Digital Camera
    #4072058 - 04/19/05 12:17 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

Hey guys, I'm headed out to California for the Coachella music festival next weekend, and also taking a swing through Joshua Treee.

I need a digital camera. Good quality, SMALL, and under 200 definitely. Got any suggestions?

Edit: Need it by THIS FRIDAY to lend to a friend flying to Mexico. So it can't be shipped, I need to go buy one cheap.

i haven't looked into new cameras in a while, but lok around on ebay. if you spend 300 you can find a nice one. if you have only 200 you can find some good ones but you gotta look around and see what there is. heres one http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=30015&item=7508229555&rd=1

it ends in 7 minutes so you gotta be quick.. but theres many more on ebay

Not much. Need the camera by Friday this week though so I can't really order it from anyplace that it'd be shipped from.

yea ordering it online is the cheapest but since you are on a dealine, you will have to check out local stores. they are usually very overpriced. Id say check for sales maybe you can find something good at electronics stores. good luck

My camera was about $250 Canadian, so it would probably be just under $200 USD. It's a Casio QV-R40 with 4 megapixel. Takes SD memory cards. Quite small, about 3" x 2" x 1" and very lightweight.

It doesn't have any fancy features or anything (though it does take NICE quality photos, surprisingly nice), but if all you want is a camera to take pictures with this is a good one!

Thanks trendal...would you say this camera is relatively easy to use? I think I'm splitting it with someone who wants something he doesn't have to learn how to use at all. I also was hoping for something I could hook right into a computer..

Yeah it's about as easy to use as digital cameras get :grin:

All you have to do is turn it on, point, and press the button. When you plug it into your computer via USB cable, it shows up as a removable hard disk so you just open it from My Computer like you would any disk and copy the pictures from there.

^camera repair shop. sometimes staples will even help ya out.

ive always had good results with HP. and the older cannons are way down in price.

i think youll find that most of those cams will take similar quality pics on tripods. my biggest problem is doing it in hand. but most cheaper cameras are all auto and snap fast in good light.

Hey Photoguy, B and H is definitely amazing, I do film so I go there for equipment when I need it. The people there aren't always nice...

goddamn jews.... JK...sorta!

Yeah, if the universe has a temple for me, its B and H. When i go, i never seem to leave without maxing out a few credit cards! But thats ok, when its something you love.

Just wish they had a B and H for drugs! Then THAT would be my new home!

Whatever camera you go with, dont go with H P. They make printers, not good cameras.

Canon, Sony, Fuji, and nikon if you have to. You will not be upset with any of them.

I would NEVER buy anything but a printer from HP...anyone who buys their computers or other technologies are fools.

Yeah, thing is I grew up Jewish and I just find the Orthodox to be very often haughty and obnoxious, and that definitely goes for B and H. Sometimes they're charming and funny, othertimes they're all holier-than-thou all the time.

their printers aren't the best. their calculators, otoh, are. HP makes some amazing biochem and general laboratory machines as well.

And their point and shoot (unprofessional, this seems to be the case) cameras are quite good and cheap.

I just got a Nikon Coolpix 4600 off Amazon for <$200. Its a great camera compared to the 2 HPs I've had. Check my recent "Spring Walk" ethnobotanical garden post for pics.
