Ok I am a total NOOB and aparently clueless on top of that.. so let's just start with this... I have been searching and searching and searching for the perfect camera.. not too expensive with quick shutter speeds to take multiple shots. I can probably figure out zoom and focus.. I am totally confused with lighting and all that, but I'll get to that eventually too...
I bought a camera that was according to the seller.. "top notch" SLR.. yeah not.. it sucked.. it had a burst feature which was kind of what I need, but you couldn't use flash with it so that sucked. It had a lot of other features but auto zoom and all that and it was not what I wanted so I sent it back.
Anyone have any camera suggestions for me??? Price right now doesn't matter to me, I don't want to break the bank, but I'd like a starting point of what specs to look for when I research.
Also, I have photoshop elements 7.0. I don't know how to use it but I also have paint shop pro photo x2 and regular paint shop pro x2. what filters/actions do you recommend for either of these programs??
Thanks in advance.
merr, i prefer my canon for a number of reasons. one of the selling points for me was that companies like sigma and tamron make lenses that will fit. from what i was told, nikon only takes nikor lenses, which mean more money. other than that, it is very easy to use and is comfortable in my hands. check out www.dpreview.com and www.bhphoto.com for reviews. do your research but don't buy until you hold one in your hands and play with it. that's the only way you will know if it's the right camera for you.
Which camera did you return...that might help.
