Buying my first Digital SLR
Ok, so I want to take the plunge and make the investment in a digital SLR. I currently own a Canon PowerShot SD500. It’s great for stow-and-go but obviously doesn’t give me the photographic quality, versatility, and control over the photos I want to take. My preferences in photography are landscapes, travel/outdoor, night/low light and that occasional action/sport shot. Given the plethora of makes, models, and options on the market, how do I select a camera to fit my preferences in photography? I own a 35 mm but for the most part it sits in the closet gathering dust as film is so expensive to develop. While it might sound silly, I’d rather spend the money getting an entry level SLR then waste money developing film experimenting with photography. I’d appreciate any suggestions in equipment that will make photography fun without leaving me wondering if I make the right investment.
