Help Me!

I need to buy a new camera, the old one is ready to be retired, the pictures are no longer sharp looking. The old one is a Canon PowerShot, plus I have a Nikon Coolpix L110, which I do not like...the pictures are too grainy, no matter what setting it is on. What is a good camera that is uncomplicated, takes good crisp pictures, not real expensive...and most of all for someone that is a real beginner when it comes to photography?

What kind of camera do you have? Why would you recommend it?

Thanks for your input!

Marigene, My favorite camera is the Sony DSC-H50 9.1 megapixels, 15x optical zoom with a tilt (pivotal) LCD screen. Love the macro setting. I have a more expensive Canon which I like also, but for a great camera this has a nice price of around 300, less on some sites.
Good Luck

Marigene, I like the Sony Cyber-shot. The one I use now is a Sony Cyber-shot DSC HX100V. It takes crisp, clear pictures and has a great zoom. And it's somewhat easy to use. It had good reviews.

I am in the same boat! I will certainly be checking back to see what you come up with!

My last post has pictures from two different cameras and they look so different.

I think that live writer made them grainy. Also I think if you copy the picture to too many times it gets fuzzy.

What do you think?

I have a big ole Canon that I use for most of my shots. However I do have a Canon Powershot SD1300 digital ELPH that is small and I take on some trips where it is not practical to use my big camera. It takes some pretty darn good shots. I used it when Ash and I went to the beach in Cali and those pics came out great. I really do love Canon but others use different cameras and are happy with them also. I did lots of research before buying my little PowerShot and I'm very happy with it. hugs, Linda

I'll be interested to see what people say. I'm using an older digital camera that I'm comfortable with. It saves onto floppy disks, and uses a battery that can be recharged and it has lasted forever. I bought a second one so I could swap out the battery and still take pics while the other was charging. The resolution is not very high though and I have trouble with taking pics too dark/light. I comfort myself with the knowledge that this will make them less susceptable to someone pirating pics on the internet. But I do have another camera.... somewhere.... that is a Nikon Coolpix 4600. I haven't used it in a long time. I bought one of those rechargeable battery packs for it and a recharger because I got sick and tired of buying batteries. The resolution is higher. I'm kind of "saving" it for when my Sony Mavica quits working, the only thing is, it's just keepin' on keepin' on....

I agree with Folet, Marigene. I have a Sony DSC-H9 and I love it, used it so much but the cover where the battery and memory stick are broke. I will send it out for repair. I bought a new one, Sony NEX C-3 with 16.1 MP and I am still trying to learn it. So far, I like it. Good luck!...Christine

I have a Kodak Easy Share C513 (I'm sure it's got a current incarnation....I received it 4-5 years ago). It's relatively easy to use and I love it!!

Years ago, I was really 35mm SLRs and lots of interchangeable lenses and then later digital SLRS with assorted lenses. In the past few years, I have downsized considerably and now use a Canon PowerShot SX130; also have a Canon Elph for those shots on the go.

I use the Canon Powershot as a second camera and think it does a pretty good job.

I have a Canon Rebel which I love, but I had 2 Canon PowerShots, one of which I still use when I want something to stow and go and it really takes very nice shots, particularly if you put it on a tripod if your light isn't optimal.

Good luck with the hunt,
Judy
