what is your budget and are you thinking like a point and shoot camera or a nice slr camera?

My husband has this camera and it takes really good pictures and is VERY durable (even waterproof).  It has been a wonderful purchase for us.

It can be found at Amazon here

I bought the Canon G10, which one of the highest end point and shoots that they make. (It’s a series camera, and they have since come out with the G11, and I think the G12 was just released!)

It’s a larger size camera for a point and shoot, but it allows you to have control over manual features if you have an interest in learning more about photography than using automatic. However, like most cameras, it has different presets for “scenes” like sports, portrait, night, etc. The auto function is awesome and it takes amazing pictures. I’m not the easiest on my stuff, and this has held up for 2+ years, throwing it in my purse or backpack, taking it hiking, mountainbiking, etc…

It’s the high end of your price range, but takes superior photos with a lot of room to grow if that’s what you want.

If you want an SLR we have the Nikon D80 and are very happy with it.

We bought an Olympus PEN (I think the model number is technically E-P1) that was around $500.  We wanted something similar to an slr that coule take rapid fire pictures (which are very helpful taking pictures of kids, animals, nature, etc.) but we didn’t want something as big and complicated as an slr.  We love this camera and it takes noticeably better pictures than my husband’s very good Canon point and shoot.  It is slightly larger than your standard point and shoot, but it’s not as big as an slr.  And since I’m no photography expert, most of the time we can just leave it in automatic mode and the pictures still turn out great, but it does allow us the option to do manual settings and scenes.

If you’re staying under $500 you’re looking more at a point and shoot than a SLR. Honestly I have a sony cybershot as my point-and-shoot and I’ve been very happy with it. I got it for under $200 on Amazon.

I got this at Costco for about 300 dollars a year ago. Works excellent as for professional looking photos as well as video to easily upload. I’ve used similar Canon models and they worked great also. Just gave it away to mom or lost it.

You can’t go wrong with a canon! I have the power shot sd1100 IS and LOVE it! It takes awesome pictures and has a lot of different options for your photos, like colors and then the typical scenes like night, kids and pet, action, ect. It pretty durable too. My 2 yr old hasn’t broken it yet!
