Crediting people's work is always an odd topic to talk about. Or at least as I find this, especially at what point do you stop crediting? For example I would be fine not being credited for taking a picture of someone on their phone on a night out. But I would like to be credited if I used my camera, and especially if I were being paid. Having said that, I know someone who would want to be credited for the picture on a phone.

This article is about what makes a good camera and how to pick a camera for you. I feel now is a good time to write this article as I have a rather large gathering of cameras in my house. If you have read the captions under the photos in my other articles you might see a trend in the cameras I use... Nikon.
So a common phrase within photography is this: "You should invest in good lenses before you buy a camera."
