Handy and WIFI
Last year's launch of the Nikon can buy for more than $ 400. The camera has a matrix 1 / 2.3-inch, and can capture images with a resolution up to 20 megapixels, which is rather a marketing trick than actual performance – crammed 20 megapixels on such a small sensor can result in rather a deterioration of image quality, not its improvement. The lens has a wide range of 25-200 mm, which is 8x optical zoom. Of course, this price does not liczmy for high brightness glass – f / 3.7-6.6. The movie mode is HD at 30 frames per second – the lack of Full HD. The model weighs only 118 grams and fits easily in your pocket. Can boast a WIFI. And takes pictures:

Importantly, this kind of webcam can be a problem attach properly to everything and take it with you everywhere. For this SJCAM has WIFI, which means that we have a preview image using a smartphone. A few examples:
Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28
A long and bright and …
Among the proposals used for less than 500 zł very interesting looks superzoom Panasonic. Although the camera was released in 2008, which in the world of technology makes him an old man, in terms of the parameters is doing better than those listed here new compacts. As in the case of superzoomu – we are dealing with a very long lens – 27-486 mm, and so more than twice greater range than compacts. matrix is a 1 / 2.33 inch, which is the same as compacts, and its resolution is 10 megapixels – trust me, it's really enough. In addition to the length of the lens it is also good brightness – f / 2.8-4.4. With such clarity, combined with the length of the lens we can count on a nice blur, and when the camera will cope better in low light than other compacts. The movie mode is HD 720p, and the camera also has image stabilization. Importantly, in contrast to compact the superzoomu can also use manually in P, A, S, M, which is important for anyone who wants to take up photography seriously. And some sample pictures.

As promised at the beginning of the article. Even for less than 400 zł we find the camera body, and when we look good and we will be patient with it for less than 500 zł get the camera and lens kitowym. Besides, we can buy a kit used also for the already 100 zł, and our "greenhouse" can cheaply be completed with M42 lenses. Why choose SLR camera? Because check much better than compact, and Nikon is doing well, as we saw during the test D3000. The camera has an APS-C (DX nomenclature Nikon), and so several times greater than the compact, which makes it a much better cope in low light conditions, and at the same length lens and aperture will gain much more blur image. In addition, we can use it fully manually – we are not doomed to automation. In short – SLR gives us incomparably better pictures than compact, even as worn-out as the Nikon D3000. The camera is the ideal choice for studying photography – will use the manual settings, yet is easy to use and has a special mode, which teaches us its support.
