    I ended up with the Kyocera L3v and so far I really like it!! It had a larger LCD Screen (2.5) yet it's still a compact camera!! It has 3.2 MP's and 3.0 optical zoom whice should be plenty for us.....

    So far it seems very easy to use!!!

    I was looking at the Sony's and Cannon's and was a little leary of the not well known brand but after searching DPreview I saw it stacked up pretty well!!

    Check out for tons of info!!!!

    I use the old Sony FD-95. It works awesome for long distance shots but as a whole it is outdated.

    I was considering the Canon EOS 10D...
    I had thought about the Rebel but was worried I would want the other options later that were left off for expense.

    I had not seen the Sony DSC-F828 until it was mentioned here, seems to be cheaper with better lens and more resolution is anyone familure with these units and why I would want one over the other.

    My other question is CompactFlash Vs Microdrive?

    I just went through the same process so here's what I can offer.....

    Check out this site:
    It has extensive reviews and sample pictures for virtually every single digital camera.

    The site helped me decide on a recent purchase of a Canon A70 ($299). Before purchasing the camera, I was comparing 3 to 5 megapixel Kodaks, Sonys, and Canons in the $300-$400 range. The Kodaks and Sonys were great cameras, but they did not offer the advanced manual controls like the Canons. You should go to a store and play around with the cameras. See how the cameras feel in your hands, play around with the menus, buttons, and controls and determine which feels best to you.

    The main deciding factor for me was picture quality. I printed out several 4x6 sample pictures (from the above website) of the same scene (indoor & outdoor) from a variety of cameras. All of the pictures from the cameras were very sharp and impressive. However, when comparing the pictures side by side, the kodaks seemed underexposed, the Sonys appeared overexposed, and the Canon pictures seemed just right. In fact the 3mp Canon had better quality pictures in terms of color, tone and exposure than the 4mp and 5mp kodak & Sony cameras. Obviously, these images could be touched up in Photoshop, but I'd rather spend my time taking nice photos than in front of my computer editing photos. Basically, the only benefit of having a 4 or 5mp camera is if you intend on printing high quality photos greater than 8"x10". Otherwise, a 3mp camera will suit you just fine.
    Some other things to keep in mind--
    Your camera will not come with adequate memory. You should purchase a 256mb card--adequate for short video clips and photos. On my 3mp Canon I think I have room for 200-300 pictures on the highest setting and a few thousand on the lowest setting.
    You should have 2 sets of rechargable batteries. One in the camera and one for backup.
    You may need to purchase a camera bag.

    I have a Nikon Coolpix and a Canon Sureshot. The Canon is real small, takes good pictures, but is slow and you need your glasses on to use it . The Nikon has no down side.

    Got mine last year around christmas, first time for a digi so i went with an easy to use kodak ls443 it has 4.0 megapixels, 10x zoom 3x optical, 3.3x advanced digital, video/audio, lowlight auto focus.size is no bigger than a a 35mm throw away camera so easy to cary as well. Fow what it gets used for it is great. Also got the portable printer for it, so as soon as you snap them you can preview and print without having to be around a comp. it has built in memory along with a memory card slot.

    I hear if you refinance with Pioneer Savings and throw in a few drinks and shrimp they offer one as a free gift.

    Great seeing every one again. Make sure you get a good camera for all the pictures you take of us this year.
