Looking to pick the boy up something for x-mas in the line of a decent camera for outdoor photos.

1. 35 mm or digital?

2. if digital, how many pixels?

3. user friendly and durable.

4. Lieca cameras still of value like they were before digital?

Thanks

Thanks dogs! Are you looking for a point and shoot or DSLR? Budget? My guess is you are looking for a nice point and shoot. Here are a few recent posts on PS cameras.

Leica has introduced a digital camera in the rangefinder style. If you do a little research you should be able to find out if the old lenses will work with the new bodies.

Well I am sort of a canon guy myself, A good friend of mine just bought the entry level Canon XS SLR camera. about 600. That would leave you 400 to buy a decent lense to add on. Tamaron makes a decent 28-300 zoom for around 400-500 bucks. Try looking for someting like that. Also I have noticed you can pick up a Nikon D40??? for like 600-700 also. Both would be nice entrly level DSLR. One place many of us look for such items is a online shop called Canoga Camera. Google them and you find some good info.

    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
    • Worst buy I ever bought. I sold it the next week. I like 13 products but not this line of products
    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.
