Posted:canon have just launched a new site designed to teach the basics of digital slr photography:

canon digital slr beginner's guide

i know a few of you have got one :greeneyedmonsteremerges: and although it only goes as far as the basics, it is clear and gives some handy advice so i thought it would be nice to post it.

enjoy smile

my handy tip of the week is:

"use the lowest possible iso settings when shooting with digital cameras - the higher the iso, the more noise you will get in your image."

they didn't make that point very clear in the user manual for my camera but it makes a *huge* difference to image quality.

wish i'd known that 400 frames ago... rolleyes
