    Digital Cameras

    So which kind do you have. My old camera is the Minolta Dimage X and my mom's is a Konica Minolta Dimage 2x.

    I am looking on this site for digital cameras.


    Digital Camera HQ

    I forgot to mention. I am looking for a camera that I can use anywhere I go. I love to take pictures especially at the baseball games. I am looking for a camera that has an extended zoom but is small enough for me to carry in my purse or a small bag. I need the camera to have everything on it : zoom capability,6+ megapixels,auto/manual focus,LCD screen, and shake resisted ( if I am jumping up and down at the baseball games) and I want to take a picture that will allow it to remain still.


    Can anyone recommend another brand.

    I wouldn't own anything except a Sony. The new small DSC-W50 is a great product.

    Nah that couldn't be possible, L-1. You aren't that old.


    I think I am going to have them buy me a Canon digital camera. So far that is the one I like the best. It has everything that I am looking for and more. But I am still going to look around at all the cameras that Canon and Kodak make.

    BBB, I am SO glad you started this thread. I am looking for a digital camera.

    This is a great feature. I'll put it on the list of things I am looking for. With the camera I have now, I have to go develop the pictures and ask for them on a CD, or later go scan them someplace, if I want to email pictures.

    Whatever you decide on, buy it at Costco. Costco has a little known policy that says, "..if you are ever dissatisfied with one of our products, bring it back for a full refund, no questions asked." (There is no time limit except for computers, which have a six month return window.)
    Another good tip!

    I recently purchased a Kodak Z740 with 5.36 mp and 10x optical zoom, paid under three hundred, then paid 50 bucks for 1gb mem card, holds like 600 pics. The 5.36 mp is more than enough, takes great pics and very nice camera. Alot of camera for the money!

    Here's a link.

    Here's a link for the Z650, which has 6.1 mp.

    I also recently purchased the Kodak Z740 and I have been really pleased with it. It has a lot of features for taking pics at night, in bright light, etc and the quality of the pics is consistently great.

    And yes....when you get one, we expect self pics on here.......

    Back on topic.....make sure you get a high resolution so your pics look good. I have heard that any camera above 5.0 mega Pixels is good......

    In my first post, I put what I was looking for. I definitely want a camera with 6+ megapixels.


    Ha ha ..... smart *****

(There is no time limit except for computers, which have a six month return window.) I think no one pays attention to the guarantee because it is such a fantastic deal (no one believes it to be true or has the balls to try it).

    Some time back I bought a $600 laser fax at Costco. Five years later (more than its projected lifespan) it died on me. Just for the heck of it, I took it back to Costco to see what their reaction would be. The clerk said she was sorry but there was a problem. When i asked what it was, she said that I purchased it with a Discover card, which Costco no longer takes, and asked if it would be too much of an inconvenience if she gave me cash instead of a credit on my card. Since then I have bought all my big ticket items at Costco. It sure beats paying for an extended warranty somewhere else.

    This camera will be for personal use not for work. But thanks for the tips in case something like this ever happens.
