Hi,
i am looking for a digital camera with a strong body, with good, fast software, pixels etc. but without video, touchscreen, menus forever and a lot of in camera non essentials. i want a good lens. Auto,S,A.M controls and accessable buttons for iso, white balance and bracketing.
Really i want a good "old fashioned" camera but with the convience/flexabilty of digital.
I am not rich!
hope someone has found it.
thanks.

Well, you couldn't have timed it better! Fujifilm FinePix X100 (http://www.whatdigitalcamera.com/equipment/reviews/compactcameras/128880/1/fujifilm-finepix-x100-review.html)

Also, pop along to the Fuji site for more detailed information on how it all began Click me... (http://www.finepix-x100.com/en)

What more could one ask for? :D

Ah! well, if he ain't got the spondulits, then he will have to do without some of the retro features ;)

Best take a look at the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1 (http://www.whatdigitalcamera.com/equipment/reviews/microsystemcameras/27235/1/panasonic-lumix-dmc-gf1-review.html) :)

The canon g11 or g12 fit the bill but it does have video, but you dont have to use it.

Both those have a very small sensor of 7.6 x 5.7 mm compared to the others.

The GF1 has a sensor size of 17.3 x 13 mm - The Fujifilm FinePix X100, 23.6 x 15.8 mm.

However, the Canon Poweshots are a much cheaper alternative, and provide you don't want to use them for very low light will do a good job :)

The Canon EOS 450D DSLR is a compact and light weight 12.2mp Digital SLR Camera. I think, it is one of the best cameras for you. This camera features Canon's DIG!C III image processor, and has a fast and responsive 9-point AF with continuous shooting at 3.5fps for up to 53 shots, you'll never miss a thing! The Canon EOS 450D has variable sensitivity from ISO 100 to ISO 1600 as well as a large 3" LCD screen and Live View with Auto Focusing.
