I've been shooting with my dad's Camera, and I am going to ask for one for x-mas but I need it to be somewhat affordable (under $1000) what is the best digital cam I can get? (with a min of 5-6 megapixels) Or is that even possible?

You might want to check out the Canon Rebel 300D (6.3 mega pixel) which released pretty recently. A digital SLR for under $1000.

I know lots of people with canon cameras and they say nothing but good things about them. I now have a Canon s45 - great camera. I wouldn't recommend this camera for you Bess considering you probably need something a bit more professional. <BR>

Keep in mind that a 6 megapixel camera is gonna fill those memory cards in an instant. What does a 1 gig flash card cost now days? $250? My S45 is 4 megapixels and I rarely use the highest quality photo setting. I get about 400 pictures on a 250mb flash card.

Root, <BR> <BR>I've accepted the the fact that when all the posts start looking the same, I'm probably spending way too much time on this site!

i just got a sony Cyber-Shot, 5 mega pixels, charger, batteries, usb port cable for about $400

thats a great camera (the sony cyber-shot), thats what I'm shooting with right now, its my Dad's. Maybe I'll just ask for them to give me their camera for x-mas... I dunno, I have a lot left to learn about dig. photography. B4 I go investing in couple thousand dollar camera.

check out the fuji finepix 3800 , 3mega , 6X optical zoom , takes small vid clips(not good quality but then again none under 1000 clams are good at both-for that much you could have a bad vid and still cam). You can find them on the net for between 300 and 450 with goodies. Got mine for a bit more at best buys with case and 128meg card. Had good reviews on the net too.
