I’ve always used a basic compact camera but I’ve been thinking lately that I’d really like to get more involved and learn about the technical aspects of photography more. My basic idea is to get an “OK” DSLR and play about with it for a bit before taking a course at a local college in January. If I do well with that then I might think about getting a better than OK camera.

Trouble is, I don’t know enough about cameras to choose. I know a few of you are photography geeks so could people discuss/recommend a starter camera for me? Also, do I need to get extra lenses or is the basic one it comes with generally considered sufficient? And what the hell are filters all about? Any further advice would be good too. 🙂

These are some shots I took while on holiday recently.
