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. :D 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. :D 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

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:

You're welcome! It's a fantastic camera for the price. I really enjoyed using it, and still keep it on hand if I don't want to lug around my DSLR and lenses :)

I use a Canon Rebel XTi. It is mostly housed in a watertight housing so I can take photos underwater. This seahorse is the size of a grain of rice. It was taken with a 60mm macro lens.



Above water I took this photo with a 70-300mm zoom



This camera is lightweight, compact, and has great lenses you can add to it. You won't be dissapointed in one like it.

When it comes down to it, it really has to do with what you prefer working with. Most of the professional photographers I work with, work with Canon. I myself have always worked with Canon(I do have a small portable Samsung). I have had the chance to try out a few different cameras but I find you tend to get more for you buck when purchasing from Canon.

Here are a few shots taken with my Canon. Unfortunately my action shots are at home so I can't directly load them here, but here is the link to the most recent ones I have.

Almost all under saddle photos:

I have the Canon Rebel.
I have my computer up and going so here are just a couple of the shots I've gotten over the last 2 years that would be a good demo of some of the things the camera can do.
