Question by Annuh: Cameras / Photography ?
I’ve had a Canon Powershot SD600 For a couple years now and it takes pretty good pictures;
But I want to get into photography as a career so I was thinking about getting a better camera.
So do you have any suggestions?
And if you could tell me how much the kind you suggest generally is that would be great =)
Also it would be great if you could let me know the price range for tripods 🙂

Well if you want to get into photography professionally I suggest that you first take some photography classes. Being a professional photographer involves much more than buying a good camera.
That said pros use 35mm SLR’s, Digital SLR’s, Medium format cameras and large format cameras.
These camera cost thousands of dollars. Below is a list of a few cameras and their costs.
Canon 1DS MKIII $ 8,000.00
Nikon D3 $ 5,000.00
Hasselblad H3 $ 34,000.00
These prices are for the body only. You will also have to spend thousands more on lenses, flashes and other equipment.
If you are just getting started I would look at an entry level DSLR from Canon and Nikon.
Check out the following cameras.
Canon Rebel XT, XTi or XSi
Nikon D40, D40x or D60
These will cost between $ 500 and $ 1,000 with a lens.
What do you think? Answer below!
