Hi, I'm from Italy and I'm going to buy my DSLR for life, so I ask you some suggestions. Thank you so much!

Are you looking for a compact point & shoot camera, a DSLR, or something in between?


Is this your first camera? First ever, or first digital?

I have a bridge

Are you interested in a high level of control, or would you prefer to let the camera do as much "thinking" as possible?



What budget have you allocated for buying this camera? Please be as specific as possible.

max 2200 USD

Do you plan to spend more on additional accessories now or in the future? (Lenses, lighting, tripods, batteries, memory cards, camera bags... it adds up!)


How long do you plan on keeping this new camera?

lots of years


What will you generally use the camera for?

landscapes, macro and animals and portraits
Are you going to photograph sports? What sport, and from how far away?


Will you be shooting a lot of indoor photos, or other low-light photos?

more outdoor

Will you make prints, or primarily view and share images on a computer screen? If you make prints, will they typically be small (up to 57") or medium sized (810"), or are you interested in larger sizes as well?


Are you interested in spending time post-processing to make an image "perfect", or would you prefer to use images basically straight from the camera?

lots of time for the perfect image


Are there particular brands or models you already have in mind?
