It was a year ago that the idea had stuck into my mind to get a new camera. I did a bit of search and research, I asked friends but in the end, as I had not thought about the whole project … professionally, I dropped the idea.
..until 15 days ago. I decided that if I needed to bring my blog and photography skills to another level, after all a camera is still THE only efficient thing that one can use to capture life – video consumes too much space and experience recording (as I had read it in a British Telecom white paper about 10 years ago) is still in blue sky research level, a new camera seemed the only wise thing to invest in.
I was surprised that within a week of proper evaluation process I managed, courtesy of simple criteria I had set, to nail down to just one option of a camera I would purchase. That was Nikon D3200.
I wanted an entry level DSLR around 400 Euros. I wanted something of an established name in the market (Canon, Nikon), a model that is relatively new and takes also good photographs outdoors and sceneries and primarily something that I could (and would) keep for the next 10 years.
Last Saturday i bought it. The experimentation time has started!
