    Hello,

    I am looking to buy DSLR but bit confused which one to buy because of lots of options being available in the market.

    Here I would like to add that I like taking photos of my family and kids at home (including portraits), indoor photography, family trips to another city or country (holidays) , day outs, school functions, kids sports, friends get-together etc.

    I would love to take blurred background pictures which is my favorite part.

    I am less bothered about capturing videos, I just like taking photos.

    I am not much into wild photography, architecture, etc.

    Should I buy DSLR Camera and Lens in one go instead of buying them separately?

    I am thinking of buy eitehr Nikon 18-105mm or 18-200mm lens. Not sure which lens to buy! and would that be worth to buy these zoomed lens keeping in view my above photography priorities! Or should I go for prime lens?
    And also not sure which camera body to buy?

    My budget is approx. $1200  (£750).

    Thank you in advance for your time and comments.

  4. If you decide to go for DSLR why? Simply because you want the best picture quality but DSLR is a tool it will not take pictures by itself better than point & shoot it just gives you full control to create so first of first learn photography & now this is very easy in the presence of internet & YouTube photography is not chemistry or biology actually it's very easy to learn the basics so all what is remaining is practice then set your budget then divide that budget by two with half of that budget get the best body you can afford then with the second half get the best lens for that body within your money then you are good to go

  5. Mate you knocked common sense into me! I am so confused because my phone takes better pictures than my digital camera (you guys call it "point and shoot" i think) and I want a camera that has more clarity in it (less noise) hence was thinking about DSLR cameras but I ain't a photographer… So confused :/
    Can i get some help anyone? 

  6. ok, so Liked the Video mostly because of what you have said in the first 2 min :) 

  7. That was great thank you!

  8. I want to get into photography (learning how to use cameras well and get amazing videos/photos, and call myself a photographer). I would be using it for all kinds of pictures, using it as my only camera, as well as recording video for use with video editing/youtube videos. My budget is about under 500 us dollars. I am a beginner with photography, I don't know much about ISO settings and aperature settings and shutter settings, etc, but I want to learn about all that. I have found the Nikon D3200 (after looking at a bunch of other dslr's, such as the Nikon D5100, the Canon Rebel T3, etc). It looks like it has everything that I need, full 1080p, 30 fps video recording, 24 megapixels which is usefull because I won't feel like I need to upgrade in a year, all the professional camera settings (ISO, shutter speed, aperature). I have read countless reviews on it, almost all of them are very positive. My only worry is that I invest in this 500 dollar camera, and then once I start getting into photography, I realize that the camera doesn't have what I need/want. Please give me advice, recommendations, assurance, anything to help!

  9. I used to use a canon film slr camera and I had lenses that would also go on a canon DSLR camera.  When I went digital,  I had no idea that my photography skills would so through the roof.  When I started using a Canon DSLR, I saw my Photography skills going the roof.  I also started doing more videos and a DSLR was the way for me to go.  I found myself doing video and I needed the AF during video shooting so I went to a higher power DSLR that has the AF During Video mode and I have used it ever since.  I do intend turning it into a profession very soon.  I do not intend for a full frame DSLR in the near future due to cost.

  10. Very good advice. 

  11. What kind of lens did you use to shoot this/?

  12. You are the man.  Probably the only person who is rational enough to say, "don't buy it, you probably don't need it."  DSLRs are definitely luxury, hobby items.  If you want to take good picks on a trip.  Almost any $50-$150 camera will suffice for great quality photos.  Anything more leans towards the artistic side of photography and the need for perfection.

  13. Great, simple, down to Earth information for the beginner selecting their first camera. Thanks for sharing. 

  14. What did u record this on?

  15. if you dudes require to get ripped more quickly without spending a single extra minute in the gym, then you really want to look at this online video SIXPP.COM

    that so few now dare to be eccentric marks the chief danger of our time

  16. I'm currently looking for my first DSLR, and I've narrowed it down to the Nikon D3200 or the Nikon D5100. Now I'm stuck. Can't decide. I've read so many different things, I'm thinking 24mp is pointless but it has the newest technology etc.

  17. You're very down to earth, practical and really easy to watch. Thanks for this tutorial, man.

    I think that's my starting budget to though. Like he said start from the bottom and work your way up. Learn that camera then work your way up to the next. There is no shame in $100. No great person woke up being great, they had to start somewhere ….

  19. Sunstar Moonandearth

    YES! I love this. YES. Common sense but it helped a lot.

  20. Thank u
