The T1i would be fine, but so would just about any camera, even conceivably a point and shoot. Image quality is highly overrated. What makes a good photograph is more about composition and lighting than sharpness. Besides, quite a bit of "pixel peeping" sharpness is lost when downsizing photos for website use, so even a technically less-perfect camera's output would look identical, or nearly so, to a DSLR. Mostly you just need a camera with manual control available, and the knowledge of how to adjust exposure if necessary.
Hello! First of all I am a newbie to cameras and I have only experience with point and shoot digital cameras. I have been doing some research on digital SLR cameras and need some advice. I am involved in a brewery start-up and am in charge of pictures for the website. I know I am going to need good quality pictures to make the site as credible as possible. I want to take a lot of different types of photos (close up, wide angle, action) so I want a camera with interchangeable lenses. As for the body I have found this one that I like from one of the threads that seems to be basically what I will need:
So my questions are will this camera be good for my needs or is there a better style of camera I should use? Also, will I need to buy another lens immediately or will I be able to get away with the lens (Includes Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens) that comes with the camera to at least get good pics for the website?
Thanks for your time!
