and I know I have asked this question before:

What type of digital camera do you recommend? I tried to take pics today and my little cheap one is totally dead. It gave me good use.

I know Lake has told me that she has a Canon power or sure shot something. I tried to find the e mail tonite that I saved but I couldn't locate it.

I really would like to stay in the $200's. I also prefer Canon for some reason but I am open to all suggestions.

I have to buy one soon so I can take pics of my events.

Thanks in advance

and people like Fuji. So I bought one. A good, fairly expensive (to me) one. It was $300, had a 10x zoom, 7 megapixel and a setting for everything. I dropped it and it's in the shop. CopCop has one too. It's a great camera - idiot proof. You turn the dial and it tells you what setting you are using. Sigh. I miss my camera. If they can't fix it I am buying a cheap one because apparently, I cannot be trusted with expensive electronics. I have killed one laptop and two cameras. Good luck on your search.

onto the concrete floor of the garage. No dents, no problems, and I can't even find a scratch on it. I've had it a couple of years now and it still works without a glitch which leads me to recommend that you might consider looking for a used one (they should be cheap now). If you do that, look for one with a 256mb memory card or buy that card -- it allows for many, many photos to be stored in the camera before downloading.

Or, of course, take Mrs. Fury's excellent advice. She takes beautiful photographs.

I think Canon makes a good camera, too.

I also have heard good things about the Canons.  I bought a new camera last spring and I'm really happy with it.  It's a Casio Exilm EX-Z20, and cost about $175.  The features that were important to me were:  ability to take an SD card (instead of that other kind, can't remember its name); a big viewing screen at the back; and a good macro setting for food.  Mr. Lake is right about getting a larger SD card - in fact I have a 1 gig one that never seems to get full even when I shoot movies.  The camera is nice and small, fits easily in a pocket.  Mrs. Fury's camera is quite big and looks extremely professional - in fact I'd venture to guess that she can change lenses on it, just like an old SLR.  And she takes the best photos 'round here, I think!

Takes beautiful pix, biggest screen on back and is the size of a pack of cards, perfect for putting in your pocket.

My husband has the Canon SureShot, but I find it too bulky and too heavy.

store recondiitoned like new. I love it, It is the size of a pack of cig but it is only 3x zoom you would probably want something higher than that. I Love it. I am forever filling the memory card.

I am going to take a ride to Best Buy today.

I wouldn't have known about the memory on the card and the comparison is great.

I will probably end up spending 300. or so I am guessing. I just want something good and compact. I want to slip it in my chef coat pocket or put it in my bag without taking up much space.

Will take some pics later and post

Is there a free website that allows you to upload pics and post? Picturetrail is not telling me I am out of space and I have to pay. Just want to make sure I can't go to another one without spending the money.
