Ive now owned a Canon S45 for 6 months now. This weekend I decided to dust down the EOS50e it replaced, get it a new battery, load up some fujifilm 200 and add on the 75-300 zoom. Much as I love the S45, couldnt help noticing the control and quality of lens that an SLR gives you. Felt I took some really good shots (it was sunny in Lytham!!). Then realised why the camera hadnt been used for six months, I still have 12 shots to use and when I use them Ill still have to wait a few days, and even then the shots may have been misjudged. Once this film is used up back to the cupboard it goes. The lenses have a chance of a new life (if ever I can afford EOS D60/30), but the body has no future!!!!
