sounds good man!
hint on what will happen?
Lotta tidying up
mmmh will be nizzle
i might have a few new things coming in the build next month too, so stay tuned haha
I'm already tuned
I have a small quick question - is the Olympus E-330 Is it a good camera? How much would you pay for it?
Here's a link to the specs.
I'm not very knowledgeable on 'professional' cameras. Never owned one.
My guess is that this Olympus is old?
How much do you think it is worth today? In $ or € ?
Straight answer to your question: I wouldn't buy that camera, because its rather old (2006) and its harder to find lenses for Olympus (not that much harder though)
Normally, I would stick to either Nikon or Canon, they are by far the largest ones and its easier to find lenses and things like that for them. However, smaller ones like Sony, Pentax and Olympus cannot be written off easily. Please do bear in mind that the lenses are worth more than the body itself, and it will last far longer than the body, hence people stick with one particular brand. I have been trying to look for a "budget" DSLR, and came out with the Canon EOS550D (Rebel T2i for Americans) and the Nikon D90 if that's any help.
Thing is the seller (who is someone I know personally) is asking only €150 for it....
could i become a member if ijust love taking photo's? I have no highend equipment but do love photography?
what lens, mem card etc is there with it?
I got no idea about the lens
I seen the camera, powered it on, appears to work 'fine' (lol), looks in good condition.
It's got no mem card, I have to buy one.
Otherwise everything seems there, charger, battery and spare battery.
I'm a total n00b as I said.
take a few shots with it, and see how the overall quality is.
as Fourstaff said, Nikon and Canon is preffered, how much does a used 450d/1000d cost where you live? used...-
While I have no idea on the specifics of that camera, I want to know whether or not you plan on getting into photography or simply taking casual photos here and there. Since you're a member of TPU, I have a feeling it's the former. If so, I would recommend looking elsewhere.
I got lucky back when Bing cashback was high for eBay and got my old setup worth about $1400 retail for a hair under $850. IMO, it would be best to buy a cheap body and lens from either Nikon or Canon and then if and or when you decide to upgrade, you have a lot more options without having to start all over or spend more because there are less out there second hand.
Sure thing! Added. Have a favorite photo or two to bring to the party?
Its actually very hard to recommend whether to buy or not. for €150, you can get yourself a nice compact which is *almost* as powerful as the E-300. (Almost because DSLR have more tricks and their lens are far superior)
Will you be happy with that purchase? Many times I hear people buying a low end body and complained that they should have gone for a better body. If you get sucked into this photography madness, you will end up cursing your wasted €150, if not then that €150 is well spent for a good camera. Can you please check the lens too?
ive got a few yea ill dig them out and share em with ya, thanks
Looking forward to them!
