I'm hoping some of you photog buffs out there can help me?? Pretty please? I am clueless.
My digital camera needs: I really don't need something fancy or high tech, but the biggest importance for me is WIDE ANGLE LENS. 98% of the time I photograph spaces, so a wide angle is a must.
I'm considering two options. LOW and HIGH.
LOW: Canon SX40 HS 12.1MP Digital Camera with 35x Wide Angle Optical Image
This is basically a point and shoot, but says it has a wide angle. I played with it at Best Buy and from what I can it seems good, but other than that I'm clueless. This would be so easy to bring around with me and the price is great ($370). But this would be just a "cheap and simple" option.
I don't know anything about cameras, but I have heard amazing things about this lens. It's also what Erika from Urban Grace uses and her pictures are amazing. It's wide angle.
EDIT: I knew you guys would be SO HELPFUL!! I've already learned that a 10-22mm would be better for my needs. Now I'm thinking this would be a good one?
Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC HSM Lens
& Canon EOS Rebel T3
I've heard this is a good, basic starter camera, but would it even be compatible with the lens I want??? I have no idea! Please help!
My husband thinks I should get the lens & body because it's better for the long haul.
For those of you who know cameras, what are your thoughts?
