My father was a professional photographer and he passed away last year. Today my step mother gave me one of his cameras, which is a D1X with a AF-S Nikkor 18-70mm lens. I would like to pursue becoming a professional photographer in the future, or at least a more serious amateur or part-time professional. So far I have only owned point and shoot cameras and have not taken the time YET to learn the technical side of photography. All I know is I LOVE TAKING PHOTOS. So, my question is: Should I keep the D1X and learn how to use it or should I sell it and buy a newer model? Would it be a good enough camera to eventually shoot weddings and portraits, or should I invest in something else? And what about the lense? I'm going to start educating myself on photography in general, but I don't want to spend the time learning to use this camera if it's not going to be good enough to use more seriously in the future. Any advice is much appreciated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
