We've actually got one of these, which cost us over £400 some years ago. It's only 4mp but does take pretty good photos.

Sony DSC-P9

The downer with it, apart from the lack of memory is the responsiveness is crap and the battery power is fucking crap. Not only would it only last for a few pics it would take a couple of milleniums to charge up the flash, which meant a lot of embarrassing waits when people were posing for shots at parties.

It's worth about £10 if that these days

Hope he enjoys it, LLC! I was looking at Nikons before I bought my Canon.

Having never used a DSLR before it, I can definitely say they're the way to go; I loooove mine now! They're amazingly easy to get to grips with. It'll be second nature to him before he knows it!

Why he needs it though is beyond my imagination as he can barely operate a normal camera!

And as No chance says DSLRs have modes which are really simple to use. Pretty much point and shoot. The benifots of them is that they have more complicated functions which are their ready when you are ready to use them.

I often go into idiot proof mode when I just want to snap and not worry about settings and stuff. capture the moment and all that :)

He was hinting at the d5000 but it was too dear and too complicated so were getting the D3000 and he can upgrade in a few years if he wants.

This is a reason why we should stand up against the current establishment trend to discourage Street photography.

What is a banal shot today is fascinating in over 100 years time ....

Which one's Stinky? :D

I love shots like that and the other one. Like you say, what probably looked mundane then is fascinating now. I love random shots of streets/roads and town centres and stuff. They change that often that the pics will be fascinating after only a couple of years in some cases.

They can discourage me all they like, I won't listen. I enjoy my hobby and I won't let some tinfoil tosser tell me I shouldn't be taking pictures of a street on which a few years ago I could photograph all day if I wanted with no-one bothering me.

It's quite sad that you know that everyone in the photo is now dead. :(

Well that's a weight off my mind!! I managed to clean the muck off my camera's sensor yesterday using some swabs and claening fluid that was delivered on x-mas eve. Phew!!!
