Newbie to this forum/newbie to DSLR/Advice help
Good moring and hello to All,.

I have been looker on this forum for 2 months and today I decided to join this forum. So please forgive me if I say something wrong. I've been researched on the internet for a while and reading all the topics on this forum (i spend almost 2 weeks to read all topics in here and I really respect peoples here with your knowledge) and your suggestions. I went to department store to try all dslr camera and features. I love all of them and don't know which one is the right one for mine needs. Please help me to pick the right one, cause i'm newbie with dslr.

Budget would be less than 1k. And here are my questions:.

1. Which is the right camera for me as I mention above?.

2. If I do need the second lense, which one should I need?.

3. Do I need the external light? if so, which is should be?.

4. Last but not least, sounds stupid to you, what's the different between regular SD card and SD Extreme III, II or Ultra???.

Thanks again for your help and everything..

Have a nice day and great weekend.

All of the entry-level DSLRs are excellent cameras. The differences between them are nuances that would only matter to certain photographers. The chances are excellent that you will love whichever one you buy..

That said, is there a reason that you're considering a DSLR rather than a digicam? The subjects that you listed seem to be the sort of things that people routinely photograph with digicams every day..

Oh, and welcome to the forums. By the way, the "" line in the posting is to separate the text from your signature. So normally you would only put the "don" after the "" line. The stuff before "" can be searched by the site's search engine, while the stuff afterward isn't searchable because many people like to list their equipment. (No, this isn't written anywhere so you didn't somehow overlook reading it.)..

1. Which is the right camera for me as I mention above?.

Any entry level DSLR will more than meet your needs..

2. If I do need the second lense, which one should I need?.

A lens covering a focal length range of 18-55mm or 18-70mm (about 14-40/60 on an Olympus) will cover all your requirements except sports..

For outdoor sports that goes to 200mm or 300mm (150/225 on an Olympus) should be adequate, depending on the sport. Lenses for indoor sports are much more difficult (i.e. expensive). If indoor sports are really important to you, you will need to increase your budget..

3. Do I need the external light? if so, which is should be?.

The DSLR will have an on-board flash which will be reasonable for close indoor or nightime shots. An external flash that has a twist and tilt head will give much better results, but you don't have to get that straight away..

4. Last but not least, sounds stupid to you, what's the differentbetween regular SD card and SD Extreme III, II or Ultra???.

Speed at which data can be written to/from the card. Buy the cheap ones to start with..

Since I have never owned either camera (although I do have a Canon DSLR) I cannot advise you..

Go into a camera store, look at the prices, try them both out and decide which one fits your hand best. The Canon has a higher spec but also a higher price.Chris R..

If one day you wish to become a Professional Photographer (earn most of your money from camera work) then it would be beneficial to buy either Canon or Nikon. This is because those two brands have the big majority of the pro market, and you will not need to change systems along the road..

If it is for recreational use - without specialisation into sports - then you can be confidently assured that ANY entry level DSLR will be satisfactory. You are in the very fortunate position of being able to buy the one that feels most comfortable in YOUR hands..

To avoid the need of a second lens, the most useful kit lens will be one that spans 28mm to 105 mm in terms of 35mm camera. So Sony Alpha with Image stabilsation and 18-70 lens (= 28 to 105) will be OK as would a Nikon with 18-70 (best kit lens). Olympus 420 with 14-42 (=18-84 with 2x crop factor) not quite so good range but probably enough. With the others that offer 18-55 (=28-78) lens, then you will almost certainly discover that you require an additional telephoto lens..
