I haven't had a camera for years. I spend inordinately long periods of time outside walking (well, limping) watching birds, and fishing.I'd love to be able to take photos half as good as those, and seeing as ,in winter especially, it's generally too cold for sketching(at which I'm crap anyway), it'd add a different dimension.
I don't have a lot of cash, or a darkroom,or any talent at anything whatsoever.
What would anyone suggest,and how much? ( apart from f**k off and die, we'll take that as read).
Have you got a camera on your mobile, Tenners?
Some of them these days (granted on expensive phones) are better than many actual cameras.
A cheapISH one I've just looked up is a Canon PowerShot SX620 HS @ £145
I realise that might still be expensive.
The higher the megapixels, the higher the price but the better the quality of the definition. That really shows up if you enlarge & print. The above is 20.2 mps, which is blooming good. My phone only has 3.2!
