Thumbs up Your 100% right

PICK

I completely agree..For the 'home user', the 1.6 mp or, anything in that range will do a terrific job~
I have no problem with progress, nor shooting for the "moon" but, at what price? lol

Our digital camera is a FinePix 201. We use this quite a bit. Itís a 2.o mega pixel and I feel it delivers more than what is adequately needed for a nice picture. I always try and use the highest quality setting on the camera and I find that the pictures look better that way.

Someone correct me here if Iím wrong but what Iím thinking isÖÖ..when using a digital picture for a computer, the picture wonít be any better than whatever the resolution is, say on your monitor. I really donít know exactly what the numbers are but I think its way less than what most digital cameras will deliver. In simple terminology, you donít need a very good camera to meet the standard of what your computer will see and it will be a good looking picture.

Back to using a camera, I prefer to use a 35mm then scan it into the computer. After this you can use an editing program to format it to a JPG or Gif file or whatever is needed.

I believe we're getting more away from the "develop film process"~

The good news is: I'm seeing newer products coming out that, give you the options of a 35mm, SLR approach to the whole process..
That's great~!

yes, however....

yes you are correct about the monitor for viewing.

the higher resolution (# of pixels) the more you can edit the pic.

here is an example...

zoom

now the same zoomed into the practical limits. mind you now my camera was set on medium res. (a little less than 800 kb per shot)

the more pixels when the pic is shot, the more you can play with it later...

Not a problem..I have several sizes, 32 and 64 mg. Capable of holding 100's (close to 900 pictures on one) of pictures until I download to either the puter or my printer. Afterwards, you just reuse them for more picture taking sessions.
You just use the normal file management process to transfer the pictures off the memory stick.

Seems that for me, using a digital camera allows me to just shoot more pictures. I don't worry about every precious frame of film as I did with my traditional cameras. It has taught me to take chances. Perhaps only one or two shots will be 'good' pictures out of twenty, but my results are better over all.

gotta jump in here

I just love my sony Cyber shot 3.3 with thw zeiss lens. We have used it for several years with great results.

We did have to have it repaired once but it wasn't outrageously expensive.

Olympus C-2040 2.1MP

It's a great little camera that has few faults. Easy to use, excellent program mode results, excellent f/1.8 lens, fairly robust case fairly accurate auto-focus/auto-exposure. Bought it a year and a half ago for $229, a steal, from eBay. Use 32MB cards and rechargeable lithium batteries. Bounced it off a picnic table onto rocks last year with no damage.

I'm looking for an Olympus E-10 4.0MP. It has a more heavy-duty aluminum body; a wider-range zoom, and larger screen. The problem, as always, is that I'm not willing to spend $600. When I find one for $350, I'll scoop it! (yeah, RIGHT!!!)

No, Tom... it has no requirement for Cyclos and various grades of polish... or Southern Shine... or moonshine or whatever... the aluminum is tastefully concealed behind some kind of ugly paint finish... sorta like a <gasp> Holiday Rambler!!!!
