I have a chum in New Zealand who just bought a Pentax digital- it takes some of the best pic's! Beautiful camera! I though Pentax just made those 35mm systems cameras.

I have a Casio QV-2900UX.
I really like it. It has a 32X digital zoom and 8X optical zoom. It is 2.1megapix. The USB plug in comes in very handy( because all you have to do with macs and the new windows is plug the camera in and use it like another harddrive and copy your pictures) and there is also a 16 MB card which they make cards with more memory for this camera as well.. the veiw screen rotates althought it will suck batteries dry very fast ( 2-3 hours with heavy flash use ) it had a plug if you are close to a power supply and it will also take short movies as well .. which is sort of cool *G*

of course im not much of a photographer and im also easily amused .. my fiance doesn't like the speed because if you increase it it washes out and now if you dont have a steady hand it blurs the picture.

This is one of the images i took with the camera .. as you can see im not the best at camera work *lol*

They have come out with a new model since i got my camera and i have also seen them that will take longer movies.

But if you are wanting to take a lot of digital pictures out of the vacinity of a plug i would seriously advise buying a raovac recharger ( although the recharged batterys dont quite last as long teh second time around .. its a heck of a lot cheaper then buying batteries all the time) Also the batteries you take out of your camera that are "dead" will still work in other items like remotes and game boys .. and calculators * coughs looks around all innocent * You have never lived till you have raided digital cameras for batteries for a calculator * pushes my invisable nerd glasses farther up my nose *

Hey Pimp, I just got that camera too! Its very user friendly and the resolution is great. Plus it has video with audio capabilities, and i got a 64 MB card and 32MB internal memory.

I highly recommend it.

Another good brand is Minolta, its a bit bulkier, but the quality is well worth it

I have a Minolta Dimage 300, 5.3 mp. its a great camera but the macro auto focus doesnt work as well as I would like, but with manuel focus its great. Im pretty happy with it, it was around $300 and I havent had any problems with it yet, I have had it for a year now.

I am a die hard Sony Fan, I use a cyber-shot 3.3mp for alot of my field work. It is light and simple to use. It has a few more options than most point and shoot cameras too. I also use a Sony DSC F828 which is a killer 8mp camera. It is going to the shop because of the abuse it takes while climbing Talus slopes. It is for a more advanced photographer and but takes some of the best pictures I have seen. As always I use Adobe Photoshop to clean up any problems but there are not many with my Sonys.

I bought (after extensive research) a canon A70 around March 2003. It's the best choice I've ever made. Image quality is excellent for a 3.2mp.

The Canon A series have been racking up plenty of awards. New are the A85 and A95 which have gotten great reviews and both are "best in class". They're relatively inexpensive, and offer great manual controls - more so than most other cameras.

The only problem is it takes about 0.5 sec to focus.

I've tried out the Sony W1 and T1 - both focus quickly and take exceptionally good photos. However, the menu for the Sony isn't as intuitive as the Canon (compare Motorola cell phones to Nokia's menu system here). Needless to say, I returned them both and am looking to get the Canon A95 instead (BestBuy is out of stock).

I would go with Canon first (and the new SD200 and SD300 are super secksie and have the fastest time to focus I have ever seen), and Sony second. I've also had problems with 3 Sony cameras (from work) with too much noise for indoor shots. If most of my shots were indoor pictures, I would definitely NEVER choose a Sony - the indoor shots were poor.

I'm glad I chose a Canon - I highly recommend it.

I've got the Nikon Coolpix 5700 ~ nice camera.

Only all my photos come out blurry, but that's because I have REALLY bad vision.. :blink: not because of the camera. People are always saying "it's all blurry" but it looks ok to me.. :mellow:

that's what happens when you have 20/50000000000 vision.. B)

I received the Sony Cybershot with new 5.1 pixel 3.0 optical zoom with 6x precision digital zoom mpeg movie, image stability built in and other specs on Saturday. Is anyone having success with this with their reptiles and for field herping ventures? Still saving on the Rebel but this will do for now. : )

I have to agree, Canon makes a very good digital camera, but I can't afford to buy one with the quality I want, so I just use the Fuji FinePix 5.2 MP camera I have from work. It is actually a great little camera, but I think that canon gets a noticably better quality photo in comparison.

Our camera is a Nikon Coolpix 2100. It's a good camera. The viewfinder is a little bit iffy sometimes (if you put your finger in front of the viewfinder, you'll still get a picture through the lens!!) but if you want to use the display anyway, who cares? One problem with it (that might also be a problem with other ones) is that the pictures are all too big to put straight on TurtleTimes as attachments, so we have to do LOTS of resizing. Most of them are around 300-400 KB.
We don't know the cost--it was a present--but it came with rechargeble batteries, a recharger, and a cable to connect it to the computer.
Also, it's not very good for close-ups.
HTH!

Hi all, I got a digital for Christmas it's a Kodak easyshare digital 3.1 pixels. It's very easy to use and the pictures have been great!! We also got the dock for ease of transfering and recharging.[<img src=]' />

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>



I think I got the same camera, about the same time. In March, it was $129 from Wal-mart. Now it's under $100. I like it, but wish it had better Macro mode. I can hardly take close-ups with it (3 feet and under is blurry). Also, if I had it to do over, I'd have gotten one with an optical zoom. The digital zoom is nice, but it adds nothing to resolution, so it's just like an editing tool.

I've taken all my pics with it, but when I upgrade, I'm definitely getting an optical zoom. It's called a Kodak EasyShare CX7300, about 3.2 Megapixels.

Hey guys, my fiance and I are headed to the Galapagos Islands for the honeymoon in October. I was wondering if anyone could recommend a fairly cheap digicam for around $1000 that would get the beautiful colour saturation that we'd want to document our trip. I'd also like a camera that can do wide angle and panoramic shots as well. Any recommendations?

YAHOO! Check out my new digital camera! It's a Canon Digital Rebel SLR. Check it out at Amazon.com, click here! I'm in love with it so far and I haven't taken one shot yet! The battery is charging as we speak, but I'm anxious to whip it out and snap some pics of the turts outside, and the lovely aldabras at the zoo! I'll let you guys know more as I experiment!

i use the Canon Powershot SD450. it has 5 Mega Pixels a great Macro mode. here are a few pictures ive taken with this camera.
