My next camera is gonna be the Nikon 3100. I should have it pretty soon.

My current digital is a crappy HP 315. I dropped 1 too many times and the
battery cover is broken. I hold the batteries in with duct tape now.

I also just borrowed my dad's 1978 Yoshica 35mm he bought that year in
Japan. It takes fabulous pics, and I'll post some here soon. I lucked out
because he has 4 diff lenses already, so I've been having a blast with it.

I was looking around on Canon and freaked out when I saw a digital camera there up to 11.1 mega pixels. It only costs 8 grand!

Check out the 11.1 megapixel camera:

This one is 6.30 megapixels:

The cool thing about both of these cameras is you can attach your own lenses to the camera like normal cameras. Which might enable you to get an extremely nice optical zoom and much clearer photographs.

You can get digital SLR's for as low as $1,500 nowadays.. and near-SLR cameras (such as the nikon 5700) are good alternatives at under 1 grand.

I was just digital camera shopping yesterday, and asked around with some buddies and they suggested to me the Olympus 720 or 740. Both can be had for under $400.

Thanks Jimmie,
I've made a note of that,
something within my price range.

I guess I'll want to sell my old camera afterward to recoupe some of the money spend.


I've added the Olympus to my list to look into.
need to be able to goto the stores and do the touch and feel thing,
they all look good on the internet with pictures and all but holding
it your hands before making up ones mind is really what needs to happen.

thanks again for the advice.

the camera I plan to buy next week is the Nikon 3100. Take a look at
GIA's work, and you'll see the sort of images it can take. Phenominal,
and this is the updated model of his camera.

$350 US

Here's a great site and resource for you to research:

Honestly, haven't figured that out just yet.

I've been scanning through the sites and flyers
but I think it all comes don to actually going to the stores and actually
having the product in your hands.

mostly I'm just at this point figuring what I should not be buying
and what I should be getting as a mininal.

I want to know a bit more about the 3x zoom,
is it really enough or should one spend the extra
and go more on the zoom.

trouble is I also want to stay somewhere within the 400-500$ range.

I'll keep you posted when I figure out which one I might just go with.

the Nikon 3100 does look nice ...
but something tells me I want a black houseing with a really good zoom.

when I do make up my mind,
still have to run it through the company that I work for.
30% off

we'll have to see ...

30% off, but it's gonna be at the canadian rate! so you're gonna pay
more even after the discount!

what kind of deal is that?! no help from you steen, at least not in this
case.... hehe ;)

yeah the drawbacks of exchanging a good 'Ol USA dollar to a lousy Canadian dollar.

the only good thing about exchange rate sitting here in Canada
is when it says 0.06 cents a click it works out to be 0.0858 cents
at a current rate of 1.43

in other works one AP click is worth 8 1/2 cents to me.

Bet ya wished you live in the GREAT white nord now huh ?

then again, when I have to pay my hosting bill,
it looks like a good price until I see the Canadian dollars come off my CC

DOH !!!

heheh, I got a Pentax EL-100

It is pretty good, I guess... a whopping 1.3 MP!!!

and I take lots of pictures with it...

Mostly all of the pictures on my site are taken with it... Otherwise I take pictures with ..... arcaeic film... the KODAK kind, then I get them digitized when I develop them.

But anyway I see no reason to upgrade for my kind of work, but some of you Graphics guys (referring to the Digital Art section of this Forum) I can see why you would want stuff like this.

Olympus C-3000Z

Very nice camera, once you buy the filter/lense adapter.

I also have a bugeye lense, and a bunch of cool filter, including an IR one. Its a nice camera overall, but a little low on the zoom (3x)

3.3 Megapixels.

I've been looking at this PENTAX OptioS - Model No. 18263

Image

http://www.pentaxcanada.com/products/digital/optios.php


smaller than an average credit or business card, while the camera’s overall
size is slightly smaller than a deck of playing cards.

3.3 x 2.0 x 0.8 inches

Despite its compact dimensions, the high-performance 3X optical zoom lens
(equivalent to a 35-105mm lens in 35mm format) is capable of producing images
of a pleasingly high quality. The zooming capacity of the lenses is augmented
with 4X digital zooming, which offers smooth operation and realizes
a combined zooming power of 12X zoom.


I'm told it's top of the line ...

they want 599,- for it here in Canada,
I can get it discounted at 499,- which includes the charger and software.


Anyone that knows cameras, could you give me your opinion on this model ?

many thanks, in advance !
