I have a quick clarification question. How big is bigger? Are you talkin' prosumer? or professional?

I've got a Nikon D40, which I absolutely love!

PROS:
shoots RAW
has some weight to it
very clear info display
fast and quiet auto focus
shoots 3024x1998.

CONS:
only comes with a 18 - 55 mm zoom lens which can be slightly limiting.
is on the smaller side of the DSLRs.





A comment: With the smaller zoom lens, sharpness, depth of field, and color are a little harder to manage. If you know what you're doing, though, you can get super results. :)

Thanks :) !
What does everyone think about the Kodak DX6490 ?
I read a review, and heard it was pretty good, and what i mean by bigger is, just one of the more clearer crisper camera's. Usually you can't get that inless you get a photographer's camera lol :)

I am abit confusing but yeah,

I have a Kodak Easyshare Z915. KODAK EASYSHARE Z915 Digital Camera
I absolutely LOVE it. It shoots videos in HD, as well as takes pixel-clear pictures. With a lot of detail captured. It has various settings for different situations, such as museum settings(quiet, darker settings), iso settings, landscape, panorama(flawless!), sunset, water, anything you want to take a picture of, I wouldn't doubt it could do it. Considering all it does, it's not too pricy, average 200$ price tag.

Here are a few pictures from different settings and situations. =)

Low Light/iso setting


Flower/plant high detail capture


Quickshoot(high detail 10mp fast shutter speed)


Landscape


Equestrian, computer person, photographer, graphic designer...
I know who I am, who are you?

Nikon D5000

Love this camera. I haven't found anything yet that I don't like.
The one thing that this camera has that others don't is an articulating LCD screen - I find this very useful. It prevents the screen from getting scratched when it's not on use, and you can just flip it around when you need it so you don't get those nose smears haha.

And a photo that you have taken with it:
I'm attaching a few from different 'categories' if you will:

I agree with JustDressageIt on the Nikon D5000. I have a friend lets me use his sometimes, and it's great!

Here is an album I shot with my little point-and-shoot, it's a Panasonic Lumix DMC series camera:
Maishiara on deviantART
Everything on there is shot with it.
