    dcresource.com is a wonderful site for digicams Personally, if I were you, I'd go with a Canon A series for that budget.

    yeah, i have a canon powershot A85, and it's great...it can even survive an 8 foot drop onto concrete as i unfortunately found out. it cost me $280 when i got it, but i've seen them on sale for $250 recently. or if you don't need 4 megapixels, the A75 only costs about $200, and is 3.2 megapixels.

    Hey,

    I have just bought a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P73S Camera. Haven't got it yet (still in post) but from all the reviews on Amazon and the research i have done on it it looks like a pretty good camera for its money. its 4.1 Mega Pixels, 3X Optical Zoom, 2X Digital Zoom (& loads more stuff) and can even record video with sound! (cost me 129)

    Here's the link to it if you are interested:

    Regards,

    Chris.

    They say that the colours from sony cameras are not that close to mother natures and then their is the issue with the memory sticks, which are expensive because they are only made by sony (This may have changed by now if your lucky, I'm not sure). Sony tend to make products that only use Sony extras, this is a known Sony downside. :dive:

    If I were you I would definitely go with Canon. I've always been a huge fan of Canon. I have a A series Camera 3.2 and it's great. The pictures come out really nice and crisp.

    On a another note we had to a project for work Friday. This chic that was my partner used her Sony camera to take pictures. Quite honestly I was impressed. The pictures came out pretty **** clear.

    Sony makes the optics for 90% of the cameras out there. They are a real camera company Sony, Canon and Leica are the major optics players (camera body aside).

    Thanks Sony supporters, I was worrying then thinking that i (a poor student) had just forked out 129 on a camera that was "crap".

    Ill submit a little mini-review once i have used it for a while if it will help anyone?

    Cheers,

    Chris.

    For the price, Canon seems like the way to go. If I had an unlimited amount of money I might get an EOS digital SLR, or a Fuji, or a Nikon.
    'cause when it rains, you know it pours.

    I sold Cameras at Best Buy for a year, hated every minute I was in the store, but learned a lot. You def. want to stick with Canon or Nikon. Fuji is a good camera as well because of their octagonal pixels instead of the traditional rectangle pixels. You can pick up the Fuji A340 for $200 retail, probably $150 ish on eBay. Remember the camera is just the beginning, you still need an upgrade memory card, reason being, the memory card that comes with it is only good for 9-20 pictures at highest resolution. Depends on compression. Also, if you get a camera that uses AA's, get rechargable battries, or else in a time frame of a year, you have spent the price of the camera on battries.
