I am thinking of buying something new, just to branch out a little. I've thought it out, and here's what I'm most interested in: A polarizing filter - I've never had any kind of filter before and I hear these are good for landscapes and for wet days. A nd filter - mainly, I just want to get that smooth water look in the daytime too, since I live by lake huron. You know, where the waves look like fog? I can do it at night, but to do it in the day requires a shutterspeed that makes the whole picture white. Same with little creeks and waterfalls. There are a few of those by my place too. A wide angle lens - I'm interested in what they can do. I think I could have some fun with one. A new camera - am I outgrowing my camera? I'd wait a long time, a year or two, before purcahsing one just to make sure that I want to stick with this photography thing. Here's my problems. About the filters, it would be difficult to find a way to mount one of the better brands on my camera. Should I bother buying a cheaper one that for sure fits? Wide angle lens problem - there are conversion wide angles lenses for my sony, but I hear that they are expensive for what they are. New camera problem - I can't tell if I'm actual outgrowing my camera, mostly I am still happy with it but it's limitations are growing more frustrating to me. If I did start saving for a new camera, the one I went with would be an entry level DSLR. I like the feel of the canon rebel types and I've handled some of the nikon d 60 types and I like those too. However, people outgrow photography all the time. Maybe this time next year I wont give a hoot about such things. That's why I would wait up to a year or two to make such a purchase, hopefully I would know better by then. But if I DID start saving for such a camera, would it be worth my money to buy either of the filters, or a wide angle? The ones I would get probably wouldnt work with a new camera, so I wouldnt be able to use them. If I sold my sony it wouldnt be a problem because I could sell any accessories as well, but if I kept it I'd keep them too, I think. But how much camera equipment does one with a simple photography hobby need? Of course, I could do what I've been doing and go back and forth and not spend anything ever. I'm hoping someone here can give me an outsiders perspective.
