Nikon and Cannon make good cameras but so does Olympus and Sony. I prefer Olympus for digital cameras since they seem to be more durable and have many extras like underwater cases, etc. Have never owned a sony myself but hae had a few cannons and nikons, great cameras but did not have the durability of the olympus cameras. IMO

If anyone wants a great point and shoot camera that is really small and compact and takes awesome pictures look at the Canon SD630. We have one and its great.....small, lightweight and takes GREAT photo's.......it is 6mp but it takes better photo's than many higher mp cameras around the same price or cheaper...

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1140392153785

If you are looking for an affordable digital SLR nothing really beats the Rebel XTi at that price point. I've talked to MANY professional photograpers that have Digital SLR's that are 2 or 3 times the price of the XT or XTi and they have the rebel as their backup camera but end up using it more than their expensive primary camera.

My first digital was a Sony Cybershot...worked just fine. Now I have a Nikon Coolpix and it works fairly well too. Buy as much camera as you can afford!

Just something to think about... it's like buying a litre bike, haha. Are you experienced enough to understand and use the features of a highend camera like the ones your posting about?

Unless you've got alot of experience with the technical aspect of photography then you really only need a point and shoot that will cost hundreds less. I'm an avid photographer and have been going out on random shoots for about a year now and I just recently started looking for a higher end camera. I currently have a Canon A610 that cost around $300 about a 16 months ago. Check out some of the shots I've taken with this simple point and shoot.

These are all images straight from the camera, not photoshop...

208140489 a44d687a3a?v0

208140502 5e18d41434?v0

309148382 ad401eb09d?v0

308315648 0d9b1f6114?v0

Just some food for thought. The more you save on your camera the more you can spend on your bike. :icon_bigg

A good point in shoot is awlays an asset for shutter bugs now days. There are some nice entry level SLRs coming on the market now too. Find something you are comfortable with.
