Thinking about a new digi cam-need help

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I am thinking about getting a new digital camera temporarily since we are having issues with my old one. I'd like to get one for under $150 since it'll be temporary but I'd like for it to have a flash. Does anybody have any that they have had experience with and liked??

I don't know the price, but we love our Kodak Easyshare. It is at least 4 years old now and still does an excellent job!

I have the Kodak C360 easyshare 5mpxls, digital and optical zoom. It cost about that. I also have a fab printer that goes with it but obviously thats optional.
How come its just temporary?

I paid just about $150.00 for mine at Wal Mart, and It does very nicely for me. It is an HP Photosmart M415, 5.2 MP, 3X optical zoom, built-in flash. I think this model has been discontinued, but they may still have something similar for a comparable price. I know there are lower-priced cameras available, but they may have lower resolution and fewer features. What you spend depends on what you need and want, I guess. Good luck.

I was kind of looking at this one even though it's up around $200.

They are both cool but if it's just temporary why spend so much money? You could just get your current one fixed?

That looks pretty good, especially since it comes with its own rechargable battery. I had to buy rechargable AA's for mine.

The one I have now is old and kind of a POS. We were thinking Tara's dad would get us a nice one as a wedding gift but if I find a decent one we might just pick it up instead.

I was looking at one of those too but I need something with more zoom, which everything costs more. So I lied about my budget.


I really like this one so far:

I am going to the store tonight to see if they have one I think.

I have had this Sony Cybershot for about 3 years:

I definitely recommend it. There are many features, many of which I haven't even used yet.

There was a stunning picture in Fur Pictures of a Bengal leaping off a cat tree, and went on to say which camera he/she had used. it must be much faster than most digitals. If I had tried that sort of shot the cat would have been gone before the shutter clicked. I can't find the link to it but it is in fur pictures somewhere.

i have the kodak easyshare C310 comes with different flash settinf lcd screen and printer dock i had to buy an extra memory card so now instead of 68 pics it holds 156 i love it and take all my pictures with it. i spent about $200 for mine with everything except memory card included.

these are some of the photographs i have taken with this camera you can set the camera itsself to black and white or sepia tone if you want to.

I can definitely recommend HP Photosmart. I have the 735, which is no longer available new. Features, specs, etc here. On the basis of this experience, I'd certainly buy HP again, and unless I develop a need for lots of bells and whistles, I'd probably stay close to the bottom of the line, rather than spend a lot of $$. This one was under $200 CDN new.

I ended up with the Kodak EasyShare Z740. I've only taken 5 pictures so far, but I am in love with it!!!
