Good cheap cameras for beginners
So I'm interested in photography and I have been looking at used cameras. One used camera that I've seen seems good (Nikon Coolpix P500 Digital Camera) but I have no knowledge of what camera I should buy. What cheap cameras are recommended for beginners that are pretty easy to use? I'm trying to keep the price about $130 or less.
I had to get away from sawdust for a few hours
So after breakfast I took a drive to Bombay Hook. I was home in time for lunch, and covered in sawdust by dinner. I love retirement.

Salad comes to mind when I hear that term. In this case, I'm referring to a collection of shots I took while on a short hike yesterday. The sun was barely peeking through the cloud cover. Everything seems new and fresh with the exception of the huge old oak in the first shot.

Old Barn About To Collapse
We were headed to Idaho (Powerball lottery tickets) yesterday so I swung by and took a few more photos of this old barn. It is really starting to "buckle" and may not survive another strong wind storm.

Hello gang... I am a long-time UH stalker that finally would like a group response. We were burned out in the northern California Camp fire, and I am slowly rebuilding my gear, hence the excuse for 'replacing' my camera :>). For years I used a UV filter to protect my lenses from mechanical damage until a pro whom I respect said 'oh no.. that degrades your images'. But now with two shiny new lenses, how much really do I need to worry about that ? Thanks for your responses in advance !!
City Night Photography Settings
I am practicing for my first city night shot. Here are the coordinates for google maps:
It's the first time I'll be using long exposures outside of practicing at home.
The camera is a Nikon Z6 with 24-70 F4 Lens.
What would be good starter settings?
Any other suggestions would be appreciated as well.
How to take a photo for making business card
I do real estate photography largely using Nikon D700. But donot have a clue what size/resolution of photo I should create that can be used for business cards. Shold the background be a screen, setting adjustments on the camera to simplify or just shoot in P mode, upper body ?
Then do you just send it aa card maker? ...kind of need an outline of process/ settings to follow. thnks
