One camera does stick out.
The Canon A400.
Sharp Lens - good clear photos.
Here is a review:
I'm hoping someone can help me out... I'm looking to finally buy a digital camera. I don't know a lot about photography and only really need to be able to take decent every-day/vacation pictures. I'll likely only be making 4x6 prints, and likely will only want to do very minor editing to the pictures. The smaller the camera the better, but it's not a big concern. I'm currently in University (read: low cash flow and probably shouldn't be carrying around anything too valuable anyway) so cost is definitely my main priority. I don't need a camera that will last 'forever' (will most likely update in 3 or 4 years anyway) but would like to find the best quality of the similarly priced entry-level models.
I really know nothing about the different cameras though. So far, the models that I keep seeing in the really-low-budget range are:
Kodak Easyshare CX7300/CX7330/CX7430/C300
HP Photosmart M407/M307/435
Do any of these (or others) stick out as better than the rest? I'm willing to spend a little bit more for a better camera than these if it would really make a difference for my needs...
Any advice would be greatly appreciated... thanks in advance if anyone can help!
