My girlfriend and I are planning on buying a nice DSLR pretty soon here. Our budget is anywhere around the $400-$500 range, and we’re looking for something nice that has a wide array of features. Preferably one that uses SD cards as external memory, HD video capability, and has a decent shutter speed for the occasional night shots.
To give you a bit of insight, I was looking at the Canon SX50 HS 12 and fell in love with it because of the LED screen, and it’s massive zoom feature along with the ability to record in HD (1920 x 1080). I just don’t want to go with the first camera I see. (Not to mention, it was brought to my attention that it’s not a DSLR. See how much of a noob I am?)
As far as brands go, I prefer Canon but I’m open to any and all recommendations!
Please send me a message with the type of camera you use, what you’d recommend and why and maybe even some sample photos!
