    So I am looking into getting a good all around camera. I want to be able to take pictures of my daughter and also get good shots of my tank. I spend a lot of time outdoors as well so something I can take along on hikes and trips outside.

    Thoughts, tips, recommendations, any help would be appreciated.

    I would like to get into the potm someday...:x:

    Not sure. I would rather pay more now and not have to get a new one for quite a while.

    I was looking for a camera for the same reasons.I ended up getting a Sony A230 its 350.00 at B&H.. It comparable to higher priced models and me being a novice, i didn't want pay more for every bell and whistle.. It doesn't have live view, I was worried about that at first, but i was told the correct way to take photos with a DSLR is through the viewfinder and it wouldn't be an issue not having it. They were right. I dont miss it at all.
    Here are a few pictures
