    I'm saving up for a digital camera. I'm saving up for this one right now.

    I need your guys opinions on if that would be a good camera to learn how to use manual controls and other beginner stuff. I don't want to spend more than $200 to start off. The reason I need your opinions is because I found a fisheye for that camera. I wanted to get a fisheye for the camera eventually.

    Well, the fisheye is on sale for $32.95. Normally sold for $139.95. I could get the fisheye now to save a bunch of money. I could just save some more money until I could afford the camera.


    By the way, I'm going to be using it for general photography and maybe some sports.

    I would suggest looking at a 35mm film SLR...or just save your money until you can afford a proper digital camera.

    If your goal is to learn photography and expand your photographic horizon...a $200 digital camera will probably be a waste of money.
