| p.1 #1 · What to buy to my discerning wife |
My wife is a Realtor, she frequently takes my camera to take photos of properties for clients, many of these houses have very bad lighting, plain white walls, very little time to take pictures, she is been borrowing lately my new D600 with 24-85vr (before was a 60D, a 30D and XSI), and she has always complain about the hunting auto focus, no matter if it is with a 300$ camera or a 2500$ camera.
I have tried to explain how to use center focus, all point, focus and recompose, but she is not really interested, she just want the thing to "work" (sigh)
My latest response is to disengage AF and go manual focus.. this approach seems to be working except for the fact that many images are not in focus.
So here is my question, I have come to the realization that she needs her own camera, I have been thinking about a Nikon d3100 with kit lens for around 400$, but that would not be an improvement on the AFocus issue
My question to you is what to get her for around 400$? a Olympus 4/3? a Nikon J1 ? I am open to suggestions
Thank you in advance
