    Hello, Kiang. A warm welcome to you.
    Hmmm... you have ask a difficult question which unfortunately can only have one answer- from yourself.
    Read around this forum by entering the names of your potential camera in the Search button.
    Then make your own decision.

    Hmm.. if I were you I would want to go for a compact pns that have manual PASM modes. That way I can learn the basics of getting the correct exposure. A good zoom range is also desirable to practice different types of composition.

    1. You should be looking in the Nikon Marketplace section.
    2. We have gallery sections for a reason.

    try a semi-SLR first, pickup the advance technic like aperture mode, shutter mode, program mode and last the manual mode. Maybe next time you like me found out that the cam not fast enough to capture what you want and head toward DSLR, hahaha......I learn all my stuff from there play and play, take and take. My first cam was semi_SLR canon A80 i remember. Play until the camera spoil. :P

    these are more commonly known as prosumers. canon has a few..S90(latest one), G11. Panasonic has its LX-3, etc...

    best is to go to places like courts/HN to have a hands on feel of these cameras to decide which one u one.. feature-wise.. most are the same..
