Be a whole lot easier

Start at the start with a cheap SPC900NC or 840k ProII. If you aren't happy with imaging, then you haven't spent over $150 to find out. If you do want to advance onto a better but trickier camera, the 900 or 840 will make a great guide camera.

Just don't rush in and want the best, as the more advanced cameras come with more advanced learning.
