First DSLR


For me the technical bobbins you can learn to live with. The first decision is does the camera 'feel' good in your hand, you need to use this lump of metal / plastic a LOT if you are going to improve and get the best out of it. It HAS to be something you LOVE the feel of, you want to have it in your hands all the time. Whilst brand and the techy gizmos are less important (but nice to have in some cases) it does not sound like you need to worry over at this stage - your needs will change as you develop.

The Nikon / Canon systems are vast and their kit gets abused every hour of the day by pros all over the world - they are popular because they work - and if you want to play with some 'fancy glass' over the weekend or for a holiday you can hire pretty much anything from Friday to Monday for the price of a single days hire.

Good luck its not easy spending hard earned cash on your first bit of kit and just hoping you are going to like it.
