I am really "taken" by the beauty and slight "surrealistic" nature of High Dynamic Range photography. I am a novice but would like to purchase equipment that I can grow into (not have to replace for a few years). On say a $3000 budget, what cameras and lenses are recommended for this type of photography? I will probably look at refurbished cameras and lenses. Any thoughts on the SonyA77 for this? Is a Canon 60D good for this? And which mid-range Nikons are recommended?
(I'll need to leave a little room to purchase Photoshop and Photomatix, maybe a used MAC computer to boot).
Thanks to all who respond.
