What camera to get?
Posted 11 July 2012 - 03:08 PM
I'm in need of a bit of help.
I'm after a nice digital camera to photograph my cars aswell as landscape photography and my RS.
Plus my sister has just given birth to a baby today, so my father said he will go in halfs for a camera.
Trouble is, I have next to no idea about what camera is any good and what type I should get :(
I've been looking on the net and that hasn't helped at all, unfortunately.
I'm wondering if anybody here has a little more knowledge than I do in the subject of good cameras.
I don't want to be spending anything over £200, and I don't want a big massive thing like Peter parker's, lmao.
I just want something that's got a good picture quality, Is easy to use, hd screen and reasonable price :)
I've been thinking of that new coolpix that's been on the tv lately, the one with 18x zoom. But dunno if that's suitable for taking pics of my models, it looks like a camera for city photography tbh.
Well I hope someone can help me, would be much appreciated :)

Personally, I've got a Sony Cybershot that I've had for going on four years now, and it's served me well for a variety of tasks. Unfortunately I can't get more specific on brands or models. I know I like my Sony, but Nikon and Canon are reliable brands as well. Really, if you go in the store with a list of requirements and walk out with one of those three brands that satisfies your list, you're probably all right.
*I'm by no means an expert, I'm just trying to get you started. Maybe someone more knowledgable can step in here...

It's half price at £99. So I'll only be paying £50 for it really.
Rekon I should go for that one??? It sounds like a good deal to me :)

All kidding aside, I just bought a Canon Powershot S95 for my daughter ... for the size it takes some amazing shots I must agree, and it still has full manual and RAW file format ... but it is only 10mpixel ... but do you really need more ?
There is a newer Powershot S100 out, but that one is more expensive, and the extras didn't matter for me, so I went for the 'old' model at a serious discount.

Maybe take a look for Nikon One or Canon G1 .. I think they are a little bit over 200GBP but.. They are worth any money ;)

I went for the samsung, after.
It was further reduced to £79, so I was very happy with the deal.
The pictures it takes are amazing fair play.
When I get a chance I'll take some of my cars :)
Cheers again :)
