iv been looking at getting a new digital camera, im not big on photography and cropping pictures. i just want something that is somewhat slim and can fit into the pocket easy. my price range is around $250 since it seems that you can get some pretty decent cameras for that price. here is one that i have been looking at and very interested in

http://www.circuitcity.com/ssm/Sony-...oductDetail.do

they have a higher model for about $50 more but i read the only difference was 8.1 mp compared to 7.2 which didnt seem worth it since im not going to be blowing any pictures up to wear that would be a noticable difference

so can anyone let me know if im making a good choice or not because i honestly do not know that much about cameras, and if not can you recommend me one. thanks everyone!

I am not a Circuit City fan. Good stuff-to expensive.

You can check out other cameras and do comparisons on B & H's site.

I have no connection with B & H. Just love their service and low prices.

Forgot - go here and do some research: http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/forum.asp?forum=1009

Go for it, looks like a great camera. and you're right about the MP, 7.1 to 8 MP won't really change anyhting. You can still comfortably blow up 7MP a bit too. I normally shoot with my 8 mega pixel sensor set to medium or small which is about a 6 or 5 megapixel equivalent.


I drive a Mazda Rx-7, shoot a Canon 20D, and soon.......... I will use a Mac.

More often than not the real bottleneck is not the MP count but the lens itself!

There are also programs out there that will blow photos up for you. I have an 8mp DSLR and had a photo blown up to 20x30 with Genuine Fractals 5. It looked amazing.

IMHO, the Sony DSC-W-line is pretty good. I have had first had experience with the W100, and it takes very nice pictures and works great as a point-and-shoot model. It's size also makes it easy to drop in your pocket and go.
