© Williamardrey (Help) I'm looking to upgrade my digital SLR to a more professional model. I have looked at some cameras online and like (on paper) the Sony alpha A850, and some of the Nikon cameras. I would like suggestions as to what would be a good camera to possess for my future in professional photography. I don't want to spend too much for it, but I am willing to spend between the range of $1000 to $3500.

Any suggestions?

You probably should decide if you want a full frame or cropped sensor. I was never happy with my cropped sensor--I had noise and other issues. I just moved up to the D800, and couldn't be happier. It is a lot of camera, but the D700 has been around awhile, so while it is also a great camera, the technology is a bit older. So you should probably research the differences and see what works for you, if you decide to go Nikon and not for a cropped sensor.

Nikon D700 or D800 full frame would be my choice. I am on my second D700 After 2 years I sold the first and bought another D700.

Thanks for the tip. It looks like the camera may be in my price range too!

New equipment

posted on 10th of july, 2012

I have finally decided to invest in better equipment, and today I went out to Best Buy and bought the Nikon D7000 SLR camera that seems to produce better quality images than my Olympus E-510 does. I have been playing with it and the controls don't seem that difficult. The camera also has a double and triple exposure feature that I may use in a photo shoot or two. I have a few ideas how I can make that work. I'm anxious to get started...by the way, if anybody wants to buy a used Olympus E-510 and two excellent lenses I purchased for it not too long ago, I will be glad to negotiate. The lenses together cost me around $1300.00 and the zoom lens is practically like new.

I upgraded to the D7000 last year after almost 6 years using a D80. All in all, I love it.
If you are interested, please take a look at my blog post:
Lessons learned with my D7000 which describes some of the things I learned that I like and don't like so much while using it on a month-long trip to South Africa and Lesotho.
Good luck, but most important, have fun!
