    I have a sony dsc-p92 right now but it sucks. Pictures almost always come out blurry unless I hold it really still. Anyway I was thinking about speding under $500. Any good cameras out there for that price?

    Canon S2 IS seems to be really hot.

    I had it''s predecessor for like a year, and its size has never been an issue.

    I don't really mind the size. I forgot to mention that I just want to use to for like parties and some family events. Nothing really proffesional if that matters. I'll look into that Canon though, thanks

    The Canon has 12x zoom, and a fantastic movie mode.
    But if you want to do parties, then you should consider something with a wider lens.

    The latest consumer reports magazine has a great article on best buys and the top cameras in each category. I don't agree with some of them but its not their input, its actual facts.

    so as someone who only has experience with p/s but wants to start taking a course in basic photography...should i consider a DSLR?

    i'd say yes, but depending on your class, you may be using film slr's so watch what you spend money on

    If you're just interested in family gatherings and other informal things I wouldn't invest in an SLR. Go with digital too unless you are confident in your abilities to get the exposure correct.

    The Nikon A70 is a nice point and shoot. It has a wide lens and some good features.

    I just got the Casio Z750 and I love it!! :) Great small P&S with plenty of manual control as well.

    Not to mention it records in MPEG4
