Hello everyone! I decided that this would be the best place to ask this question. I'm a beginner in digital photography and I was wondering if there is a good camera within a $500 range. As for right now, I'm struggling between Canon Powershot G3 and G5. Can anyone recommend something. Or am I shopping in a wrong brand? Every reply would be greatly appreciated.

A question to ask of yourself is "what do I want to do with this camera?" Are you looking for something with lots of zoom for airliners? Mainly family stuff where you don't need the zoom but you want a good flash....
Use the sites listed and educate yourself with what you like and want in your price range.

When I was looking for a camera in June 2003, I decided on the Sony F717. I could not have been happier with the camera. It takes great pictures during both the day and night. It is very easy to use. The pictures are sharp. The zoom is great. The only problem is the price is about $500. It costs $799, but it is worth it.
