Was at the camera club last night for the Annual Cups awards. Got an unbelievable 20/20 for all 3 digital images. Obviously have to tell somebody.

The first is 'Metrosexual' which was taken with an iPhone. The other two are 'Caledonian Isles' and 'Killing Machine'.

The dinky wee trophy looks like this:

Have started to really enjoy the simple art of taking photos.  What's a decent reliable camera that doesn't cost an arm or a leg?  

This was taken on my Huawei Mate 10 Pro from the Top of the Rock looking down towards the Empire State.

Probably better to state your budget first, then @Stevo Fife will be in with the Nikon suggestions and me with the Canon :lol: 

But the market is crammed so there are no poor cameras. Sony make some real winners  these days, and for holidays I carry a Panasonic Lumix compact which is excellent for about £250. I'm selling a Canon 6D at the moment but it's body only and probably not what you're after as an entry level camera. You have permission to pass the word around though :lol:

Well done. Looks like you got the Sigma pretty much spot on for the Osprey shot;)

To be honest, most entry level camera's are good enough, most of my improvements have come from having better lenses on rather than moving up the scale (I will contradict that by saying as I mainly shot sports,I did find the need to move up a few levels to get something that had better auto-focusing and shots more FPS, but it was very specific to my needs)

Nikon and Cannon are still the 2 big hitters with a wide range of lenses from 3rd partys along with their own, Sony sometimes suffers from a smaller range of lenses to chose from, however Sony seem to be beating the 2 major brands when it comes to the new mirrorless cameras (although I've not kept up with it over the last year or so.) 

2nd hand is the way to go though, and if possible see  if you have an independent camera store nearby, they will most likely have a second hand range and you can actually get to see how it feels, then go with the one that feels comfortable, you'll be (hopefully) using it a lot.
