Buying your first SLR..
Written by: Tiffany Joyce
Most of you may know that I myself am buying my very own dSLR for the first time, and hence have been doing a whole lot of research on the topic. My research ended with this article I came across a day or two ago.
In the article Vandit Kalia says “In this article, I’ve tried to find a fine balance between being objective and yet offering enough opinions to actually reach a conclusion that is a little more helpful that “they are all good”. Valid though that assertion is, I think in hindsight that this is quite frustrating to someone looking for advice.” …
Further he gives some solid to-the-point advice covering everything from which brand to how many megapixels to some rather ignored but important aspects to consider when choosing a camera. He explains everything in just the right amount of detail, in a way that actually informs the person rather than confuse them further. Towards the end, he goes ahead and gives some straight forward recommendations based on whether you’re just looking for better pictures than your p&s, are a serious hobbyist who wants to explore further, or are looking for a camera for specialized needs. And finally he ends with some useful straightforward tips that will help you seal the deal on your cam.
I recommend you go through the article even if you’re not buying a camera yet. I’m sure you’ll enjoy the read simply because it is interesting, informative and a fun read too! You can read the article here: Buying Your First SLR
