    Question camera shopping.

    So I need a new camera. I've dropped mine way to many times, and now something is wrong with it. What am I looking for? at least 800 mp, SLR, uhm, and I don't really want to spend more than $700.

    Anyone have any suggestions? What type of camera's are you guys using?

    I'm not a tech person so I let my DH choose my camera. I just wanted something that is reasonably priced, takes good pics, easy to use and one I can carry everywhere. Mine is the Canon Digital IXUS 90IS. It's 10 megapixels, a large 3" LCD screen, image stabiliser, video. It looks good, but light on features though.

    I also use a Nikon D50. It's just a basic SLR camera with 6 MP but it takes great pics for my purposes. It's about AUD$700 (not sure how much in US) so you'll definitely get a way better camera for US$700.

    Good luck!

    I just saw this one - canon powershot g10. Seems pretty cool. Does anyone have it?

    I'm not very tech-ey either, I just want a cool camera. . That will last plus take cool pics.

    I'm off to circuit-city :gi67:

    Oooh exciting - for some reason I love cameras, even tho I only take happy snaps! I have a pink 8mp Samsung camera, but its not SLR. I know that Olympus are supposed to be a decent brand, I think Minolta were a good brand too. I think you can't really go wrong nowadays, i personally go for the prettiest and the best deal combined lol :) Youll have to let us know what you decide on though!

    Also remember that there is a difference between digital zoom and optical zoom. You want the optical zoom over the digital because the digital just blows the image up digitally and it can start to get fuzzy. I also like a macro/micro setting so I can take pictures of things close up without them getting blurry. We have a Sony Super Steady Shot DSC-H5. It's a pretty bulky camera, which is a downside. But Mr BRS wanted one you could buy fancy lenses for.

    I'm looking for a new camera too. I like the Nikon S60 touchscreen but I am afraid that its cooler on looks and features, rather then how it takes pictures. Has anyone heard any reviews? I've googled reviews but it's too new!

    Thanks everyone for you input.

    Lets see, I've narrowed it down to either Nikon or Canon (I heard those are the best brands). brs, yeah I'm definitely looking for an optical zoom.

    winnie - you have the G9?? So are you happy with it? I was reading a bunch of reviews out there saying that the G10 (the newer model + G9) is the best camera out there for that price.
