    My previous camera ( Sony a350 ) got stolen.

    I am in a market for a new camera . I am not a professional photograph and the main reason for purchasing a good camera is my remodeling business.

    I want to be able to take beautiful pictures of my projects ( kitchen and bathrooms ) Most of the time the spaces where I am working are very small ( e.g: 6x5' bathrooms ) and without the proper lens is impossible to get the best view and angle . I want to show in my pictures as much information as possible.

    I am in the market for a new camera...

    Can you help me selecting the best one for my scope ?

    Thanks a lot !!

    Any of the new entry-level DSLRs will do you; you're going to need fill light, so high ISO performance isn't critical; Nikon D5000 & kit lens & 10.5mm fish-eye.

    nope the 50d does not. if your leaning in the direction of a good entry level camera that does video I would take a look at the Canon T2i($800-900) or the T1i($600-700). You need a wide angle for interior rooms, so at the least I would make sure you get the kit lens 18-55mm IS. Need really wide, 10-22mm. I think you will be fine with the kit lens though. I am a Canon guy so I can't touch on the Nikon or any others, but I am sure some others will chime in.

    I want the widest lens possible.
    I think I will go with the T2i... can somebody give me a link to some good compatible lens ?

    thanks.

    What is your budget?

    Honestly, a 10-22 or 17-55 from Canon, tripod and a Canon T2I should be fine

    Kit lens is pretty wide. It will make the space bigger than what really is. Are you sure you need wider?

    I need as wide as possible. I am doing remodeling projects and need pictures before and after. Sometime my projects are 6x5 bathrooms or small kitchen . It is important to show entire room in pictures for a better before and after portfolio.

    I want to stay bellow 1,500.

    dont forget that when you go ultra wide, it distorts porpotions and makes this all warpy and curvy. Might not be ideal as you want to show the reality of the room...
