I am wanting to buy a digital camera and my buget is VERY low. I don't need anything too fancy, just something that is small enough to take anywhere and will capture decent pictures. Does anyone have any suggestions? I get so lost while shopping :roll: , a little help would be great! Thanks in advance! :D

I would imagine a Kodak would be pretty cheap w/ good quality. Your best bet is to drop by cnet.com and check out cameras there that fit your budget. Then come back here with some that you like and we will help you widdle down the list.

I can give you a few REALLY good suggestions if you can narrow down
your budget for me. $300? $200?

I'm thinking more around $200. I'd like to get it before the end of the summer and I have very few ways of making money.

ok. well, for $200 you can get a really nice 2+mp camera. Pretty much
any brand at that range are about the same in quality and features.

I would recommend the newest HP for that price range. The Kodak
suggestions is a good one as well. I would just more or less look for a
style of camera that you would prefer.

Hey! It's me the brother. I am thinking about a good camera, but... I am also thinking about an average computer. I just need to figure out which I want more. Also, my budget is a bit higher than $200, probably gonna be around $400.

Not too many computers out there you can buy for 400, but there may be one or two you could build for that much.

That's a cool camera, do you have it? I need to shop around some. I have a rich friend who told me the other day, "I'm going to Best Buy to buy a digital camera." Me,"What kind?" Him,"I don't know, why?" This kinda drove me crazy, because he's a rich bastard and can afford to take a chance on a random camera.

Don't buy from stores, shop online, its a much better deal. Check out cnet.com for prices.

The only drawback to buying something online, is if you need to return the item, its not as easy usually, and will cost you more shipping and handling. However, shopping online will usually give you much better deals.

That IS a good point, I have been fortunate enough to never have to return anything I buy. And I have bought alot, including parts for my computer, speakers, video camera, digital camera, etc. etc. etc.

Plus if you don't buy from a normal store online, you may be purchasing a greymarket item.(it's grey dammit!)

Yes i do have that coolpix camera, I actually just got it the other day. The only drawback to it is that it uses 4 AA batteries and they drain real quick when uploading the pictures to your computer. You can overcome this problem if you have a laptop, They have a card thing that you can put in your laptop, so when you want to upload pictures to your laptop, you just take the memory card out of it and stick it in your laptop.

They have memory card ports for any card and almost any computer. You just have to buy one. Like Sony cameras come with a USB drive for the Memory Stick that they use.
