when BUYING a digital camera, always ASK for advice
    #2779372 - 06/09/04 10:52 PM (17 years, 4 months ago)

I'm in the market for a digital camera. Never owned one but it only seems like the next step. I am torn. It's either the Nikon 5 megapixel CoolPix 5700 with fixed lens and video recording capabilities of resolutions up to 640X480 ---or--- the new Canon Digital Rebel for 200 bucks more in cash, and abilities to change your lenses, fly through x-ray outspace, but the piece of plastic shit can't record video, only super high quality 6.3 megapixel images.

shitfuckshit

go for the Canon, if you're serious about recording videos then get a video camera. You'll get much better resolutions and sound, and you can record video for more than 5 seconds at a time.... I'm also in the market for a digital camera and I will definately get a Canon.

I've owned plenty of video cameras and I really don't mind the lower res, actually the Nikon can record 640 X 480 for up to 70 seconds and that's resolution eqivalent to hi8mm, cheap DV cameras, not badd. I just don't know if the jump is worth it. After the Nikon rebate, that camera would cost me $450 after shipping, the Canon would be $400 dollars more. Is that really worth it ? Just to have an interchangable lens and 1.3 more megapixels? I dunno. dSLRs seem to be dropping more and more every year...
