    Default Digital camera

    Do you yall have any recommendations for a decent digital camera that is not too pricey. Features to look for or that are not necessary. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    I am thinking about buying one also, and a friend of mine that knows alot about cameras pointed me towards the website www.dpreview.com. He said that it has everything that you want to know about digital cameras and then some.

    One thing I REALLY like is mine has a docking port. The docking port stays plugged into the computer. To charge the camera or upload pics to the computer you set the camera in the docking port and press a button.....VOILA! Pics on your computer that you can now email to people.

    It is worth the extra bucks though to get one of those like the Sony Maverick too. Mine is "slow" when taking the pic. Has a couple of second delays and that is the difference between a puppy sitting and a puppy running full speed at you.

    I'd love to know if there are any digital cameras out there that don't have the delay on the shutter?! I love my digital camera, (Some Olympus model) other than that darn delay.

    I'm afraid I'm going to smash the shutter button. I find myself holding that button down REALLY HARD on action shots, as if it will make the camera fire more quickly.

    We really realized how much of a hassle this was when my wife was trying to get a shot of the boy riding on a merry-go-round. She had to start pressing the button before he was even in view and then swing the camera on him as he went by! What a hassle!

    Are there digital cameras out there that pop when you push the button? Like a film camera? That would be a feature worth having unless you're always shooting willing subjects who are still and know to stay still..... Seems those are rarely the type of shots I want to shoot.

    I feel your pain Chris.........ugh!

    The sony mavicka does not have the delay. But it saves the pics to disc. Maybe they have a docking port for them now?

    I just bought a 4.0 megapixel Kodak easy share.

    The pictures I took at the National Open came out great, easy to use and fairly inexpensive. They have several models

    Chris,

    I have the same camera that you have, love it. It is a C4000, price about $400, the only problem with it that the menus can be confusing till you get use to them and it is only 3X optical zoom. I would suggest though getting a 128 meg card for it. With this card you can shoot 135 photos at the highest JPEG resolution. TIFF is a different story.

    I'm a big Olympus fan.
    A lot of people are afraid of heights. Not me, I'm afraid of widths.

    I am with you kjrice. Mu Olympus has a manual f-stop and shutter speed.

    I like it.
