    What do you plan on using the camera for? You can spend anywhere from $50 - $10,000 on a digital camera..

    Answer these questions and you will get the best replies.

    1.) What quality are you looking for (1-10)?
    2.) What is your budget?
    3.) What features are you looking for?
    4.) What do you plan on using the camera for?
    5.) Does size matter? Are you looking for a compact easy to carry camera? Or is quality more important?

    I can personally recommend a camera that I have, its 4.1MP, which is decent to whats out on the market now, Its a Canon EasyShare LS443, Has plenty of nice features, extremely easy to use. And will run you about $300 It comes with a nice dock you can just drop it into and hit a button and it will tranfer all your pics over.. It also has an expansion slot up to 512MB SD memory card, I have never had any problems with the thing.. It also records movies, low quality, and are only limited in legnth to what size memory you have in it.. a 128MB card will get you an 8 minute video..

    I have a Sony Cyber-shot 3.2 mega pixels DSC-P32. My bro brought it to summer camp, got sand all over it, like when you shake it you'll hear the sand inside, but it's still working great. Mostly using it to take pictures and short video clips of my daughter. See samples at ruth.fireywind.com.

    I just purchased a very small and very high quality camera from Pentax. The camera is the new Optio s4i. It's 4mp, can record voice, video, and take pictures. Great camera and it only cost $328 with shipping from onecall.com If I'm not mistaken, it's the smalleset 4mp camera out in the market as of this moment.

    Judge for yourself The first one might be slightly blurry since I took the picture from behind a smeared window.

    See for yourself -- ruth.fireywind.com/data/media/13/031802.jpg
    Looks fine IMO. That's only 34% of the original image btw.

    If you are looking for very very easy to use camera get Kodak CX6330. Photos are excellent quality (I printed letter size prints and they look perfect). The best thing about it is how simple it is to use. Last year I got some couple thousand bucks worth JVC camcoder and I hardly used the thing as it is not convinient at all so I can really appreciate ease of use of this camera. It goes for around $200 and if you get it you would really want to buy 32MB memory card (about 60 hi-res photos) or two and rechargable batteries, which brings the price to about $300. This camera is very much worth that money.

    Ive got a Fuji FinePix 4700, that I got brand new from ebay. It is a 4.7 megaPixel and is pretty tiny. It is really hard to take a bad picture with this camera.

    I bought the Canon Digital Rebel last month and couldn't reccomend anything but it. However, it comes with quite a price tag, but has tons of lenses you can get with it.

    Here's a picture I shot with it, the other night.

    RichardV, I see that was taken in Beverly Hills. I'm originally from that area (Tarzana, in the valley). It's all about your car in L.A.
