I love my Kodak Easy Share camera... I have had it for prolly 2yrs now.. I love that I can hook it up to my computer or just hook it up to the easy dock and print photos that way... I usually do this when I go home to WV... I got it when they had a deal going I got the camera, all software, easy dock, paper, and everything else I needed for it...

Yes, I'd forgotten about Kodak. They are good, too.

I love, love love my Canon Powershot. It's been going strong for 6 years, no problems whatsoever. Around Christmas I got some money to blow and I did consider replacing it with a newer Powershot because the newer ones take li'l videos...but I decided against it because I couldn't justify the expense. It really is a little workhorse, and it doesn everything I need it to. Did I mention that I love my camera?

I've bought 6 other Powershots for work and they have all been great too -- whatever you decide on, just make sure you get optical zoom and digital zoom, not just digital zoom. IMHO. :D

I use rechargeable batteries in mine. Not real sure how long each charge lasts since I don't use the camera as often as some others do. They seem to last thru several shooting sessions. I make sure to recharge them if something important is coming up in the near future.

I've been after several people in here who shall not be named to get rechargeables! Two sets of rechargeables and you won't have problems not having batteries available. They may cost a little more, but they pay for themselves quickly. Regular batteries don't last too long usually. I've bought the rechargeables at Radio Shack and they are fine.

I also HIGHLY recommend getting a card reader. It seems that is another problem in here...people losing the cable to connect the camera to the computer. Besides when you connect like that it uses up the battery even more. Mine is a Sandisk 12 in 1, but there are other readers out there that will work as well.

BTW...some cameras come with a proprietary rechargeables so check before you buy anything. Oh and two of my daughers have the Canon Powershots and love them, too.

I had absolutely no experience with digitals before I got my Kodak. I've always loved, and generally prefer, my Nikon SLR. However, I found the Kodak easy to use, and the softwear that comes with it is easy to use, too. You can also share photos on the Kodak site, so people are not coming you your computer to look at them. I like that.

I have kodak easy share as well, and with my 512 MB card, I can hold over 700 pictures which are above average resolution on it. I wish I had a Canon RebelXT, but alas that's a long shot and is very expensive to me. I'd say if you just need to take pictures of projects, or want decent pictures of family and whatnot, go ahead and get a kodak easy share.

If u want to be a pro, get a SLR camera.

This is the best little digital camera on the market right now...

Sony DSC-N1



I bought 7 of these for our top sales accociates this year and one for my mom. They were a huge hit at the anual sales meeting, everyone loves them. Super easy to use (my mom uses her's avidly, that's saying alot), most functions are accessed through the touch screen. Great auto-focus but, you can also set everything manually. The size is perfect. Small enough to go with you anywhere and yet not too small, so it's not awkward to use. Not to mention a whopping 8.1 mega pixels, 3x optical zoom and huge LCD screen. Too cool to really explain how cool it is. You want this camera, trust me.

P.S. Don't forget to order a 1GB memory stick DUO for it. You'll want it especially if you take 8mp photos and it's not much more expensive than the 512mb.
