Default Digital Camera's in the Australian $500 range...............

Does anyone here come from Australia, as I need some advice on a fairly good all rounder, that has auto and manual exposure, so I can take pictures of night scenes, and particulary lightning photos.
The camera I have at the moment is a kodak dx3215, and as I've found is ok for general pictures, but it just doesn't have this type of control..........
suggestions would be welcome........... :?: :|

Not sure of Australian pricing, but have you looked at the Canon PowerShot A40 ?

i ended up getting a canon powershot a30.
not too worried about resolution, as i don't plan to print, and if the most will just get standard prints.....
am impressed with the manual control, and it's actually not too bad quality..
thanx

The Olympus C4040 can be purchased on line for US $500. The olympus C4000 is $400. Both cameras can do auto and manual settings. You can also add filters, lens via a adapter tube.

He said Australian dollars ... $US500 is about $A950!!!

Bucko, you have NO IDEA how ripped offd Australia gets. I bought a Fuji 3800, with a telephoto lens, wide angle lens, 3 lens filters, battery pack and charger for a lousy $US490. That would be $1700 in OZ.

I did not what the currency exchange rate was and that is why I listed the prices indicating US $.

it's ok guys...to get an idea on us $ to the aussie $, you double the aussie $. our $ is really pitiful, and you us ppl could have a nice cheap holiday here! actually australia has a terriost alert on at present, and new zealand has warned nz'ers not to come to australia.....i think the reality, is that there are always dangers, no matter in the world you go. i went to nz in 91 and there were a lot of gang wars going on at the time.....and aussies never got warned about that did they
it's just common sense...
thanx guys
