I'm looking for an economical still camera to click hi-res photos for a research project I'm doing.
An important requirement is that the photo output in a RAW format. (least compression)
I want to know which cameras would be suitable, that can be controlled (remote capture) from any software that works okay.
This is the list of cameras that Lightroom supports:
* EOS 5D * EOS 5D Mark II * EOS 1D Mark II * EOS 1Ds Mark II * EOS 1D Mark III * EOS 1Ds Mark III * EOS 1D Mark IV * EOS 7D * EOS 500D (Rebel T1I(EOS /Kiss X3 Digital) * EOS 450D (Rebel XSI/EOS Kiss X2) * EOS 1000D (Rebel XS/EOS Kiss F) * EOS 350D (Rebel XT/EOS Kiss Digital N) * EOS 400D (Rebel XTi/EOS Kiss Digital X) * EOS 20D * EOS 30D * EOS 40D * EOS 50D
* D3 * D3s * D3x * D90 * D200 * D300 * D300s * D700 * D5000
Edit: Found some more Nikon models listed on this page:
* D2X * D2Hs * D2H * D2Xs * D100 * D80 * D70s * D70 * D60 * D50 * D40X * D40
Most of these are very expensive so I'm looking for cheaper alternatives that could offer similar quality and resolution of photos.
Are these the only Nikon and Canon cams that have remote capture?
Does Sony have any suitable models?
