Woo, finally have some money to play with. Probably shouldn't be spending a few hundred on a camera but I think I have enough reasons. 1. I want some decent pics of Buster 2. This is a beautiful part of the country, it displays all four seasons beautifully. 3. I have my cousins wedding in 4 weeks and am going to see most of my family, some of which I havn't seen in 4 years + and I want to take some pictures. 4. Christmas coming up, I want some family shots 5. Just after new years I'm probably going to go up and see mum, I can get some pics of their horses and the dogs to bring back with me. Especially Sophie, I don't think she has a long time left and I want to have a go at capturing her. So thats me justifying it.. plus I've wanted a good camera for like 2 years so I'm just gonna get myself one. Still, I probably don't want to be spending more than $800 tops and would prefer something closer to $500 but I dunno if thats going to happen. I was just looking at Nikon D60's on Ebay and it seems to be generally around $770. There are a couple for considerably less but they have a few days left to bid so they'll likley go up. I'm gonna ask for your guys help on this because I'm really a total beginner and I just don't want to walk into a shop and end up buying something I regret later. I'll want to be taking mostly outdoors animal shots, so probably a fair bit of action. But I also want to capture the landscape around the area. These are a couple I was looking at. 1.
