I am wanting to buy a new camera, and thought I would start looking for advice here! My main uses would be for view/lanscapes/seascapes/sunsets and close up photographs of plants/wildflowers. There would also be some use for people - particularly the Grandbaby, and wildlife so a good zoom is also important. At the moment I have a fairly basic Sony digital, which has taken some good pictures, but fails on very close up flowers and does not have as wide an angle veiw, or close a zoom as I would prefer, and I would like a viewfinder as well as the preview screen. I think that I could get a digital SLR that would suit my needs, but this would be both expensive and heavy. Does anyone have any suggestions or links to possible sites/forums which could guide me? I feel sure that there is a camera out there, made for me, but it is where to begin............. Also any magazines that would help?
