    Default Advice on buying camera

    hi,
    I am looking for a good digital camera.

    - at least 5mp
    - high optical zoom (>3x)
    - full control eg. shutter priority, aperture priority, manual, etc.
    - swivel type LCD
    - preferably SD storage
    - uses AA size batt
    - 100% viewfinder
    - budget < $1K

    Can anyone help to list some possible brand/model? Tks.

    Go for the Canon S2. It has almost everything you have listed as above!

    What you just described is the Canon S2 IS digital Camera.

    Go for it. You will not regret.

    Cheers....

    If you want more choices other then the S2 IS, look at the range labelled "dSLR-like Mega-zooms".

    Cameras in this category include the Sony H1, Lumix DMC-FZ30, Dimage A200 and the Coolpix 8800. These cameras will meet most if not all the criteria you've set.
