    Hi whl,

    The camera in your price range that provides the most amount of features is the A520 ($213 at the Circuit City web site just barely gets it in). It's one of the few that give you a...

    It kinda depends on how many megapixels you need, combined with just how low is inexpensive to you. IOW you can get a tiny Canon SD200 for a hair over $200, but it's 3.2mp might not be enough for...

    Hi Paul88,

    Kodak has several models that can easily be found at many internet sites for under $100. I think the model #'s are 7330 and C300. Dell has them for about $85 at their web site. ...

    As with any camera, how fast a shutter speed you can get is determined by how much light you have. Since you cannot tell us how much light you will have, the only thing I can tell you is that the...

    One of the SD500's strengths is the large number of megapixels, however this is not useful for you since you won't be making big prints. Therefore the only strength of this camera for your...

    One more to add to that list: the Nikon 4800, which has an 8x zoom.

    Although the Z3 isn't the most popular example of it's class, I have yet to see something that said it was "bad". For an amateur who just wants to take snapshots and movies, it would be fine. If it...

    Nothing wrong with a Sony P at all, but when you can buy a Canon A510 for $175 from newegg.com, I just couldn't see buying a P73. However, there is a great difference in form and appearance, so that...

    There aren't many small 7mp cameras to choose from in the first place, and you can remove the SD500 from your list because it does not have manual controls, and you can also remove the Fuji F-10...

    Although there are some excellent cameras under your $200 limit, I should point out that no camera in that price range has IS, and IMO none of them will give you 9-10 rated images (although the...

    Is the price for the S1 for a new camera? If so, that would be a very good buy. The S1 will give you the most flexibility of all your choices, and from what I hear has a very good movie mode. ...

    It's not that people are tired of the vs. threads -- think about what you just wrote. You want a reply from people who have both. Why in the world would the average person buy two cameras that are...

    Nikon 4600. Focuses as close as 1.6". Under $200, and uses AA's. Check the review over at the Steve's digicam site...

    There aren't any fixed-lens cameras that meet your requirements. None of them will give you 10-rated images, and certainly none of the ultra-zooms will. There is the F-10 mentioned above, but it...

    Although the cameras listed above are indeed quite nice, I doubt that you will be able to purchase a new H1 or S2 IS within your stated budget. Of the IS-equipped megazooms under your $400 limit, I...

    Cameras such as the FZ5 and the like have zoom lenses that go to around 435mm. A 300mm telephoto on a Pentax *istDS would equate approx. 450mm (I don't know what the conversion factor of the N50 is,...

    You won't find a compact point&shoot that combines image stabilization and wide-angle. You can find one or the other, but not both. The Fuji F-10 mentioned above does not have either IS or...

    S2:
    likes -- uses AA's. Supposedly good video mode (I don't do video).
    dislikes -- larger than an FZ3/4/5.

    FZ20:
    likes -- lots of zoom, constant f/2.8 at all focal lengths
    dislikes --...

    Baseball shots require high shutter speeds, probably in excess (faster) than 1/400 sec., even faster if you want to freeze a batter's swing. A fixed-lens point&shoot such as an H1 does not have the...

    There aren't a lot of compacts w/rotating lcd. The Pentax Z750 is one, and it has a 5x zoom and manual exposure controls as well. The Canon A95 would arguably be a better choice, but unfortunately...

    Those are all great cameras. Unless you happen to need image stabilization (nothing about your post indicated you would need IS), how would you choose?

    A few comments...

    Nothing with the zoom you require will be weatherproof. However, some do have available underwater cases. Also, no mega-zoom in your price range will have a metal case.

    I'm getting the impression that you are referring to the S2 as an "SLR". The term slr refers to the type of 35mm camera where you can change lenses. If one is...
