    Question Digital Cameras

    I want to buy a new camera - my last camera that I researched to death was a total dud and a complete waste of 800 clams. sigh.......

    So I want to spend less then $350.
    5 MP
    4x zoom
    and something that I could (even with a lens add on) be equal to a SLR 28mm lens.

    Suggestions?

    I'm thinking point and shoot nothing crazy.

    Thanks in advance

    Well, I'm no expert, but I just bought a Fuji FinePix E550. I researched for about 3 months, and this one got really great reviews. Here's a review that I found helpful: http://www.dcresource.com/reviews/fu...x_e550-review/

    The camera has:

    6.3 MP
    4 X Optical
    Option to use additional lenses

    The quality of prints I've got from this thing are AWESOME. The orig. price was 369, I got it for 200 on clearance....it was last year's model. Fuji has this year's model out that looks just as good, in the 350 range. ( the only thing that bothered me about the newer model--I can't remember the exact number of the model but it's in the E series-- was that it had no view finder. I didn't like the idea of not even having the option of using a veiw finder).

    I was also looking at Sonys, maybe someone has something to say about them. Ultimately I got the Fuji for the large-for-this-price-range MP. I have been THRILLED with this camera!

    How depressing. My digital camera was stolen on Friday. Just before my birthday. It was a nice camera but it's the photos that mean the most. Some people are so rude!

    My digital sucks and I'm back on good old fashioned manual 35mm. Love it and don't know why I ever left it.

    I'm so new at this digital thing, and I've been bucking about it ever since digicams became popular. I remember seeing the prints from my friends cameras and cringing. I am VERY PICKY about print quality. I said I'd NEVER have a digicam.

    My beloved 35mm took a crap and boy, was I pissed. I shopped around for 35mm before I finally thought I'd give digital a try. Now that I found this little gem of a camera (mentioned above), I am really starting to experience all the benefits. For my purposes (mostly point and shoot, family and kid pics), I couldn't ask for more gorgeous pics. I take photos almost every day (I know, I'm a photo addict).

    Anyway, just wanted to share that I'm a 35mm to digicam "convert".

    Mine is ancient - I've had it since 2002 and it's still great. Sony DSC something or other. I'm a product whore with a lot of things, but I only buy Sony for electronics. They never let me down.
