Hey /p/, I need some advice.
I'm building a website for a charity that builds houses in a 3rd world country. As part of the project, I'm going to be going along on the first build and getting pictures/video so I've got lots of current content.
What I have right now is a D3200 with the 18-55 kit lens and a 55-200. Neither is all that great, obviously. Since I'm financing this myself, I can't spend that much money (trying to stay around $200-$300) so I'm wondering if I should go after a better lens, or a better body.
Keep in mind, it's got to do video and stills in broad daylight and in relatively low light. The low light is where I've found the D3200 to really underperform, ESPECIALLY where video is concerned.
Thanks in advance for any advice. I will do my best to not be a defensive dbag.
