Need new digital camera !!!
« on: July 04, 2004, 08:16:27 PM »
Hello, I just got back from Costa Rica and had my Nikon coolpix 775 camera ripped off in Puerto  Viejo in the alemendra cabinas. Please be careful if you vacation there because I have gone multiple times and things have changed for the worse. Anyhow I need a new camera and I have about $500 to spend and I would like one w/ manual shutter speed adjustment and a decent optical lens size. My coolpix didn't take good concert pics but it did take great normal pics so I was really happy w/ Nikon and the quality of the camera. I would like something to shoot concerts from far and near and action shots and so on but I would definetly consider myself a hobbyist photog. Please help w/ suggestions and thanks.

Sink the above link and check out some shots Ts.com member sexymexi took during a fireworks show using a Canon A60.  I have the Canon A80 it it takes great shots as well.  You may want to consider going Canon.  They have some great stuff going for them and the user menu is a little less "hokey" than the Nikon Cool Pix has been on some of their models.  I love Nikon myself, I have a Nikon N80 SLR, but I wanted to try something new when i purchased my first digi. http://dpreview.com/  is a good website with lots of professional and user reviews.  Its where I did most of my research when I purchased my Canon A80.  I mean it breaks every aspect of the camera down.  Even talks about stuff you dont want to know.  Anyway I hope that this helps...Let us know...

I have a canon powershot A80 as well... and i love it  ;D  The best thing about it is that the little window moves so you can still see what you're taking pics of at different angles.  Also, it uses regular AA batteries, so no expensive batteries/chargers...  Here are a few examples of low light, up close concert photography http://bt.shnshare.org/gallery/cindy

I see how it is Cindy, go and put your Bonneroo moe. shots on your own website! ::) Leave ol' moepics in the dust ;)  I keeeed I keeed. ;)

Some more of the A80 on moepics

I was just playing around with my girlfriends A70 last night at a baseball game.  Quite a lot of tinkering you can do for a "click and shoot" camera.  B/W, manual focus, manual ISO's (only up to 400 speed tho ::)), panorama shot thingie, all sorts of fun stuff to do.. It also takes GREAT daylight run of the mill tourist pictures on auto focus...  Sephia mode was really fun at the game, getting some "old school" looking shots.

Here are some random shots I took Monday with the A70

I vote for Canon as well.   My wife has an Elph which is a small one that takes great pictures.   doesn't do too well in darkness w/o flash.  She's also got a digital rebel which is sweet.
