View Full Version : New Camera?

$400 limit, what do you suggest?

I don't need a ton of optical zoom (12x is too much, 6x is probibly a good max), It's mainly REC purposes. Some kind of anti blur would be nice. Also one that takes good pics INSIDE as well as outside. thx

edit: also another tier... $200 buck limit... :dodgy: (parents want new camera... dad doesn't.. even though the HP one blurs and doesn't turn on on flash...)

OH! Digital

Nikon CoolPix's. Or the Canon Powershots.

Don't worry too much about Megapixels. If it's anything more than 5, it's not worth the cash. I would say 5 is as much as you should ever need, unless, of course, you plan on printing huge posters, in which case, you would be looking for a better camera all together.

Ok... well when my dad heard we wanted a new camera and not an HP one this time... he freaked and before I could research like my mom wanted me to, he accused the past camera of being my fault for breaking saying I "took too many pictures" then went out to Sam's club and bought some HP Photosmart R725 camera on his own. I've been accused of breaking the following BAD merchandise that I had no part in breaking:

-150 dollar hp camera that was 5 years old
-my brother's computer which i never use
-the power supply to a cheap LCD TV which I moved 1 time and put back working, then was mysteriously broken after a party they had
-a 1987 CRT tv that had the tube get messed up... I never moved it.
-My 5 year old computer that is according to my dad "slow because of all of my crap", i proceeded to tell him he might be right if it could run my crap

[/rant]needless to say, I'm pretty disappointed in how childish he is.

I feel ya man, my dad is like that too. But I mean, hey, only a few more years, you won't have to deal with him anymore.

I will never understand how you can get mad at someone for breaking a camera for taking too many pictures. Hah. That's like when my dad got pissed off at me because the bathroom floor was a little right after I took a shower. I mean, come on..
