Thanks for all the help guys!   Wink I totally forgot about the flash thing (I have halogens, but really hate setting them up: they're on these tall skinny tripod thingies that have a "life of their own! spooky...) Also, if you have a sec? do any/all of these cameras use rechargeable batteries (people always seems to be going on about what a pain in the a. the "battery" thing is!) As well, thanks for keeping the Canuck thing in mind ...our dollar is (still) struggling and not all products that are available in the states are available up here.  Cry Even a lot of folks on eBay won't ship to Canada. (which is odd, but...whatever.) Thanks again.

batteries are a PAIN. that's the main reason i won't invest in a good digital camera and would rather have my slr.

for the jamcam, they take those annoying (expensive) square batteries. I bought a square battery adapter that i thought would work to plug into the wall to use, but it didn;t for whatever reason

the fuji finepix takes AA batteries and  ib bought a couple of rechargable ones. otherwise i use the wall plug.

what sucks the most energy out of batteries is uploading to the computer, so i always plug it in for that

my cybershot u uses sony rechargeable batteries and comes with an 8mb memory card, but you can buy any size you want.  the batteries (they come with the camera and charger) last days and days without recharging, so they are really good for that...

I have a Minolta DiMAGE Xt.  It's very small and you can take damn good pictures with it.  It doesn't have fantastic zoom, but it's good enough.  It came from Costco and it was $270 if I recall correctly.  Not too bad for a digital camera.

It doesn't take conventional batteries, but instead comes with a rechargeable battery pack and charger.  I took it with me yesterday and found that the battery lasted all day if I took most of the pictures with the lcd turned off.

i have a sony cybershot u and i love that camera...though i didn't buy it particularly for taking pictures of products or anything, it does fine with that, too.  the main thing is that it's super small, you can take it anywhere, it holds tons of photos and the battery charges last pretty long, even when using flash.
i've had it about six months now and the dew is not off the rose--still love it to death.

I have a sony mavica. It is okay. My dad gave it to me, so the best part about it that it was free. But it certainly isn't something I would reccomend getting. It is only 1.3 mega pixels. I do use it to take the pictures I put up on my website, and with a little Photoshop help it works alright.

A friend of mine just got a canon elf camera. It is awesome. I was playing with it, and it a great compact size, and it is 3.0 mega pixels. If I were to go buy one I would get a canon.

Samsung Digimax 201

Screen on the back
Video feature
You can change the size of your picture
Easy to upload
The pictures aren't grainy

Takes a bunch of batteries (2 aa)
Only zooms to one setting
Takes a while to turn on

Half of that stuff makes no sense. It is still a good little camera. I take it everywhere. I got it for my birthday.

It has 2.0 mega pixels.

Mine's a Canon Powershot A70, it has a good macro mode and decent A70.. but it takes a bunch of batteries too (4 AAs)
I'd recommend it so check it out Cheesy
The best thing to do is go into a camera store and talk to them, they're usually really helpful and will show you something that meets your needs for the price you want to spend
