    Looking to pick up a half decent camera, but I'm on a bit of a budget. Any suggestions?

    thanks

    i figured it would be, but every review I read has a list of complaints about it and many say that it is quickly falling behind the competition and that it is priced high for what it is now.

    if you can find a g6, g7 or g9 grab one

    the olympus sp-550 has been a little better that I expected.

    the canon s5is is always good

    image stablization was a key feature. i wanted a good camera that wasnt going to be outdated the day after i bought it. now that i have it, i am trying to learn how to use all of the features. im not a photographer by any means, but i can appreciate a good picture. i wanted to be able to capture several different kinds of shots, ranging from my brother racing, to snap shots out at the bar, to nice family photos, and good stills of cars. so far, it has worked better than i expected it too. finally, the price was right where i was looking, so i jumped on it.
