I'm based in Sydney and have been pondering about buying my first DSLR for the past few years as I have always enjoyed photography (very cliche I know!)
I would like a few brief pointers on how to start out (keep in short for me, I won't understand all the jargon.
1) Canon or Nikon?
I'm currently considering the Canon EOS 60D as might first purchase, as I have a few friends who started out with this camera and have given nothing but praise. I have heard Nikon have relatively good mid-range SLR's, what is the equivalent model for Nikon? Has anyone had experience using both? What are the pros and cons and what woiuld you choose?
Would you recommend buying the standard kit lens and waiting until I work out the types of photography I join and buying lenses to match? If so, what are some affordable but well recommended general/everyday lenses?
Does everyone use photoshop? or is there free software out there that I can download that can assist with editing?
Thoughts, suggestions, opinions, recommendations welcome
