Need help on picking a camera for Distant scenery photo taking


Sep 23, 2017
Hey Guys, I have recently come up with a plan of travelling and visiting famous mountains around the world and would like to purchase a camera to take photos for each mountain I set foot on... I have never learnt any knowledge about photographing and the only devices I have used for photoing so far is smart phone ( lol )...

Could anyone please suggests me a good camera??? I am looking for a camera meets the following requirements:

-Price not exceed $2000 AUD
-Suits for distant scenery (As I will take photos on Mountains for the viewings of course.)
-Easy to use. (I am not very good at computer and rather not to do any further work after the photos are taken. e.g. PhotoShop)
-Good mobility (Don't feel like to carry a big/heavy camera when climbing).

Really appreciate for any good suggestion!!!

It's not the camera, it's the lens.
Every proper dSLR camera made today, and most all of the micro 4/3rds ones, are more than you will ever be able to use. You want a long lens.
Now, having said that, go to a local camera shop, or best buy or something, and hold/test out each camera. The one that feels best in your hands will be the one you will go to always.
