I am looking into getting a digital camera and was wondering if you all had any you would recommend between $ 75.00 to $ 100.00. :clap:

I know of nothing available in that price range worth having. Perhaps you could find something on EBay you could bid on.

I'm looking at digital cameras myself right now. (My son did tell me to check ebay). I was looking at the Olympus C-3000Z (3.34 Megapixel), but decided it was a little too complicated so I backed down to the Olympus Camedia D-510 Zoom, 2.1 Megapixels. I've been photographing my work with my Minolta SLR and I usually get good shots (if I don't catch a glare) but by the time I have them developed, scan, move to Photo, edit, etc. I could die from old age!! I think it would be a lot easier with a digital - but I do not want to spend more than $400! The main thing I've learned is the higher the pixels the higher the price and the more complicated the camera. Any opinions or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I use the SONY mavica serries cammeras and they are easy to use and they have several models that that range from 250-1000 bucks, for around 350 you can get 3.1 meg. pix., the cammera can use reg. 3.5 floppy or mem sticks. has 3.5 lcd screen and is very easy to use if you drop to the next model 2.? meg pix and it uses only 3.5 floppys but they have adaptors you can get so you can use the mem sticks. if you have the coin to drop the newest mavica uses mem sticks or 3" mini cds, has the digi cam main body but the lens is alot like a 35mm but its 1000 bucks....

the one i use is the FD83 its a 1mp camera it can take movies and stills. the stills sizes range from 640x480 to 1216x912. i can get 30-40 sec movies at 640x480 on a 3.5 floppy. i love this cammera use it daily.


hope this helps

I would suggest one of two things:

Try to check out sales (with upcoming Christmas, if you can wait until AFTER Christmas, you may just be able to get a kick-butt deal with end-of-year merchandise),

or

Try to find either local swap meets or flea markets, or check out individual sellers in the classified ads ('tis the season to get rid of the old, and in with the new in the form of X-mas presents, so there's likely to be many people selling thier "old" digital cameras so that they can get the new upgraded ones for Christmas!)

Hope this helps you out! I've yet to get a digital camera (although my husband keeps begging for us to get one . . . ) so I don't really have any recommendations on best brands, but I do know how to sniff out sales! :D

For basic computer monitor stuff, there is a 640 x 480 camera from Tigerdirect for under $50 (after rebate), SiPix iQuest.

http://www.tigerdirect.com/

They have good selections and I've never had a problem with them.

Remember that you usually pay for what you get for.

I'll bet the only way to zoom with the SiPix is to throw it at the subject.

A zoom lens alone will cost more than $100 or so.

Good luck.
