    Can i add my 2 peneys? I have had a Kodak DX6490, great starter camera, but only 4MP, takes some great pics, quick and easy to learn, nice LCD display, robust, mine took a few nocks, its just a great camera it has 10X optical zoom and this can be added with additional lenses, and it also accepts filters for the more creative user and it also has all the manual settings a starter would need. I have now got a nion coolpix 8700 which is 8.1mp i think, again great camera, but a difficult and challenging learning curve to get the best out of it! basically, pays ur money take ur choice, personally i wouldn’t go for a digital SLR if your just coming in to things

    I'm afraid that I'll blow my savings on a prosumer digital camera and then be left in the dirt of some newer, cheaper more effective model.

    if you buy a prosumer model like nikon D50 or D70(s) or
    Canon 20D or 350D you will be satisfied.
    in some years all prosumer models will contain a fullframe sensor.
    my tip to you is to buy a camera now.

    I recommend Canon as well. One thing that's cool about them is their digital SLR's and point&shoot cameras both use the same "Digic II" processor that's really good... I've got a tiny "digital ixus" and a $2000+ D20 setup and they're both great (in their own way of course )

    I can afford a D70S, but is it a vast improvement over a D50?

    I'd reccomend the Canaon 20D. It recently dropped in price with the release of the Canon 30D (which is a minor improvement over the 20D - it has the same sensor and same megapixels. There are differences but they arent that major)

    The 20D has a larger and sturdier body than the Rebel XT, and it has some more pro features. I'd reccomend the 20D for better longevity.

    ajaja, I love the pictures you've taken with the Canon20d, but it's pushing my budget a little. Most sites seem to be 1000-1300 dollars, without a lens, wheras I can get the d70s for that price including a lens.

    With this review in mind i'm leaning towards the d70s again

    It's very tricky.

    I went for the d70s. I got it today, and took a few test pictures. I'm very impressed so far!

    Wasp nice shots with d70s

    yea mines with a 20d.. i poured so much money for my gear.. i got 2 L lenses.. about a grand each.. i wont be buyin a nikon cam soon
    sometimes i think im in the wrong camp.
    im more of a color guy... after takin thousands of shots, u do notice the suttle differences with nikon and canon. even with post processing.. theres a difference.

    but its all up to u what do u want out of your shots. more color?.. less noise?..

    The 20d is a great camera but it may be total overkill unless you're either wealthy or very serious about photography. A lot of its potential is wasted if you don't spend a couple grand more for great lenses. One of those sub-$1K cameras with a built in 12x zoom lens and image stabilizer will be just as good for most people if not better as it'll be easier to use and carry around.

    Hello! Camera wise, for companies I recommend Cannon or Nikon
    For you a simple point and shoot with usb trans and can do photo effects Nikon coolpix 7600, I actually have one of these and am very pleased with it, mine is a 7.1 megapix with 7.8-23.4mm zoom, I baught extra memory, so I have a gig mem card (trigger crazy). Other then that go for something small, you can get a good deal on some of the 5-7 megapix cams, good luck!!!

    If you can get a DSLR > I know i am not going back on what i said before, after having one now there is so much more you can do with them. Stupid things that used to drive me crazy like shutter lag, and power on time are no longer a issue. Also just the way the camera feels. to go back here, i found the most anoying thing on Pro sumer, i think thats what there called... 1) ISO even the new fuiji that clames its the closest to a DSLR you can get the amount of noice produces at 1600 makes it unusable. (ISO is basicly the gain on the CCD) the higher the ISO the more light that will be regesterd so this help in dark conditions + you can increes the shutter speed with a high ISO so your less likely to get camera shake, 2) Power on, because the lence is allready there and attached there is no power on time, i flick the power butten and can take a picture in less than a second 3) Finaly shutter lag, there was nothing more that upset me than going to take a picture that was on the moment like my dog doing somthing stupid and actual getting a image whcih occurd a second after i wanted to take a shot...thats my 2p...

    Smile Does anyone own the Hasselblad CFH-39?

    I wonder if this digital back can produce a better image than Kodak T-Max 100 (120 film). I'll appreciate all inputs!

    It should, at that price!!
    Sorry I dont know, but I know that digital backs cant reproduce the same contrast range yet. The whitest whites and darkest blacks always have more detail with film. (so far)

    Thanks for the input. I'm planning to purchase the 503CW but haven't decided which film back to buy. I'm very familiar with black and white films so I prefer to use films rather than the digital one. However, since I live in a small town and have no access to a well equipped darkroom at this moment, I thought I might be better off with a digital camera. But as you suggested, the quality of the digital camera is still not as good as that of a film camera, even if you pay thousands of dollars for it.

    I wonder why the contrast range of a digital camera is still not wide enough.
