What exactly are you going to use the camera for (i.e. indoor, outdoor, landscape, all around use, etc.) and how large do you want to make prints and with or without the ability to crop?

Default camera

i guess i want it for all around use, but i want it to take nice pictures as well(somewhat professional looking i suppose), probably no less than 3.0 mega pixel i say.
btw, you know of any good place to buy it from?

thanks for the reply

Sorry to sound harsh but hter emust be dozens of cameras to choose from. Narrow down what is important to you (as in really narrow down) and we'll make a few suggestions.

My personal favorite for all around use is the canon a70. It is 3mp and takes great pictures, has an af-assist for those low light photos, uses aa's and cf, can take add-on lenses and it has the ability to be point and shoot or full manual.

Oh, I forgot to mention, according to this thread, http://www.stevesforums.com/phpBB2/v...ic.php?t=10982 the a70 is hard to find at electonics stores due to high demand. Therefore I'd suggest going to www.bhphotovideo.com if you decide to get the a70.

thank you all.
i think i would like a camera with a stronger flash, can take videos as well( i know this is suppose to be a camera, but videos can come in handy sometimes), and perhaps a good look as well.
I am not sure how things work, but i will like to get one with a slower reaction time as well. I am using sony P5 right now and i always miss cool shots because it takes so long for the camera to focus and react.
