FAQ - What Camera to Buy?

Moved by competition, even Nikon went the SLR APS way. Yes, much better lenses and the feel of a single lens reflex camera, but you have to remember that the almost certain disappointments of the "Advanced Photo System" or APS come from the negative size. But, again, if you must somehow, at least increase your chances for some success with a Nikon.

Sorry, no decent enlargement possible

 Red Panties for good luck. A Christmas family tradition, source of joy, clean fun and great expectations. Uneven lighting and pink "rabbit" eyes, from a Canon Elph APS..

Nikon Pronea S
Nikon Pronea 6i
With AF-A Automatic Switching Mode; the Pronea S detects forward movement and Continuous Autofocus automatically activates itself. It also features Focus Tracking, also automatic when movement is detected. With AF Illuminator that allows the Pronea S to focus in very low light conditions. 3D Matrix Metering in 6 segments.
It was called the "new dimension" in Single-Lens Reflex (SLR) photography. Boasting a stylish metallic-gray color and sleek design, the Pronea 6i delivered Nikon quality and high performance – like superb exposure control and razor-sharp auto-focus. With its Nikon F lens mount, you could access both the Nikkor IX line or the full interchangeable autofocus Nikkor lens system.

APS Recommendation: For about the same price of an APS you can keep most of the conveniences and move up to at least a "compact" or Point & Shoot 35mm camera; just a bit bigger but better armed in terms of both negative size, lenses and integrated flashes, most of them now with red eye reduction capability and variable power.

If you are somewhat fascinated by the now discontinued SLR APS, go all the way to a 35mm SLR. The APS film required plenty of improvements, but all of them have now been incorporated into 35mm film. A modern ISO 800 film looks like the ISO 100 of yesterday in terms of grain.

Outstanding! Thanks so much for the overview and the recommendations. I enjoyed reading about each class or group you presented. I especially liked your closing comment as that's what it's all about for me. Thanks again! Larry
