Default Digital Camera

I have not seen any of the name brands that were not pretty dog gone
great if you want the truth.
Here is the long part of IT though. at the price of digital Single
Lens Reflex You really need to look into a new hobby and see if you
can read the how to manual enough to at least learn some of the little
things that go with the DSLR. You will find for well under a thousand
dollars you can buy a 6-8 Mega Pixel DSLR camera like Olympus Canon or
Nikon. PS Stay away from Minolta even though the prices look good they
are going out of business so no more Konica Minolta yes they had some
great stuff but I would not go there till the fallout hits. I spent
more 12 years ago for one of the first digital cameras than a car cost
nowdays. I mean 15grand for a 5meg kodak with a Nikon F5 body. that is
a little spendy.
Best of luck.

Sorry you don't like Sony. I use 5 Canon film cameras, but take a lot
of professional digitals with the little 7.2mp Sony pocket camera - No
complaints and can be viewed on TV and goes strait into PC through USB.

I think the best bet is to start off as simple and basic as possible. Just learn how to use a camera on manual and don't spend a lot.
