Re: camera for beginner

On Jun 3 you can order a brand new Sony NEX-C3 with 18-55mm kit lens for $549, or with 16mm lens for $499. You will get excellent image quality in a package that is much more portable than a DSLR. Plus it will be brand new. If you want more reach (longer focal length) then I'd get a travel zoom or super zoom compact. For example the recently released Sony Hx9v or Sony Hx100v. I'm not trying to steer you towards Sony specifically but I have done a lot of online research and it seems to me that they have the best products in the particular price range and needs you have mentioned.
