New Camera - Please Help

Alonfridman
Hi friends,



I want to get a new camera (It's time!) and i think i will go for Nikon. The big question is which model is suitable for high quality performances and specially for dreamstime stock.



I have searched and found several models of their cameras:

D90

D5000

D3000

P100



i'll would like to get your opinion for this models. I'll be grateful for your help.



Thanks,

Alon

Hi Alon,



I`m using the D5000 and very happy with it. It`s the same picture quality as D90, because they have the same chip inside (also the D300). The D90 is bigger, heavier and have more functions. The D5000 have a movable display, if this is importand.

I recently got the D3000. Seems to be a very fine camera. Hope you like your choice and good shooting.

Certainly I personally would opt for the Nikon D90, you can find at an attractive price or a good used, including the D3000 is a good spot as photo suggests you Dan!

Hi, maybe you'll find this useful.

If you want to start shooting stock seriously, the camera, once you decided to go for a dslr, is not the main issue. We all know that entry level dslr's perform excellent, both nikon and canon at least (it's a matter of personal choice between them anyway). It is the lens that matter.

So, as most of us are on a tight budget, i recommend that you take that factor in consideration when you plan your gear investments. The body may come and go, but the lens is more likely to stay, for obvious reasons that i'm not going into right now.

Remember, the DSLR camera really is nothing without good glass. You must set your priorities starting with the lens, because, usually you'll find various promotions and rebates on cameras, less so on lenses. For stock, the best lens both optically and in terms of frequence of use is the 50mm prime. Aside that, tighter spaces, more dynamic shots require a wide angle lens, and portraits a tele. So, you'll need basically 3 types of focal lenghts, and you know good lenses don't come cheap.

In light of these, i'd recommend you to go for the smaller, newer and cheaper, the d3000. It's cheaper, lighter and easier to upgrade.

I agree. Although I don't know what kind of lenses the OP has, the fact that he's still choosing a system leads me to believe he can't have much of a lens collection yet. You need to build that before thinking of upgrading bodies.

So wise.. I agree. Alhough personaly I would prefer D90 (seems to be so nice camera with great ergonomy) I would go for less bulky system as I travel a lot (D5000 or D3000)
