    Could anyone out there provide me with recommendations based on their own experience, as regards which Canon EOS camera to purchase.
    During most of recorded history I have been a Nikon purchaser, but I have been impressed with photos posted by a friend who has a Canon 750 D. However, that is a tad out of my price range.
    But I was wondering if, after doing many hours of confusing research of my own, anyone out there could perhaps point me to what is in their opinion, a value for money Canon EOS system camera which won’t brake the bank?
    I appreciate this might tend to be regarded as how long is a piece of string type question, but any personal experiences as regards a Canon DSLR would be great. Thanks in anticipation.

    Hi G

    I’ve had a Canon EOS for years  (various models) Bloody good cameras with loads of lenses available.

    I bought a 700D for my partner from Ebay for a couple of hundred   and was a great buy,  I have a 70D  myself but all canons are good value in my opinion.

    personally I wouldnt use anything else.

    Thanks itrals,

    I’m currently looking at models which will take the Arsenal smart camera assistant, which looks a great piece of kit.

    Despite what I said about a 750 D being out of my range, I am currently looking at that particular model if I am honest, but would like to know of or about less advanced models.

    Having seen the quality of the photos Babeth has posted, a camera like hers seems to be an ideal solution.

    I think VK, that if you ask babeth, you’ll perhaps find out it was me who recommended that camera to her.  Or at least, to Bill for her. I admit though, that babeth’s shots are superb, though I think that is also more probably due to the fact that she is a fabulous photographer.

    Having recommended it, G, you wouldn’t want one yourself?

    VK, I have to own up and say that every one of the 4 or so pocket digitals I have ever owned I have managed to bugger up. On  the other hand, pre DLSR cameras or Single lense reflex cameras, several of which I have from Olympus OM 1’s through to my Nikon F3 and Minoltas I kept for years and even managed to sell off without losing a great deal in the end, all in perfect working order too. I also loved the chunkiness of them for  these ham fisted mitts of mine. And, they took wonderful shots, most of which I developed myself in a darkroom I had access to.
