Do I have a good/semi-good camera?

Hey peeps

I'm totally new to this site, and have no clue about photography but I would really love to get into it. I was wondering if you guys could tell me if I have a good camera because I have no clue.

I have a HP R607

well im a firm believer you can get into photography with any camera, i started a few years ago with a Gateway brand camera... and have just recently got more serious, and moved up to a nikon d70.

as long as you can change most of the settings on it, like exsposure time, and and white balance and ISO you should be able to get started and take some pretty good pics...

I started out with something similar a few years back (HP 812). They are good starter cameras. They can be had for pretty low prices and will produce decent images. It's just a basic point and shoot camera. I've always said that the trick to good photography is learning to take great photos on a camera that most people would considder subpar. It forces you to use good technique and that way you are that much better when you move up to a more advanced camera (and it helps out alot on the photoshop skills too lol).

Just use this camera to get the basics down, and move from there. Don't really expect to produce art gallery quality images though. Good luck!
