 ame,
 
 go  for  anything  with  4.0  megapixels  or  more...  the  more  the  megapixels,  the  more  the  clarity....    4.0  will  allow  any  photo  to  be  printed  as  clearly  as  a  regular  35mm  camera  photo....

 Hi  there,
 This  is  THE  BEST  website  for  digital  cameras  reviews...
 
 http://www.steves-digicams.com
 
 Suggestions  (budget  taken  into  account)  can  be  the  following:
 1)  Sony  DSC-W5  (5mp,  video-superb  quality,  I  have  this!!)
 2)  Sony  DSC-W7(7mp,  video-AMAZING,  might  be  costly)
 3)  ANY  NIKON  CAMERA  ABOVE  5MP.
 
 Regards,
 amod.

 You  are  looking  in  the  right  direction  here  (Although  the  Panasonic  lumix  is  a  better  cam  IMO)...  go  for  a  camera  with  high  optical  zoom.  Digital  zoom  is  useless  for  aquarium  photography.
 
 As  far  as  resolution  goes,  unless  you  plan  on  making  poster  sized  prints,  2MP  is  fine  for  most  people.  I've  used  low-end  Canon's,  Nikon's,  HP's,  Minolta's  and  Olympus's  and  all  of  them  take  good  pics.
 
 Another  important  thing  to  consider  is  shutter-lag...  few  fish  will  stay  still  for  you.
 
 If  you  are  really  serious  about  it,  get  a  camera  which  supports  RAW  format  and  external  flashes,  something  like  these

 I  would  suggest  that  you  look  into  the  following  two  models  from  canon.  
 
 1)Canon  PowerShot  S1  IS  3.2  MP  Digital  Camera  with  10x  Image  Stabilized  Optical  Zoom  --    the  prices  of  this  model  has  come  down  like  anything.  I  have  this  one  with  me  and  is  a  wonderful  camera.
 
 2)  Canon  Powershot  S2  IS  5MP  Digital  Camera  with  12x  Optical  Image  Stabilized  Zoom
 
   Always  go  for  a  camera  with  more  optical  zoom.  Higher  MP  does  not  gives  you  any  advantage  as  the  size  of  the  picture  we  normally  take  are  smaller  ones.
 
 Regards,

 Apollyon,  check  out  the  dpreview  reviews  on  both.  Of  the  2,  I'd  recommend  the  Fuji.

 The  lens  quality  is  extremely  important.  Megapixels  is  a  minor  factor.  For  example,  photos  shot  with  a  Nikon  90  MM  Macro  lens  will  be  crystal  clear  &  sharp  compared  to  a  Nikon  18  -  70  MM  kit  zoom  lens  (all  other  things  being  equal).  A  4  or  6  megapixel  camera  with  poor  lens  will  turn  out  poor  pictures  compared  to  a  1  megapixel  photo  from  a  camera  with  very  good  lens.

 Now  you  are  venturing  into  digital  SLR  area.  Smile  Point  &  Shoot  (P&S)  digital  cameras  do  not  have  instant  shoot  capacity.  One  way  to  defeat  this  problem  is  to  use  the  "pre  focus"  feature.  Another  way  is  to  use  continuous  shots,  where  by  3  or  more  shot  are  fired  each  time  you  click.

 Hi,
 
 I  would  not  suggest  any  SONY  make;  they  are  not  primarily  the  photography  experts.  Nikon,  Canon  &  Fiji  would  be  my  preferred  choice.    For  cost  factors  I  would  go  with  Canon.
 
 If  you  are  looking  for  compact  camera’s  you  can  decide  on  the  following:
 
 â€¢ Look  for  sensor  size.  Larger  is  better,  for  both  color  &  details.  http://www.dpreview.com/learn/?/Glossary/Camera_System/Sensor_Sizes_01.htm
 â€¢ Lower  shutter  lag.  http://www.dpreview.com/learn/?/Glossary/Camera_System/Lag_Time_01.htm
 â€¢ Faster  write  speeds.
 â€¢ External  hot  shoe  for  flash.
 â€¢ Auto  /  Manual  modes
 â€¢ Multipoint  focus  ,  rather  than  center  focusing
 â€¢ Macro  mode  &  it’s  distance,  as  suggested  by  Ravi.  Note:  some  cameras  have  a  problem  in  Macro  mode,  the  shadow  of  the  lens  in  seen  when  flash  is  used.
 â€¢ Battery  life  &  type  of  battery  required.  Very  important.  Else  you  have  free  memory,  but  no  power.  Though  you  can  carry  spares    Smile  
 
 Still  better,
 SLR  (includes  Aperture/Time/ISO/etc.  settings,  detachable  lens)
 SLR's  have  endless  possibilities.
 
 www.dpreveiw.com  is  a  very  informative  site.
 Photography  jargon  http://dpreview.com/learn/?/glossary/
 Reveiws  http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/default.asp?view=alpha
 
 Hope  this  helps.

 Hi  Ame,
 
 One  can't  specify  an  range,  unless  you  have  decided  what  you  are  looking  for.  First  decide  on  whether  do  you  want  a  Compact  ,  Pro  SLR  or  SLR  &  then  decide  your  budget.  Or  the  other  way  round  decide  you  budget  first.
 
 They  start  at  $200  &  run  into  thousands  of  $$$$$.
 
 Try  using  THE  BUYING  GUIDE,  hope  it  helps  you  decide.
 
 Regards,
