My first DSLR camera. What should it be?
I have been doing some research on DSLR cameras. There are lots of good choices.
Many years ago I had a Canon AE-1. I really enjoyed the camera, but after watching it sit unused on a shelf for several years I sold it at a garage sale. Now I want to get back into it.
There are several people at work who are Nikon fans so I started there first. But I keep coming back to the Canon.
Someone showed me this interesting set of statistics. Flickr Camera Finder It looks like Canon is one of the more popular cameras. The trouble is that once you start with one brand you are kind of stuck with it. So I want to make the right choice.
One thing I really want to do is some HDR photography. So, I would need a camera that does auto bracketing.
After lots of comparing and discussions with friends who have DSLRs, I leaning toward the Canon XS. I'm thinking that I will save a bit of money on the body and then throw a bit more cash at a better lens. I have my eye on the EF-S 18-200. It is a bit pricey, but those who have one say that if they could only have one lens, then this would be the one.
