To make a long story short:
I'd like to get a decent professional-ish digital camera. What brands/models do you use/recommend and why?

To make a short story long:
I've been applying to grad schools the past few months, all of which are outside California. If I get into any of them, I'm essentially going to be moving away from everyone I know, potentially to the other side of the country. I've never lived by myself before, and I've never lived outside of California for more than a few weeks at a time. My thinking in the midst of all of this is that if I'm going to more or less upend my life in one fell swoop, I might as well document it all properly, and ideally learn to be a better photographer in the process. Trouble is, the only camera I own other than my cell phone is a cheap touristy-type one from like 2006. 

Primary use for me would probably be nature, landscapes, or cityscapes, that sort of thing. Price isn't really a huge concern right now since I'm looking around at the moment, but I'm all for saving money without skimping on function, so there's that I guess. Any and all info you've got to share would be welcome!

I've sorta got my eye on the Nikon D7100 currently, but I'm not locked in on that being the one I want, and I'd love some outside opinions. :D

Hi there! I'm a writer of sorts and a former employee here. If you've got site-related questions, fire away! If I can't help you, I'll point you toward someone who can. :]

I can only hope my luck extends the entire year. It's been questionable so far. :laughing:
