    A dSLR is the way to go for your needs. Pentax just announced a big price break on the *ist DL, including 18-55mm kit lens, that lists for $599 now. Beach Camera is advertizing it for $540 or so....

    If you don't much care for the Fuji, by all means don't buy it. Both the FZ20 and the S2 IS are also excellent cameras. If you were to buy it over the internet at a reasonable cost, I would opt for...

    While I would generally agree with this list, if you really have to pay $100 more for the FZ20 than the S2 IS, and $100 more for the S2 IS than the 5200, I would suggest that the 5200 looks very...

    I would vote for the D50 with the 18-55 mm kit lens for a start.

    What you need to know about dSLRs is the conversion factor to convert to 35mm equivalent lenses. For the D50, this is 1.5. Thus,...

    You can get (a Nikon D-50 or an Olympus EVOLT-500) with a kit lens for the upper end of your budget if you shop the internet. Both are well-regarded cameras that will give years of use. You won't get...

    I know that with color film, you could get a bluish haze especially in high mountainous regions if you didn't use either a UV or a sky filter. Are digital cameras immune to the effects of UV in this...

    Not true. Both B & H and 17th Street Photo are absolutely above board. This is not just my experience, but that of everyone I have ever talked with about them. They are sometimes a few bucks more...

    I think a dSLR could be a mistake in this context. They require more care and feeding than a sealed box camera, and I would not expect that this environment would necessarily offer the care required....

    Creating an UZ lens is every bit as hard as ColdRain suggests. However, it's always tricky to declare a lens more or less limited than another, because there are many ways of measuring lens...

    Just a note on additional batteries for the FZ20. I got a PowerSmart replacement battery from Battery King for $12 + $4 s/h which seems to be every bit as good as the original from Panasonic. I use...

    I own and love the FZ20, but feel that it is important to mention one big hassle with the hot shoe usage. I use a Sunpak 383 (terrific inexpensive little external flash with good power). The natural...

    The Canon A410 will be under budget -- you can get a decent size SD card and still hit your $150 price point if you buy over the internet (or even at your local Staples). The 410 uses the Digic II...

    You might want to price something like the Olympus EVOLT E-500. I think you'll find that there is very little difference in cost between this and the Fuji S9000. It's true that you can load up on...

    The big differences other than number of pixels and cost between the 9000 and 5200 are: 9000 has a better wide-angle end to its range and the 9000 has a hot shoe for flash. The 5200 has noticeably...

    ColdRain has made many good points in his post. I would just add a few things:
    The FZ-20 has a hot shoe for external flash, while the Sony, Canon, and Fuji don't. It also has a remote shutter...

    It sounds to me like the Fuji S9000 might be a good fit for you. It has a wide angle lens (28 mm), which would be good for architectural photos, fast ISO settings (up to 1600, but it's noisy at that...

    Yes, it is readily visible. The S2 is notorious for this. But chromatic aberration is very dependent on the nature of the shot -- if you have sharp, high-contrast lines in the image. it will be...

    Certainly, if you like oversaturatied colors, Kodak is a contender. But that is one of the criticisms of the super CCD Fujis, too. My guess is that you won't be diappointed with either camera. The...

    James' advice seems sound to me. But also consider the fixed-lens Sony DSC-R1. Here's a preview worth reading: http://www.dpreview.com/articles/sonydscr1/
