So here is the deal. I am an outdoor enthusiast and I am interested in getting into photography. I would love to get a DSLR but it might be a little out of the price range. I am interested in Wildlife, landscape and macro photography. I deer hunt alot so I would like to have the ability to take close up pictures of deer from about 50-100 yards away. I also am out and about with great opportuities to take pics of landscapes plants animals sunsets...just about anything out doors. So my major question is as a beginner (I have been doing a ton of research on this by the way) What would be the smarter route, start off with an advanced digital camera and learn more about photography before tryin a DSLR or do you think a DSLR is the way to go. I think getting the DSLR might help me learn more about photography and i will have a camera for a long time. Finally if you could, I would like to know what specific brand and model would be best for me. Also with the photography i am looking into what are the absolutely must haves in a camera?
