    Default Hi ! needs DC recommendation

    hi, been looking thru Clubsnap and some sites and was very attracted to the prosumer cams like nikon5700 and Sony f717 .
    but they are abit out of budget so i need help.

    the following are the criteria:

    Top priority : Good image quality (good resolution and colour)
    01. Budget? $600-700
    02. Megapixel count? hopefully 4, but if impossible, 3 also can do
    03. Optical zoom factor? not sure
    04. Size? Doens't matter
    05. Type of batteries used? Preferably cheap kinds, otherwise expensive but long live.
    06. Weight? comfortable enough for a guy
    07. Able to mount lenses/filters? Yes
    08. Manual controls required? Must !
    09. Auto-Focus Speed? with my budget , what can i expect ?
    10. What kind of pictures are you hoping to take? mostly nature scenes, best if able to take macro, snapshots
    11. 1st/2nd hand ? Both

    please give some suggestions.

    Btw, i'm sort of a beginner but dun want to get a super basic P&S cam.
    hope to get as much features as my budget can afford.
    Thanks in advance.

    At your budget range, I guess Canon A70 is an excellent choice.

    Get an A70 with a macro lens and an additional CF card. Within $700.

    Default Thanks ~~

    Hi all,

    thanks for the recommendations.
    but doesn't the A70 supposedly have some QC problems ? like problems with the LCD screen ?

    also i read that the A70 produces rather soft images. i prefer sharp images though...

    More comments from u guys please ~!

    cheers !~
