help me shop for a new digital camera.
    #3758485 - 02/09/05 10:26 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

i wanna spent around $200, but no more than $300.

The camera has to be comparable or better than the
Canon PowerShot A80

and it must be able to take video clip lengths up to 3 minutes.

plz provide links =)

Have you tried Ebay or overstock.com? I don't know anything about cameras.

I don't have any specific models to recommend, but I would highly suggest getting one with a manual focus option. You can get GREAT macro shots with the manual focus in comparison to the autofocus.

I've been looking at the Fuji Finepix S7000 Zoom.

6.3 megapixels which interpolates with the super CCD HR sensor to a whopping 12 megapixels! 6x optical zoom and a further 3.2 digital zoom. You can shoot macro as close as 1cm! Lets you control ISO and shutter-speed priority, RAW format support, continuous shooting. The list goes on..

You can pick them up reconditioned for a little over $300 although I'm looking at buying a new one.

I can defiantly vouch for Finepix, the newer ones are very nice but even the 3MP ones take amazing quality pics and are cheaper in price.
It kind of depends on what you will be taking pictures of, I chose something with a good macro ability because i do lots of closeups but was still able to take quality scenic pics.

yea, i just went in my picture gallery and picked a few out. That particular pic is very odd because I found that old abandoned house or shed, whatever it is, out in the middle of nowhere in some woods nearby.

This one looks ok:

You'll want to also get a memory card of whatever type the camera you buy takes. You should be able to get a 1GB SD card for under $80.

yup!

it was a pissing contest between the Canon a-85 ($229),
& the Fuji FinePix S3100 ($244),
after consulting a friend, we chose the Canon a-85.

just after i was closing all the browsers,
i stumbled upon the better A-95 for $284,
a $55 difference, no biggy.

sooo

the Canon A-95 it is! :thumbup:
w/a1 gig flashcard. w00t.:thumbup:

thank you all. 5 :mushroom2:'s all around  :ooo:

I have a Finepix S3100... I like it but the autofocus is not good for macro shots.... this frequently irritates me. I've heard good things about the A85 and A95, I'm sure it'll serve you well.

Err... excuse me... the autofocus in regular mode dies out at about <5 feet. Then you must move to macro mode, which only allows you to zoom about 2x.
