I can see there are a lot of pro-digital-cameramen on B&B. I've currently got a point&shoot waterproof camera [Pentax Optio w10] bought primarily for use while kayaking. It also works well out of the water (SOTD pics ), but I'd like to get a high end DSLR or similar camera. Keep in mind that I would consider myself a true novice when it comes to photography.
I have no idea where to start.
I'm soliciting recommendations on what to buy and what I'll need for a total kit to be able to take awesome outdoor photos, get creative with things, and of course: take my SOTD and other shave-related pics.
