- 帖子:4closeup, i guess, I've always wanted to shoot flowers and leaves, i don't think I can master the landscape well though I do appreciate its beauty. I want a digital camera, which is more convenient for me as a beginner. I think several hundred dollars would be affordable, above that...maybe wait till I prove that I can really have some skills. ^_^
- 所在地: 加州For this price, you can only afford a non-SLR (single lens reflex) digital camera. Non-SLR has a fatal shortcoming that the shutter delay is too long. Maybe you must wait for a second before the shutter is triggered but during this time, the butterfly you shoot may fly away already. Another 2 setbacks of a non-SLR digital camera are that the lens is not interchangeable and the aperture of the lens is too small.
A text book has the size of 10X8. Given the printer resolution of 300 DPI, you should have 10X8X300X300 = 7.2 M pixels for the picture. The camera capabile of doing that is definitely above your budget.
My recommendation is a Nikon D70 camera body plus a Tamron SP-90/2.8 macro lens. The lens is good for both close up and portraits. However, it is definitely more than you budget ($1200+). I have no way to recommend a cheaper solution that meets all of your requirements.

- 帖子:4r418mot, Thanks a lot! It looks I need to do more research on Digital Cameras, and increase my budget ^_^. I'll come and ask for more advice when I find a possible one, your help is greatly appreciated. Now, what are the good brands? Nikon, Canon, Minolta? Would you please comment on this?
- 所在地: 加州Nikon's lenses are noted for sharpness. Canon's lenses are famous for quick auto-focus. Nikon's medium to low end camera bodies lack the feature of mirror-lock-up (a feature to minimize the camera vibration). Canon's medium to low end camera bodies lack the feature of spot-metering (a feature used for accurate exposure). Nikon's low end digital SLR has the problem of a little bit higher noise. Canon's low end digital SLR has the problem of poor auto-focus accuracy. Minolta's film SLR camera bodies have the best performance-price ratio (however, Minolta's good lenses are expensive). Minolta's first digital SLR will have the body vibration reduction feature but it won't be available until the end of the year. Therefore, I cannot say which one is better than the other. It all depends on what you want to play with.
In my opinion, if you want high resolution and fast autofocus is not important, go with Nikon; if you want fast autofocus, go with Canon; if you want to play around with special features, go with Minolta (you must wait for about half a year though).

If you don't go digital, then N or C doesn't matter.
If you go digital, and you don't own any Nikon lens, then there's no question to go with Canon. But if you own some Nikon lens, then you have to go with Nikon.成功驾驶学校
