Beginner Camera?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Basically, I'm wanting to get in to photography BUT I don't have much money to spare. For christmas my parents are thinking of getting me a new camera (Instead of this pos Sanyo x1220 and Kodak m1033 I have been using)

I started off by looking at some decent compact cameras such as the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ8

Reason being is that I want to have the highest optical zoom with the best image quality at the cheapest price. My parents are willing to spend up to £200 on a camera and if I found one that exceeded this price point I offered to pay the rest.

After more searching I found the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ45 and DMC-FZ100. I read reviews and decided that the FZ100 would be the better choice, it has options and settings that "I" think are what I need.

What I'm wanting feature wise is:

High optical zoom *above 12x, preferably 24x like the FZ100*
Good quality photo's taken at higher ISO speeds (~1600 for action shots)
Atleast 720p Recording in AVCHD
Doesn't have to have a high resolution sensor (10 - 14MP is fine)
Needs to be able to store in RAW format

erm... Not sure of what else, I'm still a complete noob with photography, but hey... I'm learning

But I'm needing a second opinion, are there any other cameras around the same price point as the FZ100 (about £289 I found that was the cheapest), but have better specs and/or better overall picture quality? I'm looking in to shooting almost anything from Night shots and low light to high speed "sport" shots.

If I had the extra funds then yes, I would go for an interchangeable lens class camera. But for now I will only stick to a "megazoom" camera such as the FZ100.

Okay, I've increased by budget slightly, I can now afford either a Nikon D3000 DSLR or the Canon EOS 1100D.

Any recommendations? I'm leaning more towards the pricier 1100D at teh moment

I just got the 1100D and I love it. You definitely cant go wrong there and I have some good success with the kit lens. Everything in my sig was taken with it with the exception of the 9/11 memorial (I did not have it then )

Awesome! Really nice quality in the photos

I know what I'll be ordering then, the 1100D also has more features that I would take advantage of too

It's a good camera. Irks me a fair bit that it doesn't have an automatic sensor cleaning system like most DSLRs do, but with 720p video and good image quality for the price, eh, no need to complain.

Don't forget to pick up SD cards for it as well, and a spare battery wouldn't hurt either.

Indeed, is a shame about the cleaning system, although I do already have a rocket blower that I use for cleaning computer hardware and such soo that will do

And yes, I will be stocking up on high speed SD cards and an extra battery or two. Can't wait to start getting in to photography. Been wanting to for a while now and this crappy sanyo digital camera I have can't do anything

EDIT:

Okay now, I've just been told the 1000D is better...?

Based on what metric?

For the money, the 1000D is cheaper, and unless you need the video settings or higher resolution I'd rather go this path to save money. Maybe put the price difference to a 50mm f/1.8.

But as far as "better" goes, price point aside I'm drawing a blank here.

Thing is, Video is pretty much a must nowa days (Well, it is around where I am, so much stuff going on)

1100D it is, then I'll start saving for a new lens
