    Hello,
    I would like recommendation on general use digital camera. I will be using it to take pictures of things outside, at parties and such.

    I already have a 1GB SD memory card and I would prefer an SD based camera, but if there is a great camera that wouldn't work with SD, I would consider it as long as the whole thing (camera, battery+charger, carrying case + memory card) is less than $300

    Go go go

    thx

    can't ... no one can ... we don't take pic in the same mannor you do ... our hands don't fit a camera the way yours do.

    All that we can say is try to stick with the big 3. You can't really go wrong with Nikon (my fav :big grin:), Canon, or Sony (some my disagree :dunno: )

    Oh and get your but to stores ... play with them, hold them, ask questions about them. Or have a look at http://www.dpreview.com

    whereas I would disagree. I think the A95 is too bulky and slow. For DSLR's I prefer Nikon. For P&S's I prefer Sony. :dunno:

    I would agree with Cobber though. Get to a store and play with them.

    My roomate has a 5mp small sony...I hate it. Really blurry pictures without the flash. My A95 destroyed it in every category except speed ...I have since upgraded to a D70 so speed is no longer a problem.
