Hello wonderful community!
I was directed by @noenken (thank you) to create a new post as I should get more visibility with it. I’m in the market for a new (to me) camera in the cheaper range. I have experience with using a Canon T3i and definitely enjoyed it. I have some thoughts on what I would like to pursue (astrophotography and landscape mainly), but I’d like to start out with something that’ll last me. I am not looking for anything professional, but I would like to be a hobbyist/enthusiast. Having a DSLR or mirrorless camera appeal to me the most but I am open to all options. For the past 6 months or so I used my Nexus 6P as my main camera and loved it, but I have since needed to sell it and want some high quality pictures still. Whatever you can give advice on or recommend I will take into consideration. Thanks for reading and I’m looking forward to your help!
