This is part answer - but also number of questions - as answering these will help steer you towards a possible answer. You can do the following to see if a Canon + CHDK solution is what you want - You say that you used a $70 Canon camera. If that is a current camera and a new price it may be less suitable than an older model with more appropriate specs ...

I remember when I took my first photography class and I had a bridge camera, Nikon P90. It was not sufficient for me then, because it is a camera with basic things, you can't switch lenses, so you can't pursue very good image quality. However, it depends what you are searching for, what type of class you are taking (for very beginners or you will reach ...

First ask the lecturer/course co-ordinator! After that, assuming your course suggests/requires a DSLR: I'd recommmend that you physically handle the various options and find something that feels good to you (comfortable etc.) Don't spend too much money on a camera body and neglect the lenses, rather spend more on good lenses than the body. You may ...

Buy the most expensive Canon DSLR you can afford. Although Canon's are not suitable for professional use, they do have two distinct advantages over other brands for newcomers: They are simple to use (and there is vast troubleshooting literature on the internet) and They are are relatively inexpensive and tend to provide a good "bang for your buck". On ...

It sounds like you are describing mirrorless system cameras. They have the interchangeable lenses and some of them have larger sensors, but they always use the sensor directly to an LCD or OLED display rather than using a viewfinder (or in rare case, use a viewfinder that doesn't go through the lens), which saves on size and weight (while giving up a few ...

Considering the price factor, a cheap entry level DSLR with its kit lens alone is not producing much better quality than a point&shoot from the same price group is. The Sony QX10 is among the Point&shoots here. Only with a more compact size than is usual. Difference in depth of field is one major difference. It means that a focusing mistake will be ...

The QX10 and QX100 aren't actually lenses for your phone, they are a miniature point and shoot camera that uses your phone for control and display of the images. (Think of it kind of like a remote controlled digital camera with no screen.) It has its own sensor and is basically the same as buying a point and shoot that copies the photos to your phone. ...

The main benefit of a mobile phone is that it fits in your pants pocket so you can take pictures anywhere you go without too much discomfort. With the QX10, it increases the bulk of your mobile phone to be comparable to a point-and-shoot camera, so why not get an actual point-and-shoot for a lot less? (In both cases, it will be difficult to fit in a pants ...

A camera phone and a DSLR are just about the opposite in every way: Camera phone: fixed lens, no supported accessories, small and light, built for quick snapshots and easy sharing, will be obsolete in 3 years. DSLR: replaceable lens, more accessories than you can count, bulky and (relatively) heavy, built to give the photographer control, a system you can ...

A phone is not a camera. A bluray player is not a cd player. An RV is not a car, nor a house.A bluray player is a good backup for a cd player (Ive often tried to get one from hifi brands thats supposed to be a replacement, but always beg to have my old cd player back haha). An RV is a convenient vessel for camping trips on the go. A phone with a good camera ...

I have a Nokia Lumia 920. Not a 1020, but similar. The camera is better than any other phone camera I've ever seen or used. And even better, there's a camera app developed by Nokia -- not Microsoft -- that gives you as much control over your phone camera as you would over a DSLR camera. ISO, aperture, manual focus, etc. It's an incredibly versatile camera ...
