I use a Samsung NX 3000 and it's brilliant. I've been using it for three years and have only ever had one problem with it which was easily fixable. The quality is brilliant and it "only" cost me around £200 which is cheap as far as cameras go (one of the lenses I bought for it was more expensive than the actual camera). I'm not sure if you can still get the same model since I got my camera in 2015 but there are probably updated models that are similar and even better, improved. The only downside is that Samsung doesn't communicate with Apple so if you are an iPhone user you cannot directly import your photos from the camera (I have to AirDrop them instead after importing them to my Mac).Great pics, everyone!
I'm hoping to eventually buy a DSLR. Any recommendations?
The tenacity of some plants, like some people, is astonishing. They manage to thrive and bloom under the harshest and most sparse conditions.Several years ago, we went to Death Valley to see the bloom. It was a big deal, because they'd gotten more rain than usual, and the bloom was expected to be more impressive than usual.
As we rolled into the valley, there were several cars and RVs parked along the shoulder, with people out taking pictures.
We pulled in behind a small camper and piled out. As we were taking in the miracle of flowers, the older woman from the camper said loudly, "Where's the bloom? I thought there was supposed to be a spectacular bloom!"
I looked at her in amazement and replied, "Honey, you're standing in it!"
Had to laugh, because people build something up in their minds... but it's still the desert.
Most of the flowers were yellow daisy types on a skinny stalk; but if you looked carefully, you could find others. Some flowers grew so close to the ground, that they blended in with the rocky soil. Some were no bigger than the tip of a pinky fingernail.
First thing that went through my head was "Huh. Moses and the burning bush". lol
