    Hi All,

    I'm pretty much a newbie when it comes to digtal photograhy so please bear with me..... :)

    I'm in a band and we're looking at purchasing a digital camera in order to take good quality shots at our gigs... Below are the requirements, and if you would be so kind as to look at these and let me know of any cameras that you experts would recommend.

    - Looking at spending no more that £500
    - Most of our gigs are in dark venues, with back lighting
    - Venue is very smoky due to smoke machine and smoking :)
    - Photos are for the web site and not really for printing
    - Would like to take around 50 Pics per gig
    - Would like to transfer directly onto PC via USB or Firewire
    - Ability to review photo after taking and then delete retake if necessary
    - Be upgradeable to more memory in future

    Any recommendations/links/info etc etc very much appreciated.

    Thanks very much, the first 2 seem more in line with our budget :) Do they both work well in Low Light conditions ?

    Don't forget to price in the additional memory you'll need when working out what you can afford. The standard 16mb many cameras come with won't go very far.

    An external flash can be added to the miolta and the nikon for extra light if its needed. I would go for the minolta if you're tight for dough.
