Re: Slugger pic now cameras

I have a camera case that is roughly 6" by 4" by 3" with a shoulder strap. I could use rechargeable batteries, but prefer lithium batteries instead. The case has two compartments, one that holds the camera and one that easily holds four spare batteries and a dozen flashcards [if I could afford that many--I have only one spare; the card in the camera will hold more than 100 pictures].

David hit the most important part of digital cameras... the batteries!
Make sure they are rechargeable. I also carry a spare battery when out.

My father used to say- buy the best you can afford. But remember the
most expensive is not all ways the best.

I had sony for years, took great photos but finally wore out. It was
replaced with a Nikon. I like the idea of being able to change the lens
on the Nikon for certain photos. It has the capabilities from manual
settings to fully automatic...but it was also expensive and I don't
think took any better of a picture than my old sony (shame I couldn't
have gotten that one fixed).

Another item that is important to me, memory area. I like ones that the
cards(Nikon) or something (sony used floppies) that are removable.
Nothing like being on a trip and finding the camera full and no where to
download the pictures too. With a removable device, you can have another
spare card and continue on.

Technology is great, but looking at my upcoming 10 day trip... even with
1 1/2 GB of space combined on cards... I have to drag the laptop with so
I have somewhere to download the pictures too....currently looking for a
good case to hold both the camera, extra lens, flash, cds, and laptop
all in one.... Geesh.... told DH the other day, maybe I should just
forget bringing a camera :)


Well, Rich, I am absolutely NO authority about digi cams...only had mine for a year; have been dealing with online images for several years, tho.

http://www.dpreview.com  has been recommended on another list by a
professional photographer as the best place for digi camera
reviews...may be of some help in your search there.

Hi Marge, and all,
Am thinking about getting a digital type camera mainly in order to
with you guys some of my garden stuff, like the label holders, and
some pics of plants. After reading your responses to Kitty's
questions, it
seems as though you are some kind of authority, or at least have a
more than
working knowledge of these things. About the only thing I know for
sure is
that you don't need film, and the pics are easier to put on the
web. Help
me if you have the time please. Rich in Z-5 where it is 72 today
and just
