    Default Prosumer Cameras

    Any particular model that is reputable and good in general?
    Having expensive gears do not make you a better photographer. Period.

    EOS5D & D200 are considered prosumer?

    I was thinking somewhere along the lines of Panasonic FZ-30.

    Same here.. Prosumers i was thinking along the lines of S3IS, FZ-30 etc..
    I think S3IS is pretty good, considering lens quality, the IS, and the zoom

    Canon S3 IS is pretty good all round.
    Or the Sony offerings, the DSC-D series.

    Personal preference
    ex F-series and current R-series.

    Actually, if you can find a Konica-Minolta Dimage A2 (not A200) with grip, at a cheap price, it's worth considering. Think I've seen someone selling on Buy/Sell.

    I still think that the panasonic FZ-30 has the best quality lens among all prosumers.

    get a entry level DSLR lah. worth the price. soon u will grow out of a prosumer already. then hard to sell prosumer also. cos i feel a prosumer is neither here nor there....

    prosumer, sorry, okie i think prosumer cameras are going down in sales as entry level digital single reflex cameras (SLR) as falling in prices.

    Not too sure what is your taste to a good camera, more zooms, pixels, anti shake features? what do you use it for and budget?

    i actually used camera with anti-shake, its not as fantastic as you would believe to be. i jus saw a 3month old D50 full set selling in BnS for a must buy price... I think it cost as much as a prosumer.

    After using my D70s, I cant get use to a prosumer... haa haa....the weight and the grip.

    well, u see lah, a DSLR will cost more in terms of accessories. but it goes a longer way.
