I use a 2500L for studio portraits and the E10 is on order. Invest in the remote release (the E10 is a huge improvement over the 2500L on that score), the ac adaptor - no need for extra batteries at all and if you wire the computer to the camera you will only need one (fairly large) memory card. The last facility I just mentioned will be an absolute boon in the studio - not so outside. I have an iBook with USB and the way I have had it explained to me is that the camera memory card physically mounts on the desktop of the computer just like another storage device. The thing I hate about compact flash cards is the adaptor that I need to use to download to my iMac and iBook makes things very fiddly but CF cards are much more robust than Smat Media. In a studio with the E10 you would never need to remove the card from the camera! The benefits are huge. Take a shot (or shots) copy them straight onto your hard disk, open them, manipulate them and print them. And take the money! One other thing. I always shoot at the highest resolution with no compression - ie TIFF files. On the E10 they are 12 megabytes each I guarantee that the moment you choose to shoot images at the lower

Which camera should i buy

There are a lot of factors to consider, and only YOU can make the final decision.

Some, by no means all, of the factors include price, weight, how it feels in your hands, the pixel resolution, whether it has interchangeable lenses (and how big the selection is), weather sealing, whether it's waterproof, what you mostly intend the camera for, ...

Obviously, the best camera for a sports photographer is not the best camera for a studio portrait photographer, as they have two completely different sets of needs.

Without knowing what type of camera you want or what you want to do with it, no one can tell you what the best camera is. I would suggest that you pick up one or more buyer's guide at your local bookstore (or online), compare camera features, and try to match a few against your needs (and budget). If possible, visit a good camera store and handle the cameras you're considering.

Again, only YOU can decide what's the best camera for you.

What are the best kind of photos to take with a Nikon D90 18-105mm lens? Any suggestions on taking family portraits with this type of lens?

The 18-105mm is a great "walking about" lens. I've used mine for just about everything, from landscapes to candids to portraits to architecture to sports.
It's a great focal length for portraits, but unfortunately f/4.5-5.6 is too slow to be ideal for this purpose. In general, you want a narrow depth of field to blur the background and make your subject stand out. Pros routinely use f/2.8 and faster lenses for portraits, but such lenses will cost more than you paid for your camera-and-lens kit.
That doesn't mean you can't do it with this lens. It just means you have to be a little more careful about the selection of backgrounds and the positioning of your subjects.
Visit your local library or bookstore. You'll find many books on portrait techniques, covering everything from equipment to lighting to posing.

I am using this camera from last 3 years. It was working fine. Suddenly, a problem occurred. Now whenever I select the Auto mode, it is set to video option instead of still image. I have formatted...

I'm have the exact same problem. Purchased the camera 3.5 years ago. Recently needed to shoot a video, when finished I set the camera back to Auto and it stayed in video. Portrait mode shows manual, all other modes work as assigned. I've noticed at least TWO other posters having the same problem within the last couple of months. It's as though this camera (mfg. 2007) has a Trojan program from the factory to make us buy newer models.

Other than resetting, is there a way to flush and reload the firmware?

You can't. The Portrait mode, like all the other point&shoot modes, are automatic. The camera controls most functions, like exposure metering, auto-focus mode, and white-balance. If you want control over the camera, you'll have to use one of the PSAM modes.

I love taking wedding photos. do you think the

Yes, I'm sure that camera will be fine, the 20D some years back was considered OK for wedding images
BUT its more about the quality of the LENS you are using and will it wok in all situations
I used to do a lot of Film work for weddings and used various canon camera bodies, but the lenses where the important factor for speed, composition - I also used a top quality flash unit, that could be used OFF camera. I used a 28mm lens, 50mm 1.8 lens - very high quality and cheaply available, 135mm portrait lens, and various zoom lens
I also always used a tripod, so i could compose the groups and then leave, the camera and go and work with setting up the group, and using a remote take the picture. I also used a flash frame on the flash, so I could turn the camera between portrait and landscape with out worrying about the flash gun

Fuji S2 white balance problem

You might be able to compensate for the flash from within the camera, under lighting. I've already found that setting it for fluorescent while using tungston works well, depending on what main colors you are shooting. Reflectivity can really change a final product.
