I'm looking for an SLR camera that's user friendly for a beginner. Possibly one that has an automatic feature so if I feel overwhelmed with settings, I can always revert back to just "pointing and shooting". Is there even a camera out there with both SLR and point and shoot features?
I've always used a point and shoot and generally been OK with how my pictures turn out. But as I navigate through the internet, I see so many cool effects on pictures (i.e. crisp picture of subject with background out of focus, action shots, etc) I now want to learn to use an SLR camera.
Any particular brand/ models/ etc that you can recommend? TIA.
