Geek Shaykh - Cameras to suit your lifestyle

Geek Shaykh - Cameras to suit your lifestyle

Issue 64 January 2010

For moments that deserve to be captured, Robi Chowdhury compiles the ideal selection of cameras to suit your lifestyle. 

Canon EOS 500D

Crystal clear 15 megapixel Camera


After being involved in emel shoots, I’ve always wanted to try my hand at photography. I had dabbled in it before with a digital compact camera, but I needed something with a little more power and features to allow me to go that extra mile.

I was told that a digital SLR was the way forward and so eventually I caved in and bought one.

 Many internet searches later, I discovered that the Canon 500D seemed to look like a reasonable choice considering my needs. Essentially at the price range, there isn’t much difference between cameras of this calibre, but you need to determine what and where you will be shooting.

This 15.1 mp camera can also shoot video in full high definition (1080p), producing crystal clear footage and is not just a gimmick extra. The still shots look great on large poster sized prints. When light levels fall, the camera has an ISO range up to 3200 for dark environments. The lens I am using comes as standard but as with any SLR, you can fork out the money and fit telephoto and wide-angles. 

The 500D also offers a reasonably long battery life and a number of customisable features such as the ability to shoot pictures using an infra-red remote control that you can buy separately.

This camera is perfect if you’re looking to start some serious photography at a reasonable price.

Available from with 18-55mm IS Lens at £579.00
