    i really know nothing about them.. i just know you want one with megapixels.

    i've been looking around for pricing... i don't want to spend much more than $100 bucks. I'll be using it to take pics of ppl at parties and post awsome party threads... and to take pics at the METALLICA show next week :big grin: :big grin: :big grin:

    is spending 100 bucks on a cam worth it? will i get crappy pix? i saw a 2.0 megapixel for 100 with 4x digital zoom.

    zoom is nice... expecially for concerts :big grin: :big grin:

    Digital zoom = not nice for anything. Basically, it is the same as taking a non-zoom shot and 'zooming' on the computer with an editing program. 2mp is pretty much only good for posting on web, it will be worthless for any prints whatsoever. Also, be certain to get a flash, I had a cheap non flash camera once, and it was only good for bright sunny outdoor pics.
