To anyone out there willing to voice an opinion..

 

i am incredibly intrested in purchasing & learning to use a dslr camera , however as you will gather i have no previous knowlege or experience of these other than peering endlessly at all models & types displayed in shop windows.

 

As someone who has is unsure of all requirements and good starting points i am looking for some assistance in -

 

1, which model to go for?

2, prices i should expect to pay?

3, where best to purchase?

 

Having only been in Pattaya for a matter of months and workin most that time i am yet to work out where , what & how as of yet and would appreciate any help in this??

 

In addition is there any sort of club/s in these parts that may be open to someone like me to join.

 

Thanks -

if anyones listening / reading

Here are few good sites to use as a resource for comparing cameras. Word of mouth is good, but also do your due diligence, know the specs and do some research on your own.

Another site to consider is http://www.kenrockwell.com/

 

This guy strongly recommends the Nikon D5000 (which I ended up buying and are very happy with) plus a 'dream-team' of lenses to go with it.

 

All the best on your search and education.

I have just,today, bought the very same model. Spent ages in the shop trying them all for feel (and price) and talking them through with the extremely helpful assistant, followed by a nearly half hour session on using it. Am itching to try it out, but have to wait for the battery charge then read the manual!! Also forgot to buy batteries for the flash gun.

 

Mind you I reckon I'll still take crap pics when out in LOS

But...what do I know?

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
      30th of May - Lust soi 6 
      6th of June - Illuzion
      13th of June - (next bar we have open)

      I look forward to meeting people again.
