Many people/mags etc say upgrade the body to say a 450d but surely this won't make me a better photographer? Also could the £400 be better spent on say a macro lens as i'm itching to get upclose and personal next spring!!
So really for peace of mind is it better i stick with the 350d learn the basics,get to know the theory and camera inside out and practice hard or is an upgrade really on the cards???
any advice gratefully recieved............
Personally, if I was in your position, I would keep your 350D and learn how to use it to it's full potential. Join your local camera club or spend a few days on a course run by a professional photographer to help you improve your skills with the camera. If you have money, save it up until you can afford a lens with real quality as this will show as a far greater benefit to the quality of your photos in the long run than upgrading the body of the camera will ever do.
