im looking at getting a new digital camera. as my old one is crap as.

after playing around with a few im not sure where to go.

ive been looking at some of the ultra slim ones they look good but not sure if they will compare to the bigger black ones.

ok guys after spending a bit of time looking at cameras.


i have decided i like the looks of this camera

Sony Alpha A200 Digital SLR Twin Lens Kit (XG3931) - Dick Smith Electronics - Australia.


anyone know where i can get a cheap camera. or anything in this rough price range that would compare with this camera. thanks alot
Haydz, wait a bit and buy the new Canon 500D, I am sure the kit will be around the $1100 Mark, but is basically a mini me of the 50D, has live view, new sensor, HD recording etc. Well worth the money.

I'm looking at getting the 450D twin lens kit for about $1400 so how can you get the 500D for $1100? What shop would you recommend? I was looking to buy around the end of financial year period to get it cheaper so maybe around the $1250 mark. Would you recommend the 450D as a starters camera?
