Some of you probably don't stray into the degen part of Blonde too often, thus will not be aware of my current challenge (http://blondepoker.com/forum/index.php?topic=57248.msg1539658#new
) Cliffs of which are trying to spin up the buy in for an upgrade on my current camera which is a (http://www.reevoo.com/p/samsung-p1000
The original plan was to get one of these: http://www.whichonehowmuch.co.uk/pr-2696107/pc-29/c-17/photography/digital-cameras/canon-eos-600d
, simply because my friend has one and the pics he takes look great.
Obv 'my friend has one' isn't the best reason to purchase a camera so now i am beginning to do some research, where else better to go than here? I am fully aware that simply by typing out this post I have put a massive bok on my whole challenge. But hey ho, its done now.
New to Photography
Like wildlife/nature shots
Like close up shops
Like to edit photos but this doesn't need to be done in camera
Good with technology/overly convoluted gadgets
Camera to fit purpose: This is where i need the help, Dob't really know any of the following:
Low end DLSR/Compact/Bridge?
Type of zooms/Lenses?
I did a test on the website and told it basically what i wanted and to my surprise it suggested my friend's camera: Canon EOS 600D or the Nikon D3100
Anyone got any thoughts?
