Trying to buy my own camera in a bit so i won't have to depend on people lol

Yeah, can anybody recommend some that have:
-good quality, blur features (not the shitty ones where you have to be like 1-2 feet from the cam for it to work razz
-Decent battery life

Thats what I thinking. Also he might of been thinking about the Tilt Shift effect that CANON cameras are coming with now.

He's talkin about getting close up to use it, so probably bokeh


tiltshift looks bad most of the time >sad

Yea more than likely. I'd like to disagree. Its looks good when people apply it properly.

yeah this. but with most cameras i've used, that only works when you're like super close to the cam. once you start to back up though you get "blurred" out with the background stuff.

damn i hope ya'll understand what i'm talking about sad

yeah

if you're looking at a camera, search for that camera's group on flickr first to see sample shots

a $300 point n shoot probably isn't gonna give you the narrow depth of field u want

maybe a cheaper dslr in that range

yeah i kinda figured it wouldn't because of the price because i was looking for a camera where i could at least pick and choose the focus/depth of shots.

and i'll look up that stuff on flickr. thanks dudecool

Spend a little more money for a cheap DSLR. I would look at a canon T1i, or a Nikon D3000, or D5000.

Get an old Canon, Nikon, or Pentax SLR with like a 50mm f1.4 or 1.8. You can get this for like $100-$150 on ebay and it will out perform any kind of digital camera you would spent that $300 on.

idk if what you wanted was a camera just to document stuff like nights out with your friends or something, but if you're looking to get into photography on a 300 dollar budget I would just find myself a nice film slr, you'll learn a lot/have a lot of fun using film.

+1 on the Nikon coolpix L120. ive seen some pretty good pics with that.

you could go to for a film cam but $ from buying and developing adds up.

try selecting a camera with a 2.8 aperture or less, but i don't think you'll find less on a compact camera. even better if the camera has A or M modes so you can set the aperture yourself.

lol don't know much about aperture/lenses, but i just looked online and saw some pictures with the nikon coolpix Ll20, with a little editing, that might work.

the GF1 is like 3 years old dude, it's been updated with the GF2 and GF3 - so i think the $1000 price tag is its new release price - you can find it cheaper new, and even cheaper used

also if you had a choice between the GF1, 2 and 3 - go the GF1
