I've been putting off purchasing a digital camera, but I'm so disappointed in the quality of my "disposable" cameras that I can't take it any more!

Please let me know which camera you would recommend for great pictures of Sammie and family?

What is your budget? Also, how serious are you about photography? If your budget is small and you just want to take nice snapshots, I think Laura gave a good recommendation. If you're interested in more serious photography, then a Nikon or Canon entry level dSLR would be a better buy.

I've got the:

- Canon Powershot S1 IS
- Canon EOS 350D
- Canon Mark II

The first is +/- 340 / 400 $

The second come's as a kit +/- 800 $

The last one is a expensive one, and i gues that aint fit's in you're budget ... The Mark II (only the body) costs +/- 4000 $ :-X

I now have a Canon Powershot and they introduce new models every hour or so it seems. The most aggravating thing about my camera is the delay between hitting the button and the shutter actually taking the photo. If they ever have a contest of dog butt photos I'll have tons of entries. ;D
Also, unless you are a professional photographer I can't see any need for a camera over 5 megapixels. Think about it. A one meg photo is really too large to send via email or post on most sites.
Most cameras however do have a setting to adjust the size.

I have a Sony H5 and am happy with it. It is my first digital camera and I have become fully addicted!

It allows Auto or Manual functions which is really great and now that I've experience Manual functions I will never purchase another camera without that option! It has a 12X zoom which is awesome! It has the option of adding lenses (telephoto, close up, etc) later if you want to do that. But best of all is it has a monster 3" screen on the back of it!

The negatives of this camera to me are:
(1) its size - if you want one to fit in your pocket - this is not it! BUT I'm ok with putting up with that given the all the features of this camera!
(2) the battery life is NOT good! (So, I keep 2 sets of batteries on hand)

It is approximately $400.

You can see some photos I've taken with this camera (keep in mind I'm VERY amateur!!!) here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/kathy1976

I have an HP Photosmart 935, it is 5.3 megapixel.... it has the auto or manual settings and I like those choices. I am happy with it. the feature I MOST like, is the dock it sits in that attaches to my computer. I can sit the camera IN the dock, push a button and pics automatically transfer into the computer. The dock is also used to charge the batteries. They have a pretty good life too. AND, it is not an expensive camera, it is about 2 yrs old and I paid about $400 for it brand new. My husband has a Nikon Coolpix 8700 and it's a 10 megapixel. It is a fairly expensive camera, but it has the inter changable lenses ......he is a freelance photographer and I am just a hobby photographer.

I have the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-F828. I think it's probably comparable to the Cannon Rebel, but I'm not sure...I do LOVE it though! ;)
