View Full Version : Buying a new camera

16-06-13, 09:26 PM

I am looking to buy my first descent camera. I am a complete newbie so not sure what to go for. My original thought was a DSLR but when looking more in to it I decided it wouldn't be convenient as I want to be able to take it on holiday and snowboarding. I'm now thinking more down the compact system camera route and was first drawn to the Nikon 1 v2 due to the simplicity and compact design but after talking to a few people I'm now looking at the Sony NEX 5r, my only concern is the lack of view finder and as 90% of the photography I will be doing will be outside, I fear using the screen will be a pain.

Any views on this?
