Beginners tip for the small purse


Everyone knows that the photo equipment is not cheap.

But it does not necessarily always have to be the newest and it may also be needed if things are alright. Decisive is the optics in relation to the triggering.

If a DSLR has already over 30-40,000 releases and the body seems almost as new, you can assume that it was ever to overhaul by the manufacturer.

The fewer shots and cleaner the body the better. Basically, if a DSLR has around 10 MPX for normal use, it will be completely like the one of e.g. with a Nikon D200 is the case. If already something clever here is recommended by Nikon the semi professional line so D100, -D200, -D300 and the D300s.

I would not take the D100 but it has enough pixels but with enlarged image sections, one quickly reaches the limit if one assumes a good quality of the images.

From D300, the whole story is a bit more expensive. A good choice here is the D200. In good used condition you should be able to get it for 100 - 150 euros without lens. I myself have finally bought for my godchild one for 90 euros. (As of 10/2018).

The D200 comes as I said from the semi prof. Line from Nikon that means magnesium casing and water protected. Also it can open the old rod drive for the old AF lenses yet what the world to cheap old used AF lenses. I'm talking about AF lenses without a built-in AF drive.




If I assume you want to first scan something in all areas comes then always on it only lens 18-200 VR in question. That's enough for a start and not so expensive. Of course, third-party vendors like Tamron are also working. Personally, I prefer the org. Nikon lens a Tamron 18-270 VC ago. Used is the Nikon Nikkor AF-S DX VR 18-200mm F / 3.5-5.6 G IF-ED about 230 euros. (As of 10/2018)




Now I come to another DSLR camera. You should not forget them here.
It is the Fujifilm Fine Pix S5 Pro with 12.3 MP. It's a Nikon D200 case but it has a slightly different electronics and another image sensor. With this sensor it is superior to the Nikon D200 in terms of indoor and portrait. This camera is still popular with photo enthusiasts today. The good thing about the camera is that it has a Nikon F-mount that means all F lenses can be attached to the camera. Whether Nikon or third party. Check it out and google Fine Pix 5s Pro vs. Nikon D200. You will be amazed.

Since the camera is still quite in demand because of their Senso fantasy prices are often required for so from 300 euros. but with the sum I'm already in the range of a D300s and that is the Fine Pix 5s Pro superior. You should get them around 200 euros that would be an adequate price. (As of 10.2018)




All in all, you should be able to get quite a good beginner equipment consisting of camera and lens in a price range between 400 and 500 euros. For comparison, the current Nikon D500 is about 1600 euros only the body.

In order to take this proof now I have searched out some old pictures. They were all created with a Nikon D70s in collaboration with a Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f / 2.8E FL ED VR lens at open aperture so 2.8. Take a look at the corresponding Zoo Slider in my blog (here a new window with the Zooslider will be opened). The old D70s has only 6 MP, a used Nikon D200, however, with 10.2 MP almost double the megapixels. For the fun and also for the first photo works this is enough on a tight budget.
