I recommend you try a search or even look in the first 1-2 pages of the newbies section, as someone with your exact same question asks the same question every single day.

Hello alvinleo, a warm welcome to you!
Actually your question is truly a general one, and if I may say, a difficult one to answer. Don't take offence, it is just like: "I am really hungry. Can you tell me what to eat?"
The senior members are very gentle and kind to remind you to use the 'Search' function to read through and derive an answer that is suitable for yourself.
Try it!
I have learned a lot myself by simply doing that.

Once again, good to have you!

:thumbsup: for this advice...!
Newbies, though NEW, should learn to be a little bit self-resourceful...
Otherwise the entire newbies section gets flooded with "please recommend me a camera" threads, and newbies with genuine queries might get ignored in the process. Sigh...

I agree wholly on "I am really hungry. Can you tell me what to eat?" :D

How can it be the same? After eating chicken rice for this round, when you get hungry again, you get to choose Hokkien prawn mee. But when you buy a DSLR, you're on a journey to buy the whole system. Most people do not have money to burn, and buy cameras of different brands whenever we are 'hungry'.

First post and you fail to understand a simile with a pinch of irony ... anyway, Welcome to CS.
Soon you'll see that such generic questions as posted by the thread starter (short: TS) will not serve anything. It's to broad and leaves too much possible answers which in return will not help.

Most important is the definition of "affordable". Some people have trouble to fork out $12,000 while others can easily spend $1,500 - you get the idea? ;) After the budget is set let's add some more to cover the necessary side-items like batteries, memory cards, cleaning kit, dry box / dry cabinet. Then TS can have a look at the Buy&Sell section here to get a first idea what cameras could fit the budget. After shortlisting a few and reading reviews about the brands and models he could go to some shops to get in touch with the cams. Each brand has its own Look & Feel. And: each of the brands has cameras capable of taking decent pictures. No point asking "C or N, which is better?"
If there are still questions open TS can post them here - but after some reading and learning these questions might be much more specific and will get him specific answers.
