What was your first camera?
I didn’t choose it, it chose me. One night I fell into a troubled sleep. When I woke up I was in a forest clearing, surrounding by cameras half set into rocky outcrops. I went around and pulled on each camera in turn but the only one that came free was my fabled and trusty Nikon D50.
The true story is much more bland and goes like this…
Me: What kind of camera should I buy as a beginner?
Guy at the Camera Store: Well the Nikon D50 and the Canon Rebel are about the same in terms of performance and quality, but the Nikon is $100 cheaper.
