Arrow Buying My first Digi Cam...



So i narrowed it down to these two cameras...i'm willing to throw down a little mroe than 200 dollars after taxes...so these two came to mind...they look decent..

i'm gonna be using the digi cam mostly to take pix of my frenz/family/vehicles and whatnot..nothing fancy smancy is needed...just something to have and enjoy....send pix online...possibly upload videos to my computer...don't have to be awesome quality...but u get my drift

anywho here is the Canon Powershot A400 3.2MP Digital Camera:

I have the A400, very durable little camera, and it takes awesome pictures. Canon has simply the best lenses out there, and their colour recognition is excellent. PM your email addy and I'll send you some full res pics that I have taken with it.

Oh, and it takes awesome videos with sound, 640x480 size.

I got the A400 too. Pictures turn out better than my old Kodak with the same megapixel rating.

I also have the chance to pick up a used Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera for $150 cash.

Do you guys think this would be a better choice than buying a brand new A400? With the money i save i can always pick up more memory

what do u guys think?

a400 is from the trashy a200 series, id get the olympus, but if you can grab a a75, then get that one for sure, as it tops the rest of your choices.

I have the A400, and it's not trash at all. It takes amasing pictures for it's price. But if you can get an A75 grab it!! It's an awesome cam.

Never said it was, the A200 IS. But since it comes from that model lineup , it is just limited on options, thats all
