So I'm down to deciding on just two now (DSLR Cameras) and I went last night and held them both in my hands to see which was a better fit and such. And then I got to talking to the store employee...
She went on and on saying you have to set these cameras to do what you want, that it is not as easy as just point and shoot. I understood that there would be a little more to it, but by what she was saying, unless you have classes on how to properly work and set up a DSLR, don't even bother getting one because otherwise you will be lost...and she especially pointed out that their "auto" is no better than your average point and shoot.
So I need some advice from those who are DSLR knowledgeable...are they really that difficult?
All I want is a camera that isn't 3 seconds late on taking a picture and doesn't often blur everything that is moving, even when set to "sports" or "action" or "children" and doesn't especially blur literally everything if you are zoomed in a bit. I want to get perfect shots at Disney World (because Lord only knows if we'll be back) and I want to get shots of DD when she's out on the football field in another couple of weeks cheering that doesn't have half her face looking like she's posessessed by demons. But yet I also want very good posed shots too...without having to mess with a ton of settings between pictures. I was told again and again and again a DSLR is what I'm looking for, but I don't want to have to take classes to use it...and I really don't have the time to do that.
