Hi all,

I really love photography and thinks it's about time I upgrade from my Sony compact. The only question I have is which camera to buy?? I know, same old question!! I have a budget of around £500-600 and like to take landscape shots and photos of friend and families (not to mention the family dog!).

With my budget I donít know if it would be best to get a micro camera or go the full hog and get a DSLR. What are everyoneís thoughts on micro camera? I donít want to spend that amount of money only to find I want to upgrade again in 6 months time. I quite like to look of the Lumix G2 but I donít know if I'm being swayed by the fancy touch screen and HD recording. Any advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks
