On Monday night I joined the Queenstown Photography Club. I went with a friend. My desire for a DSLR has increased, this group is an opportunity to get support to use the DSLR. I don't want to be stuck in auto mode, I want to explore the camera and what it can do. I want to make images.
I have been researching what will work for me...it came down to a more entry level DSLR in both Canon & Nikon - the 600D & the D5100 and then a more 'enthusiast' model in Canon (60D) & Nikon (D90). I was gearing towards the Canon 60D...and a posed Facebook question came up with a similar result. Right at this very moment this is the camera I am aiming for! But then I have the problem of what lens to get. The common thought is that the kit lenses aren't very good...I checked out some lenses and wonder about going for a standard 'prime' lens e.g. EF 50mm F1.8 and then save for further lenses.
I have found some fun videos in my finding out...
I even found a site of camera tips for the 60D!
