digital camera

Question Posted Friday December 1 2006, 12:52 am

I bought my first digital camera last January (Polaroid iZone 300 with 3.2 megapixels). In my opinion, it's a horrible camera. The pictures don't come out very clear and the battery dies extremely fast no matter how long I charge it for. Plus, it can record videos, but it doesn't record sound. What good is that?

So basically what I'm trying to say is that I'm not very good at picking out a digital camera and I need someone's help. I'm getting one for xmas and I get to pick it out.

My "requirements": no more than $250, able to record videos with sound.

i'm not sure about any good cameras, but i'll lend you some advice about cameras. i have a cannon and its 3.2 megapixels, pictures are clear, videos are good, except theres no sound either. i didnt find this out until 3 months after i got my camera. yes, cannons are good, but you need to make sure it has sound. ask the people in the store about the sound, they dont always tell you unless you ask.
thanks in advance

Definately go for a Sony Cybershot or a Canon. They are great cameras for low prices. Try to get at least 4.0 megapixels for good quality pictures.

Btw, the rechargable batteries for a Sony Cybershot (which cost extra) last for hours and hours and don't take too long to recharge. I take about 400-500 pictures with flash everytime I'm out and the battery lasts the entire time.

Good luck :)

You could also try going to your local camera store, drugstore or other place that sells camera to find the one for you. The sales people tend to be helpful but make sure if you see one you like that you look it up on the internet first. Just google the name.

Wow you can live with that kind of camera? I'm glad you're getting on for chrismtas..cuz you should consider looking for a Canon. Those are getting cheaper and the quality is really great even with a price lower than 250. The new ones that are out are 299, and I am soo jealous of my friend who has it. It is user friendly, easy to fit anywhere, not too big nor small, and it's fast at taking pictures, AND the picture turns out looking great.

:) Hope that helped!
