It depends on what you need it for.
Use determines the camera.
I sell digital cameras at Best Buy.

anything over 2 megapixel is enough for most people. If you need a really high res photo, use film. Other than that, use Sony if you already have sony (memory sticks) and stay away from anything that saves to a floppy.

Olympus makes excellent digital cameras, and they are easy to use.

I have an Olympus D400 zoom, with the Smart media memory card.


Note:

The higher the pixel count, the higher the resolution (clarity, sharpness) of the image will be. 3 megapixels is out now, and I am sure it will get better.


You may also want to decide between a fixed lense, and a zoom.

Again, as mentioned in earlier posts, it depends on what kind of pictures you take.

Stills, action, sports, nature, close-ups, portraits, etc.etc....

I must agree with Olympus. I have a D460 Zoom which is much better than my old Sony.

Kodak cameras rule. I got one. The 4330 is an awesome piece. Consumer reports rates them very high. Keep in mind that you need to buy the EasyShare dock to be able to charge a battery. It also makes loading pics to you computer cake.

Ok, my cousin just bought the Kodak DX 4900 and wants to buy a larger capacity Compact Flash card. What is the deal with the speed of these things and are they all compatible? I see cards with 4X designations and 24X designations. Any input is appreciated.
