Well, this will be my first post on this forum... but not my first venture into photography. I've been shooting ever since I was in highschool and I think I'm ready to try to make a little money at this. I wanted to pose this question to the pros on the board. What would be a good camera to get started in the world of stock? I've been considering anything from the Nikon D50, although if I had it my way it'd be the 200! I even started looking at the dslr wannabes this past week. I was almost set to go pick up a Fuji S9000 until I started seeing that it might have some noise problems not suitable for stock. I also was looking at the Samsung GX-1S, as it can accept pentax k mount lenses. A wide range of suggestions would be helpful. And I must admitt I'm on a bit of a budget. But I do understand you get what you pay for. I've been noticing that a bare minimum in stock is about 4MP. I was planning on shooting something from 6-8MP. So if anyone has some reccomendations for me I'd really appreciate it!
