Default I need some help ! Please...

Hi there everybody !

Well, i'm thinking about buy a CANON EOS 300D... But, i don't know if i will have problems using this camera. Is the CANON EOS 300D operating very difficult ?

My only experience with photography was with a SONY MAVICA FD100...

The degree of difficulty lies with the individual. The Canon Rebel is a very easy camera to learn and use for most people, but it's not a camera that you take out of the box and take perfect pictures with without first reading the manual and getting a feel for the camera and how it operates unless you have prior SLR experience.

Can you drive a car? Can you operate your VCR? If you can operate those, I don't see where a camera is going to give you that much trouble. Of course, it may not make you an artist.

Yes, if you are willing to learn, you can use a 300D. It isn't simple, but it isn't hard either. The hard part (relative) is understanding photography to get great pictures. It's a good camera for all around use.

Guys... Thanks a lot !

Well, i'll download the 300D manual to learn more about SLRs and about this camera !

Here in Brazil, US$999 it's a LOT of money, so, i think that i'll have a lot of time to learn about this kind of camera ( untill i have enough money to buy the REBEL ). :lol:

Thanks again...
