Hey, im new here but i got two dire newbie questions i NEED to be answered. I hope i've come to the right place . I love Photography. Maybe im not the best and usually resort to sticking to Auto Mode or Scene Selector but i love it none the less. I love taking pictures of ANYTHING. Now prior to coming here...i did some research and i think i became another victim of the classic "I wanna do photography and i went out and bought an amazing camera but i cant use the full features of it yet". I bought a Nikon Coolpix S710. I want to learn how to grasp ALL the features and what not of the camera...can you guys recommend any books/videos/guides? I looked but there isnt any books specific to the camera...ill keep looking though. On to the second question...i read someone said that if your unsure or not willing to commit to lenses and all that, a DSLR isnt something you would wanna invest in...but a REALLY nice camera that doesnt use external lenses. What do you folks recommend as the best camera UNDER a DSLR? I know i know, i wont get the SAME quality...but i want the best camera under a DSLR thats still digital. Recommendations?
