I've been reading and watching review after review, comparisons, pros + cons etc ... I'm desperate for a dslr, I've been using a bridge cam [fuji s1000fd] since last summer. I bought it to get to grips with simple manual controls, and now I feel I've out-grown it. Time to move on.
I really enjoy Gordon's reviews [must have watched 100s by now!] as he doesn't BS, just gets to the point.
I've been searching the used cam sites, as I cannot afford to buy new [would dearly love a D90] as I'm out of work through injury [had an operation last year]. I hope some day to make a few bob out of this photography lark, but happy for now to just pursue it as a hobby. it gets me out and about
I lost out on a Sony A200 recently, which saddened me, as I'd been reading up on it for weeks and watching the clips over and over. In the end, the seller got impatient with me because I was desperately trying to come up with the funds and hold him off until I had enough.
Since I've put my Xbox up for sale [a sacrifice I'm willing to make for a new camera] - I have had an offer for trade on an Olympus E410 [xbox [plus cash for it]
It's an outdated cam by today's standards but would you recommend it for a first dslr? for someone used to a bridge cam? Is it faster, better quality, better range of options etc ...
I know this is an old thread, but it's my first post and wasn't sure where to stick it
