I’m Jim, a professional photographer from New Jersey. Welcome to the site! I’ve set this site up because a lot of people ask me at dinner parties what the best camera would be for them to take the best photos as an amateur. My answer generally starts with “Photos are predominantly about getting the composition and light levels right…” and end with “There are soooo many good cameras out there.” So this is my attempt to start putting my thoughts down on paper, or rather the web, to guide people as to which cameras are better than others. Remember though, it’s always going to come down to budget, personal preference and that all important composition and lighting. Most importantly though!!! You should have fun!
