Hi Lori! I have been following your video blog and have found it very useful!! However I still am back and forth on what camera to buy and really just want an experienced NON BIAS opinion that is specific for my situation! I went to school for photography but it was all film back then so as far as digital goes Im not the sharpest nail in the box and a lot of the terminology I dont understand. Through out the year I more or less take photos for personal use, however durring the summer, I work as a photographer for a high school study abroad company. The company has 5 different programs which means 5 different photographers, one for each program. This is my 3rd year working for them and they are big fans of my work. The first year I was in Italy, last year France, and this year they want me to shoot Spain and Greece(2 months). Here is the thing, I have been shooting with a Nikon D50(dont laugh, it was my first digital camera and has been great) Every year the progam puts out a brochure with the photos from each program. My photos are the strongest, but the actual image quality and color is lagging. I need a camera and lens that can produce quality images and I really dont want to spend a lot since it is more or less a summer job. What I am currently looking at is:Nikon d7000, Nikon d5100, and Canon 60d. So?!? What do you think is a good camera that would meet my needs, at a good price? It also has to be durable and easy to use! Thanks for your help!Hannah Enyoureyez@aol.com
