Good camera to use

3 posts in this topic

What is a good (takes good pics and is EASY to use) camera for taking pics of the fish?

Nothing outrageously expensive but I definitely want it to do a good job! Thanks for any and all advice. There are some amazing people taking amazing pictures on this forum.

what is outrageously expensive ?

I have a Nikon D7000 and I use a Tamron 90mm Macro lens , ( I have macro shots of very small fry < 5mm taken with that combo on this forum somewhere - that hit the limit of the hardware but worked out ok )

Lighting is the big problem I use 2 chinese Flash units ( Yongnuo or something like that ) bought 3 cheap off ebay 1 failed 6 months in . the other 2 still going good .

I have a Canon 70d with a 60mm macro , but the Nikon is easier to use for that purpose .

The Nikon with the lens should cost well under $1000

but most decent quality cameras will get a decent shot if the lighting is ok .

Nikon have a cash back offer at the moment, bought a entry level Nikon dslr at good guys for $549 with lens, with then $100 cash back from Nikon, so ended up being $449. Jb at the exact one for $699 so it pays to price shop.
