    Is a 512 meg SD card worth $35 ... just checked it out .... yes it is. That surprised me - I'd have thought they'd be cheaper.

    So anyway..... nice price holdenmg

    Nice little camera... Thanks holden!

    My first digital camera was a Fuji 2mp, and I think it was the best point and click I ever had. I still have the piccies from University days, and they are excellent reminders of the fun I used to have before I became a fuddy-duddy.

    Thats really cheap for a 9MP. Thanks HoldenMG!!
  • admin2007/07/31 21:38:05
    that would mean you should be able to get about 110-120 full size pictures on the 512mb SD.

    9mp is going to be a pretty stunning resolution.

    I'm assuming that it must write to the internal 12meg flash before committing to the card. Otherwise - why have it really.

    Anyone interested in buying a camera might like to check out the US site, 'dpreview'. I have found it invaluable. This model isn't rated very highly, but it's a good price (low end) camera pretty good for outdoor shots (poor for indoors).

    Sorry! Photography is one of my things...

    :) don't be being sorry - critical analysis of the value of deals and the worth of the subject matter is encouraged.

    whats not good about the model ??
  • ScarletRubies2007/08/01 09:41:38
    It only has very basic features and no room for personalising your settings - which of course may not be an issue for people. You also can't get decent pictures in low light conditions, even with flash - so, no decent indoor shots, no decent shots from before sunset, and no decent evening/nights shots.

    Imagine being at an indoor wedding, or your child's birth, or watching your kid in a music recital/karate demo, whatever.... lots of events in our lives that we want to record happen indoors.

    I'm not the best photographer, but I want to get better, and being "disabled" by a very basic camera is sad. It doesn't cost too much more to do better. The Lumix cameras mentioned for the Panasonic free flight deal are a better option - although they still have detractors as well!

    Seriously, if anyone is looking at getting a digi camera, I really do recommend that site. You get a lot more varied and qualified opinions than mine!

    I completely agree that if a camera is not 'good value', even if it is cheap, if you can't take basic shots - that is a good indoor piccie and a good outdoor piccie.
    And thanks again for the extra info ScarletRubies :)
