I am trying to help my wife choose a camera she can use to take good interior design and decorating shots for a hobby blog she wants to start. Neither of us know anything about cameras but mirror less CSCs are looking fairly attractive for their lack of DSLR bulk. However which one should we choose, and what lens? The camera will ultimately be multipurpose (travel, photos of the kids...) but I am conscious of the particulars around interior photography, such as interior light conditions, window light glare, need for a wide angle lens for greater field of view, detail/ close up shots ( e.g. of particular objects in the home), ability to defocus for accentuating, etc. Ideally, we would like an optical viewfinder, manual dials on the top of the body, pop-up flash and manual focus on the lens barrel. The Nikon 1 V1 had the first of these features but not the latter 3, but was a good price at AU$900 (similar in US$) for a twin lens kit (including a 10mm to 30mm - good wide angle specs?) and the detachable flash, and I have seen some good reviews of it (not necessarily as an interior camera though). The Olympus OMD seems to reign supreme when we chat to salespeople but at $1400 for the single lens kit it is beyond our budget. Thinking of the Panasonic Lumix G5 or going without the optical viewfinder and opting for the GX1 to keep things closer to our original $800 to $900 budget, but then I am wondering if we don't just resign to a DSLR if it will mean better interior shots at the end of the day. So confused, so many numbers and jargon, but some clear advice would be awesome. Thanks heaps.
