With people on different budgets, I feel that many new Nikon DSLRs and lenses are out some people’s price range. That means buying used equipment for many. I myself use a secondhand Nikon D200, which cost me £80. I would like to see a review of older Nikon cameras, which are in lower price brackets, along with older lenses. Sometimes, buying secondhand is the only way for many of us to keep our photography hobby going. Much as I like your magazine, I think it could do more to include hobbyist photographers on a budget. I’d like to see a monthly article, entitled ‘Bargain basement’, or similar. Nowhere in your comparison articles does it mention realistically cheap prices, when we all know these things are out there. I see, in N-Photo 73, there is a comparison of roller bags. Nowhere does it mention equivalent bags from B&M Bargains for about £40. Whilst I understand you may not want to endorse such products, these are the products that the public are using and are perfectly acceptable in most cases. You can always put up a disclaimer that you take no responsibility for the quality or longevity of said items. David R. Davies via email You’re totally right in saying that many photographers don’t have the budget for expensive kit. While we don’t do any outright tests on older gear, we do feature ‘Secondhand Superstar’ in the Nikopedia section (see page 89), which highlights classic older kit that’s available for a fraction of the price of new kit. There’s also the Buyer’s Guide (p 124) that covers a range of kit at several price levels. Also, the Nikon Skills section often includes budget-friendly photo projects, such as Abstract close-ups ( N-Photo 73) , Make your own Lightbox ( N-Photo 74) or Show some artistic flare (see page 40).
