Hi,

I initially bough a P100 but found it didnt have enough zoom. So I am weighing some of the options such as the Sony F828, the Canon 300D and theMinolta Dimage A2. Essentially I'd like at least 7x zoom and good image quality.

Any advice is appreciated,

Thanks

Shankar

Can you explain what type of photography you will be doing? You are talking a couple different animals here. The Canon 300D is a DSLR, not a 'prosumer' camera. Telling everyone how you want to use the camera and what, beyond 7x zoom is important will help them assist you in deciding if you need a DSLR or not. Also, what type of budget were you looking at?

Hi,

John, Thanks for your reply. A bit of background: I am essentially an amateur. The cameras that I have used before are the Canon AV-1 and the SonyP100.

My requirement isto shoot nature, city scenes, architecture and people. My total budget is £ 500 (+/- 10 %).

Regards

Shankar
