hey there guys n girls. problem is of this, i bought a Olympus epl1 as it was a good price and i wanted to get more into my photography, (seeing as its my job near enough). mainly, i do car photoshoots and at gigs, although not as much. the first 3 times ive used the Olympus, its struggled or just been crap tbh, especially bad at night!
so last night i borrowed a mates canon 550d and wow, its amazing so much better in ever situation. fair enough its double the price, but its more like 10x the camera, better quality, more control and easier to use i found too.
main problem i have is i dont have 600 quid for a camera. (hence getting the Olympus) so am looking at the 500d instead as its the slightly older model which seems 90% the same camera, just a few differences in the movie mode and metering settings. has anyone got either of these cameras, or compared them that can give any input? i now know i want an proper DSLR over a compact systems. but which one? will say i do have a prefernce of canon over nikon, mainly due to familiarity.
all advice is appreciated =]
