Thread: Need some digital advice for Architecture student...

    Default Need some digital advice for Architecture student...

    Hi all!
    I need some advice pertaining to digital cam purchases.

    One of my friend is an Architecture student, and he needs a digital cam.

    looking ard $1-1.5k.
    The only requirements that I think he needs are probably a wide-angle + fast lens....

    These are some of the options that I am looking at:
    Canon G3
    Olympus C750 (this is unreleased right?)

    But I was thinking that cams with superzooms suffer at the extreme ends of the focal length..

    So, recommendations anyone?
    Thanks!

    i would recommend the Nikon Coolpix 5000

    it has got 28mm wide angle inbuilt
    if not enough can always add a wide angle convertor
    has a swivel LCD to help compose shots in diffcult angles

    other models like minolta 7i or 7hi is out of the budget

    I would also say the Coolpix 5000 but with the WC-E68 Wide angle lenses. This will give you a 19-58mm zoom (35mm eq).

    Wide & Fast Huh?
    The C-5050 has a f/1.8 aperature at wide. the best so far, I have seen. (35-105)

    Sony's F717 has a f/2.0 aperature at wide, though it's wide is at 38mm (38-190)

    The 2 cameras has the fastest lens among the prosumers. A wide-angle converter will bring down the 35 or 38 to lower.
