I was trying to get them small enough so that they would be accepted within the posting but they have gone a bit jaggy in places..

Spot-on photos! So what sort of dosh are we talking about for that sort of camera? I have a Nikon F60 with a Sigma 28-300 lense and, being a lazy sod, hardly ever use it (preferring my Sony digi with a 3.2 pixel lense). Not anywhere near your expertise, but need to take the odd piccy for painting purposes - do you reckon it's worth me changing?

Nice shots. Did you do any sharpening and if so was it before of after re-sizing them?


All depends what sort of pictures yoy are trying to take. You can get a Canon 300D of about 700GBP nowadays. That gives you a 6mp digi SLR albeit with reduced capabilites compared to the D60 I use, however I have seen some superb images with it.

It does all depend on the quality of glass you put in front of the sensor. The more you spend on Lenses the better quality pictures you will get. This isnt always noticable on pictures displayed on the web (although sometimes you it allows you to get images you couldnt get with lenses lower down the quality range); however if you blow them up to A3 size and above, it becomes more apparent. I have both Low and High quality lenses, its horses for courses really.

If you are happy with your current kit then dont change for the sake of it. But if you need to get large prints then its certainly worth going for 6mp plus (new Canons will have 8mp plus).

I was very lazy, I just used the sharpening facility in Microsoft Photo Editor (very basic but very quick) and then resized.

These are about all the digi shots I took over the weekend bar a few 'dark' arrivals pics. Monday was a different story but I reverted to my faithful 'old' provia 100f slide film and managed around 20 rolls I think.
