    Not all proconsumer can change lens. Beware!

    Only a DSLR or SLR can. Go for Canon or Nikon DSLR or SLR

    Photography is an expensive hobby.

    Thanks Franky..

    My idea is not to change lens, so I can carry just the camera everywhere. I've no money to go for the DSLR, don't want to get myself poisoned!

    now the technology between presumer and compact is so close in term of megapixel, function and ISO, if I were u, i will not change it, cos it almost make no different between the 2.

    Recently came across the Sony DSC cybershot T200 - new product. It is completely touch-screen. 8 Megapixels with a 5X optical zoom. Very compact camera (hidden lens) and has a lot of features. Priced around RM1,600 - cheaper than a prosumer. The lcd screen is a huge 3.5 inch touch-screen. ISO3200 - which means you can take low-light pictures without the flash.

    One disadvantage is the use of the touch-screen drains the battery pretty fast. If you are able to conserve battery by shutting down the camera between shots, it should be OK.

    ccek,

    From the list of cameras you are intersted in, let me categories them into 2 form factors: the compacts and prosumer (with the dslr-like body).

    My recommendation: get a compact. The compact is more convenient. There is very little difference in quality of the picture between a compact and a prosumer. The sensor size between the compacts and prosumers are the same. The only advantage of a prosumer is the longer lens ie more zoom power.

    One compact camera I would like to recommend is the Fuji F50fd. If you shoot a lot of low light scenes, Fuji is the camera to have.

    Among the choice that you listed, I would go for the 9600(though the 9600 has been quite some time in the market). Fuji are known to hv better noise control compared to the others in compact/prosumer. Why dont you try the Fuji S8000 which is Fuji's latest prosumer? .

    Thank you all sifus for your suggestion. You know what, I'm more confused now

    I had a compact already, it's a Nikon 5900 I'm so far very happy with it. The problem is the LCD display started to have black spots and it's actually growing, I think sooner or later the whole LCD will be black out .

    I want a prosumer because it can have some manual adjustment also. I think I will take a look at Fuji S8000 and F50fd

    Get Henry to source a used Oly Prosumer for you.
    He got the contacts & usually extremely good value.
