i got a contax t2 for 250
google it...just a lil bit.
Hey Vortex, I need some help! Im looking to get my wife a nice camera. She is not an expert photographer but really enjoys taking pictures. My question to you guys is, what is a good "starter camera" and what kinds of thing should I look for. Also, if you are in the Seattle area and have a camera that you would be willing to sell, I would probably be intrested in buying yours.
Thanks for your help and advise!!!
PS- Its an anniversary / 1st Baby(due in August) gift.
You need to give us some idea of what your budget is. Does your wife have any experience w/ an SLR camera (either film or digital)? Liking to take pictures is one things, being into photography is another. For getting pictures of your (soon to be) new baby, I would recommend a DSLR, just because there is a lag w/ a P&S from when you press the shutter to when the camera actually takes the picture. You will also need a reasonably fast (low f-stop) lens, as a lot of the shots will be indoors.
I would suggest sticking w/ either a Canon or a Nikon. Not that there's anything wrong w/ a DSLR from Sony, etc., just that Canon and Nikon have been around for a long time, and you will have a better selection of lenses available for either of those bodies.
I don't know much about the different Nikon models (I'm a Canon guy), but something like a T3 or T3i would be pretty nice. But again, it depends on your budget.
Don't like something? Report it. We can't be everywhere at all times.
Damn it, Ry_Guy. I've gone so far out of my way to avoid any pictures of the OMD since the week after it debuted and here you go posting pictures of its sexy self right here in this thread.
