I'm after a bit of advice!
I might be purchasing a new camera soon, and want some advice from those of you who know about such things :-) I'm still very much learning about DSLR cameras, so forgive me if the specs below seem a little basic.
Main gripes about my current camera [an Olympus SP-500UZ] are the speed of the auto-focus, no practicable manual focus and image quality can be a bit naff [and that's not all down to me :-)!!].
My basic requirements/features needed are:
10+ mega pixels [essential]
Fast auto-focus and manual focus option [essential]
5-6 frames per second capability [optional]
Interchangable lenses [essential]
Well-known/ respected brand [preferred]
My budget is under NZD$2000 [approximately USD$1000], so I know that it's not going to be super flash [entry level DSLRs are available for around NZD$900]! Oh yeah, I must be able to purchase and get support in New Zealand. Any suggestions about a particular camera? Even a particular brand? What's good about it, not so good? Other features I should consider?
Please leave a message, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks in advance!
