I dont know a whole lot about still cameras, anyway.... I am looking to buy digital cameras that cost around $250. Anywhere from 4-6 megapixels is fine. I have spent alot of my budget on other stuff and right now I have about $2750 to spend on 10 cameras. Im not worried about the memory cards because I already have a ton of then(all varieties and sizes). <BR> <BR>These need to be simple point and shoot cameras that doesnt require much work. I know the camera with the most megapixels isnt always the best. What brands are good and which should I stay away from? <BR> <BR>In summation, what is the best camera I can get for around $250?

What will you be shooting with the camera ? If your shooting action I'm not very optimistic that you'll find a decent camera for 250.00 <BR> <BR>Take a look at the Canon A-95 but it might be a little over budget. <BR> <BR>check out <a href="http://dpreview.com/" target="_blank">http://dpreview.com/</a> they have a great camera review.

toolfan, <BR> <BR>There are tons of cameras out there for that price and in that megapixel range. bhphotovideo.com is a great place to start shopping. Not the lowest price around, but very reputable. Make sure you don't get import models for cheap $$$. It is tough to point you in a certain direction, because in that price range there is so much available. Sounds like you may need something a little more durable... <BR> <BR>I'm always partial to the companies that make the higher end SLRs...Nikon, Canon, Fuji, etc. <BR> <BR>dtw. <BR><a href="http://www.shannonwilseyphoto.com" target="_blank">www.shannonwilseyphoto.com</a> (our website) <BR>email me if you have more specific questions <BR><a href="mailto:dave@shannonwilseyphoto.com">dave@sha nnonwilseyphoto.com</a>
