My friend asked my opinion on what camera he should buy. So here are my two cents I want to share with all of you. …
- Seriously consider buying a camera that is already used by your friends. If it's a Digital Single Reflex Camera (DSLR aka camera where you change the lenses) then you may get lenses and equipments borrowed from your friends in physical world. But it's also good to have friends in virtual forums who can advice you to use your new camera. But if you borrow lenses and stuff from your friends, make sure you don't cause any damage or you will no longer have those friends!
- Consider buying a DSLR camera for what you can get adapter rings for lenses made by other manufacturers. At least for Nikon and Canon there are adapters available for almost any trademarks.
- If you have any old gear (lenses etc. bought before digital era) then try to find a camera body that can use those lenses. Nowadays there are adapters and lenses available even for rather rare lenses.
- Stabilizers have become quite common even for DSLR cameras. Give serious thought for this because the stabilizer can really save you from many blurred pictures when relatively long exposure used.
- Make sure you can get rather noiseless pictures with the camera. In other word the camera should be capable to use rather high ISO sensitive values and also do that without causing noise and graininess.
