    Greetings from the Pittsburgh area

    Hi all,
    Iím checking in from about 30 miles southeast of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Iíd name the town specifically but unless you live within 5 miles of me you wouldnít have any idea where I am. Moving on though I am coming back to photography after an 8 year hiatus due to my D90 being destroyed in a fire. I have missed having a camera around. Granted I have my phone and my dadís old Canon Rebel XTi which ironically survived the same fire it doesnít shoot RAW and it is hard to find batteries for it. Well Iím inheriting some money and will be getting back in to photography with a proper camera.

    Greetings and welcome! I'm closer to Philadelphia but was out as far as New Castle once. Nice to see a fellow Pennsylvanian on the forum!

    Welcome!

    Guidelines to adding a photo to your post.

    1. Resize photo to 1000px on the long side.
    2. Resolution set to 72ppi (Pixels Per Inch)

    These guidelines will be good for viewing on a computer but will not be good for printing. This will help safeguard your copyright.

    Well considering that I do have limited finances I am trying to narrow it down from the following Nikon models. The D610 or D750 because these will allow me to get 3-4 lenses, battery grip, spare batteries, and the SD cards are relatively cheap compared to cfexpress and qxd cards. I have tossed around the idea of the Canon R6 or the Sony A7 III but I just am not quite sold on their specs. I know these cameras are old models and old technology but their specs fit my financial requirements and are still quite capable of delivering the kinds of things I want. Iím primarily looking for a camera that will be a good jack of all trades type camera. Something that would be decent for taking pics at the Pittsburgh Zoo, doing some family portraits, taking pics at my nieces and nephews various sporting events, and a camera that would be great to take on vacation. I definitely want full frame and dual card slots for redundancy. Any thoughts or ideas on my choices or things I should consider?

    Welcome to the forum. Hope you enjoy it here. The DSLRS you are looking at are good choices. Reasonable prices for the bodies and lenses.

    if you are considering mirrorless the Z bodies are really good bodies if you listen to real reviews which excludes The Angry guy, T and C... husband and wife and the fro guy. The Z6II and 7II have grips and dual card slots... but they are more expensive than the 750

    Welcome!

    At this point in time you should seriously consider Z mirrorless. If you buy into F mount glass and in the future they stop making DLSRs you will be stuck using adapters. Do a comparison the Z5 to the D750. It has dual SD card slots and a battery grip is available, just not a true vertical grip it has not controls. Good luck with your photography whatever you choose.

    @Danno while you may be right about the mirrorless bodies they also use the xqd cards which if you paid attention to my previous post I said that I didn't want a body that utilizes those cards because of how expensive those cards are. Besides if I was truly to go mirrorless it would be with the Canon R6 it is a true powerhouse of a body and the sigma and Tamron lenses for the Canon EF mount adapt to it very nicely with the EF to RF mount adapters out there.
