Right guys,

Starting to get into photography so I've bought a Fujifilm FinePix S4300 Bridge camera to get me going. I couldn't afford a DSLR just now, but my dad has one I plan on stealing when he's not looking :D

Was away on holiday last week and was in Greenwich park so took a few shots of some random things I saw.
Haven't done any post photo processing on them as my desktop is in bits at the mo, so take that into account and give me any feedback you have.

Cheers

Paul

The next few were some Aston Martins that were at an owners day in the Naval College grounds so were quick snaps as I was waiting for a boat :D

Look, even Astons get rust ;)

Went for a wander round the Cutty Sark too.

Thank you please :thumbsup:

Cool piccy's fella :)

To be honest a bridge camera is a good place to start, I sell them and they do take a good pic 8-)

All depends what you want the camera for. If it's a daily point and shoot, a bridge camera or even a modern compact camera, or camera phone are more than good enough for that.

I started with a bridge camera, even photographed a wedding with one once (was very hard work with it), I found it's limits very quickly though and it didn't meet the requirements I needed, so naturally I moved up to a DSLR. Only got a 550D with a few lenses, and it's not even a full frame camera - which will only make sense if you know about cameras, but it does the jobs I need, for now. There are a few things that make me want a full frame camera, but the cost if the biggest issue.

As the saying goes, the best camera is the one you have with you.

Yeah Danny, it's just a point and shoot but I wanted something with a reasonable lens and high optical zoom. And with the zoom needed something my shovel hands could hold steady so bridge it was. And at £120 I couldn't complain!

I know what you mean about the limits, it is obvious even to me that as a point and shoot its fine but for anything more its not the tool to have.
My mum has a few SLRs and DSLRs so have grown up with them and quite fancy th freed they give. Like you, wont be a full frame as that is silly money for my use. But will give me that extra control.

That's a DB4, not 5!

Not been round the Sark since it's latest refurbishment. Looking good!

From the moment I picked up your book until I laid it down, I was convulsed with laughter. Some day I intend reading it.
