I can't reveal my secret but I have discovered a method which transforms smoke signals to jpg format.

I'm using an Olympus C4000. Its a 4 megapixal digital camera. I use a 128K smartmedia card. Beats shelling out for film. I take lots more pictures now. The Midwest forum rally pictures were taken with that camera.

Actually......

I now use an antique HP215 1.3 MP, but modern photo editors can do wonders.

I have a FujiFinePix 4700, 3.5 MegaPixel (it's getting old now). Four and five megapixel cameras are getting smaller and cheaper. They're great for novice photographers. I like my camera because it uses AA rechargeable batteries.

Using a sony MVC-CD400 has removable cd-r with 4 megapixal. Or I will use my Minolta 7XI and a scanner. Its so much easier to use the sony when Im going to use them on the pc though.

Olympus C3000 3.3 mega pixils.

Here is a tip. Find the camera you like then go to www.dealtime.com They have some rediculously low prices from some places. Print the lowest price and hit your local stores. So far I'm 3 for three. The Olympus when I bought it listed for $399. Best price I found local was $340. I hit deal time found the low price then hit Traget of all places and out the door for $260.

Sony vid cam. List 399. close out unit. found it on deal time for $250. Hit Target again. $250.

Garmin GPS V. List $499. Garmin had a $75 mail in Rebate. Circuit city had best price loca for $406 AFTER rebate. Found a place on Dealtime that had it for $402 BEFORE the rebate. after tax and the rebate I had it for $$340. Make sure they give the 110% price match guarantee.

Prior to April 2003 = Kodak DC280 2.0 megapixels...old (discontinued) but I LOVED it...until it stopped working after 4-1/2 years...great point & shoot

Since May 2003 = Minolta Dimage7 5.0 megapixels...still getting used to it, too much camera for snapshots, but also use it for work...great camera just more features than needed for hobbiest

Future = will probably get a smaller point & shoot to replace Kodak one...

Lightbulb Sony Mavica

I've used a Sony Mavica FD-90 for over 3 yrs now. To be honest with you..I find it to be very user friendly
I've used a Sony camera in all kinds of harse conditions without fail, from the Extreme Cold of the North Pole region to the extreme heat of the deserts without fail..
I use floppies, tons of them are available..plus the memory sticks.
Couldn't say enough for their products.
ciao

I use an Olympus D-520, a 2.1 megapixal camera. Most of my pictures here have been taken with it. I love the camera. My brother has a D-450 a 1.3 megapixal, that takes pix just as good.

All of the pictures I post here are run through "JPEG Optimizer" first to reduce the file size. This can/does reduce picture quality somewhat. But, turns a 140K size file down to under 40K so folks with dialup don't have to wait the rest of their life for a picture to load.

I have gotten some stunning 8X10's out of this camera, and also my brothers lowly 1.3 mega pixal camera. Some folks insist you need 4 megapixals to produce decent 8X10's, but I say not.
