I have a camera question for all glass artists out there.
My wonderful Minolta Dynax 5D (digital SLR) has a broken (overused !) shutter button and is due at the menders as soon as I can get it there…(will be posting it out Tuesday as soon as we get home from France on the chunnel)…
but… it may be that it can’t be mended… that the part/s it needs will not be available as Minolta died several years ago. Mr camera mender says he will do his best but no guarantee he can fix it this time.
so advice please.
I need to buy another camera, even if this one can be fixed and kept as my backup or glass use only (I do take a lot of holiday / family photos as well).
I’m pretty certain I need SLR to have any chance of good glass photos - given that glass is extremely tricky to photograph well.
Wondering about a Panasonic Lumic G3 - which is a compact semi SLR ?
Certainly neither our little compact camera nor phone camera can come anywhere close to usable pics.
What does everyone else use, recommendations would be most welcome.
Wondering how I can get to try one out before buying - take laptop, card reader, glass and suction hook into shop. Stick glass on window, take photo, download into laptop and check it is ok ?
Will they let me do that !
