Default First Camera Purchase

I have done some basic research on the purchase of my first digital camera, helped by some previous postings on this site.

I would like if possible to buy a 5MP and am willing to wait until sometime between January and March 2004 to allow some price decrease.

The cameras I have been drawn to are the Sony Cybershot DSC P92 or the Sony Cybershot DSC P10. I can purchase these cameras for about 280 on the internet-Pixmania seems to be the cheapest.

1. Are these cameras likely to be around in March at an even cheaper price?

2. Is my choice a wise one for the price?

3. What are Pixmania like to deal with? I need to buy from a European company for warranty purposes.

4. What size in MB are each of the pictures on a 5MP camera?

5.Any other comments or suggestions welcomed.

Thanks

Bertie

I dont know the answers of all your questions, but...

1. nobody can tell the future! What's new today will be old tomorrow, so dont count on anything!!!

2. Sony Cybershot series is well known to most photo-freaks as a fine series, but...why not take at some other manufacturers ? Olympus, Nikon, Canon! Find out what you actually needs the camera to do for your...macro, wideangle, zoom etc. Feel free to take a look at my website under "digicams" to read what I think is important to a digicam.

3. dont know anything about that.

4. approx. 2560 x 1920pixels or 21 x 16 cm or 8.5 x 6.5 inches in 300DPI (good quality). You can print out a bit larger if you want.

5. Do yourself a favor. Dont "underbuy" - very important!

Good luck!
