Hello :)

I am pondering on which camera's to buy. 1) My brother's 2nd hand Canon 550D (Hardly ever used and looks brand new = 18-55mm and 55-250mm lens). 2) Canon 600D new with 18-55mm OR 3) Canon 1100D new with 18-55.

Any ideas please?

It depends on your...

- Budget

- Interests

- Time available to spend

- What you want to do with your images?

In short: The better camera with a longer lens will always be advisable for shooting aircraft, but if you are not planning to learn how to use (know the camera and theory) it and learn how to shoot (understand the subject and action shooting... or will it be stills?) - no camera will help. (Harsh words? Yes - but very true)

SO - tell us more and you will get advice. maybe go over to ODP - were those articles are (FORUM) - and hear what those guys have to say.

Haha, I am still learning apperature, ISO, shutter speed etc so I need a camera that can take good quality images if I get it right..Might just go for a 600D 18-55mm and 70-200/100-400mm :)

I need to get the information on date and time pictures was taken and whether it has been edited. My camera does not have the facility of putting date/time stamps on a picture itself. Is this possible?

That info is usually contained in the EXIF info. Not sure which photo viewing/editing software you use, but generally can be found under the "info"or 'image info" button.

Of course, if the photo has already been edited, then it's possible the image was saved without the EXIF info.
