You're photos are beautiful! What camera would you recommend for a beginner? I like to take photos occasionally, took a lot this summer but I did it all with my phone ^^;

Thank you very much!

I started out with with a Canon 450D years ago. It was a typical "beginner camera". I am not sure what REALLY would be the best camera for a beginner now, but I feel like Fujifilm's X-T1, X-T2 or X-T3 might be good. The reason is that they have physical dials for the 3 big functions cameras have, ISO, shutter speed and aperture (aperture is on the lens actually). And they all have a big red "A" on them. If you just set them all to the A then the camera is in fully automatic mode. Then as you get more comfortable with the camera you can start taking manual control over one of them and see how they affect you images. 

You can of course do that with any camera, but most of them hide those functions in menus or behind buttons. In my mind having physical dials for those functions would make it easier to learn. Not 100% sure though =P

Ultimately you'll learn with any camera if you just spend time with it.

BTW I use an X-T2.

Thank you for the info! I've looked at a website and they also say that Fujifilm X-T1 is a beginner camera, so I'll look a bit more into that :D

Technically, Fujifilm markets the X-T1 (and 2 and 3) as their top of the line cameras (I think). Not counting the medium format cameras they also make. They have cheaper versions of the X-T series of cameras called X-T10, X-T20 and X-T30. The reason I didn't talk about them earlier is that they dont have the same dials as the XT1 series. And in my mind would maybe not be as good to learn the basics of a camera with.
