  • I don't see any of the four mentioned cameras (sd400 - 550) on the Canon Switzerland homepage.
    What I do see are things like the IXUS 700 which looks similiar to the SD500. Anyone know if they're just named differently according to region, or if I'm looking at the wrong thing...

    • Yes they are named 'IXUS' in Europe, though I don't know the exact model matches.

      • Sd200 = Ixus 30
        Sd300 = Ixus 40
        Sd400 = Ixus 50
        Sd450 = Ixus 55
        Sd500 = Ixus 700
        Sd550 = Ixus 750

            • It's awesome to find this thread. I am one of the few in it, who actually run a Vbulletin based photography site, check it out: The Aquatic Photography Forum

              Kiers, very nice stuff, and your bag from the early part of the thread is very nice, similar to mine (just more complete). I have 20d w/battery pack, STE2 Controller (for aquatic photography mostly), 100mm 2.8, 12-24 Tokina, 24-70L (best lens EVER), 70-200 Sigma (sharp as can be, i got lucky), plus a 420ex and a 580ex. Here are some recent samples of my stuff, aquatic and otherwise:

                          • Just got a 350D and am shooting with the kit lense, which is a 18-55mm without IS. A lot of shots, even with decent lighting are coming out a bit blury. Still decent images, but just a bit of blur. Just curious if I could get some opinions on the 17-85mm with IS. Is it worth the $450 price tag? Looking for something general purpose.

                            My next question is, what would be a decent tele lense for under $300. Also, what would be a decent portrait lense for under $300 as well. Will the 17-85mm give me a decent blur on the backgrounds, or is it to generalized?

                                The 18-55mm kit lens may be a little soft at the edges but it won't be the cause of blurry images. Remember with 35mm photography you need to obey the 1/focal-length rule, ie: if you are shooting with a 200mm lens you need to have a shutter speed of 1/200 of a second or faster to be able to hand-hold the camera without shaking. A 50mm lens requires 1/50s and a 500mm lens requires 1/500s etc.

                                Regarding lens upgrades:
                                • Yes, the EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM really is that much better than the kit lens. Get one.
                                • I recommend that people go with the relatively new EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM for excellent value for money. It's a lot of lens for not a serious dent in your wallet and the image quality is very good for a non-L lens.
                                • For portraits with a very blurry background (bokeh) you can't go wrong with the EF 50mm f/1.8 II. It costs less than $100 and is Canon's smallest and lightest lens. The quality is excellent and the aperture is so large that at with the aperture wide open at f/1.8 the depth of field is narrow enough that in a portrait focused on the eyes, the tip of the nose and the ears are blurry.
