Welcome to the new camera equipment thread, it's currently being updated as we go along, please give suggestions on how it can be improved. Before we can begin it's important to know it's better to improve your technique in photography rather than buying a new camera which won't get you that far without learning the fundamentals to get the most out of your camera, the more you practice and shoot the better your shots will get
A wise quote:
"which camera takes the best photos?"
"The one in the best photographer’s hands at the moment."
If you are going to ask for camera recommendations it would be a good idea to copy this section and write your responses to help people in the thread chose the camera for you:
1. What is your budget budget?
2. Main purpose of the camera?
3. What form factor is most appealing to you?
4. Will you be investing in the camera? (buying more stuff for it later)
5. Any cameras you've used before or liked?
