Default Camera for Street Photography

Looking to purchase my first Digital Camera and my interest is basically street photography. I shoot in black and white and prints are usually 6x8 and seldom 8x12. I also would like a camera that will take photos in low light without using flash. Thank you all very much for your help.

The Olympus C4040, 4mp, 3X optical zoom with BW mode. It has an excellent low light lens, F1.8. Turning off the flash in low light conditions may require a tripod.

Default Thanks Gibsonpd

Thank you for the info. The Oly seems to be exactly what I need. Fast lens and B&W mode. I checked out the auction site and quite a few for sale with special packages that seem to be almost giving the camera away. But then, I know if it sounds to good there has to be a catch . Thanks again, George

I have sold and purchased off ebay. There are some very reputable sellers. Check their vendor ratings.
