I've read the sticky, i've started researching abit, but I thought i'd ask you for some recommendations on what kind of digi cam i should look for, before i go out to the local stores.... main use: taking pictures of various car parts and posting them up on websites for the purpose of selling. Ie. I'm parting out a VW Passat...Take a picture of the dnpipe, host it and make a thread to sell it, profit. MP - 2.1 would be suffice (I use my sisters right now), but 3.3 would probably be best. Anything more will probably be overkill Important features: Long or decent battery life is very important to me. I used to borrow a friends 2.1HP and that fucked would kill 4 AA batteries in 10min if you had the LCD screen going Easy to use and upload pics. I don't need anything complicated. Turn it on, aim, shoot, that's it. I hate camea's that make you go thru a bunch of menu screen's just to take a pic. It would be nice if it was fast at doing its job too. I DO NOT need anything re: high zoom, various shutter speed, exposure, light meter, etc. As much as i enjoyed playing with that kind of stuff back in highschool photography, i just don't need it. And i'm hoping not to spend more than $300usd. The cheaper the better....If it gets the job done properly. Thanks, Chris.
