Hi

Firstly Admin apologies if this is posted in the wrong place(if so would you plese be kind enough to put it where it should be).


OK to business,

I need recommendations for a new DSLR camera suitable for taking photos underground (I normally light paint), also good for taking photos of fast jets, and general surface exploring. I have a budget of £1000 for the body and kit lens possibly £1100 for an ace.(I do expect to have to buy a decent zoom seperate).

I currently use a Nikon D70 for general work, and a Canon G9 (1st gen) for underground work.

Any suggestions, help, or advice greatly appreciated.

Thank you

I use the Fuji xt10 which is the older brother to the 20 with a 14 and 35mm prime lens. And I love it so much. They are such a fun camera. The new xt30 is due out very soon. And it looks very good too. Mirrorless seems to be the way a lot of people are going nowadays

Yeah I'm a total fuji fan, they are just great cameras. The Len's are also very good, but aren't cheap. The 10-24mm Fujinon is £800!

Hi

Thanks Gromr, and Mikeymutt for the suggestions, got to admit I hadn’t that about Fuji, but am off to do my homework.
