A little help

As you can all probably tell by now, from lack of picture posting, I smoked my camera. Anybody have any suggestions for a digital camera in the $150 - $200 price range?

Re: A little help

Well I just take that chunk o dinero and head off to Wally World and axe the person in charge of the deparmento camara photographica which is the best in your price range. Use it for a while and take it back if you dont like it. Simple huh? Now optical zooms is mo betta than digital or so I heard one time so look for the one with the highest optical zoom. Get the highest mega pixles you can afford. Make sure it made by a jap.

Re: A little help

I have been happy with my Olympus 850. The feature I like is that it is waterproof. I took pics snorkeling on the Great Barrier Reef, rinsed it off with fresh water and it is still taking great pics.

Re: A little help

Wow that water proof technolgy sounds great. Wished the smart injuneers could do that to cell phones. I done dropped two into the cement pond..sniff sniff. They do not work worth a caca when they come out. Not to even mention getting stuck out in a rainstorm with the gizmo in your shirt pocket. Course if they water proofed em they wouldnt sell near as many...or at least they wouldnt get so much outta me anyway.

Re: A little help

Nick I use a Canon Powershot SD750 Digital Elph 7.1MP and highly recommend them. I've had three... You can easily get one for under $200.

Re: A little help

DON'T think that more megapixels make a better camera!

Get educated here http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/

THEN decide.

They do make waterproof cell phones. My son, the duck hunter, got one 'cause he kept trashing them getting them wet.
