I'm looking to purchase a camera. I have searched the threads and have come up with more questions than answers. Let me say that I have been a member for a while and don't think I could find a better place to get recomendations. Let me start by giving you the basis for comments.
My wife and I are a working couple that have the basic understanding of photography. I'm looking for an upper end camera that i can buy a good starter package complete, ready to go, out of the box. While we read and learn the finer points I want to set it up to point and shoot for my wife as she has less experience than I. Not saying that I'm any whiz. As we get more into it I want to be able to upgrade lens, etc. This will be our "retirement" camera.
Photoghaphs taken will be family stuff. Weddings, get togethers, etc and also outdoors, hunting, fishing, camping, traveling. Close ups to the Aurora. I'm not looking to become a professional, just extremely proficient.
Thanks for your comments.
