    Any suggestions?

  • #2
    An SLR camera is definitely way better than any ordinary digital camera. No doubt about that!

    Which DSLR is best, is a subject of heated debate though! Here's something I found after a little research. What do you think!

      I have more experience in using SLR. I enjoyed using an SLR. I find it more raw and challenging. I guess there are the pros and cons. With the SLR, you need to carry lots and lots of films. Developing the films is crucial to getting the best results.

      I guess that is one of the pros in using a DSLR, you can just shoot, shoot and shoot. No need to worry about running out of films.

      I guess I just like the challenge and element of surprise you get when using the SLR.

    Wait up. It's a Nikon N-d3500 innit? It has barely any noticeable improvement from the previous version. Costs a lot more tho...

    I'd suggest Cannon. I'm a huge fan personally!

      I'm just a beginner. I think Nikon is more beginner-friendly. Canon has a few models that are beginner friendly as well, but I favor Nikon for some reason

        This forum has piqued my interest in photography again. I have been looking at different cameras. As advised by friends who are into photography, I could start with a mirrorless SLR. They said that for mirrorless, Fujifilm and Sony have more experience in that arena.I am hoping that I could take this up as a hobby after the pandemic. In the meantime, I will do more readings and save money for an SLR.

      This should answer a lot of questions and should shut a few mouths.

        There's a wide range of cameras available in the market right now. I did a thorough research before I bought mine.

            I think it would depend on the purpose of the camera in general. If it's for taking pictures only, you have to consider setting and lighting -- expanding further to the type of lens. If it's for shooting video, vlogs, or documentaries, generally, there are other types of cameras for those, and 35mm lens are generally better in that case. For beginners, I'd suggest the kit lens because you'd be able to see the many variations you can experiment around on.

              SLRs are definitely better than Point-and-Shoot cameras but have you really thought how? and is there any scenario when a point-n-shoot is 'best to have' than those high-definition ones? Here is a nice read on the pros and cons across the old vs the new https://expertphotography.com/dslr-v...shoot-cameras/

              Sometimes you just want it handy

                I agree that your camera should depend on where and how you would use it so you can be sure that you are purchasing a gear that features your needs. It's all about finding the right camera for you.
                I found this guideline designated for beginners to better help you in choosing your camera. https://www.digitaltrends.com/photog...-buying-guide/
                Hope this helps.

                  I own a Fujifilm X-A5 mirrorless camera and for the life of me I can never take good photos even with a mobile phone. With newer phones, I finally found out that my hands are too shaky to take sharp images so I use a tripod to take photos that I can just use an app to click the shutter and not have to spoil the shot with my shaky hands. Also have this nifty studio like, all white diorama looking thingy that I can take "professional" photos like those images used online catalogs. I may not be the best but life hacks is real.
