RE: [iris-talk ] PHOTO:Digital camera vs Digital Camcorder

I recently purchased a Fuji Finepix S1 Pro and am very happy with it (and
will be even happier after I figure out all the buttons, settings and
menus). It takes very good pictures with almost no involvement on my part.
It came with a 1 gigabyte removable hard drive and at a fairly high
resolution, but not the highest, each picture takes 10 megabytes of space as
a .tif file. To get the picture onto your camera you just pop the hard drive
out and then into a reader or a pcmcia card. With the supplied software your
computer just treats it as another hard drive.  I tell people that it will
make a professional photographer out of me.

Bad news...it's pretty expensive but coming down. At introduction last year
it was $4,000, excluding lenses, and it's now in the $2,500-$3,000 range and
will probably drop more as I've heard that other companies are rolling out
lower cost professional models. I take a lot of pictures each year for my
catalog and web site and this camera will pay for itself in a couple of
years from savings on slide film and scanning. Interesting that where I got
too much purple using slide film,  I seem to get too much aqua/blue using

BTW, notice that I added a subject tag, PHOTO:, to this message as you
should in the future. This helps greatly when searching the archives. Also,
we generally identify ourselves and our location and other interesting facts
about us in a signature block as follows:

Subject: [iris-talk] Digital camera vs Digital Camcorder


I notice just days ago that someone was asking about digital 
camera's.  I was disappointed that there was so little response.  The 
one reply I read was an informed one.

I to am considering purchasing a digital camera for personal use...to 
include Iris and Daylily pictures.  I'd like information from all on 
what camera they use (include model please), how satisfied they are, 
what camera they would purchase if they could today...etc   Value of 
features.  Ease of putting pictures on computer for web sharing.   

Those of you that use Digital camera's and camcorder's know best.

I am also interested in how many use a digital camcorder and the snap 
shot feature for their still pictures?  Type of camcorder, etc...

Please help some newbies out here with your valueable trial and error 

Thank you in advance.
