View Full Version : Can't Decide

Hi everyone,

I finally have enough money to treat myself to my first DSLR. Now rather than go entry level and in 6 months decide I want to upgrade, I've decided to go mid range.

My budget just extends to the Sony A77, EOS 60d and the D7000.

Now I like the Sony A77, but as photography is something I want to develop in, not a career as such, but do a bit of actual paid work eventually, I don'[t want to be let down by the A77, but I do really like it.

Any advice, would be great,

The simple answer is to shoot with something you enjoy using.

The Sony A77 is a super tool read about it here (http://www.photographyblog.com/reviews/sony_a77_review/)

If you've not used a DSLR before then have a read of this...
Beginners DSLR, CSC, Bridge or Compact tutorial to get you on the right track!
Just got a new DSLR, CSC, Bridge or compact? Then take a look at Canons basic tutorials and learn how to use your camera.
This applies to all makes of camera, but you can skip to part 2 when you've seen enough.

In Part 2 you will learn how to get the most out of your photography and find out about ISO, Exposure, Depth of Field, Aperture priority, Shutter priority etc in picture form

And don't forget. Post processing is an important part of photography and should be used to sharpen and enhance pictures taken with your camera. If you don't have an imaging editor, then use the one in my signature below. There are 32 video tutorials-Clicky (http://ictpublish.com/pixlr/) to get you started. The most useful is the Adjusting levels-Clicky (http://ictpublish.com/pixlr/Videoes/06_Levels/06_Levels.html) and for even more adjustment. The Curves tool-Clicky (http://ictpublish.com/pixlr/Videoes/07_Curves/07_Curves.html) is a must (it's my favourite all-in-one adjuster). My Resize-Crop-Sharpen tutorial below, will get your pics ready for the internet or whatever :cool:
