    Cam Question (PhotoJohn and anyone else)

    I'm lookin for a new digital cam and I narrowed it down to a few choices so I thought I'd get some opinions on my picks. Mostly for biking (obviously) but for other stuff too....hot chicks, cars, big trucks, hot chicks etc etc (did I say hot chicks?) Anyway here they are and why I dig each one...

    1.) Minolta Z3 (my fav so far) - (about 360.00) Cool black rubberized casing, 4Meg, 12x Zoom, anti shake, big monitor, tons of setting features (comes with free beginner photography class), excellent pic quality, not as compact tho

    2.) Nikon 4600 - inexpensive ((160.00), 4Meg, big 1.8" monitor, compact (easily fits in camelbak), very good pic quality, very easy to use

    3.) Fuji S5100 - (285.00) 4Meg, 10x zoom, 1.5" monitor, Rugged casing also, tons of settings, no image stabilizing, mem. card is expensive, good pic quality also

    Let me know what you guys think....I like the Nikon (mainly because it's inexpensive and compact enough to fit in my pack) but I don't mind spending more money for a better camera. I'm sort of a gadget fanatic so I dig the Minolta the most. If anyone has any experience with any of these cams, let's hear your reports. Thanks a lot guys.

    I'm a Canon fan myself. I have had great luck with a variety of different Canon cameras. They have always given me my moneys worth. Check out Canon's www site. They make some good compact cameras. Good luck.

    I asked photo-John the same question a few days ago and his response for a digi camera around $350 was: Casio Exilim EX-Z750 ($400-450) or Sony DSC W7 ($400)

    I was too until I got my ZR-85 (digital Video)....which incidently is back at Canon right now being repaired and it's got MAYBE 5 hours on it. Really crappy video in anything less than perfect lighting and if you adjust it for low light or sports (high speed) filming the video is so grainy it's unreal. Not impressed with this camera at all.

    (which is why I'm looking for a good still cam)

    LoL @ My name is JJ too.

    Word. I'll check it out and read the reviews. 7.1 Meg camera for under 400 bones sounds like a deal. Mucho appreciation for the tip good sir.
