    Hi -

    Given the in-camera stabilization of the Olympus Pen series of interchangeable lens cameras, that should be a first choice. With adapters you can use all sorts of lenses (I use Nikon, Olympus...

    Hi -

    With that budget, Olympus E30 + 12-60 lens. The lens is extremely hard to beat and remains relatively small and light. If you need lighter, than an E620 with that lens.

    E30 experience...

    Hi -

    I generally use the equivalent of 300mm focal length (I'm an Olympus fan, but what I have to say applies in general). I use a robotic panorama head to achieve panorama nirvana, as can be seen...

    Hi -

    This one is self-contained and self-storing: the 30cm light tents have to be lit from outside. Been there, done that, my space constraints were paramount.
