Anybody Knowledgable About Cameras?

User Profile
Chris & I are going to buy a digital camera..

I want to spend as little as possible,
but still get an amazing camera that'll
at least last me a couple of years &
take amazing pictures..

I want to spent a maximum of about $250.
$300 would be pushing it, but it's doable.

If anyone knows a decent amount about
digital cameras.. Would you be willing
to go to bestbuy.com & check it out for
me & tell me what would be good?

I would be super so grateful.

I just bought a Nikon Dx40. Because I considered my camera to be a major purchase, I want to know what 'the best' for me is. I did a lot of research. The circuit city website (gives user ratings) would be a good place to research a camera under $200 and I always like epinions. People who own or have owned the camera are going to be the best 'experts' to listen to.

We have the Casio Exilim. It was around 400 with the warranty. We bought it from an online store in New York. The prices were cheaper. The new version's been out for about a year or so, you'd probably be able to get it for less than what we paid. The warranty wasn't worth it either. It's an awesome camera.

I had a Sony Cybershot for several years in high school, and I loved it. It was the best camera ever. Recently I figured it was time to get a new one (and my husband and I had just gotten a new puppy and taking pictures with the sony was hard when she moved because of it's slow shutter speeds) so I looked around and tried out everything. I finally decided on a Canon Powershot SD750... and let me tell you, it will change your life if you enjoy taking pictures! It has face detection and a stabilization feature so it's almost impossible to take a blurry picture when you have decent lighting. The face detection picture is also wonderful... it recognizes up to eight faces in the frame (including cats and dogs) and targets them so that no matter what, the face comes out crystal clear. It also has a built in imageprocessor incase it actually DOES take a blurry picture, it fixes it right before your eyes and becomes clearer. In the store my husband and I picked it up and it recognized the faces of women shopping, and went they went behind an aisle out of view, it actually followed them and knew where they were THROUGH the wall! Also, it was amazing when we zoomed in all the way across the store to a television playing a movie, took a picture, and then saw the camera automatically process the picture and make it clear. It's so cool! Smile It has tons of features, and even though I was so used to and in love with Cybershots, transitioning to this camera was a breeze. It has a special feature where it lets you take a picture in black and white and select only one color to come through, and those are always awesome to see! It's a really great camera, and it's definitely the best you can get for the money. I got mine at target a few months ago, but it is available every where.

Just for an example, this is a picture I took the FIRST DAY I had the camera before I knew a thing about it. There's no extra features turned on and my puppy was as hyper as ever, as it was her first trip to the park:

I'm begging you to at least pick this camera up before you buy anything else! Laughing

We have a Nikon Coolpix and it is 6 megapixels. It is an awesome camera and easy to learn to use. We got it for less than $200 at Circuit City. I would defnitely look in to this brand at least.
