Welcome to MonsterFishKeepers.com

The members of this forum have come together to share our knowledge and experiences of fish keeping. We want to answer your questions, offer advice and fill the galleries with pictures of the fish we have all grown to love.

We are a unique community of Fish Keepers who seriously take our hobby to extremes and the NEXT level. The majority of our fish collections include RARE & EXOTIC Species of all sizes, BIG FISH with BIG APPETITES and BIG TANKS. It's not easy for most people or other "regular" fish keepers to understand why we maintain this type of collection and spare no expense on this fascinating hobby.

Hopefully, through this site and discussion forums we can encourage the next generation of Monster Fish Keepers to have the same passion and love we have for the hobby and our Monster Fish .

      So I am no longer happy with the photos I'm taking with my phone and looking to upgrade. Wondering what cameras y'all recommend for a "beginner"? Not looking for a several $1,000 set up but either a good point and shoot or a good basic set that can be upgraded and modified. Preferred price range would probably be $300-500.

      Nikon 3300, 3400 or 5300. The 5300 is a little older but still awesome. These are DLSR cameras and very capable performers.

      for $300-500 range you could get a nice entry level DSLR. You mention upgrading/modifying so a DSLR would be your best bet.

      You can get a starter kit of a canon T6 or a Nikon 3200 with lenses, bag ect for that price range, and check out Adorama's used section for a good deal.

      feel free to post idea's of what you find and i'll try to reply with my thoughts.

      I personally use canon, started with a Canon XTi Rebel years ago, upgraded to a 7D and now use a full frame 5D mk iii. I do a lot of event photography and nature photography.

      EDIT: now i realize the original post is over a year old. If anyone else needs advice i will be happy to help.
