I am a new to photography and planning to get one for CNY and overseas trip. My main concern is that I don't know which to get
1) A710 IS, S3 IS, G7 or 2nd hand 350D these are what I am considering.
2) My initial thought was to get A710 or S3 as a kick off before moving on to dslr. I read a few post in CS saying that these 2 are good enough for scenery and potrait but there are also very negative feedback in dpview on this 2 cam. Flash lag, low resolution, flimpsy back cover and etc..
3) My friend who is a photographer advice me to get a G7 or 350D if I really want to obtain the good quality. But I feel that G7 is quite costly and receive a few of negative feedback also. Many people here says that 350D is good for entry lvl dslr but is it too bulky to use for normal events like gathering and graduation party? I hope to get some advice before I place my money on it.
