    Hi guys

    Anyone know of some websites that have current reviews about cameras that
    are broken down by price etc that a search can be done on - was looking at
    the PC mag one but most reviews were done during 2004 - a year ago is a long
    time in this market.

    What am I looking for?

    Digital camera
    at least 6x zoom
    at least 4MP
    budget below $400 AUD
    Novice and amatuer use

    Any suggestions?

    Cheers

    You will probably need to spend a little more to include extra batteries and
    a couple of memory cards.

    I've always found www.dpreview.com good, too. My advice would be to read
    the reviews carefully, then read them again and then read them again;
    always bearing in mind the fact that the people who write them are
    walking on egg-shells, with their duty to be honest with their readers
    on one side and their responsibility to the manufacturers on the other.
    So *read between the lines*, no review on this site (or any review on
    any of the other decent review sites) is ever going to tell you 'don't
    buy this, buy that'.

    Regards,
    Nick.

    http://www.dpreview.com has the most critical reviews of the sites
    that I have found. For a camera shopper, this makes it a very useful
    site.

    http://www.steves-digicams.com is also pretty good. It has the
    advantage of posting reviews rather soon after a product is announced.

  8. The sites others have mentioned are the real bibles. If you want more of a
    quick-and-dirty decision tree, this one gives recommendations based upon
    prospective use of the camera, and/or megapixels, and/or price:
