Dear fellow bros/sis,
I will be very free until December where I'll be enlisting for National Service and I will be traveling around the world for the next few months.
I'll be backpacking to Europe for a month (Brussels/Paris/London/Scotland) and most probably be going to Japan or Beijing for a month too :/
Therefore this explains my thread here.
1. What kind of Digital SLR camera do you recommend?
I am contemplating between Nikon J1/V1 / Samsung NX / and Sony NEX series. There are just too many cameras to choose from and I just need a camera that best suit my needs.
I've got a Sony A230 DSLR lying inside my cupboard collecting dusts :/ (Anyone knows where to trade-in or something?)
*Oh yes, I really need a portable camera because I couldn't stand that A230 being bulky *
My budget is to the limit of SGSD$1300. I know nuts about lenses except those numbers that tell how much zoom it offers and stuff (correct me if I'm wrong)
2. While reading some threads here, some suggested going to the airport to buy the camera? Will it be much cheaper there?
3. I am very 'up-to-date' in the sense, I am looking for a camera that will last long (in terms of features) and can last over the years without being obsolete. As in, I can just keep on buying lenses (assuming I got the hang of photography) w/o worrying about the body.
4. Lastly, do you guys recommend me to do photography (over the next few months + for the travel trips itself) because I'll be enlisting for National Service soon :/ And being the only child in the family, no one really take lots of photos (except my chihuahua )
Looking forward to your kind responses!
