Hi there, when I decided to take up photography a bit more serious than being a "snapper", I did not want to break the bank, just in case it being a fluke, and got myself a Bridge (Samsung WB5000).
Now, although this sort of does the trick, I start realizing it is not a fluke, and I might need something more "beefy".
Having some "spare time" yesterday, prior to a client-visit, I stepped into a camera-shop, and asked for advice, on what to go for.
The first thing he did was slag off my camera, which boded well for the rest of the conversation , and then he told me this was not because of the camera, but because of the brand, since Samsung was not a camera-manufacturer.
Then he told me I had 4 options, Canon and Nikon, or Pentax and Olympus, which were all true-bloods. Phew, what a relief, because a Canon or Nikon were first on my list, because everyone recommends them .... aaarggggh, so wrong. He then told me to forget about them, and advised the following:
The support for these recommendations (and in this order) was because they had features available that with Canon and Nikon would cost more money, and the lens choices would be a lot more versatile and cheaper.
- Pentax Kx
- Olympus E-620
What do you think, and more importantly, recommend??
