Do you have lots of lenses for your old camera system and in that case what brand are they?Hiking Fox wrote:I'd like to get a camera next month, when such things become cheaper in the shops. For years I have just used a basic snapshot digital camera, but I want to get a proper SLR. The last SLR I had used traditional film, but obviously this time I want a vegan camera, so my knowledge is limited and out of date.
Does anybody know anything about digital cameras? I believe there is a massive variation in quality and performance. I'm after something that will allow the flexibility of lenses, filters etc. but nothing too bulky for going hiking with.
Finally, I'd rather avoid any company with a really dodgy ethical record on matters such as arms manufacture, human rights etc. That's the kind of thing I can look up myself after any particular brands have been recommended.
Yeah, unless the company one invest in goes belly up a good lens will keep being a good lens but sensor technology, cpu speeds, onboard memory, screen resolutions and such will keep on improving.fredrikw wrote:When I was looking for a DSLR camera 6 months ago I started to read up on the subject, but pretty soon concluded that as a beginner I'd be fine with whatever brand/model. I ended up with a Nikon D60, for the simple reason that two of my friends had these and were happy with them. Six months later I'm very pleased with it, and it fullfills everything I need (and are able to do) with a DSLR camera.
A word of warning though, it's not the camera itself that's expensive, it's when you discover the world of lenses that things start getting complicated and expensive
