Well......that is sort of like asking what is the BEST small car. And on that subject my mind immediately goes to very expensive cars.


What is BEST for one person is not BEST for another.
We really need more informatin.
The more information the better.

1. Define Small: ultra thin, or just pocket size.
2. Price range: They run from $200 to $600
3. Type: Point-and-shoot, with manual over-ride controls, advanced camera, semi-professional
4. Optical Zoom: none, 3X, 4X, 5X, 6X, 10X, 12X
5. Special features: Wide angle, Bright lens, other
6. Intended use for the camera: Photos of family and vacations, sports, night photography, extensive flash useage, desk top photography, weddings, wildlife, etc

Need a better idea of what you are looking for.

Wonder Cam on Sky Mall 5 in 1 4 mg pixels

I am looking for a good value cam and camera. Found this one in Sky Mall...does anyone have experience with it? Retail is $299. 1 gig memory is about $150.

Just need it to record a few minutes of live video mainly wrestling. And to improve on my digital still shots. Have a very old floppy digital now that is low resolution.

This looks like fair value for the price. Just looking for a review from someone. Found the SVP I Cam on ebay for $153.00 ... sounds like I should steer clear of that one.

Thanks........Sue P.

Stick with the name brand cameras.

Canon, Casio, Fujifilm, Kodak, Knoica Minolta, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, Sony

Most of the no-name cameras come from China and there is no support for the cameras.
Most are misrepresented as to specifications.
Most advertise things like 10 and 12 megapixels when they really have a 3 megapixel sensor.
There is no such thing as a 10 or 12 megapixel small camera.

$150 for a 1 gig memory card is too expensive.

THanks for the advice...I bought a Canon on, and I am sure I will be very happy with it. Glad you steered me that way.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
