Downgrade From Dslr Canon 550d

29 December 2012 - 09:08 PM

I have a Canon 550d which I purchased about a year ago with a view to getting into photography! But, having not had the time to commit to it I haven't really got very far. I like taking photos but never remember to take my camera out, and I think it's a bit big just to carry round everywhere I go.

So, I was thinking of downgrading to a good quality compact camera with a reasonable zoom instead. I go skiing and windsurfing regularly so having a larger zoom would be ideal. I also like doing bits of video recording so having HD would be good as well.

I am in the process of deciding if this is a good idea or not and if I do sell my Canon I am looking at spending around 200-250 and was looking for some advice and/or recommendations please :-)
