I posted this in WTTC but no one has gotten round to replying yet... Girlies please can you have a little input for me?

-------------

Obviously I'm no photgraphy expert and so my camera needs differ from those of you who are... I got 60 of birthday money which I decided to put towards a good camera for us especially with babba on the way. My digicam is ok but rubbish with close up pics.

So would anyone (or all of you ) mind checking out this camera and tell me what you think? Being 9MP I thought it was a great price? Mine is 3MP.

Second option is this one, but it is 7MP for same price - a colleague at work has this one and she loves it.

Would love your thoughts

Are you looking specifically for a Kodak? I have to admit I am NOT a fan of their cameras, and they usually get poor reviews. Check out some Panasonic Lumix and some Canon Powershoots.

I agree with Angela, the last camera i got was a kodak and i hated it. The pictures it took were horrible and grainy looking no matter what setting it was on. Needless to say I sold it on ebay a week later. Now I have a sony and love it, and before that i had a polaroid which was really cheap but an awesome camera for the price!

I am most certainly not a camera expert, but I have a Kodak 10 MP camera and I really like it. It takes great pics (for what I use it for) and is easy to use. With that being said, my last camera was a Kodak that started taking really grainy, not-focused pictures about 6 months after I bought it and I had barely used it at that point. Very luckily- thanks to DH- I bought mine at PC world and shelled out at extra 15 for their in-store 3 year guarantee. That was the best 15 I have ever spent- they took it back with no problems at all. They didn't have the same camera in so they gave me a better, more expensive one that is also a Kodak at no charge. I hope this one holds out longer. BTW, this same thing with blurry pictures happened with an expensive Nikon I bought a few years ago.

My DH is a pretty good photographer, so I asked him what he thought. He actually has a forum he goes to where they do reviews on cameras and other new technology. He said the Kodaks are good, but he would really recommend a Canon with IS(image stabilization). He has the Rebel XTi and also a Canon S720 IS, and he made me take a pic with both so I could see the difference between one with IS and without, since I'm definitely no photographer, and it definitely makes a difference. He did say that to get one with IS you'll have to pay a little more than what you have, but not much. He also said that just because a camera has more MP, doesn't necessarily mean it's better. He said the camera that was reviewed as the best budget camera is the Canon PowerShot A590 IS. Here is a link to it...Canon PowerShot A590 IS And here is the link to a review on it...review on Canon PowerShot A590 IS

I agree, I am not a fan of Kodaks... Canons and Samsungs have both been good to me. maybe check out these ones:

this is close to what i have, and I really love mine - Samsung

this is the one my mom uses and it too is pretty decent - Canon Powershot

I love the IS facility as I have shaky hands1 however, I can't really afford to go above the 60 mark.

I'm going to keep looking and keep an eye out for Xmas sales. Keep the suggestions coming though - much appreciated!

I don't know much about Kodak cameras but I'm suggesting that maybe your friend with the Kodak can show you the pics that she takes with hers and then if you will have some idea of what the Kodak pics will look like.

Some other options in the $60 price range from Argos (these all have pretty good reviews according to the site):
Canon Powershot A560 7MP

Nikon Coolpix L16 7MP

Hitachi HDC-886E 8MP

I had a Kodak Easy Share for a while and liked it. The links that you posted say that their website is closed, so I can't see what cameras you are looking at I'll check back later. I too have heard good things about the Canon, it might be worth it to wait a month or two and save up a little bit more money. I about s*** myself after I spent $700 on my camera and found out the NEXT DAY that we were pregnant, but I'm sooo glad that I got a nice camera, it's worth it! So yeah, make sure that you get the one that you really want!

Call me utter NUTS!!! But I just scored the samsung P800 for 50 on ebay... RRP is 89.99 - sale price in PC World is approx 70. blink.gif

I'm nuts am't I? I really wanted the Nikon Coolpix S210 but it was 100 , I couldn't resist a bargain and it's got fab spec!

An item of mine sold today for 22 and had instant payment so the cam cost me 28!

Awesome buy! I've never had a Samsung camera, but my last laptop was a Samsung and I loved it do death. Unfortunately, this was the one stolen from my flat last year. Can't wait to see some new pics from it!
