    Rather invest on the lens.

    I cant say i totally has no interest in photography.
    Photography can reli help a lot in terms of concept and for design

    As for the types of sports.
    Mayb sports like skating.
    More interested in macros.
    Mayb sometimes some night landscape, nature kinda landscape.

    The image taken is not jus a reference
    I might have to require to add in some layers, filters and stuff on the image.
    Its part of the work, not reli purely a ref for drawing.
    Have you ever laid your hands on a DSLR to try it out for real?
    How did you find it? Was it what you're looking for in a camera...?
    Things like this will offer clues about what camera model you should look for.
    Exploring! :)

    from your reply it seems you forgot to include a very important feature for you - convenience

    Woudl recommend borrow a camera from your friend for few hours and get a feel, DSLRs are not as handy as the pnS (thats why they are called PnS )

    Go through this page for better understanding http://digital-photography-school.co...digital-camera

    almost whatever you will hear in reply to yoru thread would have been covered in this page

    Once you are convinced then decide on budget, then the brand and then the model and then the lens... after that you can start pulling your hair from the choices and decisions...LOL, just kidding here...you are the best judge of your situation, just convince yourself what you want PnS or DSLR

    I looking for a better image quality
    Allow me to shoot in different type of landscape.
    Higher shutter speed to capture those fast movements

    Haven reli tried very long on dslr.
    Have take pic with it before.
    I dun have chance to get hold of a dslr to test out.
    I am not exactly rushing to get a dslr.
    I m giving myself to find friends who own dslr for me to try.

    btw I dun mind the weight and convinence

    Hi Retard, must do more homework before buying a DSLR
    DSLR is abt the whole system, not only lens like wat ur frd tells u

    Check diff brand of camera 's model's capabilities & range of lens, flash they can offer
    DSLR is not film SLR, body 's sensor plays a great part in DSLR

    Dear TS,

    I think a lot of people here is concern on the statement where the focus is not photography. To be frank, it's a rather negative statement and many is really realy wworried that you had invest and later figure out that it is not something that you sign up for. Though the investment is not theirs and mind you that if you do decide to give up, alot will benefit as you'll probably be putting your gear up for sale. Point is, people here do not want to see this to happen. Do take the time to make sure that DSLR makes sense for you as you'll be lugging around something rather bulky and heavy compared to PnS. If this is a factor, you should just stick to something more compact. Else, DSLR will be a great tool for your work.

    Hi 'Retard'.
    Your "requirements" are very general, and pretty much any decent camera can satisfy them. My old superzoom, the Panasonic FZ-10, could probably meet your criteria too.
    It had a shutter speed range from bulb to 1/2000s.

    The ability to use a high shutter speed is partly dependant on available light. In a bright environment (eg. on a football field in mid-day), a point-and-shoot could achieve a high shutter speed as well.
