    For mac, final cut express takes the cake and it only cost below $400. (If you have an old video cam, you can get the slightly older version at below $200 (ie without the latest hardware support).

    For a simple slide show, actually the latest mac OS version (10.5) of "imovie" has alot of great improvements. You should try it out first. Its much more easier to use than final cut.

    Go to IM at Funan. They would have the expertise to advise on the mac products. If you need discount, letmeknow.


    For windows environment, ulead has some great bundles as well.

    You can either use Windows Movie Maker in Windows Vista itself or download Photo Story. Both are products from Microsoft.

    I am using Sony Vegas with a STILLMOTION plugin from VASST for some cool, ala KenBurns effect, on my PC. For mac, I used to do it on iMovie.

    Honestly, you owe it to your good self to try out the latest version of imovie. It really is simple to use. Once you learnt imovie, go for final cut. Many videographers swear by fcp (with a macpro of course!)

    Otherwise, you can always outsource the slideshow as a paid project to prosper the brothers and sisters here. Any takers?
