Default I have $1000 to spend. What camera should I buy?

Hi,

I am looking for the best all round camera in this bracket. Middle weight, but the one thing it needs is THE best pictures possible.

I am searching and searching, but really need someone with experience to push me in the right direction.

The camera needs to have a balance of weight and size, pixel number, image quality, professional features and availability.

regards

Default Don't forget...

... that you'll probably want to set aside $150-200 for:

- extra batteries and charger
- more memory cards
- decent camera bag
- memory card reader
- maybe a photo printer

Hyun has a valid point in that their will be some additional wants when you enter the digital world. I am going to recommend the Olympus C5050 for the following reasons:

f1.8 lens
5mp
moveable lcd panel
photo assist lamp
meida supports compact flash, smart media, xd picture card, microdrive
Auto and manual functions
hot foot for external flash
Internet prices at www.buydig.com is $577 see link below:
