SLR camera advice?

    Hai folks,

    I was wondering if anyone could offer advice on SLRs (bodies and lenses) to make a good kit for an Anon activist. I'm seeking to buy Canon, probably, as I'm most familiar with their UIs, have a Canon speedlite flash etc. - but I haven't touched SLR since the pre-digital days. (Advice on cameras/lenses to steer clear of also welcome.) I'm vaguely aware of the half frame/full frame issue with digital SLR, and how that will influence lens selection.

    I have a Lumix. I got it when they first came out ('02). I don't know how they are now, but I haven't been impressed with mine and wouldn't recommend it unless they've cleaned up a lot of bugs. It's pretty much just a doorstop now and I've gone back to point-n-clicks...less bits to fall off...

    Don't ask me. I buy cameras a couple years off the mark at a discount warehouse. I'm happy with my Canon PowerShot 590IS for photos and video. If I bought more camera than that, I'd have to learn to use it on more than the idiot setting.

    Which reminds me, you can hack some Canon cameras.

    Anon above you^^^ ...That's the same camera I have now! We've had it since '08 or so. We got it to replace the testy Lumix and it works freaking great. Very simple, but with some cool features. I know someone else who swears by theirs as well. Don't know if it's true for all canons, but I would recommend that model.

    Sure, here are some pieces of advice for SLR camera:
    Determine your budget: SLR cameras come in a wide range of prices, so it's important to determine how much you're willing to spend before making a purchase.
    Decide on the type of photography you'll be doing: Different SLR cameras are better suited for different types of photography, so consider what you'll be using the camera for most often (e.g. portraits, landscapes, sports, etc.) and choose a camera that has the features that will help you capture those types of shots.
    Consider the camera's sensor size: A larger sensor size typically means better image quality, so if image quality is a top priority for you, look for a camera with a larger sensor size.
    Look for a camera with interchangeable lenses: One of the major advantages of SLR cameras is the ability to swap lenses, which can greatly expand the types of shots you can capture. Look for a camera that has a wide selection of compatible lenses available.
    Consider the camera's autofocus system: If you'll be shooting fast-moving subjects (e.g. sports or wildlife), look for a camera with a fast and accurate autofocus system.
    Check the camera's ISO range: ISO determines the camera's sensitivity to light, so if you'll be shooting in low-light conditions, look for a camera with a wide ISO range to ensure good image quality.
    Look for a camera with good image stabilization: Image stabilization can help reduce blur caused by camera shake, which is especially important if you'll be shooting handheld or in low-light conditions.
    Read reviews and try before you buy: Before making a final decision, read reviews from other photographers and try the camera out in person if possible to ensure that it feels comfortable to use and has the features you need.
