Hello, pleased to hear you are enjoying this thread.

I suppose to answer your question; we would need to know your OH's level of skill or willingness to go further into it.

There three basic types of camera, each will do what you require with varying degrees of accuracy.

1) Compact


3) Bridge

Compact cameras are mainly point 'n shoot cameras, although many of those at the higher end are capable of taking stunning pics.

DSLR cameras are those chosen by keen amateurs and professionals....these have interchangeable lenses and are the most expensive & complicated.

Bridge cameras are a kindda midway house between compact & DSLR.

My choice would probably be:

Compact Canon PowerShot SX500

DSLR Nikon D3200

Bridge Canon PowerShot SX50HS

There are of course very good camera phones, which I know absolutely nothing about.

It's a starting point, but I'm sure others will have good suggestions.

PS. IMHO Canon & Nikon make the best cameras.

Did just that, James...must have taken about 20 different shots, but obviously didn't want to post all of them.

More nice piccies from you, Nikki....I particularly liked the  seed head & cuckoo spit.

Ann - No I didn't visit Southport this year, I visited Shrewsbury (usually held the week before) instead.

Thanks, Nikki....I took that pic at Southport flower show. Believe me, they were as big as footballs.

I grow the more modest non-stop type:

Anyone watching this 'Tudor Monastery Farm' series may wish to tune in a little earlier next Wednesday.

 A new series called ‘Nigel And Adam's Farm Kitchen' starts Wed 20th Nov 8.00-9.00pm on BBC1, featuring cook Nigel Slater & Countryfile's Adam Henson.

Anything Adam is involved in is usually interesting.


Reminder to watch tonight.

David they look like the woods at  the bottom of our road, except thankfullythere's no snow on them yet.

Those are here in sunny Staffordshire, star....'except thankfullythere's no snow on them yet.' hence my chosen title.
