Hi all, I've only just discovered wetpixel, and it sees full of good topics/discussions & loads of quality photos. I'm a relative newbie to the photography lark, although have been getting quite good shots with my current Fuji finepix Z100fd. I now wish to step up a level & invest in my 1st DSLR (preferably a Nikon). I've been thinking about the D3100 or the D3200 since these are aimed at the newbies like me. I'm into my critters so will mainly be shooting in macro, although I would also like it to incorporate a video function. As well as wanting it primarily for an underwater camera, I also like taking architectural & landscape photos. Any help/advise in regards to which model would best suit my needs would be appreciated. Regards,Dean
Hi all, My name is Dean & I've just discovered wetpixel, which seems to full of helpful advise and plenty of stunning photos. I'm a novice in the underwater photography lark, but have been quite successful in the past using my Fuji finepix Z100fd (digi) although I now wish to step up a level & invest in my 1st DSLR. I rather fancy a Nikon, but am not sure which model will best suit my needs. I'm rather into my critters so will probably be shooting macro most of the time, although I would also like it to incorporate a video function. I have been considering the D3100 & the D3200 purely because they're aimed at newbies like me, although I'm always open to advise if you think there's a different model that will suit my needs better. I look forward to your help & advise.
