Digital camera with 2" or more LCD & Scan Disk memory

by dgrigst / December 15, 2004 11:08 AM PST

My Fujifilm Finepix 2600 2 megapixel camera keeps freezing up and I think I'm ready to get more pixels. I want to spend under $500, so I'm looking for 4-6 megapixels. It's hard to find a good camera with at least a 2" lcd. I also wanted to stick with Smart Media memory cards since I already have them from my Finepix. Any suggestions?

2" LCD

The 2" LCD will certainly eliminate a lot of cameras.

You are out of luck wanting a camera with Smart Media.
It is a dead horse. I don't know of any camera made in 2004 that uses Smart Media.

2" LCD (or larger) , 4-6 megapixels, under $500
Here is a list of cameras:

Kodak DX7590
Kodak DX7440
Kodak DX7630
Sony T1
Sony W1
Fuji E510
Fuji E500
Fuji F810
Fuji E550
Fuji F440
Fuji F450

If you are a Fujifilm fan, you should look long and hard at the E550.

I second the E550!

My cowoker had a sample of this at the office and what a beautiful camera... and we see lots of cameras at our office!

And yes, you are out of luck with the SmartMedia cards.

Have you heard of other Fujifilm wearing out? I don't want to get another Fuji if they don't hold up.

This month I saw the results of a digital camera survey by a Computer magazine and Fujifilm was just about the middle on reliability.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
