Complete newbie, need first camera advice, Help!!
Apr 23, 2014

Hi all,

I am going on a holiday to Bora Bora in one months time. I have worked very hard in nearly every aspect of my life to achieve this holiday - and I need a camera to capture the moments I have there.

But I am ABSOLUTELY CLUELESS to what camera to buy, or rent. I only really need it for this trip, but I guess I have no choice but to buy one. The only camera I currently have is my iPhone 5S camera.

I need the camera to take crystal clear portraits/shots of myself and my friends (photos below as quality example). That is the main need for it.

My budget is around $800AUD new/second-hand, including the 'lens' (no idea).

Can anyone recommend me a DSLR that can achieve this. I have attached a few photos from my friend's modelling portfolio (yes, I have permission!), I need a camera that can achieve this style/quality of photo.

Thank you.
