    Okay, I am going out thursday or friday to buy a new camera. I would really like your input.

    I am pretty good with cameras so I wouldn't call myself a novice BUT I am also in no way an expert!

    I would like a camera that takes excellent pictures without having to manually zoom everytime. I dont mind doing it for still shots but if I need a quick picture of something I do not want to be fiddling with the lens either.

    I would like something more than just an "average" digital. I have a nice digital now but it's a small one and doesnt zoom much.

    Any feedback would be excellent, maybe even some examples of pictures taken with your camera??!!

    Thanks in advance for your time and I am so excited to see everyone's opinion!!!!

    MandyH You'll shoot your eye out!

    I've got a Minolta 7D DSLR with 4 lenses, flash, yada yada yada that I'm fixing to get rid of and go to a Canon. I just don't have the cash right now to switch over. This Minolta does so much stuff that I will never learn all the functions til the day I die. It's jsut a wee bit more camera than I needed, but HAD to have it. Right now Canon is the leader in DSLR's.

    I got a Canon Rebel xTi used for 750 or so, I also got a fancy lens for a good deal, cant remember what the name of it is. They are good cameras, but what is your budget??

    I have a zlr and it has been great for me. It's not a point and shoot, but it doesn't have all the lenses to mess with either. Its an olympus sp560 UZ with an 18X zoom. They have one now with a 20X zoom, but mine works just fine.

    I would love to get an SLR but I just don't have the money right now. I would definitely recommend the olympus though! It can work as a point and shoot when you want it too, but it is also more advanced when you feel like playing around with things. Fairly cheap too. Mine cost me about $400 a year and a half ago.

    If you can afford a dslr, GO FOR IT!!! I've been getting new kodaks every couple a years as this one malfunctions and that one breaks down. I always thought you just could not get a good pic indoors... then I got my Nikon 5000d Oh sweet heavans, I LOVE LOVE LOVE this camera. I thank my husband a couple times a weeks still! for letting me get it. (Christmas present) It was more money than I ever thought I would spend on a camera ($800 for body,18-55mm and 75-200mm ..I think bundle) The seperate body is awesome because, as you can afford new lenses, you can upgrade. It is so worth it. No more studio shots... I just dress my babies up and do a photo shoot right inside my home.

    And every morning is like Christmas when I wake up and see my baby wrapped up in its snuggly bag on my dresser ...my camera baby that is [​IMG]

    They are excellent for taking shots of kids and animals as they are capable of taking shots back to back.. no "processing" time [​IMG]

    Msbear- those pictures are truly amazing!!

    I have always loved taking pictures and I feel that I have a good eye for a great picture. That's alot of the reason I am wanting a nice camera. Plus, saving the expenses on portraits!!!

    I have been price checking on the various cameras I want to spend, at the most, $800.00. Everyones opinions are awesome and I am looking forward to my purchase and showing it off to all of you!!!
