Hey guys, I used to be kind of an amateur photographer back in the day Was used to shoot with 2 cameras (both borrowed from friends): Fuji X100 and a Canon 600D with 18-85, 70-300 and 50mm. Now I'm planning on getting myself a camera for christmas, since I miss being that amateur photographer and I only have my iphone for teh pics However I really need some help picking a camera: I don't have a big budget. I haven't even decided if I want to get a DSLR, or an advanced compact, or even a mirrorless. Let's say I have around 500 to 600 (at least that's my initial budget). If I went for DSLR/Mirrorless I'll have to spare money to get more lenses later in my life. About my types of photography: Street photography, travel photography, arquitecture photograpy, portraits, fashion photography... that's it I guess. Sooo.... I really like the Fujifilm X20. However I don't know if it's worth the money. I can get it for something like 400 to 500. I like the idea of having a smaller camera like the X20. That would mean I could take it everywhere with me, which means being always ready for a photo in every location. If I'm getting a DSLR, for example, that would make it different. I can't carry a DSLR everyday. I don't consider cameras like the NEX-5 or the RX100, because I demand a viewfinder. When it comes to DSLR's, the models I consider are the cheapest (but the body is the least important thing I guess): Canon 1100D, Canon 600D, Canon 100D, Nikon D3100, Nikon D3200, Nikon D5100... Most of them are bundled with a 18-55 IS or VR lens. I would rather go for a bundle with a 18-105 VR or 18-135 IS lens, since I actually don't see myself using longer distance... To sum up, I would say that when it comes to DSLR's, a 1-100'ds and a 50mm or 35mme would make a good starter kit. At last... Mirrorless, or hybrid cameras. I like the Fuji's collection: However they all run out of my budget apart from X-M1, X-A1... But they don't have viewfinders. And lenses are usually a lot more expensive. You can see how messy my head is about the camera picking situation Would really apreciate some help!
