I'm just trying to get in to photography and have recently posted a deal request re: digital cameras. How suitable is this for a real beginner?

It strikes me as quite a lot to spend, but if it really is a lot better than a £120 Sony compact, it might tempt me.

Thanks for posting anyway, since as I said, it does give me food for thought.

I would recommend you go into a shop and have a try. I did this in Jessops to get a feel of the Sony / Canon / Nikon offerings. I went for a Canon DSLR in the end (didn't buy from Jessops though :thumbsup: ).

You'll know what feels right for you as they vary in size.

Samsung NX10 is worth the extra.

The quality of the photos (noise, fidelity, low-light performance) will be better on a "micro four-thirds" camera like this or the Panasonic G1/G2 than any compact due to the increased sensor size. A DSLR will have a larger sensor again, and do even better. Both micro four-thirds and DSLR type cameras have removable lenses so are more flexible than most compacts.

On the downside, they're more expensive, heavier and bulkier than a compact, and you really won't be getting the best from them if you use them in fully automatic mode and have no desire to learn any photographic techniques and how to exploit the manual controls.

Yer pays yer money...
