I want to start taking photos as a hobby. I am not very experienced with a camera, and have limited knowledge of the different types out. I am willing to learn to use a more complex camera setup through use, though.
I want a camera that can take high quality photos and things like panorama, self-timer, long exposures, night-time. I am aiming to mostly shoot still life. something I can walk around with exploring a city or easily take on a hike or backpacking trip. maybe even up to the ski hill.
I want to keep the price under $500 if possible, but i'm open to options maybe just above that ceiling.
I have looked at the sony NEX series, but I really don't know what else is out there or if there's something that would meet my need better.
any suggestion helps! just need something to get me started and get out there!thanks
