I am looking to purchase a digital camera with the intent of gathering photo references for my paintings, which are mostly figurative works and portraiture (for the record, I would prefer to work with a live model all the time, but that is unfeasible for many reasons, not the least of which is the expense). I'm sure many of you here do this already and was wondering if anyone had any advice on which cameras might be best suited for that sort of thing. It would also be nice if, after its purchase, I could still afford to hire the models, buy art supplies, and, ya know, eat every once in a while. Looking forward to your suggestions, thanks in advance!
