Best answer:

Answer by fhotoace
Any DSLR camera can be used to create art

As you should know, the tool used to create art is just a tiny piece of the process. You must first have the skills to use the tools.

Unfortunatly, $ 200 will not buy any DSLR.

Next step? Find a compact digital camera with the longest optical zoom range in its class

  1. Your best digital camera purchase (under Rs.1000/$ 200) will be the best point-and-shoot camera you can find selling for about $ 189-$ 199. Here’s how: Go to a large electronics store in your area that sells many brands of digital cameras. Tell the sales person that you want to buy the best digital camera that sells FOR NO MORE than Rs.1000/$ 200. Tell the sales person that you are most interested in digital cameras made by Nikon or Canon, maybe Sony, maybe Olympus – but that you’re mostly interested in cameras made by Nikon or Canon. Tell the sales person that you want a camera that has about 12 mega pixels (mp), but NO LESS than 10 mega pixels.

    The sales person will show you all the cameras in your price range. Ask the sales person to explain which cameras are the best in your price range AND WHY. The reason you must keep repeating the price is because the sales person will try to get you to buy a more expensive camera. If this is your first digital camera (yes/no?), you DO NOT want to buy an expensive camera; buying a more expensive camera comes later when you’re certain that “art photography” is really something you want to do. Right now, you want the best point-and-shoot your money can buy.

    Extra things you will need to buy: a good-sized memory card (2GB or more) for the camera. Most memory cards that come _with_ the camera are much too small for serious photographers. Next, a sturdy leather holster that _securely_ holds the camera on your belt (if you’re a man) or fixes somehow to your purse strap (if you’re a woman). You DO NOT want to carry your camera in a pocket. You DO NOT want to carry your camera in your purse. But, if you seriously want to learn photography as an art, you DO want to carry your new camera with you ALL THE TIME. The camera holster and memory card will cost you another $ 30 to $ 40.

    FINALLY: It’s nice to have a digital camera to take pictures. But, if you want to become a serious photographer, you will soon learn that you DON’T “take pictures” because a serious photographer “MAKES IMAGES.” Learning the difference between “taking pictures” and “Making images” takes time, study, and effort. A good photographer’s best piece of photographic equipment is inside his head, not in his hands.
