Re: Camera for beginners

The G15 is meant to be a compact DSLR backup.  It has manual features to behave like a DSLR.  It will meet most of your above expectations.  However...

  • if you look at image samples.... the DSLR's larger sensor will yield better images
  • if you want to do weddings, you need a DSLR
  • you want more than the built in flash for a weddings.

The D3300 is a good affordable starter to see if you want to continue your journey with photography and/or a DSLR.

Re: Camera for beginners

Nikon D3300 - - you will love the Guide Mode - - which is kind of like having the most important parts of the owners manual, right on the dial on top of the camera. Guide Mode walks a new photographer through the technique of shooting creative photos "the proper way" AND "the easy way" so that the new photographer gets the photo they want "now" while learning how to shoot. And so that the new photographer retains the knowledge for future similar shots and gets better / more productive / more creative as they continue to shoot. In addition to the two lens bundle (18-55 and 55-200 lenses) be sure to buy at least one fixed prime lens with a wide open aperture. The 35mm 1.8 for $200 is the one I recommend for most new users. It is a good walkaround street photographer lens. Great for indoor dark restaurants, put it on the restaurant table across from you and your group - probably wide enough lens for 2 or 3 or 4 of your group depending on the distance from the camera and you. Use "portrait mode" and the camera will take a great picture with the background automatically "softened". Use "A" on the dial for Aperture Priority with the f number low like 1.8 or 2.8 or 3.5 and you get to dial in how much background softness you want. Or simply turn the dial to Guide Mode and follow the directions. You will love the Nikon D3300!

Re: Camera for beginners

Nikon J5 - - you will love the automation features especially the touchscreen focus and shutter release. Just touch the screen and the camera focuses on the person / subject / area you touch. And voilla the picture is taken. This feature is liked by new photographers AND experienced photographers who use it to more easily compose their shots... and of course... you can always focus and shoot using the regular controls.

Re: Camera for beginners

sony cybershot slr camera is best option if u r a starter in photography, all the modes will be in just one rotating button, easy to change modes and unlike dslr's there is no need to manually focus all the time.
