Getting frustrated, took my camera ( an Olympus family digital type) out today, got a few of what has become my standard sort of a photo: Not exactly magazine material, is it!? I have to get so close to even vaguely fill the viewfinder...and then contend with shutter lag...that I don't seem to progress beyond this sort of shot. I need to 'up-gun' a bit. I want a camera with low shutter lag and a lens that equates to about a x10 bino. For the money I want to spend, I'm thinking Nikon D50...but haven't a clue as to lenses. ...I'm sure some of you have been down this path already; grateful for any advice!
