comment What are the disadvantages of super-zoom cameras compared to binoculars?
This answer is based on the premise that 50mm is what the eye sees, which is only a convenient number, also based on many assumptions. The eye is far more complex than any camera, and so we cannot relate a focal length to 'what the eye sees' and how the images are displayed affects the magnification of the image and so it is not possible to assign a zoom factor to the images. For binoculars, however, it is possible, since the eye is viewing the image projected by its lenses directly.

Try having a look at the questions tagged beginner and see if there are any answers that help you. If not, ask another question, specifying exactly what type(s) of photography you would like to do, your budget and maybe some examples of what you like.

comment What exactly is “base ISO” and how do I find what is base ISO on my camera?
It is entirely possible. There have, in fact, been some posts that are longer than your entire blog post. However, we are not asking for a full explanation, just a basic summary of the important points. And the question only asks about base ISO, so you only need a paragraph, which I could almost fit in a comment.
