Camera type

3 posts in this topic

I always wanted to get a camera for those special pictures that come up that a typical camera can not catch. Just wondering what type or brands that you would recommend ? Not sure as to what shutter speed is my biggest question. Do not want to get to deep but some helpful hints for someone that wants to get started . Obviously I would not be able to afford top of the line camera but just something in the middle. So much to choose from but do not have a clue where to start. Any information would be greatly appreciated. I Love the pics in this forum a bunch of great pics! Hopefully someday I can add to them.

I've had good luck with my Canon Rebel XT and XTi. You can get a used XT for around $300 WITH LENS if you know where to look, IE online classified and places like National Camera Exchange.

Same can be said for a Nikon D40. Both are older digital SLRs but you can get some remarkable shots with either, and they are perfect for the beginner.

And there are just some of us who can't afford a Canon 5D Mark II with 3 L series lenses or a Nikon D700 :P

Canon or Nikon are both very good brands if you ever think about seriously getting into photography. Both offer a larger selection of lenses then Sony, Olympus, etc do for their SLRs; as they can both use film lenses; which for someone with a budget, finding a used film lens for my Canon for under $100 is allways a nice little gem then having to spend $500 on one that is new.

What I would do is this: go to your local camera store, and ask them to let you play with both Nikon and Canon DSLRs; either the Dxx or Canon Rebel series. Both of these are great cameras, and are easy to use.

Find out which one both fits your budget and feels best to YOU by doing this. Everyone can say that one camera is better then another; but it also comes down to your own preferences on how easy you feel the camera is to use, or how comfortable the controls are.

    • He was talking about updating and upgrading our nuclear weapons,  which aren't related to the middle east.    Getting the 53 brigade combat teams up to readiness standards also will cost money.  
    • How much of that $6 trillion do you suppose is military spending?  I’d venture to guess a large amount of it.  Now while he talks about spending so much in the middle east and ignoring issues at home he apparently wants to add an additional $54 billion to the defense budget which will more than likely be funneled back into the middle eat one bomb at a time.   He might make sense in what he says from time to time but then his actions seem immediately contradict his words. Should we believe the words or the actions more?
    •  Decriminalization only makes small possession and usage kinda illegal.    Laws still have to be upheld.   Mexican cartels still would not be allowed to ship tons of cocaine over the boarder. Doctor still can't write false scripts.  Gangs still cannot run drug dens Staus quo     Just push for complete legalization. Regulate through the government. Lower the cost of product.     Cross your fingers you don't get a Russian heroine epidemic.    Freedom restored.      
    • "We spend $6 trillion in the Middle East, and we have potholes all over our highways and our roads"

      Every now and then it is hard to argue with Trump, the positives aren't many but he is not wrong about everything.
    •     Also, how do you explain the growth rate of U.S. incarcerations since Nixon began the War on Drugs in 1971?   You don't think there is big money involved in prisons?       http://fox6now.com/2017/02/25/private-prison-stocks-up-100-since-president-trumps-win/          
    • DALLAS TRADES BENN to Montreal !!!!!!   Jordie   for a 4th round pick and some no-name....Jordie was bad and playing worse lately
    •   He won't ask anyone's advice - that's a big part of the problem.  But judging by his actions and words, he fully intends to return to the criminalization/prison approach.  You know, the method that was a complete failure in the past.   Why wouldn't pharma be worried about heroin and meth?  They make versions of both, so it is direct competition.  There is also real life evidence to suggest that marijuana can be used as a replacement for opioids for pain, so that is a reason for them to be opposed to the legalization of weed, also.  Do you have a better explanation as to why Trump wants to step up enforcement of federal laws against legal purveyors of marijuana according to their state law, rather than simply changing the FDA/DEA classification?                   They would be comparable, except they have spent close to a trillion dollars on the War on Drugs since Nixon signed it into law,      
    •   Is this speculation or do you have a source for this information?    
    • Without media, you will only get what news from the party in control that they wish to give you. With no freedom of the press, no matter what they say, you will eventually lose more than the 1rst. amendment.  Let's see what happens when the President addresses Congress and if it's a rally speech or a substance speech with policy? If it's just rah-rah??, with the corrupt  media,----make up your own mind.
