I need your help. I'm looking to buy a reasonably priced digital camera that's of a decent quality. I need to have some control over the shutter speed, an optical zoom of atleast 3x, and it has to support SD cards. Of course I want a DSLR like this...



...but I simply can't afford $900-$1,200 for a camera at this time. I was checking this one out which seemed to fit most of my needs, but I am concerned that it may not be good enough.



Thoughts? Recommendations? Please?

I believe Glue's wife is a professional photographer. He'll probably be able to help you.


I currently have a Samsung Digimax D53.

It has 5 mega pixels, 3x optical zoom, and a 2.4 ince lcd screen.

What was the price range you were looking at?

Best Buy has some around $200-$300 that are 6+ megapixels with an optical zoom of at least 3x...

The cheaper the better...but I suppose I could drop $200 if it was a good enough deal.

6.0 megapixel, 4x optical zoom

8.0 megapixel, 5x optical zoom

Full page of digital cameras under $199

I was actually looking to get Cyn a digital camera for her birthday (decided to maybe go away from the mp3 player) and was looking at some of these. Apparently her mom got me a digital camera for Christmas though, so for now I'm holding off on looking further into digital cameras.

Xero I think I can give you a hand on this.

If you want a good camera with good ahutter speed you'll need to ro fork out some extra dough. I have a Fujifilm S5600 and I think this is the best digital camera I have ever purchsed. Granted it's not 200 bucks and it uses the XD card but I think it's the closest you can get to a digital SLR camera. Also you can add solar filters and lenses to this camera.



Althou I gotta admit that the Pentax K10D you just posted is really nice too. But I would of liked to see an actual picture taken with that camera.

Yeah...I'm thinking I'll have to hold off on the camera for a while and save up so I can get myself one that I'll actually be happy with.

Yeah that's what I had to do as well. Mine was 400 dollars in a bundle deal but I am more than satisfied with the picture quality and the abilities the camera has. My dad is more hardcore than me on digital photography thou, he has a Canon Digital Rebel XT.

I almost bought the XT, but the xti had just came out so I went with it. I love it, but I think it might be alittle out of his price range.

The wife hasn't really taken the transition to digital photography well. We like Film. In looking to convert to a digital camera, we find we have to go at least 10 mpx, and to be honest we haven't even looked into shutter speed at this time, but what we've seen thusfar we are going to need at least a grand for.

I'll ask a friend who uses all digital. He's actually pretty good w/ PS, and it's looking like PS + high end digital cameras are where photography is going to be. But his rig set him back a fucking grip. He rocks a 10 megapixel Canon, said it ran close to a grand...and he's looking to upgrade in the near future...



^^I'm pretty sure that was what he had...

But that's what this guy does. The wife is part time and shit, word of mouth advertising, etc etc...this guy is year round, all day every day. I'll see if there's any kind of bargains he's aware of.

Basically though, it takes a lot of green to get a really nice camera.



And I'm sure it's nice, but I don't think this is what you're looking for...

This is what the wife and I are looking into w/ the Tax Monies...

Late.

My dad is a photo Junkie. He has all sorts of filters, lenses and even that additional flash that you connect on top. He is retired so that keeps him occupied and happy. He has taken REALLY nice pictures and some on the odd side. He took a picture of the head of a squirrel he saw after a storm.

I bought mine at a local camera store. I bought a package deal with it. So the total was $1200 plus tax. But I got a better lens, and an extra battery, software, nice bag, some books, and a few filters. It was a much better deal that Best Buy because I got so much more, but it did cost more.
