Re: Best Camera For Under 1000

Posts: n/a
$1000 for everything? Figure the cost for extra memory cards, rechargeable
batteries, a card reader, and perhaps a case for the camera. Do you want
to shoot indoors without a flash or tripod? In that case, you need a camera
with a very fast lens. A Sony F717, Olympus C5050, Canon G3, g4, or G5
would fit that category. Only the C5050 takes AA batteries though. The
C5050 comes with a charger and 4 nimh rechargeable batteries. Extra
sets of AA nimh rechargeable batteries are inexpensive. The C5050
takes Compact flash(plus Smart Media and XD cards). The Canons
also take inexpensive Compact flash, while the Sony takes expensive
Memory Sticks. If you want interchangeable lenses, figure on raising
your budget to $2000 or more. The C5050 looks like a good choice
overall, except that the zoom is only 35-105 mm equivalent. The lens
is f1.8-2.6 though, which is great for shooting in low light.
