    What type of camera do you have? Post information and pictures here. I have a Sony Cyber-shot (2005 model // Digital).

    [​IMG]

    - Carl Zeiss Vario Tessar Lens
    - 4.1 Mega Pixels
    - 3x Optical Zoom

    It's a very nice camera and easy to carry around. Mine is a nice metallic silver color that shines in the sun. Also has many great features.

    So post your camera!

    I know it's not what you meant, but I'm getting a Sony K800i due to the Cyber Shot. Meant to be best camera on a camera phone in existance atm.

    I've got myself a Canon Powershot A520.
    Bought it a year and a half ago for 200 bucks. Now you can find a better one for about... 130 bucks...

    4x optical zoom
    15 FPS movie mode (I really wanna upgrade to a camera with a 30 FPS movie mode, and one that can zoom during said mode)
    And it's 4 Megapixles
    And that's all I know.
    It's done me wonders.

    Haha! exactly the same camera I have!
    Except I don't take it everywhere with me, It's a little too big.
    I have this other camera, Only cost me £70, so I take it to places, so in case it gets lost or broken, it's not my good camera.

    As for digital I have a little polaroid camera that I bought cos it looked good, pictures are crap but it looks good lol.. here it is (yeah the screen comes out like that =]):

    [​IMG]

    But for most of my photography stuff I use this, it's my fathers one but I'm slowly taking over it, he bought it out on Dubai on a stop over to the Philippines , next time he goes out there he's getting me one ^_^

    [​IMG]

    I love it, it's a really good camera, it's even got a really cool tripod with it where you can bend the legs which ever way you like, and it comes with a remote control :D

    a few years ago i worked as a photographer.
    and some advice i have to share with anyone who wants to buy a camera.
    ... don't get confused with MegaPixels. all that means is how big the photo is. most people think that the bigger the megapixels the better quality picture it produces. False! What determins the quality is the CCD, the better the size and quality of that, the better quality picture you will get :)

    I have a few but none of them have image stabilization. I plan to buy a new one of at least 5mp with good stabilization and hopefully CF
