Hello DPI Forum,
Iíve been lurking around here for some time now, but this is my first post so please do be kind!
Firstly, I am brand new to this hobby of photography. It is always something that Iíve been interested in, Iíve even had a play with an old skool SLR from time to time, but Iím practically a total novice.
Iíve done all the reading and research I can, but Iím ultimately stuck in a bit of a rut in regards to what camera I should be buying myself. This is where I need your advice!
The 2 cameraís I have narrowed this down too are the Panasonic Lumix G1 and the Panasonic DMC LX3. I know my two choices are totally different beasts but I am aiming to go travelling in August, so thereís a niggle at the back of mind that even the G1 will be too big to lug around. This is where the LX3 looks appealingÖ
My question is, is it worth me getting the G1, which will give me greater creative versatility in the future. Or, shall I buy the LX3 for its portability, but run the risk or limiting myself creativelyÖ.
I know this is a slightly unfair comparison, but I was just wondering what you guys would do if you were in my position? Would I find it hard to learn the basics on a LX3? Would I be limited as much as I think I would?
Or is it simply a case that they are 2 different cameraís for 2 different jobsÖ
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated and thank you for taking the time to read my monster post
