Heyo all!
Would appreciate any advice for a good digital SLR for prosumer.. Am thinking of getting it as a gift, but I'm not too well-versed with digicams cept for the general specs like megapix and digi/optical zoom so need help from the experts here :)

For starters, i'm looking at the Canon PowerShot S1 IS VS the Panasonic DMC-FZ10K. Any reviews? Or recommendations for other models/brands with a technology similar to the canon digic or panasonic lumix ones? Much thanks in advance!

check thru the forum threads, or go to dpreview.com or steves-digicams.com to get reviews on cams. :)

Errr... those are prosumer digicams, not DSLRs. Are you interested in prosumer cameras (e.g. Nikon 8700, Sony DSC828, Minolta A2 etc.) or DSLRs (e.g. Nikon D70, Canon 300D)?

It's really subjective. Different people look for different things. If your friend has a brand preference in cameras, get that brand.

Also, you have to consider your budget.

Starter for Digital SLRs are like Canon 300D and Nikon D70 in the range S$1800 - S$2200. If you're not really sure you need them then consider prosumer level Digicams. My recommendation would be Minolta A1, best value for your money.

If you want a long Zoom then go for FZ-10. IMO it's image quality better than S1 IS.

Hey, the Powershot S1 IS and Z10 are prosumers, not DSLRs.
A entry level DSLR (like Canon EOS 300D body without lens) will cost you about $1700++.

If it's a gift, you must be rich... :D
