Re: What camera to buy?

What types of pictures do you plan to shoot? (scenery, floral [close-ups], kids playing sports like baseball, soccer, etc.)

Do you plan on making enlargements from some of them "larger than" 8"x10"?

Am going through that process now and after reviewing Steve's site as well as others narrowed it down to the Canon Power Shot 3 IS and the Fuji FinePix s6000 fd. A little more than the $250 you wanted to spend but not significantly more. I'm sure that there are another 100 cameras out there that would serve my purpose but I am just about definite on the Fuji.

I've got the Fuji S5600 and I can't fault it. That retails for around £120-£150 which I think works out at around $250 or less.

Bit of a read for you on it here http://www.letsgodigital.org/en/news...tory_3847.html
