Pencam, i was originally going to put it in a rocket but decided not to. I am going to *try* to get a better cam, this thing doesn't take a pic half the time due to low light settings. Maybe this should be in another thread, but what is a good digicam for under or around 100 dollars?

In my opinion... digital cameras under $200 are not worth their money. My suggestion... go to Target, get a Canon A60. It is a 2.0 megapixel camera (which is enough), great optical and digital zoom, fast, video mode with sound, and multishot mode. For $200. You can get $20 off if you get a target card (if you don't have one already). Most Digital cameras under $250 don't have optical zoom. This camera has 3x zoom.

I have a Canon A40, the ancestor of the A60, and I love it :)

Those pics are kinda big filesize, the camera has a compression feature so I will try that and see how it works.

Test:

Best setting speed and aperture depend on the day. I shoot a lot of sports at 1/1000 w/ f 3.2 On a nice clear day though when I want everything in focus and am looking for a higher up shot with the smoke trial I go to F 11 or 16 on 1/125 or 1/250....but with experience you will get it - I am an avid outdoor photographer as well as a wedding photographer and do some model shoots..takes a while to perfect an art - I'm still not there and never will be...

My cams got a 10X optical zoom with a 2X digital zoom, can do pics, vids, sound ETC, and comes with a 16MB card standard...

I have no idea what it costs... Its a fujifilm S5000.


Man o man you KNOW I am bored when I am surfing through area 51....:eek:

Glad to hear the Canon cameras are good. We just received our new digital cam today. The A75. I've been playing with it a bit, and it'll take me a while to learn all the functions of this thing! So far though, it seems like a great little camera.
