    Ps caroline I am considering buying an SLR camera know nothing about them...need to start learning...any advice reccomendations...what do you use...I want basic but good...about 400 budget.?

    1. Hi no I don't mind at all, though I'm afraid I don't know all that much! I have a Canon EOS 1100D which I think was just under 300. It's their entry level, more basic model so might be good option. I'm pretty pleased with mine! Nikon do a similar priced entry level model too, though I cant remember what it was called. You might be able to go up a step from those with you budget though! Hope that helps a little. xx

  8. All so very beautiful and Happy belated birthday Archie...happy Summer holidays.
