Sorry about this. My first post didn't register. I'm looking to upgrade from my very basic compact digital Fujifilm 2mp camera. Now, I have always had a keen interest in photography, but have never bought a 'serious' digital camera. I have all the ideas and enthusiasm for a good photo, but not the camera to do them justice and now I think it's time I indulged in this interest. I prefer taking general Landscapes and 'views', and sunrises/sunsets, maybe with water shots too. I also like the idea of 'macro' shots. I like the idea of a 'proper' looking camera, something with a kind of DSLR appearance, but they are out of my budget.I'm not too up on all the specs, but I'd like a good mixture of auto settings with some manual settings too, so the camera has to be easy to use, but with the option of getting more out of it when you want to fine tune things. I'd like something with a decent optical zoom too. Can anyone recommend some camera's to consider up to a budget of £400 ish please? Also, if anyone can recommend some websites that can help me choose a camera and give explanations, that'd be great too. Thanks very much for any advice anyone can give me.
