Not sure if this is best place to ask, but here goes.
I'm looking to buy a digital slr camera which doesn't cost the earth but can cope with pretty much all day to day photography requirements.
Is it possible to use the lenses I have from my now defunct Olympus OM10? or are they incompatible with digital cameras?
Also needs a proper viewfinder thingy, not just a screen on the back.
What are your thought re buying second hand?
Hostafan - this isn't an easy question to answer without knowing what your requirements are.
I can say that unless you are lucky enough to track down a second-hand Olympus camera compatible with your old lenses, they will not be of any use.......some camera shops will buy them though.
Digital camera types come as 'point and shoot', bridge or DSLR......my recommendation would be to get a bridge, as they are less expensive, less complicated and will achieve results acceptable for most circumstances.
Perhaps a SONY Cyber-shot DSCH300B at £99 from Currys/PC World would suit your needs.
I would say that there has never been a time when you could get so much camera for your money.
