Hey guys im keen on getting a new, more advanced camera. For the last year I've been using a canon powershot A430. Its been good but theres a few things I really don't like about it. :thumbdown:-The main thing is the (is it shutter speed?) time it takes to take photos. I like taking pictures of skateboarding and the snap time is crucial cause if its a split second to late the picture looks crap, or i miss the trick and on the powershot on the highest speed it still takes its god damn time. :thumbdown:-Other main things i dont like is the look of it. I know i shuldn't judge on looks but the hole thing makes me embarssed to take pictures with when i see other people flopping out their cameras then i pull out mine with the blue lined front haha. Heres the thing i do like about it :thumbup:-Great super macro (Ill try upload some pictures with this to show the capablity) Anyway! I'm thinking about purchasing a new camera on boxing day, seeing as there will be sales and I would of gotten paid for my new job and hopefully would of got some money from christmas What do you recommend? I want the next step up camera if you know what i mean. More intermediate to Advanced camera. But not toooo pricy. Some of the cameras i was looking at made my bank account feel tiny And also (this may be a really stupid question seeing as most of my photos suck) but how to you go about making money of shots you have?Can you sell them or do you go about them getting published or something? Just out of curiostity Or should i just stick with the powershot A430 and get over the little negatives about it and buy myself a much needed car? Any advice, any tips, anything would be much appritated!
