Digital Camera suggestions?

Post  happyfrog on 5/10/2010, 8:41 am

My digital camera had an unfortunate accident this weekend. As a result, I'm looking for a new one.

What do you all suggest/love?

I prefer inexpensive but decent resolution . .

I take about 3,000 photos a year and probably about 20 videos annually.

I also have young children. which is why my camera seems to die after about a year. . . this time, the viewing screen was shattered but we don't know how it happened. . . camera appears ok and even still takes pics but you have no way of previewing what you're taking a pic of so you're literally shooting blind.

so do share what you're using and why you like it. Smile it will help me on my search for a new camera. . .

I'm using a Polaroid i835. I got it on sale at Big Lots for $60.00. I love the way it has an internal memory plus I can use a card to add more memory, it takes great pics, the view screen is large, and it's pretty straightforward to operate. I've never tried the video feature. The only downside is it doesn't have an AC adaptor and it eats through batteries like crazy. I got around that by purchasing two sets of rechargable batteries so I can switch out easily. But on long trips, especially abroad, it might be a problem. Other than that, it's a great camera given it's price.

I bought our new camera because it's rechargeable so it doesn't devour batteries and because it also does videos. It's a Nikon Coolpix and I really like it.

thanks ya'll!

i currently have nikon coolpix S560 and it works even though the viewing screen is completely broken - so no idea of what i'm taking a pic of til i dock with computer, lol.

i'm gonna be watching for sales i'm hoping to get a decent camera for under a hundred dollars. ..

i do miss my canon g2, though. that was my first digital and man, that thing was SWEET! had a few others since then, each time, getting a 'cheaper' camera because of finances, lol.

i'm hoping to find a decent camera that also has remote so we can do group photos easier. the timer method on the curretn camera drove us bonkers when we took our annual pic (our avatar) it was challenging to say the least to get that shot, running back and forth and hoping everyone was posed right at same time when flash went off. . .

Digital cameras

Post  carolintexas on 5/11/2010, 10:03 am

My digital camera is the best toy I ever had! I have had two Kodak Easy Shares and highly recommend them for an inexpensive but very good little camera. I take 1000's of photos and have let my grandsons use my cameras since they were big enough to hold the camera. The first Easy Share I just wore out and the second...a five mp...was old but worked just fine until my puppy got it and used it for a chew toy. To replace it I got a Canon Powershot 12.1 mp and I love it. Chose it over another Kodak as I got really good deal on a bundle with case' memory card etc...plus I wanted one with a rechargable battery. My kodak easy shares did not eat through batteries as fast as some cameras. Go to your library and ask if they have consumer reports...you can look up how they rate cameras.

I have a kodak easy share, but

I absolutely love the cannon sure shot 12.0 pixels or something like that. It is a nice looking camera with a zoom and everything under $200.

cheaper if you have a pawn shop.
