I’m planning to get a new camera, and I need your help. I’ve always had a bottom-of-the-barrel camera, and I’m ready to upgrade. (I’ve actually been ready for an upgrade for a year or more, just couldn’t commit and didn’t want to spend the money. I still don’t really want to spend the money, actually. But, I’m ready, nonetheless.)
I will completely admit that it takes more than a good camera to take good photos. But, with the number of photos I take, it’s time for an upgrade.
I’m hoping to find a camera that I can use for many years. I don’t want to have to purchase a new camera in a year or two. So, the technology has to have some staying power. But, with that said – I’m not looking for anything that is the total top-of-the-line. I’m not going to be a professional photographer and don’t want to mortgage my house to get a camera and equipment. I just need something better than the least expensive camera at the store.
(And, the least expensive has served me well up to now… it’s just time to move up.)
Since I know so many of you take such good photos – and pretty much all of you take better photos than me – I really would love your advice and help.
What type of camera do you use and like? What do you hate? Any thoughts or insights for me? What should I look for?
This is kinda a big purchase, which brings out my nerves. (On a side note, I have more nerves about buying a silly camera than when we bought the little house. I’m a strange cat.)
I’ve done quite a bit of research and have ideas, but really want your thoughts, too.
