Need Digital Camera Information

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I have this in this category so more people would see it. I mostly use my camera for airplane events and family events. I am a "hobby photographer" and like to use the "auto" setting. Don't really care or want to learn what the "f's" are all about.

I had a Canon sure shot for years and it finally bit the dust and no more parts available.

What do you recommend and why? I looked at the GoPro info but can only find retailers that sell accessories not the camera.

All help and input is appreciated. I am ready to buy now.

Re: Need Digital Camera Information

If you're thinking about a DSLR & lens for air shows read my thread on Aviation Photography (in this section of the forum) or you'll get less than great results even though the camera can yield great results. If you're thinking P & S what is your price range. It's really not hard to learn how to get out of Auto & in many cases Auto is the worst setting the camera offers.

If you do want to make the move up to a DSLR, give Nikon's repair centre a call as they have refurbished stuff available all the time. Double-check your pricing as some of it is a bargain and others not but you get some lightly used stuff with a 6 month warranty for Kijiji prices in a lot of cases.

Nikon Canada Inc.
1366 Aerowood Drive
Mississauga, ON L4W 1C1
Service & Support 1-877-534-9910 (ask for Shelley)

They ship Canada-wide. I think it was about $12 for what I shipped last time.
Current models: Hobbico Nexstar Electric, Parkzone Spitfire Mk IX , several micros/small helis. Nothing nitro/gas.
