still i'm not in position to decide what is suitable to buy. Can you help me with your knowladge about those cameras ... good orno-good or some others that you know (let keep up to 450 eur):

1. fuji s7000

2. canon s2 is

3. kodak z740

4. nikon 5700

5. olympus c-770



I really want to have solid zoom (not less than 5x optic). If there is a model that later with additional money i can add *equipment* for better zoom suggest.

awaiting for your comments according to the models that i'm thinking of....thanks

Of the cameras you listed I would take the Canon S2 hands down. It has a long stabilized zoom that maintains a good aperture, it is quick, has a good movie mode and has been highly regarded by the reviewers.

Stabilization lets you shoot in many conditions where you would need a tripod without it. That applies to long telephoto shots in less than bright sunlight and to available light shots at wider angles.

no i did no consider Sony because everyone says mind only Canon or Nikon and since the Nikon costs a lot i must mind the Canon.

I also consider the Canon pro 1 but they told me is costs a lot but the quality is not good as the price...do not know that...

and also considered the Fuji s2 pro. the price is ok but about the quality no one told me anything.

what do you say........................

Zakd-

I agree with Slipe. If it must be a fixed lens digital camera, then the Canon S2 is the best choice. However, you must bkeep in mind that the S2 has had more than a few negative comments about the S2's image quality.

For the long haul, you might do better opting for a lower price dSLR, such as the Pentax 1stDS, or the K-M 5D. Youb would have much better optical performance and the ability to switch lenses.

It could be hard to find low-price SRL camera from Pentax here... i will seek for information but unless i find it i must keep with mentioned ones. on the other hand have you ever used Canon s2IS or Canon pro 1 or Fuji s20 pro..... are they good for enthusiastic amater....

I ussually need good camera for offset printing preparation for format arround B2 or 50cm x 70 cmm.

Now i must ask maybe a stupid question but:

about digital SLR cameras. Why there is no optic zoom... can you use zoom at all. I'm no familiar with this kind of cameras and do not see in what they are better than clasical dig.cameras.

which is the lowest price model with good picture quality.



thanks
