i'm very new to clubsnap and 'proper' photography, so please give me some pointers!
have always used a simple digital point-and-shoot and wish to improve on my shots. step 1 - go ahead and buy a decent camera...
here's where i really need advice
1. i would like to bring my camera everywhere i go (if possible), so the size must not be too bulky.
2. must have manual options - possible to do long exposure photography?
3. my main subjects: the vast skies and scenery (panoramic or widescreen shots?), old and modern buildings, people, food!
4. budget < $900 (hopefully inclusive of memory card + lens if required)
based on these, what would be the ideal camera?
i have shortlisted: Canon G9 - if i get this set and add a teleconverter, or the wide converter, would i be able to achieve decent panoramic shots? Lumix DMC LX 3, or should i wait for the Nikon P6000 or Canon G10?
thanks for being so patient and reading this long post.. please, please advise this newbie!!
