    Default Urgent help needed.

    Hi all,

    I got a budget of $1,000.

    Urgently needed to get a Digital SLR Camera for Company usage (group photo taking)
    Need to use both indoor and outdoor.
    Wide angle lens is needed.

    Any recommendation ?

    budget of $1k? sounds very very low for a DSLR+wide angle ... even if second hand. since so urgent, why not just employ a photog?

    the company get the quote already but not happy with the price ..

    asking me to get a good digitial camera (SLR) so that internal staff can do it in the future. .... sigh ~ ~

    hard time for employee.

    $1K for DSLR is tough .... but for P&S, $1K very good one.
    Talk to your boss, consider P&S lah ....

    can increase just like that one meh somemore 100% increase

    getting employee to double as photographer? sounds like exploitation of employee leh ... anyway that's your company's problem. so, does anyone in the company know what's involved in shooting with a DSLR?
