I have a Sony Cybershot DSC-S85.

It's a 4.1 megapixel and everything can be manually adjusted if required. One great thing about it is it has a lens thread so I can attach lenses and filters.

I bought it Japan 2 years ago for the equivalent of just over $1300. When it was finally released here it sold for $1800.

I have to say though, the digicam is the best gadget I've ever bought.

Whatever you end up getting, if you're going to use it a lot then I suggest you buy a second big memory card (they normally come with a small one - buy 1 or 2 * 128 MB or bigger ones) and battery for it. That way you won't get stooged when you're out and about and run out of juice or space for more photos.

Here's a few great websites that review digicams and offer advice, tech tips and other stuff:

http://www.dpreview.com

http://www.steves-digicams.com

http://www.dcresource.com

If you want to buy filters at some stage, the Hoya ones are said to be quite good. I just bought several from:
http://www.filtershop.com.au/hoyacart/hoya/hoya.htm
Took a week for my package to arrive.

To see what filters are available and what they do, go here:

Happy shopping and happy snapping! :s6:

Re: Digital Camera: What do u have

Ive been told to go Canon by one of my Camera nutt friends. Apparently the Canon G3 for $1400 is probably the best bang for your buck - sensational pictures. Personally Im looking at getting a Canon A80 when they are released in october, which is a "rebuilt" G2 if that makes any sense.

Re: Digital Camera: What do u have

I just bought a Sony DSC-P72, 3.2MP, I got it for $640 on special, and it's pretty good, it takes 640x480 MPEG video's as well. The main reason I bought Sony is because I already have sony stuff, and a lot of it can be interchanged.


I would also recommend getting more memory sticks, I only got a 16mb with mine, which is about 1 min of video, or 18 3.2 MP pictures.

Re: Digital Camera: What do u have

I've got a Sony Cybershot DSC-P10 or something like that. its the new "Memory Stick Pro" pocket camera. does up to 5MP, but also features some nifty stuff like 4.1MP in widescreen, and manual and fully automatic modes as well as video in 160x120 or 640x480 with audio. Memory Stick Pro is the pretty cool, because in a memory card the size of 2 pieces of extra you can get 1GB (RRP is $1400 just for that memory! but can be had supposedly for as low as $850).

The camera cost me about $860, but RRP is $1199. About the only thing wrong is the flash isn't great, but being a small camera that isn't too much of a surprise. Apart from that, its great :)

they are all so dear at the moment still. We got mum an olympus 300 something and that was nearly a grand. But olympus are truly good camera.their lens technology is so much better then sony or casio (stick to the walkmans and calculators for those brands!).
I rate this camera in terms of clubbing shots. If the digital camera can take a good shot at a club with smoke and lasers all over the place then it has done well.

Re: Digital Camera: What do u have

I got a Kodak Easysahre CX4300 which has 3.2 Megapixels and has movies and all other modes for different types of photos now good for almost anything but not a professional jobbie type one.

Also the Camera on my 7250 if that counts.
