    Ok, so I've been using my friend's digital cam lately, cuz it takes pretty good pics. I've been a novice wildlife photographer for awhile now, and I've decided that I need something better than a digital camera (blurry pics way too often) and better than the regular ass camera I have now. So, people, what would you recommend that I get? I'm trying not to spend more than a couple hundred dollars. I appreciate any and all help here. Thanks guys! :cool:

    Probably a camera you can stick a long lens on.

    I dunno what you can do with a couple hundred dollars :o

    you need a pretty LONG lens to cover wildlife, depending on where you're going to be shooting.. i don't know if you'd be able to afford it for a couple hundred dollars..

    even with a BIGMA (50-500mm), you'd be running in the 700-900 range with just the lens (used-new)

    then the body, you'd have to get a body.. film or digital to match the mount of the lens :dunno:
