that might be a good option for me will take a look and look at some shots taken by this camera.

I've got a canon 700d. Less megapixals than the nikon but great camera.. flip round screen too and 399 at currys at the moment with the 18-55mm kit lens which means you could get the ef 50mm 1.8 lens too and still be in budget for the out of focus backgrounds.. great lens for the money. Not ideal if your capture shots are in very tight swims as you need the camera back a bit with the focal length on a crop sensor. You don't need to be a mile away and you get great shots. Hope this helps

Hi guys, I am looking for someone to point me in the right direction as am looking to get my first DSLR in the next few months.

I have a top budget of 500 and just wondered for me what would be the best option. What I want from it is crisp images 80% of my photography will be of captures with a few scenic shots and wildlife snaps. I like the shallow depth of field shots so needs good capabilities re this. Finally good self take capabilities so rotating screen is needed with good night-time results . I am currently looking at the Nikon d5500 this is obviously at the top end of my budget with standard kit lens. Are there better (cheaper which will give me the results I want) options out there to consider.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Dan

Evening guys. Do polarising filters have the same effect as polarised sun glasses do in reducing surface glare? So as to use with a telephoto zoom lens to locate and identify fish from distance.

JACK-2

This chap was in the garden for about an hour calling for mum, I'm a lazy amateur so used a Nikon D5300 with a 70-300 zoom, no tripod (didn't think I would get as many photos as I did)
EDIT
After posting this photo he came back and it rained......where's my mum

2nd EDIT
He was still in the garden at 8pm so out came the spare landing net and he was caught, he was a guest at the cardboard box B&B for the night (he wouldn't have a prayer with the local cats), took him out this morning gave some breakfast before showing him the door, a bit later one of the parents came down and fed him, came back home couldn't see him.....job done, no it wasn't there he was on the bloody front gate post, I came out slammed the door and he flew down the road, from now on I'm letting nature take it' course

They're great models....one quite often sits on my boot waiting for food, a few weeks ago one landed on my boot then hopped up to my knee, I just froze with a big smile on my face

PS great photo

Ok thanks, I'll have a look at some this week, I'm just not sure whether it'll be too bulky that I don't bother taking it out unless I'm actually planning to use it rather than just having it in the bag. Plus my primes are tiny and I'm not sure I'd have room for my fingers

If you are ever thinking of using ND grads then you really need square/rectangular. Buy the holder then get the attachment rings you need or use step up/downs. Or keep it light and just carry a blob of blu tac.

If you are on a budget get the bigger set, you'll be better off in the long run. One polarising filter and holder will cancel out any savings made buy buying small.

What are the advantages of the square filters? I've stuck with the circular type up to now, and although I have polarizers to suit most lenses I just got the nd a size up for my biggest lens and got stepping rings. Would I need a holder to suit different lenses or are they adaptable?

Welding glass sounds interesting I'll check that out

I use the Lee Big Stopper. You could just use some welding glass, there's plenty of info online and the colour shift is not impossible to correct.

Thanks, i had a look andThey look good, a bit pricey and difficult to get hold of tho.
I'm working near Tottenham Court Road this week, a 2 minute walk from park cameras, so I'll take the camera and check a couple out.
