Hello All, im looking for some advice from people in the know about Cameras.
I recently decided i wanted to buy a new camera and i saw on this site a really good deal on a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ38. (It received alot of heat and alot people said the price was great, about £185 i think - so i bought it off Currys)
Anyway ive been using it and whilst it does take some really sharp crisp images, and the zoom on it is fantastic, it does not take the style of image i want to acheive - What i want is to be able to do is take a photo of an image and have the subject in focus and all the background/surrounding blurred - i think these photos look ace and very proffessional.
Anyway i have been told these images can only be acheived by an SLR camera - and the camera i bought is not an SLR.
Can anyone reccomend if i should by an SLR Camera then which one to buy and how much ??
Also is it worth considering buying a seconf hand one off ebay rather than pay out full price for one??...afterall if do decide to buy an SLR Camera then i would probably put my Lumix on ebay and expect to loose abit of money as its only a month old !
