I recommend you to take a look at this camera review site first : http://www.steves-digicams.com. I prefer to have a digicams with Super zoom (10x-12x). Fuji FinePix S6000fd which recommended by steve is quite good, and it also has a fantastic video recording too. I was surprised to see the result. I always thoguht digicam and videocam are 2 different camera I need to have, but after seeing the Finepix result, may be I can have both in that digicam.

Hi Taurusgirl, I have two questions that will contribute signficantly towards your decision. What is your price range? What do you want to shoot primarily? If you can afford to spend between 700-800, I would go SLR, particularly with the Canon Digital Rebel XT. Both Canon and Nikon SLR cameras are considered professional grade but also offer a point and shoot mode if you so desire. In other words, you can geek out all you want with manual mode and exposure settings and purchase $2000 lenses for this camera. Or you can switch it to auto mode and be happy with the kit lens that comes with the camera. It's a great camera to grow into as a photographer. Let me know what you are most looking forward to shooting and I can help you out further in the decision :)

If price is no bar then i would suggest Nikon 606 , its a 6 mega pixel , with excelent picture quality, auto red eye correction and many more features, and that too with easy handling, isnt that sound great.

i think that one is a little bit bulky for what i want, but i'll have another look i think i'll make a list and go and see them in the stores get the feel of them i can usually know if its right for me as soon as i have it in my hand thanks for the responce tc

Fuji is a good make - though to be honest, any well-known make is pretty good these days. One thing to look for in the later models is the LCD screen size - many of them now are 2.5 to 3 inches in size, much larger than they used to be and they make composing the picture much clearer and easier. Prices have come down quite a lot lately too, at least here in Toronto - I assume it is the same in the UK. Good luck in your choice - and happy snappin'!

I recently bought a kodak 6 megapixels with a 10x zoom lens. I like it because it takes nice pics and it's easy to use. I shopped around, and found the best sale price online, at Best Buy, I saved $110.00 and they have free shipping.

yes i need to go for a 6 meg pix at the minimum, i've never concidered kodak for a camera but i suppose theres a first for everything thanks for the input tc

I use DSLR, but if I were looking for a point and shoot type of digital camera, I'd look at Canon, Nikon or Fuji. I have an old Fuji 2 MP camera that I still use of quick snapshots. It's been a very good camera. I think the reputations of those three makers would be hard to top.

I am also using Olympus 4.1 mega pixel camera. recently i browsed in the net and olympus stylus 760 with 7.1 megapixel seems to be a good one at a reasonable price

Yes, Fuji produces good and affordable cameras. You should know what are your basic needs before you get one. If you have proceed from a normal camera user to a keen photographer, choose a prosumer camera. It has all basics and some extra features found in DSLR. You can consider Kodak, Canon and Panasonic.
