Right, a tricky question.

My daughter has decided that she would like to take up photography. She's just had compact cameras up to now.She's looking to do landscapes, architecture and "a few sneaky ones of people ", think she means "Street".
She's a intelligent young woman who will learn very easily. She's OK to spend around the £600 mark.

So, go on then.

Which camera should she buy?

As long as she buys Canon she will not go wrong... ha

But would make sense to buy Nikon as you can then share your knowledge & equipment etc.

Hi Mike

I would recommend the D5500 with the 18-105 lens.

I would agree with all before. A 50mm prime for street,you don't want to be to obvious if you are trying to get candid shots.
