I'm sorry for not being with you here for a long time.
I want and I need to get back to the fantastic world which is full of spirit: the world of PHOTOGRAPHY.
So, I'm looking for a new camera and I need your great advice.
I'm little confused about these:
- Canon 600D
- Nikon D5100
- Nikon D3100
Thanks in advance and I appreciate your words.
Lol Brad... though you very well know that it isn´t the merit of the camera to take phenomenal photos ;) Would be a bit simple to just buy an Olympus E30 and shoot amazing photos (hmm... or get hired by Playboy...)
But you are right... why always stick to Canikon?
Give yourself a budget and try to get most out of it... not sure it is Canon and Nikon. Olympus, Pentax or Sony certainly are worth a try.
And I totally agree on the fact that you need to hold a camera in your hands first... no use buying the best camera on earth if it is unusable for yourself...
You are right and I never meant to imply it was the camera that takes great shots. My intention was simply that not all great images come from the most expensive lines of cameras. In the right hands even a simple cardboard box drug store camera can do amazing things.
My thoughts, if misinterpreted I am sorry, were meant to imply that of all the cameras I have owned I have been the happiest with my Olympus. Simply pointing out that not all top shelf shooters use the Nikon and Canon system at all times. To many people are under the impression that to be the best at this craft they must spend an enormous amount of money on equipment. I was hoping to bring a twist to that by pointing out that other brands can produce great images in the right hands, its not necessary to invest big money. I hang out with a group of 6-8 local shooters. The two of us with professional clientele and experience are also the ones with the least amount of equipment.
I love the "Canikon" word. I may have to borrow that ;)
The camera dosent matter most digital cameras today are fantastic any of the cameras you listed are all capable of excellent results along with olympus,pentax,sony etc. Its the person behind the camera that counts.:)
The pentax k-r is also a nifty camera with image stabilization in the body. Even a k10 or k20..one of the older ones is a very nice choice!
