Hi all,I'm interested in learning more about photography & taking more pictures and am looking to get my first camera. I've done lots of searching, reading, research etc. and think I have narrowed it down a little. I'm looking to get something that will certainly be better than a cell phone camera as that's all I currently have. I don't think I want a point & shoot, at least not a basic one. I don't know a whole lot yet but would like to learn so I am looking for a camera that I won't outgrow...

Also, the field of view of that particular lens was a bit too narrow.I have an RX1 on order as I think it will provide...
I have a Nikon D5100 and was wondering if there is a way to take a picture from a video. I have a Sony video camera that when i watch back the video i can pause it where ever i want and zoom in or out and then take a picture of that image. Can the same be done with the D5100 as i can seem to find how to do it.
