As good as any. The fact that the controls are direct (aperture ring on lens, speed dial on top, ev comp easy to access and wysiwyg viewfinder) makes it quite a good learning tool I would say.

Very little reconfiguration needed.

Re: Learn Photography

The camera you have is more than adequate to learn with. Suggest you stay with it and maybe decide if you need more is 6 or so months.

I suggest you seek out a local camera club. Many provide mentor sessions for newbies.

There are no clubs here that I know off. Is there anything on the internet or elsewhere?

Re: Learn Photography

my first 'real' camera was the nex3. i was impressed with the sensor/imaging. however, i quickly realized i would never learn the basics of photography with a camera that was designed for point and shoot.

got a used x100 and with the full manual, analog controls plus optical viewfinder i felt i was on the ground floor of photography and the sky was the limit.

1 1/2 years later i am still a rank amateur, but have a much more comprehensive grasp of aperture, shutter speed, iso etc. as well as a bunch of photos i'm really happy with.

"Understanding Exposure" by Bryan Peterson is a great learning tool.
