Hello, I'm taking film classes and I want to also branch out into photography, but don't even know where to start when looking for a good camera and what brand is the best, etc. My sister has a Nikon but my friend has a Canon and both say they are great blahh blah but that doesnt help me! I don't have a particular subject I'll be photographing I just want a good camera, not too big so I can carry it around and also one that will last awhile. Another point to note is that I am very clumsy and tend to break things easily especially on nature walks. Any input and advice is appreciated! Thank you!
