    It really is a matter of what you will be shooting, so mainly it's a matter of personal preference. But as far as good lens for the money, the kit lens with the 40D is fine for many uses. But if...

    Finally made the leap into dSLRs with a Rebel XTi and 17-55 f/2.8 lens.

    It was half-baked thinking on my part. I was reacting to how I found I could not use my older manual focus Nikon lenses with any dSLR Nikon short of the D200 (well technically you can, but only if...

    No, not at all, and I'm sorry if I came across that way. It's just that the more I thought about the topic, the more I saw shortcomings (at least to me) to the current dSLR format/feature set that...

    Perhaps so, but they could be useful for shooting sports action, when it's easier to follow the subject if you're able to use a bit of your peripheral vision. So having the option of using it, or...

    More to the point of LCD screens taking the place of SLR viewfinders, why don't dSLRs allow you to use the LCDs on the backs as a viewfinder? Certainly it's technically feasible with little...

    I don't think so. Maybe a few years ago but not now. The z80 can't run Windows XP or a lot of other programs that some would regard as essential, like Adobe Photoshop. The better analogy right now...

    It's not obsolete until you can't take pictures, store and display them anymore. But you can easily be tempted by the ever-spiraling progress of the technology. Today's 10 mpxl dSLRs, some with...

    Having gone thru this decision process recently myself, let me ask you: Do you really need/want a dSLR? I was an avid enthusiast with my Nikon F3 and had a bunch of lenses for it, but the small...

    One of the advantages of the dSLR is the ability to fit lenses of much higher quality and range than those found on digital point n shoots. For lots of general photography, modern PnS's are really...

    Nikon D200

    If you're old to photography like me (still have my F3), you probablyl have a lot of manual AI lenses that would only gather dust if you got anything less than a D200. While the lenses would still...

    You should check to be sure, but I believe the charger that comes with all of these cameras is a "world" version in that it can be used w/110v or 220v. All you need is the plug adapter for the...

    It does have a "Kids and Pets" mode that is supposed to be action oriented and seems to favor higher shutter speeds. It also has a multiple frame mode that takes pictures one right after the other,...

    The S70 will take slightly better pictures but if you want/need a camera that you can always have on hand to get that unexpected shot, the SD500 is the better choice. I previously had an S40, which...

    Take a look at the smaller models from Lowe Pro. I bought one for my SD300, the fit is good and it has a smaller compartment for a spare battery.

    Very nice pics! All done with an SD500, eh? It's a little early for an upgrade from my SD300 but wow, these are really nice.

    If movie mode is important to you, get the Canon SD300 instead of the S410. The newer chip in the SD300 also makes it very fast to shoot, both startup and between shots. Shutter lag is virtually...

    I just got the SD300, too, and think it's terrific. You will get a better deal later, as all cameras/technology eventually get outdated, but how much later is anyone's guess. Basically you can get...

    I went for the SD300. It's got a faster processor and more recent technology. It's also a bit smaller and more pocketable. Picture quality is very good and shutter lag is imperceptible.

    I'd sooner go with a Canon SD300 than an S500. You don't give up much if at all in picture taking ability and you get a smaller, lighter package with a later generation processor.
  21. What makes you think they have identical CCDs? ...

    What makes you think they have identical CCDs? The reviews I've read say that the SD200 has a 3.2 mpxl CCD and the SD300 a 4.0 mpxl CCD. So that's not the worry. For what you say you will use it...

    Have you considered the Canon SD300? 1 mpxl less but you probably won't miss it and the package is more robust than the Optio, at least that's what I concluded. 1st shot and shot to shot speed are...

    I don't know why a Canon Elph would be a bad idea for older people. The buttons are plenty big enough on the SD200 and SD300 cameras and the LCDs are big (2") and bright. Importantly, when you...
