I'm looking for a camera to use to take pictures. (duh. ha)
Specifically, something that is a step above a little digital camera, that is still easy to use, has a fast shutter speed, etc for taking pictures of horses for sale ads and whatnot.
I'm a pretty much an amateur at taking photos, but I have a good eye.
I've used other people's Nikon in the past and have really liked them.
If you don't have an investment in Nikon lenses, might also want to research the Nikon1. Mirrorless camera and the Nikon1 let's you shoot still, video plus a version of video that makes it easier to pull a still shot from the video. Also has some interchangeable lenses but not compatible with the Nikon DSLR cameras.
We have an L810 at work and it's truly awful. Slow, slow, slow - takes forever to focus, has the shutter speed of a narcoleptic tortoise. It's possible that ours is a quality control failure, but there's really nothing good I can say about it and I would hate to try using it for any kind of action photography.
My advice is to keep looking!
