I would say, the less expensive models of Canon or Nikon digital SLR will be be a great choice. It would likely to do all you want and much more. The more expensive camera bodies (over $1000) allow you to push boundaries like low light photography, super fast frames-per-second (great for pro sports photographers), etc. Thats probably way more than you want/need. For a "budding" photographer wanting great pics of their pet, I would get an entry level DSRL Canon or Nikon, then spend money to upgrade the lens (if you feel it necessary) and possibly a wireless flash.

I recommend Canon or Nikon because not only do they make good cameras, you get the most choices of high quality lenses if you go deeper into the hobby.


Camera bodies: Canon T3, T3i (a step up), or T2i (previous model still available but cheaper than a T3i)

I dont know the Nikon model numbers since Im a Canon shooter.

Since I am also a birder, I just wanted to tell you I love the little blue heron. What lens?

Thanks lily cd re. You mean youre also a birder in addition to being a poodler?

That was with my Canon 70 - 300L. I love photographing the larger birds we have down here in Fl.

Yes, birder too since I was about ten, suppose I should update my profile since that predates poodler, the spoonbill is even nicer.

I believe I'm getting a Nikon D3100 in about a month. I'm going to need an editing program, though. Any suggestions? I need something fairly user-friendly and for a "hobbyist" not a professional. I also use a Mac.

Adobe Lightroom is far less expensive than Photoshop. I dont know how easy it is to learn. I own it, but havent installed it yet. I bought it just because there was a deal where you could buy Lightroom and get a $400 off coupon for Photoshop. So now I own both but havent had time to install either yet. Will probably install photoshop later today. I know the two apps take a much different approach to photo editing.

Can someone explain to me why my pics always show up small when I post them? Obviously I'm doing something wrong :(

Is this an example?

Snake necklace

It looks plenty big to me. (Yep, thats what she said.. haha)

When you post a pic as an attachment, your post just shows a "thumbnail" image that expands when you click it. The other way to post is to put your pic on a photo site like flickr.com or photobucket.com, then post a link to the image by clicking the picture image (looks like a mountain and sun) on the message toolbar.

I can't see your attempt so i don't know what you did wrong. try posting the pic to this thread.

make sure you're using the link to the picture itself, not the flickr page that displays it.
in flickr, right-click the image. a menu pops up. Choose large size. then right click the large image that comes up, choose Copy image address. paste that into your poodle forum post by using the image button on the toolbar.
