looking to buy a new digital camera ...was wondering if anyone could recommend one.......and what are some good features to look for when buying one????
iam looking to spend 2 to 300 on it ..i like one of the smaller ones.that way i can carry it along on the bike if i want ..or throw in my pocket or whatever ..lol..the one i have now uses 4 AA and it sucks up the battery life :crazy: .so rechargeable would be nice to have. how good is the hp photosmart ?.was looking at them ..but since u worked with them maybe u know something better in my price range.......i really like the sony cybershot but i think thats out of my price range thozx636r said:ahhhhh i worked in the digital camera section at Circuit city till this past november. how much you looking to spend total. you need 3mp and a good lense is always a plus. but the main thing is how much u looking to spend, cause u need a card an batteries to go along with it. are you looking for rechargable batteries like a cell phone has(lithium) or a camera you can put double AA batteries or rechargeable AA batteries in, lithium last alot longer. do you want a small camera or does it matter. larger cameras will have more zoom(i can show you how much with a pic i took at a dolphins game). all small cameras have likt 3Xoptical which is the standard. dont worry about the digital zoom it sucks and you dont want to use it.
cool deal.....thanks for ur help :cheers:zx636r said:i will look into it tonite and tommarow and get back to you with what i would do. i would not go with an hp, they make good computers and printers but there camera dept is jsut not the greatest. but 2-3 hundred will get you a pretty descent camera. also i will give you a site that i used to get mine will i was woking at Circuit cause it was cheaper than my discount. lol
awesome !...thanks i will check into those !....and again thanks for ur help :cheers:zx636r said:so far i came up with Nikon coolpix 4200 -$249 and you will need an SD card wich will cost around $50 but you can usually find cheaper. this is my #1 pix so far
Sondy DSCP-100 - $300 and dont forget you will need a Memory Stick memory card.
cannon power shot s410 -$250 you will need a CF Memory card
Sony dsc-t1 - $349 at ibuydigital.com and you will need Memory Stick memory card
this is what ifound so far all of them have rechargable lithium batteries that will usually last about 150-200 pics depending on the camera. i found good prices at circuit city.com and ibuydigital.com. you dont have to buy any extra batteries adn they are all pretty small. you will prob want to buy a 15-20 dollar card reader to get the pics off the camera, makes it a whole lot easier unless you have the card reader on the computer already. all are 3x optical and 4-5 Megapixels which is plenty if you want to print a 8x10. all are constructed very will and have good quality lenses on them.
i donno brands or whatever but we bought a SHARP and it is anything you ever need and it is cheap too!!! i am pleased with ity2k4gsxr600 said:looking to buy a new digital camera ...was wondering if anyone could recommend one.......and what are some good features to look for when buying one????
As zx hinted at, the more Megapixels, the larger the picture that you can print. Also, the more Megapixels, the farther you can zoom in on a picture that you've taken before it will start to "pix" out and get blurry.zx636r said:all are 3x optical and 4-5 Megapixels which is plenty if you want to print a 8x10. all are constructed very will and have good quality lenses on them.

Take a look at the "pro-sumer" digital SLRs, depending on your budget. They're really starting to come down in price, and they are a world away from the little point and shoot ones.3BoyzNaBike said:Yep works very nice, and does great pics. However, I am looking into getting a 5mp.... I do LOTS of pics and print them out so I need them to be more clear. I love my digi cam though, I can even do videos on mine.
I've been looking into those, but the price is still too high for my taste. Maybe in the future, though.SpeedWerks.com said:We upgraded Laura to the Digital Rebel last year
