Getting a 1st DSLR

I've been reading quite a few forum and got to know some really do ask the same question on my mind. Which DSLR suitable for a noob or those who want to move up to DSLR from point-and-shoot camera.

Here is my guide, I'm new and experienced it. Hope you'll get some ideas out of it.
  1. Talk to your photographer friend.
  2. Borrow a DSLR from ur photographer friend so that you get a feel of owning one.
  3. Read reviews (dpreview/steves-digicams/etc), lots of them and drill to a camera that match your needs and personalities.
  4. Pay some visits to your local camera shop, see the camera for yourself. Hold it, feel it and try it out.
  5. Try to get the best bargain or better still get ur photographer friend bring you to his fav camera shop. (U can enjoy the member's price)
  6. Once you got it, play with it and enter to a new zone where you'll get better quality and control of your pictures.
  7. Lastly, enjoy it and share it with your friends.
  8. Another last word, since it's a quality pictures why not earn money with it? Google for Microstock photography and you'll know what I mean.

I will blog about Microstock photography as well, stay tuned. :)
