    Erm, so? It's still capable of taking great pictures isn't? It received great reviews when it came out, is capable of taking wonderful pictures, and it's still the same great camera today...

    Check out thisthread , taken with a A40.

    i think you should get the A80. cool camera with nice functions to play around with, whats more canon now have promotion, free 128mb sandisk CF with every purchase of A80. If you wanna get it, make it fast, i think the promo ending soon

    Default budget cam?

    Hi! Get a cam with a flipout screen (like some of the canons and nikons) or a swivel lens (sony and nikon). Its great fun to take pix of odd angles and to take pixa of yourself when there's no one around. I got an old sony dsf55 and i totally love it!

    Prosumer cameras usually refer to cameras that offer flexible control over shutter/aperture settings, and usually with more then 3* zoom.

    All the major brands (Canon Fuji Olympus Sony Panasonic Nikon.....etc) have their own prosumer cameras. My personal preference is with Sony. Example of good ones in my opinion are the Sony F828 (8MP), F717 (5MP) and Sony V1(5MP). Sony's accessories like memory sticks and batteries may cost more, but their cameras offer exceptional sharpness and clarity in pictures.

    Price can range from $900-$1500 depending on the model. Cheaper prices can be obtained 2nd hand of course.

    2nd hand can be excellent if you know what you are looking for, know the market price, and know what you are doing. I shoot with a film SLR and 75% of my gear is second hand. You must realise that in photography, good conditioned second hand gear is a very good way to get top notch equipment at a fraction of the price you have to pay brand new.

    Just check out the buy and sell forum. You can often find good stuff (some still with the original manufacturer's warrantry left to run!) for around 60-70% of the brand new price. I don't know whether this is particular to Singapore or not, but when new equipment comes out (and this happens very fast for digital cameras but not so for film), alot of people who bought the old model then dump their old model to go for the new old, eventhough there's nothing intrinsically wrong with the old one. Of course, this is good for poor photographers like me...

    Very true. I use a Sony F717, bought it 2nd hand in perfect mint condition with all the original accessories, box, couple of months of warranty left at $800 when it was retailing at about $1500. You can get very good deals 2nd hand, but make sure you check the condition properly.

    $800 for a G5 and 256MB card seems to be a rather reasonable deal. G5 is a good camera too. F717 may be bigger, but the bigger zoom, Carl Zeis lenses are worth it. CCD Sensor size is bigger in the bigger camera too, and for sensor size, bigger is definitely better.

    Memory sticks may be more expensive compared to compact flash, but sort of on par with SD cards now. Eastgear carries 256MB MSpro (sandisk) at only $119 SGD!!
