side such as focusing on the camera settings? As many of the websites i have seen linked just focus on the equipment. Any advice or opinions will be a great help. So feel free to write what you want Cheers soul.
