Hi there.
There isn't a best camera as everyone of us has different needs, you will have to be more specific ;-)

Are you looking for digital or film, small or big, what format, what are you going to use it for, and what's your budget?

Peter

You can compare some cameras already on
www.dpreview.com
www.fredmiranda.com (also a good lens section if you decide for a Digital SLR the total cost will be camera + lens )

make a selection (budget) and then you can ask here more specifique

ok thanks for the message and the advice to be more specific.Im looking for a digital camera of a medium size, that will enable me to take a variety of shots and images from landscape to portraits. i'm vaguely a beginner with camera and the various technical info, but i believe that canon and nokia seem to be very popular on this site, thanks for your time

Hi Latifah
This might sound silly, but I'll say it anyway. It is also very important how the camera feels in your hands. Think about it, if it is awkward for you to hold or you find the buttons in awarjard places you will tend to use your camera less. It is a very personal thing.
Ciao, a presto
Simone..

Thanks for the advice, yes the sensation is fundamental to enjoying the use of your camera. i like the photo that you took of the girl on the ferry (Usa) and the venetian mask/egypt sea. Ive been looking at a few websites and things are becoming a little clearer about possibile camera choices.
thanks once again

I believe you meant Canon and Nikon, medium size,
if an SLR (mirror reflex with separate lens)
then
you could compare the Canon 350D with the Nikon D50
at
http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/compare_post.asp?method=sidebyside&cameras=canon_e os350d%2Cnikon_d50&show=all

the D50 has already an excellent JPEG tending a bit to an acceptable red/brown
the 350D is excellent for Raw-editions, a longer learning process but rewarding

The writer George Bernhard Shaw said once, the hole pattern camera is the best camera of the world, and the secondarybest camera is the Leica. Today it concerns however only digital cameras. Here must be differentiated between Consumerkameras with very small sensors and DSLR Digitalkameras. An important point for the image quality is the size of the pixels, which should not be under 6,5µ. During the dissolution are enough 8 million pixel. The objective should fit the size of the sensor and have about 24-105 mm of focal length. And finally the camera as well as the objective should be easy, so that one must carry ballast with itself not unnecessarily. Ideal therefore the Canon 350D with a fixed focal length is or a zoom in the middle focal length range for example.
