Compact Camera High ISO Modes: 1. Introduction: Digital Photography Review
Interesting article.
Look at Page 3 where the high ISO performance of digital SLR is compared with compact cameras.
The notable exception is the Fuji F30 which produces amazing images at high ISO!

I just need the body. Still??? I thought with Rs at 40 and expected to hit 39, these things will get cheap.

Digital SLR will have to wait till I can pay for it myself and I have better knowledge on equipment.

On a positive note, got an S3 with a 2gb card Now for some lessons from Rudraji after these darned exams

Default Digital V/s Film Based SLR camera

so here is the thing, I am thinking / decided to take up photography as a hobby always been attracted to it but never goit the chance. I need to get a decent camera so i was talking to some people and one of the things that came out was that a film based slr is better than a digital slr, is that true ?
i would think it would be the same other than the obvious diff of digital v/s file ....

what camera would you suggest & why ?

Only an idiot would recommend a film slr as your primary body in this day and age. You might want to keep a film slr as a backup body but definitely have a digital slr as your primary. If you buy a canon, all lenses other than EF-S mount lenses can be interchanged between film and digital. In case of nikons, you can use all but the DX lenses. So its easy... buy a digital body first up and then get a used film body later as these are dirt cheap on ebay and such (~20-30$ for a Canon Elan 7NL)

I would suggest if you are an amateur photographer then dont go for an SLR. I would suggest you to go for a high end Digital camera like cannon S5IS . But If you have LSR lenses lying around then you can go for an SLR... I dont think DSLR are inferior in anyway to film ones.
