Hello, Here is a list of comparably priced (SLR like) digital cameras I'm interested in: Kodak p850 Lumix DMC FZ7 PowerShot IS S2 Cyber Shot H2 I have a Nikon N6006 35mm SLR but need to explore creative experiments with digital camera for a portfolio. I am new to digital photography and printing production using digital and computer software tools. I plenty of manual creative and technical production experience but changed fields before the PC and Apple explosion. Now I want to return photography and print production. I'm partial to DMC FZ7 but LCD resolution and Zoom lens mechanism r of concern according to some reviews, although specs reveal higher over all resolution than that of kodak, except for the LCD. Kodak p850 seems very competitive love the flash hot shoe. Both FZ7 & P850 taut outstanding lens quality. Have looked at gallery photos but its hard to decide, photo quality seems great on both and a good photographer can make most cameras look great. FYI have to get my portfolio done rather quickly. Thanks for your help.
