A friend of mine was just given a second hand Digital SLR (a Canon EOS 5D complete with pretty basic kit lens) and asked me for advice on how to get the most out of it as its his first DSLR experience.
I thought that the question would make a good reader discussion – what would you advise him?
You can give him some tips on what other gear would help him most (lenses, flash, filters….etc) AND/OR some basic tips on using a DSLR for the first time.
Hopefully your answers will make a useful resource for those of our readers also getting a DSLR for the very first time.
