 Post subject: what camera to choose?
PostPosted: Thu Nov 01, 2007 4:30 pm 
Hi, this is my first post.

after having a good look at mosts of the reviews on the cameralbs website I am about 100% sure about buying a DSLR.

but being a novice at DSLR camera's I don't really know which one to go for,

I would like a camera with which I would be able to expand, flash, lenzes,

and maybe (after a long while) change body.

Hi Alex,

A warm welcome to the CameraLabs forums.

If you have already read Gordon's best buys then I guess your next step is to try and decide what sort of photography interests you most. Family and holiday photography, of course, but do any of the photography tips forums provoke a desire to try your hand. Let us know a bit more about what you hope to do and a rough idea of the budget and and I am sure the forum members will rally round with lots of good advice.


Sony RX1R II. Olympus OM-D E-M1 + M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm f/2.8, M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm f/2.8 + 1.4x T/C, Lumix 7-14mm f/4, Leica DG Summilux 15mm f/1.7 ASPH, M.Zuiko Digital 45mm 1:1.8
M.Zuiko Digital ED 75mm 1:1.8, Leica D Vario-Elmar 14mm-150mm f/3.5 - f/5.6 ASPH.
OM-D E-M5, H-PS14042E, Gitzo GT1541T, Arca-Swiss Z1 DP ball-head.

I would like to spend between 800 and 1000 euro.
that is about the price you would pay for a bugdet DLSR camera kit with a 18-55 lens and a 55-200 (for example). at most of the stores over here

I use my current point and shoot camera to shoot photo's of architecture, sports, boats, nature/ travelling, family and friends. and that is what I would like to be shooting with a DSLR

I thought I would tell you that I have narrowed my choice down to two camera's, the nikon D40x and the Olympus E-510,
Olympus has started with a 100 euro cashback on the E-510 so that is very tempting, but I am still worried about the possibility to upgrade from the E-510
