Well if he wants interchangeable lenses than go for a SLR (Single Lens Reflex). I personaly recommend Cannon or Sony.

This one looks good.

or this one.

this one is good too.

Obviously all of these fine cameras are DSLR (Digital single Lens Reflex) and all will take a pefect picture. All of these camera's have a Hot Shoe too which means you can use an external flash on the camera's. You might also need to invest in a 1Gb or higher memory card because at 10.1 MP it will use alt of space.

My Olympus Sp-350 8MP uses 4.0MB per photo on RAW settings so 10.1 will give a very big file. Might wanna go with 2 - 4 GB card.

Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 @ 3400Mhz
Asus P5B-E
Samsung 400 GB Sata II
Corsair XMS2 2GB DDR2 800 5-5-5-12
Zalman CNPS-9700 LED
Antec Nine Hundred
Hp W2207 22" Widescreen Monitor
Windows Vista Home Premium
Silverstone ST60F 600W PSU
Razer Copperhead Tempest Blue Gaming Mouse
