Camera hunt

I think it's time to retire my quite old Canon EOS 400D, had it for about 12 or more years now and it wasn't new when I got it.


I'm looking for a simple to use DSLR with video good HD capability, but it has to be simple to use as I hate manuals, and hate reading them even more.


A simple button to switch between modes, rather than going into settings is preferred and hopefully in the £1-200 price range used.


Canon preferred as I have a few lenses, but would look at others.

Our nephew in Madrid recently decided to buy a good camera to enter competitions and I don't know which one but it was €6k. He does post some stunning pics on Twitter though.

Mee too Kev. Most of my snaps are on a $25 Casio as I keep forgetting the phone takes much better pics.

Kev


I hope nobody does a 'spoonerism' on the thread title.


I can't help with the camera question.

Makes my FOUR Casio digital cameras at $25 each a bit silly.
