we're thinking about upgrading to a new digital camera after the holidays, probably with tax refund. Right now we have a hewlett packard photosmart 435. It takes pretty good pictures but it eats the batteries up really fast. what kind of digital camera are you using? are you happy with it? Any digital camera recommendations are welcomed

I have a Hewlett Packard Photosmart M417. I'm pretty happy with it but I am still learning. I have two sets of rechargable batteries and a battery charger which helps because I seem to kill the batteries quite easily too.

thanks, ours takes pretty good pictures, so maybe instead of a new camera we need to invest in rechargeable batteries and a charger. Are there better brands of rechargeable batteries like regular batteries or are they all the same?

I have a Aiptek PocketDV880, i only just got it for christmas but it takes excellent quality pictures, it is 8mp. My fiance paid a couple of hundred for it which is still cheap for a digital camera but it is excellent camera!

Well i think Sony is the best and if you really want to buy a good camera go for professional SLR Camera with 12X ZOOM either SONY NIKON OR CANON FOR SLEEK PURPOSES SONY is best

I just got a Fuji FinePix V10. It has 5.1 Megapixels and 3x optical zoom. It has a HUGE LCD screen on the back, its the whole back of the camera. So far it is pretty awesome, the screen is bright and the pictures are very nice. It isn't too fancy, but its a pocket camera, its tiny and easy to use.

Thanks for all the responses. I've rated them all so far. Sounds like everyone has some pretty good cameras.

I bought a Kodak Easy Share for a starter camera and I love it, however I wish it had a bigger screen to view. It does take wonderful pictures though and was so easy for me to use. If I were to buy another one I would probably upgrade my Easy Share and get another.

An olympus C5500 is a good one. That's what we have. We are very happy with ours. The batteries are rechargable. Bought the nickle ion rechargable batteries, and it takes double AA. Good luck whatever you choose.
