Topics I've Started

Starting Out

07 March 2013 - 06:28 AM

I've been reading for a while, and going over the reviews section of this site for some time.

I have always been interested in photography but never really had the means (apart from the old $99 sanyo camera from years ago).
I have recently decided I'd like to turn this into more of an active hobby, working at skill over a period of time.

Trying to decide now though, is something like the Canon Powershot SX240HS ok as a starter camera? Whilst I learn all of the basics that is?
Or should I be looking at a more advanced camera?

I don't want to be buying AA batteries all the time, so would prefer a camera with inbuilt battery hence why the above appeals.

I'd appreciate any and all advice re camera selection - brands to avoid or to follow, features that are/aren't important etc.

thanking you in advance.
