    I am looking to buy a digital camera medium sized in the $350 ballpark. The main uses of this camera would be for auto racing, and just pleasure. Any help would be appreciated.

    auto racing and point and shoot ... i dunno.

    My reccomendation would be canon s70, can be had for 350-390$ and is quality camera.

    From my research Cannon seems to have the most recommendations, and best product reviews. I think I will get one, but just need to figure out what model now.

    Since your needs are not in the target of say ... neighborhood rhinos, I'd say get the Canon Digital Rebel -- It's the official camera of the NFL :eek3:

    I have heard that optical zoom is important, but also know so are megapixels. However, I notice that a camera with a high optical zoom has lower amount of megapixels and vice versa. For the auto racing I think both would be important, but am curious as to a good baseline to go off of for both. I was thinkinging maybe 3x optical zoom 5 megs?

    What do you plan on doing with the pictures after you take them? printing? (if so what size)

    If you are just viewing on the computer or printing 4x6's then megapixels are not a huge concern...A95 = 3x optical + 5mp

    Here is a picture I just took with my A95..

    I appreciate all of the help. The lowest price I have found for the A95 with shipping included was from Buydig.com, and they seem to have positive feedback from customers.
