WHAT TO BUY???

by handras / November 8, 2010 6:29 AM PST

Hello everyone, I am looking to purchase my first DSLR camera and any help/advice would be much appreciated. I do a lot of hunting and fishing and I'm looking for a camera that can take quick pictures (for ex. getting a fish jumping out of the water) and one that can zoom very far...I know I may have to buy a seperate lens for that. I am just tired of my little cameras taking for ever to get a shot and its to late to snap once something already happened. I would like one mainly to get shots of wildlife such as fish, deer, and waterfowl. Also one that has clear video on it because I like to film while offshore fishing and I make videos out of the trips I take...I really know nothing about these cameras but i dont mind spending up to $1000 on something that will finally be useful for me...Thanks in advance for any the help!

Pentax K-7

It's a pro-level camera at a non-pro price, and the only one at its price that is fully weather sealed. The kit lens offered is weather resistant as well. The body and lens is widely available for under $1000; the price has dropped because it is being replaced with the new K-5.

Thanks for the reponse and help! I was looking at the K-7 and it sounds like a camera that would be really helpful to me but after purchasing what i would need it seems a little pricey....I also noticed the K-x and it seemed to be a good camera also, just not as advanced...do you think this one would be a decent camera for the outdoors also?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
