Looking for a camera
So I may have some spare $$ and I've always wanted a half decent camera to take pictures with. I'm not looking to make it a profession or anything serious but I would like to be able to take some nice photos.
I'm looking for something that is hobbyist oriented.
Not super expensive - ~$1000 max should get me fully set up, although I am open to getting stuff used
Something that I can learn on - I have never really used much more than a P&S
I'd rather stay away from Nikon - have had bad experiences with them breaking and taking forever to be repaired in the past
