My Canon 300D EOS house died on Sunday (it was probably worn out) and today (Thursday) I received my new 450D EOS in the mail. Naturally, I was eager to test it out and went up to Sandvikhornet (and later on Skåla) after dark. I set the camera in Bulb mode (long exposures under user control), but as it was a very bright evening, I stopped most captures after 45-60 seconds. And the result, compared to the 300?

Oh boy...

I can only imagine what the professional cameras are delivering. But they're unfortunately out my price range. But to those out there who wonder if they should upgrade from their 300D - do it!
