Hi all,

I am after some help choosing a first camera.
I have decided not to get anything too expensive but also hopefully something that will last.
I have had a look around and have been tempted by the following

Panasonic Fz10
Sony F717
Nikon Coolpix 5700

Hope someone is able to point me in the right direction.

Thanks

John

most reviews..read here

If u want Nikon, get a good one, no need to pay more tho, US imports prices are good now..
ask on few forums.. i like 8700 or better..
and Canon PowerShot Pro1. or a Rebel.. maybe

You sound like you speak from experience, I am visiting New York next month so expect to pick one up out there.
Does anyone know of any good/cheap places in NYC for cameras?

Thanks
