 Hi,
 
 As  you  are  in  Mumbai,  may  be  you  should  visit  JJ  Mehta.  They  have  some  reputation.
 
 They  carry  the  Sony  model  you  mentioned  and  the  Panasonic  model  that  Rahul  mentioned  (at  least,  its  there  on  their  website).  They  carry  both  Nikon  and  Canon  Digital  SLRs  too.

 Hi  Ame,
 
 I  was  expecting  you  to  come  up  with  some  doubts  Smile  Shocked  ,  now  that  Biju  has  mentioned  it  ....  here  it  is.....
 
 
 You  can  visit  JJ  Mehta  &  Sons  in  Mumbai,  they  have  genuine  stuff  &  after  sales  service.
 
 Canon  Pro  SLR,    PowerShot  S1  IS  or  PowerShot  S2  IS  is  what  I  would  recommend.  These  have  Image  Stabilizing  lens  with  USM  drive,  a  good  deal  at  that  price.  If  you  are  willing  to  spend  for  S2  IS,  do  look  at  other  options.
 
 Check    contact  us  info  for  reachability.
 
 All  the  best  for  the  selection  process  Thumb Up  
 
 Regards,

 dear  deepak
                                   i  have  a  budget  of  25K  .  I  find  your  link  very  useful  and  saw  some  excellent  snaps  taken  by  both  the  contenders.  powershot  S2  AND  sony  DSC  H1.  BUT  ONE  QUESTION  what  is  the  optical  zoom  of  S2?
       i  have    also  one  more  camera  in  mind  though  pretty  expensive.NIKON  D50.  costing  around  35K  in  JJ  mehta.
       hope  you  will  be  able  to  help.
       thanks
       ame

 Hi,
 
 S2  has  a  12X  optical  zoom.  I  would  suggest  S2  over  H1  for  various  reasons  &  personal  preference.
 
 Compared  to  the  above,  D50  is  an  SLR,  a  better  option  any  day!
 
 Like  I  suggested  earlier  check  out  the  dpreveiw.com  for  more  details  on  individual  models  &  look  for  what  suits  your  need,  &  what  features  are  most  important  for  you  &  what  you  can  do  without.  You  have  to  decide  â€¦Smile
 
 Regards,

PostPosted: Thu Sep 29, 2005 7:51 pm Post subject: SLR is the best bet. Reply with quote

 Hi  Ame,
 I  do  agree  with  Mr.Ravi  that  a  SLR  body  with  a  macro  lens  would  do  justice.  I  use  a  Nikon  D70  with  a  105  micro  lens  coupled  with  a  SB-29  ring  flash  and  get  great  results.  You  need  a  flash  to  freeze  the  fish    in  motion,as  Mr.Ravi  rightly  said.
 You  could  also  go  for  Nikon  D50  which  would  give  you  good  results.
 Hope  this  helps.
 regards,
 ganesh

 Some  very  nice  suggestions  in  this  thread...  Thumbs Up  
 
 Ame,  if  you  go  for  a  DSLR,  remember  that  you  will  end  up  spending  more  money  on  lenses,  flashes  end  misc.  equipment.  
 
 Rather  than  buying  new,  look  into  buying  a  used  body...  and  spend  money  on  good  lenses.

 Hi  Ame,
 
 I  liked  the  following  is  S2  over  H1:
 â€¢  1  aspherical  element  &  1  UD  element  in  lens.
 â€¢  IS  lens
 â€¢  A  very  useful  feature-Screen  Tilts,  twists  and  swivels  offering  shooting  versatility  &  protection  to  the  Display.
 â€¢  Diopter  adjustment  (good  for  people  wearing  specs.  I  can  shoot  w/o  specs,  with  specs  it's  very  difficult  to  put  your  eye  against  the  eye  cup  &  concentrate  on  the  object.)  Sony  too  has  one,  but  in  steps  &  few  steps.  Here  it  is  like  a  fine  adjustment  screw  with  more  range.
 â€¢  100%  coverage  on  View  finder  as  well  as  LCD.  I'm  not  sure  about  Sony’s.
 â€¢  SD  card  offers  fast  writes  &  write  protection.
 
 Hope  this  helps  you  decide  on  which  features  to  look  for.  I’ve  not  mentioned  a  few  features  like  Aperture,  Speeds,  Movie  mode,  continuous  shooting  modes  (S2  has  unlimited  shoots,  H1  has  9  frames)  &  so  on….
 
 Regards,

 I  would  recommend  the  Sony  DSC  F  828  -  by  far  the  best  today  in  its  class  (barring  DSLRs)  with  a  4  color  CCD  and  has  a  CF  card  slot  too  -  first  time  in  a  Sony.  Its  definitely  worth  its  cost!!!  
 
 In  the  DSLR  category  would  recommend  the  Nikon  D  70.

PostPosted: Wed Jun 28, 2006 6:09 pm Post subject: Sony launches its first DSLR Reply with quote

 The  first  Digital  SLR  from  SONY,  Alpha-100  has  been  launched  this  month.  Seems  to  be  priced  between  Nikon  D50  and  Canon  EOS350D,  and  is  feature  packed,  according  to  the  reviewers.
 
 See  one  review  here:  http://www.trustedreviews.com/article.aspx?art=3009
 
 
 Have  a  question.
 
 Can  I  use  my  film  SLR  lenses  on  a  DSLR?  To  be  specific,  I  have  a  Minolta  X300s  manual  focus  SLR.  Can  the  lenses  be  used  on  a  Sony  DSLR?  Sony  uses  Minolta  mount  (in  fact  Sony  took  over  the  Minolta  camera  division)

 I  wouldnt  buy  a  Sony  simply  because  they  dont  specialize  in  still  photography  and  they  are  bloody  expensive  for  camera  makers  that  dont  figure  in  the  top  3.  
 
 Canon  is  by  far  the  best  you  can  get  these  days,  but  again,  very  expensive,  a  good  second  choice  if  you  can  afford  it  is  a  Nikon.  I  have  a  Fuji  s5600  with  an  SLR-like  body,  10x  zoom,  1  cm  macro,  adjustible  shutter  speeds  and  ISO  settings  (so  you  can  take  images  of  moving  objects)  and  a  few  other  features  that  I  am  still  to  learn  to  use.  
 
 The  kind  of  pics  it  can  take?
 
 Macro  shot:  The  cactus  flower  in  the  picture  below  is  less  than  3  cms  in  width.
 
 
 
 Fishy  photo:  My  5  inch  convict
 
 
 
 I  bought  the  camera  off  ebay  and  got  it  for  a  very  good  price.

 To  bust  some  myths  -  Sony  does  specialize  in  digital  still  cameras.  They  are  currently  number  2  (2005)  see  :
 
 http://news.zdnet.com/2100-1040_22-5671205.html
 
 Futher  information  -  ALL  Nikon  cameras  (P&S  and  DSLR)  use  SONY  sensors.  Many  Canon  P&S  cameras  use  SONY  sensors.  With  Sony  now  in  the  DSLR  space  after  the  take  over  of  Konica  Minolta  -  their  share  is  likely  to  increase.

 To  add  to  this,
 
 Minolta  was  definitely  not  an  'also  ran'  series.  Their  DSLRs  were  good.  In  fact,  they  were  the  first  to  launch  a  successful  AF  SLR,  and  had  a  clear  lead  over  the  biggies,  when  they  got  into  legal  issues  over  patents.
 
 The  new  Sony  series  seems  to  combine  the  best  of  Minolta  and  Sony.  Of  course,  we  will  need  to  wait  and  see  how  it  performs  in  the  field.
