    Shaky image thru the viewfinder??? Where did you get that info from? Which cam did you try?

    Nah, he's right... You can't see the SSS kick in in the viewfinder, so whatever camera shake is introduced by your coffee-fueled hands will be visible in the VF.

    Thank god that my hand shakiness is not that bad that I see 'shaky' images thru my viewfinder and 'hoping' to get a good shot. The image stabliser in my cam body has served me well enough and so far I managed to get shots of sunset without a tripod.

    Erm... in the first place, you want a "easy to use (point and shoot kind)" for "occassional events". Thus is it wise to jump onto the (D)SLR wagon? Especially considering that you're jumping direct from a P&S. Do note that mastering the use of SLR to produce "beautiful pictures" will take time and effort, something which I don't feel coming from your post (or maybe I'm just too dense to feel it. ).

    So my little advice is to think it through, whether it's worthwhile to be spending the money on a SLR (since you mentioned you're on a tight budget), or get a new P&S/Prosumer instead.

    If you're still convinced on getting a SLR, there's plenty of advice to go around here on CS.

    Need some suggestion from you guys over which camera I should go for...

    Have a few cameras that I've zoom down to:

    Canon 400D
    Nikon D80
    Olympus E510 (4/3 system)
    All these have about the same IQ. Just a different aspect ratio used (3:2 and 4:3)

    I'm looking for a camera that is mainly easy to use (point and shoot kind), landscape and the occasionally events namely PC shows where I can take beautiful pictures. Budget is a major factor for me, so I can only get second hands .

    I've read the reviews from dpreview for these cameras but I'm still not sure which is better. Therefore need you guys to help me identify which camera I should get. Thanks!
