Dear qp27-ga; Thank you for allowing me to answer your interesting question. My wife happens to be a professional photographer so I posed your question directly to her. Together we looked online and, as an amateur photographer?s first professional-level camera, she was impressed with both the features and price of this Canon 35mm camera, which coincidentally advertises that it ?satisfies the needs of photographers with a wide range of skill levels - from advanced amateur to absolute beginner and everyone in between.? Canon EOS Elan 7E 35mm SLR Autofocus Camera FROOGLE http://froogle.google.com/froogle_cluster?q=beginner+camera&pid=4834532080214633536&oid=7887374478516438885&btnG=Search+Froogle&lmode=&addr=&scoring=p&hl=en You will note that on a rating scale of 1-5 this camera ranked an impressive 4.9 among users who, like yourself, purchased the camera because they wanted a relatively simple auto focus device that takes professional quality photos. http://froogle.google.com/froogle/reviews?fq=beginner+camera&cid=9efec3927da8c0ec&hl=en You can see a great overview of the camera?s features on the Canon website. Please take note of a fascinating new feature called ?eye control? that is included in this device. Essentially it enables the camera to discern what you are looking at and it automatically focuses on that subject for you with little or no effort. Very nice indeed (in fact, I may buy one myself).

If you have any questions about my research please post a clarification request prior to rating the answer.

I am sure that Tutuzdad's (and wife's) recommendation is an excellent choice. These days, however, digital cameras are not only popular but also gaining acceptance by professional photographers since the number of pixels has increased and become reasonably priced, allowing "analog" quality prints for most use. (I am sure some will argue with me on this, but Qp27-ga is not a professional, and I know professionals who use digital.) The advantage for you, Gp27, is that you can immediately observe the results of your work without the expense and delay of getting film developed. You can "shoot" in volume - like the pros do, who can charge for their expenses. You can use your photo-software to crop photos to get the artistic format you want - again without the expense and learning to do this in a photo-lab yourself. Some may feel that that is part of the exercise, but it doesn't have to be. With a digital camera, you will probably be more generous in experimenting, learning, and continuing with your new hobby, which may otherwise suffer from the "stutter" of waiting for the results and cringe at the cost. I don't want to start an argument here, just want to try to present the alternate possibility. Regards, Myoarin
