Cheers guys.

I use the Canon software that came with the camera. Using other methods to resize can reduce picture quality. I usually crop in a fare way too as I'm only using a 18-55mm lens.

I've been thinking about getting a better lens, but that adds to the bulk of the camera, and it's already big enough to cart around. The lens is often the first thing to break also, so spending 1K on a lens is not that appealing.

Thanks. I've got a few more, but starting to run out. I'll have to go on more rides.

I may keep an eye out for another 350d with 18-55 as the 20D and 28-70 f2.8 is a bit much for adventuring.

The little Olympus 1030 is great but can't match the quality of the Canon shots.
The Canon can't match the quality of the Olympus waterproofing however

I'm using the 450D and thinking about bigger lenses, but having second thoughts. Some lenses are bloody heavy and bulky. I'm pretty rapt with the camera. Must be pretty good to handle the treatment I give it.

The new 500D comes with HD movies. Could be worth considering.
