high quality Digital camera

Postby Thomas on Fri Nov 28, 2003 11:13 pm

Hello,

I need your help, I would like to purchase a high quality Digital camera for my wife for Christmas.

She favors the manual cameras, Pentex, Olympus OM-1, with the extra lenses, 50mm, wide angle and zoom.

Her dream is to be able to take high resolution professional quality pictures, and slides from which she can do paintings.

Keeping the words "Manual" & "Digital" in mind, what would your or your staff recommend?

Thank you,

Thomas

Dear Thomas,

Thanks for your interest in our products!
What you need is a digital SLR camera.
http://www.opticsplanet.com/digital-slr-cameras.html
It will give you the control of a manual camera with superb quality of a high-end digital camera.
To be honest, any of the digital SLR cameras that we carry - Canon, Pentax, Minolta will give you exceptional quality with their excellent 6+ megapixel CCD's and great optics.
My personal favorite is Pentax *ist D Digital SLR Camera
http://www.opticsplanet.com/pentax-digi ... -istd.html
It addresses my main issue with digital SLRs - their size and weight.
Pentax *istD Digital SLR Camera is light and relativly small, and you can easily use it without a tripod on a long photoshoot - the image will stay steady.
If you already have some lenses, get the digital SLR camera of the same brand.
If you have a set of Pentax Lenses from your Pentax 35mm film SLR camera, it will work with your new digital SLR camera, if you have Canon lenses already, get Canon Digital Rebel (EOS-300D) Camera
http://www.opticsplanet.com/canon-digit ... amera.html or if budget allows Canon EOS 10D Digital Camera Kit
http://www.opticsplanet.com/canon-digit ... d-kit.html
If you have Minlta, let us know ;-) Olympus E-1 Digital SLR is also very good, but we currently do not carry this model
I hope it helps.

Best Regards
