    Budget
    >$200

    Size
    doesnt matter

    Features
    im not sure but from what i read the more megapixels the better the quality, so the more the better

    id like to have the standard zoom

    image quality is important probably 10

    Do you care for manual controls? im not sure

    General Usage

    * What will you generally use the camera for? mostly making frame by frame movies

    * Will you be making big prints of your photos or not? probably not

    Will you be shooting a lot of indoor photos or low light photos? most likely

    Will you be shooting sports and/or action photos? maybe a little

    Miscellaneous

    Are there particular brands you like or hate? nope

    Are there particular models you already have in mind? any good ones

    (If applicable) Do you need any of the following special features? (Wide Angle, Image Stabilization, Weatherproof, Hotshoe, Rotating LCD)not sure so im gonna go with no

    Most of the canon cameras have easy settings where the camera pretty much decides for you what it thinks will be the best. When you decide to play around or when you get more fermiliar with the terms of how cameras work and what they do then you can move into manual mode and pretty much do just about anything you want.

    Just about every digital canon camera that you get now has all of these settings.

    Canon has small ones like the SD series that fit in your pocket easy but they use a rechargable pack wich i dont care for. I prefer to use standard batteries so in the future when i decide to sell it or give it to a family member i know they wont have problems with power or specialized high priced packs.

    One thing i found useful is a swivel screen. If your creating movies you may find a creative shot where the swivel LCD comes in handy.
