Hi,

Most of us have the M410R if your reading these posts have alook at the pic post

http://www.stevesforums.com/forums/v...mp;forum_id=19

see the results of the M410R

You will no doubt see that we are all very happy with the M410R, we know its limitations and just work round them.

Happy Hunting

Cheers Ian

Go with what Ian says. The M410R is a great lil camera in a neat compact package. It does have some limitations of course but that is truly reflected in the cost of the camera so take a look at some of the pics on this forum but remember file sizes have had to be reduced to allow the pics to be shown on here so remember that will affect quality

I went with the M410Ras i think it looks so much better in black

Well there's no IS (image stabilization) but none of us are that bothered, I've never had a camera with it so I don't miss it!

No manual mode although I didn't use this on my previous digi-cam.

The lens isn't the fastest, like the panasonic....sorry I said the name I'll just go and boil my head!!

But the plus points: I tried the Panasonic FZ3 and the Canon S1-IS before buying this, in my opinion these 3 are direct competitors for the the money. Thiscamera has the best EVF out of all of them! the canon and panasonic's EVF's don't gain-up in low light so you can't use them, so just because the panasonic has an auto-focus assist illuminator doesn't mean much if you can't see what your looking at!

Just a quick summary I'm sure lots of others will give more advice.

Cheers Ian

Hi

I think you can easily get add on lenses and filters, when you buy the camera it comes with a shade/adapter ring which is ready to fit standard screw in lenses on!!!

So you just need to save up the pennies to buy your add ons, the filters are just standard screw in with a 52mm thread.

I haven't bought any add ons yet I would just play with the camera and get a feel for it. There are lots of settings to play with, so I would try these before going for the add ons. Saying that a UV or polarising filter is always useful and you can leave it in place to protect the lens.

As for websites for info have a look in the general Q&A second topic down on the main forum menu may have to search through the posts a bit but I think there is some links to web sites there.

you could try a google search that normally brings up results.

Hopefully Other uses will post some info KK's the guy he has add on lenses already.

Cheers Ian

Try this site as it can teach you the basic things

http://www.photoxels.com/digital-pho...tutorials.html

A uv or sky light filter will afford great protection to the lense and it may be wise to get one as soon as you have the camera. Much cheaper to replace a filter then a camera!

Concentrate on getting the most out of the camera as there is a bit to learn regarding manual settings and once you feel you have mastered it maybe look around for a conversion lens.

You should invest in a fast charger and batteries andthis is what i have and works great

Might seem a lil confusing at first what with all the settings....but we are here to help

Tony
