    Hey folks,

    I'm looking to purchase a camera, and would GREATLY appreciate any advice some of you might have. Also, any "example pics" would be helpful as well. :)

    I'd like get a camera that I can use to take color pictures of myself and friends, both indoors and outdoors. This camera would allow me the option of transferring my pictures to my computer via USB. I would also like the option of storing the pictures on some type of disk (or whatever), so I can take multiple "rolls" of film.

    Another option that I would like is to "preview" what I'm about to take a picture of.

    Oh yes, and I will be going to New Zealand next year, and would like to take this camera with me to take nice pics of the mountains/landscape.

    Any thoughts? I'm sorry if I gave too many details or not enough. Thanks!!

    Basically any digital camera out today will do what you want but the most important detail we need to know is probably your budget on a camera.

    I don't think I would want to spend any more than $400. :) Thanks!

    Nikon Coolpix 2500 should suit you well

    it's POCKETABLE, and does all you ask for it

    it retails for 300$ so you can afford to buy a nice CompactFlash card that stores lots of photos and also a backup battery



    for slightly less, get the Canon A40

    if you want to pay a bit more..get the Canon S330
