My Dad’s a great photographer and since my childhood days photography has always interested me. Whenever I saw my dad shooting an image all I thought was how easy it is. Just see through the scope, make sure the light along with the focus is correct and take a snap. But later I realized that it’s not even 1% of it.
While I was an apprentice under my dad, I used a entry level Sony Camera to learn the basics of photography. The first few lessons were tough to grasp but as time went by, I learned more and more about photography.
Today, I have reached a milestone where I need to move on to a Digital SLR camera to excel even more in photography. I’m looking into the Nikon D800 priced at $2,900.00, but if you aren’t quite ready to move that advanced, the Sony Alpha NEX-5N tagged for $439.00 is worth checking out.
Sony Alpha is a DSLR an entry level photographer should opt for. The camera is easy to handle and does not have hardcore settings. If you are moving in from a decent entry level high-end camera, you will feel at home with Sony Alpha. The camera comes with a touchscreen display to comfort the users.
But as I was looking for a camera for long term investment with all the hardcoded settings, I thought of going with Nikon D800. Although the camera may be little obsolete in looks and extremely high in prices when compared to Sony Alpha, it’s power packed with lots of advanced features you will need for your professional photographer training.
Thanks to eBay, I got a fair price tags on all the items and detail description for my research. Both the items are available at an amazing price on eBay and if you are planning to buy a camera, I would highly recommend it. So now that the camera is sorted out, I am thinking to buy a Samsung Galaxy S III as well. But you can always suggest me and let me know of a better Android smartphone.
