Aloha to everyone from Hawaii, I am pretty much new to photography or I should say I want to start atleast taking photos :lmao:. I have had some camera's in the past and really enjoyed taking photos while I was a teen. The first real photos i took was with my Dad's Camera which was a Minolta dx570 35mm. I really loved the clarity and true to life images that this camera produced. I then tried to get into the digital thing and a few years back I purchased a Fuji FinePix S5100. It was the biggest piece of junk I have ever used. Unfortunately it is still the only real camera I have used since. I majority of the time end up just using a cell phone and pretty much hate that lol. I am not sure as to why I have not purchased a new Digital Camera but perhaps it was for the bad experience I had with my first one. Now... Since I have moved to hawaii and the wife and I have started to visit places, I really want to start capturing the wonderful things we encounter. However, I just cant bring myself to buy a point and shoot as they just dont do it for me. I really want to start shooting nature scenes as we have beautiful cliffs, Ocean scenes, and well pretty much everything lol. I also want ot be able to take shots of non stationary people enjoying themselves surfing hang gliding, hiking, and ariel photos would be great as I took my first flight lesson. Anywho, thats my story and I hope to find some good information on which Camera to buy soon lol. So far I am leaning to a DSLR or I may just go back to a 35mm I dunno just yet.
