Cool cheers, will probably go for the mk1

Anyone got any suggestions for an entry level dslr? Need one for holidays etc but haven't a clue where to start. Quite happy to buy used too if it keeps the cost down

I started with a Canon 550D & found it a great entry level camera, can be got cheap enough 2nd hand or any of the following ones 600D/650D etc would be along the same lines

Thanks guys

That was nikon d7100 with 16-85mm lens

Just flogged it and bought a d750 with the 24-70mm lens which is frigging insane how sharp it is

Will post some of my tokyo pics later on taken with it

Do you shoot in RAW or JPEG? If the former then Lightroom is better than Photoshop in my opinion.

Cool photos. Cool

You rate the D750? I've got the D600, but like the look of the AF of your camera.

Never done courses, but worth doing a search for 'high pass filter photoshop' to find out a very underused technique for sharper images.

my gf sold her d600 to get the d750 lot less noise on high iso

The d750 out does most cameras on snap review it's a good camera but the lens makes so much diff

She was using the 16-35mm lens I got the 24-70mm and them she bought it whislt in tokyo the f2.8 gives such sharper pics it's an amazing lens
