mmmmmh, I waited for them comments. :mocking:

I will be downgrading for now and see how it goes.

After my last trip I got tired of swapping lenses and finding space for a big camera.

I had enough time to sit next to a camp fire and wonder why am I taking photographs.
Do I want to print posters for bill boards or do I just want to add my pics to my web site and share it with some friends? I used to be a keen photographer but I think that changed, I now do it more for the fun and less serious, it is a "been there, done that" thing.

I know, every now and then one get that extra nice pic which you want to have enlarged, but the biggest I did was one meter long pictures, so I will not be taking bill board shots anyway.

I downgraded to a "bridge" camera and so far I tend to use it more often than my Nikon.
I don't like things laying around being unused so I decided to let the Nikon go.

If at some stage I feel I preferred my big camera, I will just buy one again (or maybe a Canon)

Pieter I am of the opinion that a decent bridge is more than what 98% of users need.

And you always have the right lens ready ....

Pieter, Kinda went through the same BEFORE buying, did not want billboard sized prints but I wanted to be able to get decent prints if I wanted to.

Spoken to a friend who does photo shoots to get ins & outs, Canon vs Nikon , VR lenses vs VX etc.
We settled on the Nikon D3200 which can take pics as good as any bigger model (Only real experts will know the difs); Makro ran a special in 2013 where bought the camera with 2 VR lenses for R8999 which included the training course. The one lens alone I priced at a camera shop and was quoted R14 000 :shock2:

The facilitator of the training echoed the sentiments of my friend, and by all reviews the D3200 has more professional range features than just a bridge cam.I agree with Chris, if those are VR lenses keep them, but it looks like they aren't Nikon lenses, so if that's the case rather let them go.

So bottom line as always, shop/ask around, and the training is crucial, otherwise you will take better pics with your phone....

Got this now
http://www.fujifilm.com/products/digita" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; ... inepix_s1/

I like the Fujifilm because my very first digital camera was (and still is) a S7000
It takes incredibly sharp pictures.

The S1 is far better than the 8 year old S7000.

50x Optical Zoom = 1200mm lens and it has all the stabilization features, etc for if you are shaky on that distance.
I can still do manual exposures, which I still prefer.
Can now take from 28mm to 1200mm pics with one small camera.

The whole camera sells for less than what I paid for my cheapest Tamron lens.
