Was just curious if you guys could recommend something...
Our new years is coming up in about a month or so, and we exchange presents. It's a bit like Christmas for us in that sense.
I was thinking about asking my parents for a digital camera, and I was wondering if any of you could recommend one? I can't make heads or tails or these sorts of things...
It doesn't need to be a very complex one, since I'm not really an aspiring photographer or anything. Just one that takes decent pictures, and has a modest price.
I have 2 different model Kodak digital cameras and both take exceptional pictures. The megapixel, be it 3, 6, 10, whatever, makes most difference when blowing pictures up. I don't have the limits off hand but even at 3 megapixels a person can get a pretty big photo made with no pixilating.(sp?)
sony makes quality point and shoots, so does canon. more megapixels isnt necesserily better, especially with point and shoots which have tiny sensors. kinda like squeezing a lot of fish in a small fish tank (i had to make a comparison lol). shoot for 12 mp and you should be ok... i recommend sony for their ease of use, lifespan and carl zeiss lens. i recommend canon, well just because.
oh yea, unless you're some sort of pro you will not be able to tell the difference in most cases.
I have a Kodak camera also and it's just a 'point and shoot' but it takes great pictures of my fish. It takes better pictures of my fish than my Nikon D40.lol
I have a canon power shot SX 10 IS but it was kind of expensive, it is a step down from having attachable lenses, but it's great for hobby photos, really fun to use!
I have a Casio Exilim
It's not the BEST camera, but it works!
Thanks for the input everyone! appreciate it. I checked the cameras and they weren't too expensive. We'll see how it goes. :)
