    So iam shopping around for a digital camera. I was looking at the cannon SD 700. But my friend is selling a Nikon Coolpix 8700 for 250$. I looked online it retails for 1000 and its almost like a SLR. What do you guys think should I pick it up????

    I'd usually say no, but my grandma has this same exact camera and she has won more awards and taken 1st places in more shows than I can even remember. Not a bad camera at all.

    How is it on night shots. I will be mainly taking pics of car meets. Sometimes in Parking Lot Lighting.

    thats about the worst kind of lighting you can have..not many cameras will perform well under that
