I'd like to buy a digital camera too. There are a lot of mariages and other things coming up in our family and maybe it's time for something decent. I've never taken many pictures with the old cheap family camera but I did learn in school
about photography and how to work with a reflex camera.
Would the D40 be a good idea for an amateur/wannabe like me or should I go for a cheap Sony Cybershot with a Carl Zeiss lens?
Once again I'm going to sing the praises of my FZ18 - I mean, it was £200 and it's pretty damn good for the money.
18x Optically stabalized lens
So many picture modes you'll never use them, and they're flexible so you don't get sterile images with them.
I love it
I've got a Camera post on my blog somewhere.. I'll grab 't link for you, give me a minute.
