Shopping, And I Need YOUR Help!

Ok, I am in the search of a new digital camera. The one I have now was given to me, but now I can't get the dial to turn to turn it on. Back in February a waitress spilled water on my diaper bag, which had my camera in it. So, it didn't turn on for days after that. Then, it started working again. Now it is not turning again. I can only think that maybe a bit of sand got in it from the beach. I don't know. It is so frustrating! I don't know anything about digital cameras. The one I have now is Kodak and the USB connector I have is Kodak. I don't even know if that makes a difference! Anyway, please share what you have and what you love about it! I am thinking I will probably stick with Kodak, but I'm not sure. Thanks!

I have a little Canon Sureshot zoom that takes great photos and has some other nice features (can shoot movies, etc.). It comes with its own USB cable and software. Canon has really nice optics, so the pictures are clear and have nice color. The only thing I don't like about it is an orange light that shines in people's faces when I'm taking their picture (so annoying!), but fortunately you can turn that off! It just helps with focusing.

In general, you want to look for something that shoots at least 6 megapixels and has other features you like. Prices can also vary a lot! But, you can hardly go wrong with the good technology on the market today. Have fun shopping!

I suggest Cannn or Kodak. Do not get an HP. Sometimes they have good prices, but they have been really frustrating.
We have a Canon and have been very satisfied, so far. My mom has a Kodak and it is really neat. It is small and easy to fit in a pocket...but there is no zoom. However the picture is so clear. I have trie other Kodaks and they seem to work just as well.
If you can go to the store and test them out. We were frustrated with our last camera because it took so long to process a picture you couldn't take multiple pictures at once.

I just got the Olympus SP-500 UZ. I love it.
Have fun camera shopping!
