Good digital camera?

37 posts in this topic

I have a kodak right now and have been having problems with it. I'm thinking about getting a new one. What is a reasonably priced, good and simple digital camera that is easy to upload pictures with and dependable?

Thanks in advance!

Canon Powershot models.. I love mine.. Easy to use but has great advanced features too. Mine is a SD1000 7.1MP that is about 2 years old. Similar newer models out there right now.

With my Nikon L20 all I have to do to get a pic ready to post here is Push the button to view the pic I want to post, Press menu, scroll down to small pic. Press the arrow right, pick the size I want (640X480), press OK. select yes and I'm done. Then it is just a matter of putting the card in the SD reader slot.

I haven't used a Cannon but I don't see how posting can get easier (well pics with my phone are easier).

I own 2 P&S cameras, a Canon PowerShot and a new Panasonic TS-1.

The Canon takes nice pictures and is easy to use, I like it.

The Panasonic is somewhat spendy for a P&S, but it's rugged and waterproof. It also takes amazing HD video (Blu-Ray quality), the first P&S camera on the market to use the AVCHD format. I think it would be hard to find a better P&S to take snaps out in the boat or blind than this one...

The Canon Powershot is a hard camera to beat. I recently seen one of the new Panasonics and it was a great camera, excellent quality pics and an amazing zoom for the money.

I just got the Olympus Stylus 850. So far I very happy with it. It is very durable, totally waterproof and can even be submerged - but I have not tried that yet.

I just purchased a Nikon coolpix S560 last week. I did a fair amount of research, reading reviews, etc. It has 10 megapixals, 5X zoom, and a rechargeable lithium battery. However the best part may be the ease of use. They are on sale now for $169.99. So far I'm happy with the decision.

I've had a Sony cyber-shot for a couple of years and am very happy with it. Real easy to use and good photos.

New PC World magazine has a point & shoot feature this month.

Results are Nikon Coolpix L20 & Powershot SD1100 are both very good. The Nikon is a great value for the money.

I have an Olympus stylus 850 SW and a 750 and love them. Tons of features and easy to use. On-line I have seen the 850's for around 150$.

The underwater is neat, a little scary the first time though...

Plus it will take nice video. Notice the eagle on the downed tree, he takes flight a few seconds in...

I have an olympus that is shock proof and waterproof. Great pictures even underwater. I bought this because of being outdoors in the elements. And if I drop it I won't have to worry about damaging it much.

Definately the Olympus. Shockproof, waterproof, and dustproof. I have submerged it in water, dropped it countless times, and it still is ticking. Takes great pictures too.

i also have the Olympus. i got the floating wrist strap with it so if i do drop it in the drink it will float. having a waterproof and shock proof camera is good but it does ya no good if its on the bottom of the lake.

I use a fuji finepix something or other, nice and compact but takes great pics, very functional as a point-and-shoot camera.

Though now that I think about it, I kind of wish I had something that could shoot underwater.

iceman16 - those pictures were taken while releasing fish - one hand on the tail and one hand to try and line-up and take the picture. Takes some practice...

Heres a nice lake run brown, notice my boot in the backround...

    • Well said Del! There weren't issues till he decided to stick his nose in it. The mod for that thread did just fine.
    • I meant harmless in the sense they don't kill fish. With that being said, I'm sure the host fish would prefer that it not have a lamprey attached to it, but at the end of the day, the fish will live...literally. Lampreys are very common in the upper St. Croix River system. I see them attached to redhorse all the time, which makes sense, as redhorse are by far the most abundant fish in the system. If the lampreys haven't "crashed" that system after several thousand years of coexistence, I'm liking gamefishes' chances for the next several thousand years also 
    • John Podesta May Have Violated Federal Law By Not Disclosing 75,000 Stock Shares 3/26/2017 Daily Caller   John Podesta, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s 2016 national campaign chairman, may have violated federal law by failing to disclose the receipt of 75,000 shares of stock from a Kremlin-financed company when he joined the Obama White House in 2014, according to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group. Joule Unlimited Technologies — financed in part by a Russian firm —  originally awarded Podesta 100,000 shares of stock options when in 2010 he joined that board along with its Dutch-based entities: Joule Global Holdings, BV and the Stichting Joule Global Foundation. When Podesta announced his departure from the Joule board in January 2014 to become President Obama’s special counsellor, the company officially issued him 75,000 common shares of stock. The Schedule B section of the federal government’s form 278 which — requires financial disclosures for government officials — required Podesta to “report any purchase, sale or exchange by you, your spouse, or dependent children…of any property, stocks, bonds, commodity futures and other securities when the amount of the transaction exceeded $1,000.”   Podesta’s form 278 Schedule B is blank regarding his receipt of any stock from any company. Liberals and conservatives alike tell TheDCNF Podesta should have disclosed the stock. “Well Podesta should certainly have been more upfront in filling this out.  Clearly, it should have been fully disclosed,” said Craig Holman, a lobbyist for the liberal group Public Citizen which was founded by Ralph Nader.  “That’s the point of the personal financial disclosure forms, especially for anyone entering the White House,” he told TheDCNF in an interview. “If the transfer of stock took place, it had to be disclosed,” added former U.S. Attorney Joseph DiGenova in an interview. “If he didn’t, clearly it’s a violation.”   OH, MY...   And there is soo much more to this story...   Absolute criminals...   Link
    • Schumer goes off on Trump supporter at NYC restaurant, witness says Published March 27, 2017 New York Post   Witness: Schumer went off on Trump supporter at restaurant Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., caused a scene at a Manhattan restaurant when he began yelling at a wealthy and well-connected Donald Trump supporter that the POTUS is “a liar.” Schumer, the top Senate Democrat, lost his cool on Sunday night at Upper East Side restaurant Sette Mezzo, according to witnesses. He was dining with friends when he encountered Joseph A. Califano Jr. — the former U.S. secretary of health, education and welfare under President Jimmy Carter and domestic policy adviser to President Lyndon B. Johnson — and his wife, Hilary, who were having a quiet dinner. Onlookers said Schumer was incensed that Hilary — the daughter of William S. Paley, the founder and chairman of CBS — had voted for Trump, even though her husband, Joseph, is a well-known Democrat. One witness said of the restaurant rant, “They are a highly respected couple, and Schumer made a scene, yelling, ‘She voted for Trump!’ The Califanos left the restaurant, but Schumer followed them outside.” On the sidewalk, Schumer carried on with his fantastical filibuster: “ ‘How could you vote for Trump? He’s a liar!’ He kept repeating, ‘He’s a liar!’ ” Hilary confirmed the confrontation, telling Page Six, “Sen. Schumer was really rude . . . He’s our senator, and I don’t really like him. Yes, I voted for Trump. Schumer joined us outside and he told me Trump was a liar. I should have told him that Hillary Clinton was a liar, but I was so surprised I didn’t say anything.”   Sheezus....   What an unhinged lunatic a-hole....   Could you imagine if this had been paul ryan acting in this way ??   I think a knee to the groin was in order..
