  • Need advice: Looking to get a Digital camera soon

    I am looking at getting a Digital camera soon (since film would cost alot more for the amount I could be using it), and need people's experiences with there Digital camera's.

    I am seriously looking at the Nikon CoolPix 995. I heard that the next model may be announced on May 29 which is next Wednesday. If that is true, I will get the Nikon CoolPix 995 when the price drops to $800 Canadian.

    I would like to see your pictures from your camera's at the highest res, so I can see what they can do.v

    Hi there,

    if you are looking for a compact and great digital camera, I can recommend the Canon Digital Ixus line, great quality and very handy.

        As an alternative, the small Sony Px cameras are good. I have a P5 I think P7 is the new one now. I also liked the Canon range. Have a look at www.dpreview.com

            My personal camera is a Fuji Finepix 6900 Zoom (which I love) but I've recently been playing with a Fuji Finepix 2800 Zoom and I have to say that it's very hard to get a better camera for the same money or even a bit more.

              I am going to get the Sony Mavica MVC CD-400
              It's looks like an awesome camera, from the reviews I've read.

                To me it looks expensive, large, uses stupid little CDs which you have to write to, ie much slower than flash memory. Just seems too large. The other cybershoot sony with the zoom if that is what you want this looks nicer to me.

                  Stupid little 3 inch 156MB CD-R's or CD-RW's, which you can store several hundred images, all for 4 dollars or less. Compare that to a 16MB Memory Stick which you can store a few images on, for about 40 dollars. Plus you can pop the CD in any computer, and transfer the images directly. No need to install any software, or use cables. Also, this camera has a lot of other nice features, and can do everything your average SLR can do.

                    Kier, I totally agree about the fuji finepix line. I adore my finepix 1300 even if it's really low end these days. The finepix line is reasonably priced, high in features and fairly easy to learn to use.

                      The cheap storage is an advantage for wrting to cdr but comes at the cost of reduced battery life (spinning that cd is going to drain it), increased size and reduced speed in taking multiple shots (slower to write to a cdr than flash) as well as increased cost. If it is the price of the cdr's that is attractive then you would get the savings buy buying a cheaper card and more flash memory. For true SLR camera the best, i recon, is:

                      but at 2.5 times the price it is an awful lot of money for a camera

                        I love my Fuji FinePix A201 its been such a good toy, and the 64mb Flash memory is good, i purchased a flash/smart memory card reader to save me plugging the camera in and its so much better.

                          I have the 995 and do recommend it. If I can help at all just let me know. I was able to get it for about $500 U.S. a couple months back with an extra 128 meg card.
