I need some help/advice on picking a camera. I'm a bit of a novice trying to learn more about photography. I've had a Canon Powershot A20 for a couple of years. Decent camera, but it's limited and getting a little long in the tooth. I have looked at some of the on line review sites. And there are a bunch of them. I'm thinking of getting one of two cameras. Either the Nikon Coolpix 8700 or the Minolta Dimage A2. I think I can get either one for about $700 or so. I would appreciate any ideas or help. Thanks

Both are excellent cameras but read the reviews on the net for both of them and decide.

A2 has a Image stabilization system and 7X zoom.

CP 8700 has better photo quality and a AF assist illuninator and 8X zoom.

I will get the Nikon CP 8700.

There are several more sites for reviews but, I have another idea for you.

If you can afford it and if you want to learn more go for Canon 300D.

With a dSLR you will have more fun........

I jumped from CP 4300 to Nikon D70 and it's a realy fun, fun, fun......

Good luck my friend..............

if your budget is around $700, consider the "Canon EOS Digital Rebel". Great DSLR!!!

You can get it at Harmony Computers at $798
