. From annalauren ~ We have an olympus 2.1 megapixel digital camera that we got about 3 years ago and we still love it! The only thing I don't love about it and have had to get used to is that there is a lag between the time I push the button and it actually taking the picture. Olympus may have dealt with that by now because I know that they have many newer and smaller models out now. And we've never had any kind of problem with our camera. I email pictures all the time (it's so easy) and I can also burn them onto a cd and get them printed. I would like to replace our with a more compact (smaller) camer with a little higher resolution, but can't really justify since we've had no problems with what we have. Good luck!!
. From JulesD ~ We have the Olympus 3.0 megapixal one. We absolutely love it. It's really easy to use and wasn't that expensive either.
. From Lisa Jo ~ We have been very happy with our Canon Powershot S30 (3.2 megapixel). It is extremely easy to use but also has a lot of features if you want to learn about them. For example, you can shoot little 30 second movies with it, including sound. Pretty cool! Ours connects right to the computer for downloading pictures. Also, it uses compact flash cards to store pictures. You can buy extra ones for more storage if you are going on a trip and can't download while you're gone. Generic brands of the CF cards are available for reasonable prices, which is an advantage over some camera models which (I believe) require you to buy their specific product for memory storage at a much-inflated price.
. From paacollins ~ We have a Kodak Easy Share 4MP (4900 I think is the model number). It is very easy to use and takes fantastic pics. Using a good developer makes all the difference too. We love Shutterfly. Digital cameras have really come down this past year. The only thing I really don't like about ours is it only has a 2X Optical zoom. Since the prices have fallen so much, you should be able to get one with a 3X or better optical zoom for a really good price. Don't be fooled by a high digital zoom; the pics are blurry when you use it. Optical zoom is the same as the zoom on a film camera and you get great shots when using it.
. From yoopergoddess ~ We have a Koday Easyshare CX4230. Very easy to use and connect to your computer. There is a slight lag between taking the picture and when it actually takes it but it doesn't bother me. I think it was around $150.00
. From Kimber1773 ~ I have the Cannon A60 and my friend and dad have the A70. We all love our camera and they take excellent printable pictures.
. From Caroline ~ We have a Sony digital video camera. It has flexibility - it can take video and also still pictures for use on our website. We bought it at Sears for $899 - on sale. We're very happy with it. We use it all the time. My family is far away, and we can take video and transfer it to VHS tapes and send it to them. We can also connect it directly to our computer and upload pictures. Overall, we LOVE it! And it's lots of fun, too!
. From Naydene ~ We have the Sony Digital Mavica MVC-FD83. I love it as it also takes very short videos that I can send by email. Also you just put in a regular disk, take your pictures and pop the disk into the computer. I wanted something easy to use, I didn't want to have hook something up to the computer and try and download the pictures from the camera to the computer. My FIL bought it for us; he got it off of an online site. I'm not sure which one now, but he hunted around for the best price. It was $499. Love it love it love it!!!
