Over the past couple of years I have been bringing my camera to school ( I am a teacher ) and using it to get some photos for the school. I must say that it has been a great place to practise taking shots as there is always something going on and usually in a range of different lightings. The school community (The boss in particular) have been really happy to have some "good" photos of the kids. Before I started photos were taken on cheap P&Ss.
Now the Boss has thought that the school should invest in their own camera. So... What are the suggestions? I suppose the criteria would be in order;
1. Cost effectiveness (it is a public school after all)
2. Needs to be able to take photos in a range of light, low light photos are a must.
3. Relatively easy to use. Myself and a few others have DSLR experience but some do not.
Basically I would love it if the school bought a D3S with a range of lenses.. but that is not really practical and P&S just don't cut it for the needs of the school.
