I'm intending to get myself a new camera on upcomming comex show for my holiday trip later this years; i've limited knowledge on camera and the price, but i love photography and like to pick it up. I l also went to megatex for a preview and to update myself.
initially, i'm looking at canon s90 because of its size and good review i read online; however, i notice in megatex some dslr are comparable, even cheaper in price to canon s90, namely sony alpha 290, and olympus e450.
What would you all recommend, get myself a s90 (or alike like samsung ex1) or entry level dslr? I dun mind, in fact prefer carrying a bigger camera, however, i have no intention of upgrading/ buy new lens. In term of handling, i try all three and a few other models, i find it acceptable with no prefer model.
If i dun purchase new lens and using it mainly for my holiday trips with the default len, its better to consider non-dslr, in term of quality will it be the same? In term of price, which is worth more. Experience and handling knowledge isn't important because whatever i get, i'll learn to use.
