    Digital camera?

    Hi all,

    Newbie here

    I'm after a digital camera. Doesn't have to be too special beyond a) a high resolution (12MP minimum) and b) reliable and likely to last a while. I'm looking into this - http://ubuyhardware.com/p~p-18485670...---Silver.aspx - do you guys think it'd be appropriate? Any suggestions of an alternative?

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm not much into point and shoots but it seems ok. A good website to compare cameras is Steves Digicam. If you Google that you should come across it. For that price you could get into a used DSLR. Canon Rebel.

    The camera you are considering is more expensive than comparable cameras because it is water-resistant and shockproof.

    Are those qualities that you need in your next camera?
    My first cell plan was with Cellular One (circa 10/94). It was $49.95/month for 100 LOCAL minutes, voicemail was $4.95/month extra, and it was an additional $.10 to per call to call a landline. No "nights"! - only weekends.
    Now: Nation 850 (total of 4 lines): Unlimited M2M & N/W~$79.97/mo. No landline since 1/05!

    Right now I feel:

    An even better site to compare cameras and see full specs is http://www.dpreview.com . I've been using it for almost as long as I've been a member on Neowin. It's helped me choose my current camera, the Canon 7D.

    I think you don't really need water-resistant and shockproof. So another camera would be cheaper. Good luck
