    Hey,

    the wonderful world of photography is calling me! I'm about to turn 21, and up to now point and click has done me, however my father owed a lot of hasselblad cameras and some of the photos he has taken have really shocked me at how different things can be when you try!

    So a brief low down on what i have recently bought.

    Casio P600 camera

    http://www.exilim.co.uk/exilimpro/exp600/

    i bought this as the 700 seems VERY similar and is £379 however the 600 is now discontinued so i managed to pick it up for the massive sum of £199. I realise its not up with the SLR's of the world, but i don't think i could do one justice and being a poor student means i really haven't got money to be throwing round!

    So your thoughts on my new camera? honesty would be nice, as I've read many reviews, some are good others are not, i liked the amount of manual tweaks you get with this model and the fact you could add different lenses (tele, wide macro) and filters, it really set it apart from the basic point and click stuff you tend to get for that money!!

    Thanks

    Chris

    Welcome to TPF! :D

    You might want to re-post some of this in the general Q&A section to make sure it gets more views and, hopefully, informative answers. We have a great membership with lots of experienced folks.

    Your dad's Hassy collection will be the envy of many, I'm sure. ;)

    I'm sorry to hear about your father. :)

    Wow! He certainly had some fabulous equipment. That sounds like an awesome collection that will have several members here :drool: You need to find the "Collector's Corner" forum here, because trust me - any questions you have about any of these cameras or equipment will be answered.

    You've inherited some beautiful stuff; don't be afraid of it - learn how to use it and do your dad proud. :thumbup:

    The only things to be scared of when using Hasselblad:

    1. dust in the camera/lens
    2. water in the camera/lens
    3. taking off the lens before you cock the shutter (don't ever try it or you'll jam the lens)

    Rest is easy, put some 120 film in it and shoot away!
