I am looking for a new camera. Up until now i have been using a Nikon (film) camera, but am looking to buy a new digital SLR camera. Here are the requirements I am looking for: - 6MP or greater - very fast and slow exposure rates - use 1Gb compact flash cards - rechargable battery - all adjustments found on you're standard professional film camera - Manual and automatic exposure modes - $1000 or less with or without included lens - preferably Nikon or Canon unless someone has a better suggestion I know that many of you here have discussed professional digital cameras and any buying advice would be very useful to me. I plan to use to camera for macro shots, landscapes, architectual detail shots, fast motion shots, and blurred slow shots. The ability to adjust f-stops, aperature, exposure, and sharpness are very important.
