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.

Spring Mix
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.
1 This begged to be converted to B&W

2 "Miners' Lettuce"

3 Wild Iris


5 All that remains

New growth on an old tree

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.

2. Rear-side view

3. Front-side view

4. Front close-up view

5. Even the ladder rungs are missing

It seems simple....
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:
39.947228, -75.187457
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.
