SLR star

I got a new camera! A digital SLR and it’s great. I still love my little Nikon Coolpix (for really close up it is still better), but the new camera is great for me. It’s a Sony a200, which is entry level for SLRs but unless you’re a pretty serious photographer I wonder why most people would need to go bigger and better. At £350 (and £20 for 1Gb memory stick) I get all the features I need (and then some), and the quality of the image is excellent.

I’m sure a pro photographer would find it a bit rubbish, but I’m not a pro, and I don’t need 6 foot high prints of what I do so I’m happy anyway.
