What camera?

Postby Ryd3rHunTRFishR » Wed Jan 30, 2013 6:47 am

Looking to get a new camera. I shoot mainly hunting and fishing and I know I need a quick shutter speed for waterfowl. I want some of those amazing shots that I can't do with my current camera. I think I will need a really good zoom lens as well for those waterfowl shots. Any suggestions? I would like to spend less and $1000 but I may spend more just depending. Camera needs to have interchangeable lens.

What do you guys think?

You can get a camera body for $1000 that will work great, but you need to increase your budget by 3-4x for the lenses you'll need.
There are countless threads here asking the same thing, do a little searching :)

These were taken this morning with a Nikon D5100. I don't know what you are looking for exactly in quality, but this is well under the numbers quoted about. The lens is a lens that came in a package deal. 55-200 mm Nikon DX lens 4.0-5.6 F stop. Nothing special in the camera world. I bought the package with two lenses from Sam's club for around $720. I didn't downsize the pictures enough so you may need to click in the images to see the whole picture.

These pictures are unedited other than cropping.

I currently use the Cannon SX 40 HS Powershot http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/cameras/digital_cameras/powershot_sx40_hs I love this camera has amazing zoom, crystal clear 1080i video, pictures all around it was worth every penny. I made alot of videos with the SX40 check out my youtube page on my sig to see the vid's . My father liked the camera so much he went out and bought the new SX 50 hs powershot last week. It's affordable, compact, and has all & more the features you will need for any type of photography not to mention the excellent reviews/consumer reports. Check it out you won't be disappointed. :thumbsup:

I just got a used Nikon D300 for $350. Haven't been able to use it a whole lot just yet but I did take a couple shots posted in another thread.

The Canon EOS 50D is equipped with a new 15.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor, measuring 22.3x14.9mm. It generates 3:2 aspect ratio images with a maximum resolution of 4752x3168 pixels, which gives it 864 more pixels horizontally and 576 pixels vertically than the EOS 40D; at 300 dpi, this allows the 50D’s images to be printed at 15.8x10.5in to the 40D’s 13x8.6in. The 12.2 Megapixel EOS 450D / XSi falls roughly in-between the two.
Canon 50D - quality The 50D’s JPEGs can be recorded at two lower resolutions (8 and 3.7 Megapixels) and with the choice of Fine or Normal compression. RAW files are of course offered, although unusually again in the choice of three resolutions: either the full 15.1 Megapixels, 7.1 Megapixels in SRAW1 mode or 3.8 Megapixels in the new SRAW2 mode.
Cleverly the RAW and JPEG options can be set separately, allowing you to choose any combination. So if recording both JPEG and RAW, you could have RAW, SRAW1 or SRAW2, accompanied by a JPEG at any of the three resolutions or two compression settings. Best quality Large Fine JPEGS typically measure between 5 and 8MB each, while full-size RAW files measure 17 to 25MB each.
