I recently bought 2 megapixel Nikon Coolpix 2100's as birthday presents for my wife and our Austrian exchange student. These cameras are very compact and take great pictures. One annoyance is the long delay between pressing the shutter release and actually taking a picture.

I use a Kodak DCS Pro-14n which I borrowed from work for the past 6 months. It has 14 megapixels - which requires a lot of memory and disk space, but is great for big enlargments.

Documentation

After years of using Canon FD 35mm format cameras for documentation (literally hundreds of rolls of film), I bought a Sony Mavica CD 1000 (records to a CD), made exactly one trip out of the US with it, and the recording device crapped out. Huge disapointment.

Have since tried the Kodak line of digitals. I like the compact camera and features, but somewhat of a hassle to download and store individual pics in various different sub-files in the 'puter.

Recently picked up a Sony Mavica FD (floppy disc) for documentation. Works great, instant gratification, I can put 8 640 X 480 pixel shots on a floppy, transfer the one or two (usually) I want to keep, erase the disk, and am ready to shoot again.

Like other choices in life, no one camera will satisfy all needs.

I will keep the Floppy Sony for documentation, the Kodak shirt pocket for vacation, and I foresee never, ever giving up the 35mm Canon film system for important photographs.

Canon Elph S330. 3:1 zoom and fits in a t-shirt pocket. It's 1600 X 1200 2 megapixel works well on my 20" monitor, and prints up to 8 X 10" which is good enough for me.

I have a Nikon CoolPix 880 ... fantastic camera.

3 megapixels ... well calibrated auto modes for just about any situation ... nice and small ... great optics.

Easy point and shoot .. I especially like the "night mode" setting ...

Canon SLR Digital

cdtair:

You might want to rent one first.

I know two people that have them, and both have a common complaint.

The delay between shutter release and picture capture.

Now, these units were purchased a couple of years ago, but both of the photographers are very frustrated over "lost shots" because of the capture delay.

I hope they have found a cure for this.

We have an HP Photosmart320 2.1MP w/ 4X zoom. A great little camera for point and shoot. I use a Camcorder and an ancient 35mm camera for my more serious photography needs. Anything going on the internet gets taken digitally. I look a little strange, though, when I show up with my VHS camcorder, two cameras, and three tripods...Kind of like Channel 2 news or something- film at 11.

camera

I had the Nikon Coolpix 5700 until it was stolen recently. Great zoom and optics at 5 megpxls. However, same complaint, push the shutter button and there was a delay on snapping the picture.

I use a Canon S40 and have been very pleased with it. I have had mine for over two years and still think that it's a great camera. In addition to that, I have had no problems with it.

Nikin D-100

I have a Nikon D-100, a professional grade digital SLR camera. It had a big price tag but well worth every penny. It has done everything that I ask and more. The best part is that I can use my Nikon lenses on it and it takes pictures continuously, there is no delay. It has every setting of a film 35 mm camera and does more. I've owned a lot of cameras over the years and so far this camera is my favorite. The ability to shoot motion is invaluable and the camera has survived rafting trips, hiking, mountain biking, etc. I keep it in a waterproof Pelican case and it take EVERYWHERE.

For a simple point and shoot camera I would recommend the Canon Elph series.

I have added a few pages to the Owner's Guide Touring section at
http://sierranevadaairstreams.org/owners-guide/touring/
about image editing, digital cameras, and picture sharing on the web.

There might be some information of interest or some links of utility - if you have any constructive criticism, please let me know.

The camera used for a lot of pictures on that site is a Nikon CoolPix 950

The best site I've found for this is Digital Photography Review. In addition to the reviews, there are good articles, as well as very active Forums, where you can get opinions and advice.
