    What is the best quality, lightweight, professional camera to buy?

    It needs to take quality pictures but also have equal quality video capabilities.

    If by professional you are meaning an DSLR camera I don't think you can go past the Canon DSLR 500D. I believe it is the best entry level DSLR camera and it meets your requirement of taking HD video. I have written a review Hub that you might like to check out. I am using one of the cameras and very seldom take it off the Auto settings. Good luck with your quest!

    There's no easy answer to this. however firstly I will point out. If you want to take good to High quality video, then get a video camera. I realize in today's market many cameras offer HDR movie capabilities how much you can film with your Camera or length of time depends upon your memory card. then you have to ask about the sound quality.

    If your looking for a step between a "family" camera that s fully automatic, and a full on SLR,  look at a D.S.L.R by Cannon or Nikon or  a great Mid / steeping stone Camera would be a Fuji HS10 that will give you professional results, is a great all rounder. No need to swap lens it has a  fully Manuel control, its zoom is outstanding and you can purchase attachments / add on's like macro lens, filters and lens hood etc. THough you don't need the "add ons" So its not  limiting. It also has great Automatic  Presets.As you learn to go from one stage to the next stage of Photography, from fully automatic to fully Manuel controls. It gives you bang for your buck.

    If size and weight is your main concern. The don't alpha series cameras are as powerful as their nikon and canon dslr counterparts but about half their size. Otherwise most dslr cameras will meet what you need. Go to a local camera shop and ask to hold and take a photo with a couple different brands and see what feels right to you.
