If you are looking for any of the following features in your next camera you should take a look at purchasing a real digital SLR:
reliability; the bodies of a SLR almost never fail; point and shoot cameras, by comparison, are built for light weight and low cost and easily break large, bright, accurate optical viewfinder decent quality photos in low natural light, e.g., indoors without blinding everything with flash the ability to attach specialty lenses, e.g., very wide angle lenses for interiors, scenery, and architecture, or long telephoto lenses for sports photography
Accessories You may want to purchase a lens cleaning kit.
You will definitely need at least one memory card. Most of the compact digital cameras take SD cards. If you are taking JPEG photos rather than RAW, you\’ll be able to fit between 250 and 500 images in a 1 GB card.
1 GB SD cards: SanDisk 2 GB SD cards: SanDisk 4 GB SD cards: SanDisk (good for a long trip into a remote area where you can\’t copy images to a computer) Personally, I have found that it is more convenient to use a single memory card for an entire project or trip rather than juggling multiple cards.
If you want to keep the camera on your belt, consider a small padded case. Lowe and Tamrac are generally the highest quality brands. The manufacturers\’ own brand cases are generally the lowest quality.
Tamrac publishes a useful fit chart. Lowepro\’s is a huge PDF.
Tamrac Ultra Compact Tamrac T17 Tamrac Digital 1 (slimmer digital cameras, plus extra pocket) Tamrac Digital 2 (compact cameras) Tamrac Digital 3 (SLR-like) If you have time and a good local shop, it is best to buy the case in person so that you can make sure you like the fit.
