Looking forward to get my first camera but not sure which is good to start my photography dream. A lot to learn and all your advice will be greatly appreciated. Prefer canon or nikon budget around $500 others welcome too but not too over budget.

Thanks

Thanks. Can elaborate more?? I personally like nikon maybe because of the brand but some told me that nikon will be better only for high end range. Most people advice me to get canon powershot because it is better for entry level

For your budget, you can look at the Canon Powershot A710IS. Offers a decent amount of manual control for you to experiment with. Another choice would be Fuji F30 for its good high iso image quality.

Thanks, I am also looking at this model. Like the manual controls which I think I will learn a lot from it

I see that on TV they always advertise on canon IXUS and nikon coolpix are they good for photography or just for fashion only?

that's merely advertising. some companies dont spend so much on promotion and advertising, but that doesn't mean they are no good (or better than the advertised).

If you want more control over your photography, forget about the IXUS. The Powershot A series would be a better choice.
