Hi, I'm new here. And very much a beginner when it comes to photography. I'll be traveling to the Philippines soon, and will be staying for 3 weeks. Having traveled there several times before, I'm never happy with the pictures I come home with. My pictures are probably 70% street pictures, lots and lots of people pictures. 30% are landscapes, beaches, mountains, etc. I recently used a Canon S2IS there. Lots of the pictures I take are in low light, and they come out blurry or grainy, even after tweaking the settings, ISO, shutter, aperature, etc, because I really try to avoid the flash if possible. I know I'm beyond what the camera is designed for, but I really want photos with natural light. Maybe the camera is fine for my needs and what I really need is a photography class. So, now I'm looking for something better. I've looked at some of the Nikon SLRs, like the D60, but then I wonder what I'd need to take for lenses to equal the 12x zoom I have with the S2IS, and also have the abilty to take low light portraits. I've researched back and forth on the web, and am even more confused than when I started. I've been into a few camera stores, and get the feeling they just want to sell me something....anything. Help please!
