Where can I buy a professional camera? Which is the best?

I have been saving up some money, and I am planning to buy me a new camera.

I took a photography course in high school. I am planning on going into the photography profession for journalism or perhaps set up my own studio.

Price is no object, I simply want the best one out there.

Please help.

    My wife gave me the Nikon D3X camera for Christmas, and it beat my old camera by a long shot. I love this thing!

    Some of the features are: 24.5 megapixel FX-format (35.9 x 24.0mm), 3-inch super-density 920,000-dot VGA LCD monitor, continuous shooting at up to 5 fps at full FX-format resolution, Dual CF card slots with overflow, backup and copy options.

    And you can order this beauty on Amazon http://www.cameras-amazon.info/nikon-d3x/

    If price is no object, consider a Hasselblad medium format camera with a 30MP digital back. If you get the whole package, you can even shoot with the more superior film using the same camera!

    If that seems too much, but you still want something above most of the rest, get the highest megapixel full-frame dSLR you can find (Canon, Nikon and Sony).

    Then by all means get the D3x as others have said here. Are you scared to order online because Amazon has good prices. You can read reviews about it there too. I found a whole kit on Amazon, now this may be a sticker shock but it is 12,000 bucks but you get lense and such. All the stuff you need. I wish I had the money to get that kit haha.

    Nikon's best is the D3X

    Canon's is the 1Ds Mark III

    The first is $9000

    I'm not sure about the second, I believe it's around $7000.

    All good camera stores will have them. You can also locate a local Canon or Nikon store. If all else fails you can get them online for a bit less sometimes but it may be risky unless it's a reputable store.

    If I was in your shoes I would go for the canon 50d. Its a great intermediate camera which comes with an awesome lens. You'll have no problem mastering photography with this camera.

    The most important question you need to ask yourself is, how much is your photography worth to you?

    If you are somebody that makes a living from photography and if the cost isn't your primary concern, I would recommended you Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III. This is the best one in my opinion.

    You can read reviews here

    http://www.artbyphil.com/phfx/photography/2007_Can...

    and here

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&loc...

    and if you want to buy it online, you can buy it from here

    Cheers
