Need Suggestions for a new Digital Camera

Recommended Posts

OH one more thing... the new canon sd cameras have a lot of features that most people dont know. like color selecting and swapping. like in the movie schindlers list where verything was black and white but the red dress. you can select a color and only that specific color will show up. so if you are photographing your flowers they will all be black and white except the red or maybe your bridal party will all be black and white but the color of the BM dresses. also it has time lapse video so you can do some fun stuff with that.

I've read the 1000 is a cheaper model. It does look a little cheaper. The pictures look the same to me, but the case seems a little cheaper. The 700 & 800 lines are nicer.

I like the little eye hole. I bought the SD600 when the SD620 or 630s came out. The only difference was the had a slightly bigger screen, but no eye hole. I think it's nice when it's really bright outside & can be hard to see the LCD screen. My mom is also confused by the screen, so she looks through the eye hole. We take trips with her every year, so it's good to have that for her to be able to take our picture. Anyway, it's not necessary, but I like it.

Getting IS (image stabilizer) is probably good too, if you want to spend a little more. My camera doesn't have it. I wanted to stay under $200 (this was last year).

They also make really cute red leather cases that fit the cameras.

The color selecting/swapping is sooo much fun to play with wink.gif

I've got a Nikon CoolPix that I love, if you want to look at a different brand. I've actually had two of them (the first was a 2.0MP).

 

Has everything I need.

 

Another thing I've found that is super helpful is a memory card that has a direct feed to a USB port (part of the card folds out of the way). LOVE it.

for low light you cant compare when it comes to canons.. i do lots of concert photogrhaphy so constantly low light shots and ive shot with both canon and nikon and they dont compare to the canons. id say they are 25% better image quality in low light then nikons..

FH is getting me one of the Canon PowerShot's as part of my wedding gift. We have REALLY old, crappy cameras now --and really need one for the DW and HM.

 

We have so many friends with the PowerShots and they love them. I also love the compact size.

I have a canon powershot. Its the SD 750 and I absolutely love it. I had an accident with my SD 630 and I liked the cameras so much that I went out and bought another one. The main reason for going with the 750 is the 3 inch screen. They are also light weight and small so you can bring it anywhere.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
