    For all you photography gurus:

    I want to buy a digital camera for my gf for xmas, and since I missed out on the black friday deals I'm looking for something with about the following specs:

    Type: Compact or Ultra-compact
    Res: 5 or 6 MP
    Memory: SD card (already have one to go with it)
    Price: $150-$180, shipped

    I don't want to totally sacrifice picture quality for slim design (e.g. Vivitar).

    Any suggestions?

    My 2 pennies...


    DONT.

    They dont take care of them, they throw them in their purses, they drop them, they don't use them, they get makeup in the viewfinder, they scratch the shit out of them...

    just dont even waste your money. Get her a day at the spa.

  6. GOD DAM you are so motha fucken right!!

    My girl throws her camera in her purse with her keys and her LCD is all scratched up and shit!!! But I think every girl must have a slim camera, if you're a girl you're not "cool" unless you have a slim camera and a camera phone so you can take pics of yourself for myspace!! Also a million purses and shoes. :o
