Re: Help with bad quality!

Do you have a higher resolution photo that you could post? This one is kind of small.

Re: Help with bad quality!

Nowadays there are millions of cameras to buy, and there are many cheap cameras, so why not get one decent camera that will be much much better than a mobile camera.

Thanks for the help Keven, it really looks a lot better.

Tareq, I'm in the process of saving up for one - hopefully a Canon, but seeing as I'm a student it's proving pretty hard!

My recommendation is to save up for what you will really want. As i spent around $1200 on first camera and lenses... then spent $2000 (1yr later) on the next camera and lenses. I could have saved just $800 more and got what I really wanted and needed.

Always buy to what you’re going to be shooting. And save to where you’re not.

Not a problem... hope it helped,
-Keven

Yeahh, that's what I'm planning on doing, I have no idea about what I'm really looking for so I'll look around and ask for help too
