I have the Fuji 2650, its cheap, easy to use, and is really quick to use. And if it really matters to you guys, the directions are pretty easy to understand.

I got a Fuji Finepix A200... 2X optical zoom, 2 megapixels, macro mode.... anwyay, I find other camera likes the one I have are good for beginners and taking simple pictures. If you plan going herping (outside of NY for you Barb), I would consider something with more zoom and adaption capabilities.

It all depends what you want the camera for. Now, I want to take some more outdoor shots and my zoom is nothing and I can't get an add-ons. As a beginner camera it's great, but I am looking to upgrade - yeah, it's only been 2 months since I got my camera.

Cheers,
JJ [icon_smile_wink.gif

My suggestion for someone who has never used a digital camera is to buy a real cheapy first, though make sure it has a preview window. Then use it for awhile and decide what you are missing. In the meantime, the prices of the good ones will drop by the $100 you have spent so you won't spend any additional money over what it would have cost to buy the good one in the first place. Then you can give the beginner camera to a niece or nephew.

I stand by the NIKKON Coolpix.

Mine is great. Haven't taken any pix with Spartacus on it yet, but I do have some samples from my SaltWater Tank.

I love my Nikon coolpix 2500, the only problem i have is the lack of changeable lenses. This would be a good beginners digicam. Not too expensive, good MP, good, storage capacity. I'm sticking with Nikon.

Well, I just got a digital camrea. I got the cannon elph s200, it looks like this: Posted Image. It is 279 there, plus tax and all that good stuff, but I got mine for 263 all together at www.pricegrabber.com . I think it takes really good pictures, but its only 2 MP, but thats good enough for me. Its really small, and thats what I like about it. It takes mini movies, and it has alot of features that I have yet to try! Here are a few pictures that I took of my turtle when I was home last week:

I just got a new camera!! [icon_smile_big.gif [icon_smile_big.gif [icon_smile_big.gif [icon_smile_big.gif

For details on my new camera visit:
http://www.imaging-r...S/C730/C73P.HTM

I bought it off of ebay from this guy
http://cgi.ebay.com/...item=2917285565
If you view his other items the same deal is repeated a few times and it's a GREAT DEAL esp when you calculate in all of the extras he includes with it (AC Adapter, Case, 32MB Card, Extra Batteries, Charger, Card Reader, tripod etc etc etc)

I just got it yesterday evening so I have a lot to figure out but at first glance/use I'm LOVING IT!!!! I just can't seem to stop playing with the video ehhe

To see my first test videos visit:
http://picolio.com/Video/

Note I have not read the manual yet lol...

So FWIW...I think I'm going to be quite pleased with this choice [icon_smile_big.gif

We use the Samsung Digimax 130. It takes very good pics and was a great price point. It also has frills of more expensive cameras like the LCD screen. The only disadvantage is the lighting has to be really good otherwise shots come out grainy. It works great for what we use it for. My son loves to use it too.

I have an Agfa ePhoto 270 (1.3 megapixel) which we no longer use much and a Kodak dx3600.

We've taken nearly 3000 pictures with the kodak since october (this includes video, it does that too). It's a 2.2 meghapixel with an accurate viewfinder and the ability to use the screen as a viewfinder.

The new kodaks and the new HP's are some of the best you'll find for under $700. The lens' are all glass (not plastic, which you see in a lot of fuji, olympus and agfa digital cameras) and they use popular digital film- compact flash and, more commonly now, SD (secure digital) cards.

I like the quality of many Sony camera shots BUT, they use proprietary media- the sony memory stick. Which limits what you can do with it.

I can take the card out of may camera and put it in my pocketpc for viewing. I like that feature.

Anybody interested in getting a digital camera might want to check out May '03's (?) issue of Consumer Reports. They did a pretty decent breakdown of cameras. Unfortunately, I don't have the issue in front of me to list their recommendations.
