    Hi,
    I'm looking for a camera for my sister and I found the sony alpha 3000. It's right on my budget. She used to own an old agfa on film, but it's done. Would it be a good choice, as she hates the digital camera's images? Thanks

    My tip is don't ask what kind of camera or lenses should you buy. If you do you will get a bunch of answers but in the end they don't help you make the decision at all. These types of questions are best answred by you yourself.

    So, let me start as you ordered:

    1. Budget: very low, actually no more than 40-50 euros per month (12 month time) so that makes it 400-500 euro camera

    2. I do not own any type of camera, 100% new to this colourful path

    3. Having a "pro" camera that will give me space to learn and improve, use it for at least couple of years. The main priority is taking photos of kids and family, nature while out on trips. Nothing too crazy, at least not for some time now.

    4. Never help pro camera in my hand.

    5. I did research on camera that I found fitting and affordable, and that was Sony A5000. Thoughts are 50/50. It is hard to judge from a perspective where buying $500 or $700 is more or less same since that is a HUGE gap for me.

    Anyways, I am on xroads between Canon 1300d or Sony A5000.
