Thread: DSLR

  1. #1


    I need to pick the brains of those that know as I am stumped.

    I want to expand my fishing trips to include photography. God knows the fish aren't playing.

    My dilema is that I have no idea where to start.

    The first question is that of budget. I can go to £400 but would prefer not to.

    The pictures I am going to focus on are:

    Fish shots (self take)

    Scenic views of the surroundings

    Family days

    Wildlife close ups

    Your opinions are as always appreciated.

    For about £320 you can get a Canon G10 which is just about the best compact camera around.

    Google it and read the reviews. And it's very easy to use.

    As you progress you might want something more capable of profession shots. That means a Nikon D40 DSLR.

    Remember, Canon for compacts, Nikon for DSLRs.

    I was looking at the D40x as a starter.

    Being 10.2 mega pixels it laughs at my current 5 meg fuji.

    Is this a good starter? I have read that it is the lenses with the motor rather than the body. Will this reduce the after sales lens addons or am I being lazy with auto focus?

    The D40x is the upgraded version.

    My mate has a D40 but I wasn't too impressed with the zoom on the standard lens hence the question about after sales lenses and the focus motor.

    Unfortunately he is overseas right now so I can't have an extended go to make my mind up.
